Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a great site and I have found many friends, and cousins that I didn't know I had and I cherish each one.
Thank you all for the beautiful tokens on my family & friends sites. I appreciate them all.

I am looking for any Sanders contacts/family from Blount County Alabama or any of the Graves family from Blount County Alabama.

I am also looking for anyone with information On Jay and Louise Ivery (Louise Thompson Ivery)
They have a son Joe who passed away in a car accident and he was married with a baby when he passed away - he has a sister, Pat ? that lived in Georgia.

You may notice from my sponsorship that I have a very warm soft spot for all animals. I believe that our Lord gave each and every dog, cat, ferret
and your choice of pet for us all to take care of and cherish until they take the trip to to Rainbow Bridge. I asked a good friend of mine, a good ole Baptist preacher what happened when a pet passed away, where did they go. He replied "they are all waiting for us, what else would a forgiving Lord do". I cried, just remembering how may pets I have had during my lifetime and how wonderful it will be to hug them and play with them again.(thank you Alan, I needed to hear that) Of course I miss my family that have gone before me, but I know I will be with them soon and knowing all the animals I have loved will be there too just makes it that much more comfortable.

My Dad

and a very special cousin
Martin Hasting Graves.

Thank you all for the tokens from everyone they are very much appreciated.

And to the memorials that I leave notes on - I know these things are possible - I have smelled my Mom's parfume 3 times - when I was at my lowest White Shoulders and there was no way that scent can be just blowing in out of the wind. I have only once felt my husband when I was at my very lowest - didn't think I wanted to be here any more and he popped me on my butt, lol he knew that made me a bit irate. I never told anyone until my best friend was visiting here from AZ and she was alone in the kitchen - same place I was and when I came back home she was white as a ghost and told me what happened and I laughed and told her I knew who popped her on the tail!! It was Vince.

Thank you,

RE: Sending you prayers
Hello my sweet friend!

So touched to read your message!
Your kind words and Prayers are much appreciated.
I've missed my F.A.G family so much, I'm trying to get back on my feet and take one day at a time.
Caring Earth Angels like yourself really make all the difference.

Angel Hugs,

RE: Amazing news
Hi Debra,

Just wanted to let you know that the remains of a girl you've sponsored, Jo Eunhwa, have been recovered, and she will be returned to her family. The search crews have also found a person in the section of the ship designated for the general public (so, either Kwon Jaegeun, Kwon Hyeokgyu or Lee Yeongsuk).

Thank you for your continued prayers. I hope that the rest of the missing victims are recovered soon.

Amazing news
Hi Debra,

Just wanted to tell you that there's been another update in the Sewol recovery efforts. An almost complete set of remains was discovered in the 4th floor girls' bathroom. This is most likely one of the two missing female students. The remains have been sent away to DNA testing, which will take about a month.

Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers,
