Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, and graduated from Edsel Ford High School in 1981. I married my second husband, Steve in 1989. We now live in a suburb of Detroit with our three dogs: Lucy, Desi, and Rosie.

As you can see, I have sponsored many memorials here. I do this first, to help support this free website. Second, to honor this person and have a lasting connection to them. And third, so that people can later add more photos to the memorial. Please do not transfer memorials to me, unless I have requested that. I would much rather the memorial be transferred to a family member or friend of the deceased.

I have set up memorial pages for my Dad, Henry T. Ryan, and my best friend, Sandra Kay Botts. I have made a virtual cemetery for them together. My Dad passed away in 2001 and Sandy passed away in 2006.

I have also created memorial pages for Sandy's dogs and mine. I made a virtual cemetery for them titled, "My Beloved Dogs." Four of the dogs, listed with the last name "Botts", are Sandy's dogs. The other nine dogs listed are my beloved dogs.

I have also made a virtual cemetery for Dean Martin and his family. I sponsered both his parent's memorial pages, his brother William and his wife, Josephine, and also Dean's daughter, Claudia.

I have also made a virtual cemetery for Desi Arnaz and his family. I have also sponsored his second wife Edith's memorial page. I am a fan of Desi Arnaz and named my black poodle, "Desi", in honor of him. Desidario is his formal name, the actor and my dog.

I love our country and being an American. I have a lot of respect for our Veterans, past and present. I have created a virtual cemetery for Veterans. Please visit some of these Veterans who have been an important part of our country's freedom.

RE: Your Dad's Angel Day
I have never been to Michigan. My grandson is a Michigan fan even though we live in Ohio where most everybody wears Ohio State shirts. He went to Michigan last month with his mom for a visit. The weather here today was great for the cookout. We had lots of laughs. My dad always yelled 18 months Korea when he wanted us to do something. I think the war really had an impact on him. It was nice talking to you and thanks again for taking time to do all that you do for the veterans.

RE: Your Dad's Angel Day
Thank you Renee for caring and sending my dad tokens. My dad was a Korean War vet, he loved to tell stories. I am hoping the rain stays away from our cookout but we do have shelter if need be. Thanks again for your kindness.

RE: Great News
Hi Renee - thanks so much for visiting my daughter's memorial. We miss her very much and Mother's day is always hard for Sarah and Becky, especially. I sent a note to your friend, Just Kate... I was on a Harley ride across Michigan several years ago from Hell, Michigan to Birch Run and then across Michigan to Grand Rapids and I took in the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum there and his burial place is next to the museum - very interesting and historic! Back surgery takes time to heal so be careful and don't rush things. My bro has had three back surgeries (service connected - 82nd Airborne) and he is doing great but does have to carefully watch his limitations with lifting and other activities. Let me know if and when you/hubby make it to Fairmount, Indiana where James Dean is buried (Park Cemetery) and our daughter, Marjory... Have a wonderful summer ahead, take care - catch you later, Renee - Tom
