♥Blessed Are The Animals♥


“Forgotten? No, we never do forget:
We let the years go; wash them clean with tears,
Leave them to bleach out in the open day,
Or lock them careful by, like dead friends' clothes,
Till we shall dare unfold them with less pain,—
But we forget not, never can forget.”

― Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

My memorials give me somewhere to bring my grief, and to express my wish to honor those who have gone.
I no longer live near any of 'my' cemeteries and Find a Grave is a place where I can come and be just a grieving mother or daughter, and others always understand me. My heart will always have a Rhysa shaped hole in it, which nothing can ever fill.
If you have lost someone precious to you, I ask God's courage and comfort for you, this is my prayer.

♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥

ღThank Youღ from my heart to each dear soul who has visited and left flowers and kind thoughts for my daughter,
Rhysa D Overton (Sep & Feb) -
my mother Thelma Norean Sides Benton (Dec & May) and others in my family.

i thank you God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Are you a friend or relative of someone listed in my memorials?
Many of my memorials are related in some way to me, but many are not. All my memorials, however, are made with very great personal respect and the most loving intentions, the goal ALWAYS being to honor the memory of some dear person.
I will consider every request for transfer.
❀❀❀
If you'd like me to remove or modify a memorial I have made for your family member I will happily do so.
If you should wish a photo removed that I have added, please just leave me a note and it will be promptly and cheerfully (✿◠‿◠) deleted.

***☺ If I can help with aged or damaged photo(s) of yours, anything I can do is freely offered. Just post it on any memorial of yours and tell me where to find it. I download a copy and the original is of course untouched.


"Earth's fairest flowers grow not on sunny plain,
But where some vast upheaval rent in twain
The smiling land . . . .
After the whirlwinds devastating blast, after the molten fire and ashen pall, God's still small voice breathes healing over all.
From riven rocks and fern-clad chasms deep, flow living waters as from hearts that weep.
There in the afterglow soft dews distill and angels tend God's plants when night falls still,
Little children passing by that way
Will gather lilies at the break of day."
--J.H.D.


IN MY FAERIE GARDEN
"Just living is not enough" said the butterfly fairy, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."
-Hans Christian Anderson-

My husband and I are rattie and ferret people and have for years adopted from the local rescues and shelters.
The ones we bring home are otherwise not likely to be adopted due to age and/or medical issues.
We give and get tons and tons of love :). Ferrets are soft and cuddly and affectionate and just awesome, playful little love bugs.
Over the years there have been 43 ferrets (plus others...dogs, cats, ratties, mousies, birdies, fishies, gerbils and degus) in our family circle, each one a beautiful little spirit.
Our lives have been and are enriched beyond all measure by the presence of our fuzzies.
Each furbaby brings something unique and special to our family, and we are so thankful for the privilege. You will find our rainbow babies listed in My Faerie Garden virtual cemetery.
I am a long time vegan, and all God's creatures are near to my heart.
~~
*A wonderful quote shared with me by PURPLE~LADY, it's so True:
"Love is more than words, it is demonstrated thru actions. Love is manifested in the day-to-day occurrences of small kindnesses & spoken words. Love is lending a patient ear and taking time to care." ~Anonymous~

Happy New Year! =)
Dear Sue,
Gannon and I want to wish you a very Happy New Year, we hope that it brings you better health and lots of love and blessings. We are doing better - I was beginning to wonder about how things go when there was a week that Gannon and I were both in the hospital at the same time, and then our little dog had to have emergency surgery at the same time!!!! But we have crested over that bump in the road, and looking forward to the new - my book moves closer to publication, and we have quite a few publications this month and in the next few weeks - if you Google me with the publication Houseboat - Featured Poet, The Lake (with my name and the word poetry), Subprimal Arts Poetry (with my name and the word audio, for an audio recording of my poetry), youll see a few reprints of poetry about Gannon and River, and quite a few other poems from the book. =) So I am staying busy, even if we are in bed quite a bit right now...were always aware of how lucky we are to be able to rest! Take good care, and remember how much you are loved and appreciated, Friend - hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

Rev Jewell Pratt
I knew Sis. Pratt when I was a preteen, back in 1960's. We, my sister, parents & I attended the Church of God that was near the Wabash river, the old church. My daddy helped in building on an addition to the old church.
We knew her and her husband, a very quite man, Bro. Ed Pratt and their son, I believe his name was Terry.
I, along with my sister & mom, had visited her again in 1990's. Sis. Pratt used to have a little dog, a chiwawa. That little dog would nip at your ankles.

Get Well Soon
Dear Sue,
I am so glad to see you online - I knew that you were under the weather, but e-mail is not going through at your private e-mail...If you feel like it, please privately message me with an update on how you are doing, Friend. I also want you to know, Sue, that I have been having an issue re harassment on here - to the point that I have complaints filed both on this site and elsewhere -, and I have had to take down some of my pages, etc. - please try me through my private e-mail before opening yourself up to the same issues by leaving a public message. The last thing you need is more stress right now...at any rate, Gannon and I are sending lots of love and hugs, and as always, thank you so much for always thinking of us and our angels. Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue
