♥Blessed Are The Animals♥


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

♥"It's not about how you look, it's about how you see."♥

“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

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."

"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~

No thank yous ever needed or expected for flowers I leave - you are s☺ welcome - it is such an honor and JOY ヅ to "make my rounds" and scatter a little love❣ I am not able to answer every message but please know how deeply I appreciate yours!

Memorial for Sarah (Amanda) Webb Gilliland
Please help me to understand the memorial that is posted for Sarah Webb Gilliland wife of Hiram Jackson Gilliland. Her death date is listed as 1856 in DeKalb Co, AL; however, her place of burial is listed as Magnolia Cemetery in Mobile, AL.

Hiram Jackson Gilliland is still listed in the 1860 Census in either DeKalb/St. Clair Co, AL. He did not die until 1864/65 at which time he was buried in Magnolia Cemetery and has a Confederate Monument.

I this place of burial for Sarah Webb Gilliland possibly a mistake?

Thanks for your reply.

Easter Hugs and Prayers
Dear Sue,
I am a few minutes past midnight getting this to you, but the love and hugs are no less sincere...hope that you are feeling better! We are fine, doctor stuff and writing stuff are both really keeping us busy. I want to tell you that after all these years, my publisher really felt that I should have a website up, and so we are going to try it - it is and if you click to it, you'll see photos, my publications all in one place (it will take us awhile to do that last one, but we hope to have at least fifty or so links up by this time next week)...although there is a store, please do not buy anything, if you would like copies of anything, do let me know and I will be honored to send them your way. Please let us know how you are, and have a good week ahead - Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue
