Bio and Links
I grew up in the Greater New York area. The majority of interments that I have done for Find a Grave are of children who have passed away young and whose memory, after the passing of as many as 10 years, seems to be forgotten. Some of these children I remember from the newspapers, who were memorialized in print but who today are largely forgotten. Four other children were family members of mine who, though they died of natural causes, likewise are scarcely remembered. But their stories have touched me and have stayed always in my heart. I hope that these memorials shall be a living tribute to all of them. These children deserve to be remembered and honored, to be given a sense of dignity and love in death that was so denied to them in life.

God bless you for creating the memorial for Billy Gaffney. He came to my attention quite by accident and hasn't left my thoughts since. I wanted somehow to express my grief and outrage and this is how I found Find A Grave. I am also a bereaved parent and this site has been a God send. If not for you I wouldn't have known Find A Grave existed and for this I deeply thank you. Gratefully Allison Ford

Roxanne Felumero
Hello. I thought you might like to know that little Roxanne has a great-niece, Roxanne Rose Felumero. My daughter and her husband, Anthony, named her for his aunt. This little Roxanne, however, has never known a day where she has not been surrounded by people who love her more than their own lives. Thank you for taking the time to memorialize this child whose life ended so terribly, and whose blood lives on in my beloved grandchild.

I added two photo's of this child, they are an artist drawing and a clay model on what she looked liked. I thought it would help to add to the memorial. Hope thats alright with you.

I Am Amazed
I, today, found this site quite by accident. As I was reading the entries, and feeling my heart break for those children who suffered such horrible deaths, I found the name of one child of whom I have knowledge. It has brought an awakening to my heart and more information to my mind that has given me clarity of thought. Thank you for making it possible for me to grieve that for which I previously knew so little. No child should ever have to suffer at the hands of any adult, and for each precious life listed here, I am so thankful they are now in the hands of God.
