RE: TIFFANY MARTINEZ Radhe, Radhe, dehi pada; pallavam uddaram! Radha, Radhe give me your lotus feet, so that I may place Them upon my head! Sweet sister! Every day is a new day filled with wonder. I have even learned to endure my sorrows with grace and dignity, understanding that it is an arrangement of Sri Krsna for me to learn and grow! Blessings!
RE: TIFFANY MARTINEZ Dear Friend, I left some Nag Champa ("many flowers") incense burning, on the ground next to her marker. The maker of this incense, which brings vibes of Peace and Love, was named Satya Baba, and he recently abandoned his body to the dismay of his thousands of followers. Thank you for your kind words, I do all I do with love and total surrender to the divine. I became a member of F.A.G. to be able to deal with the passing of my father, who died in Cuba, and I could not go to his funeral/burial. I heard the news on the radio. My favorite place to visit every sunday as a child growing up pin Cuba was, as I called it, "the city of the dead", El Cementerio de Colon. My dad, German Pinelli, now rests there. I formalized my life-long interest in cemeteries and the monuments we build to the departed, in college. My thesis was a comparison of monuments in New England (I was in the Connecticut/Vermont/Massachusetts area) and the Deep South (Miami Cemetery, Second Avenue, where the Burdines and the Flaglers are buried. It consisted of written research about the symbols on the stones as well as photos and rubbings. As a Hindu (Hare Krisna) I have paid for arrangements to have my remains cremated. I do not know what plans God has for me. But I have had a very deep respect for the departed since childhood, and our last act of human kindness to all of them is REMEMBRANCE. That is why I love F.A.G., because it gives me the opportunity to help others with their grief process, which I believe to be a life-long phenomenon. I have been 'working' Vista for more than a year, and the staff is lovely; they all get boxes of Nag Champa from me as a thank-you gift. If you are ever down this way, let me know. With blessings and wishes for peace. :D
TIFFANY MARTINEZ Hello, I returned to Vista today to locate this baby's marker. I photographed the mausoleum/rotunda because "BABYLAND IV" are the interments around this building. When I went to upload the photo of the grave that I had taken, I saw you had already photographed the marker. Here is a helpful hint about a technique I use to make the marker look nicer...I splash a bit of water on so it looks shiny, not worn...Also, since I did not create the memorial, I cannot edit the info. The correct place is BABYLAND IV, #19-3. :D
TIFFANY MARTINEZ Hello, I am the F.A.G. volunteer who 'works' Vista Memorial Gardens. Today I went to BABYLAND I but did not find a marker for Tiffany. I placed a photo of the angel who watches over BABYLAND I.
