UPDATED MARCH 7, 2014 -|
Thank You to member Margaret Kumma for allowing me to list a name from her own pages; her pages are somewhat overlooked and I was telling her that I am sure if folks knew they were 'there', she'd have plenty of tokens and visitors just like that. =) Please visit this gentleman, and from there you will see the links to other pages:
Robert R. 'Rick' Dalton
This little one has a BIRTHDAY and ANGEL DAY on the same date, March 6th - Thank You to David for bringing this page to my attention. We will take care of the little one's page from now on...

This gentleman has an ANGEL DAY on February 18th, thanks to Dawn for allowing me to highlight her father's page:
Jacob A. Hughes
Thank You to Sue for reminding us of an artist/illustrator deserving of not only birthday blessings but prayers for a safe journey - if you read anything as a child, you'll know him:
Please visit this woman - the oldest Holocaust survivor - and read her astonishing story; there are also links to her husband and son. Daddy's Girl has continued to place online memorial pages and stories of victims of the Holocaust, and it does not matter what faith you are: You will find hope, love and wonder in any one of her pages that you take a moment to visit:

Here is the page of a HERO; Thank You to Sue for bringing it to my attention. I completely agree with her in that there should never, ever be a memorial page for one of our military men or women with this few tokens:
Also from Sue, another casualty of Vietnam with less than ten tokens...Please stop to tell Mr. Armstrong that he is remembered:
This HERO, a Navy veteran, has a wonderful page and story - Thank You to Richard's family for allowing me to highlight his name:

Bruce A. Byle
Site friend Sue just did a BEAUTIFUL job on repairing one of my mother's photos, a photo that even professional services gave up on - if you'd like to see what her kindness and magic can do, my mom's page is linked first, and then Sue's own daughter, Rhys, is linked for visits and tokens:
Anna Jean "Jeannie" Ricks
Rhysa Dawn 'Rhys' Overton
Thank You to site friend Beth for this young lady's name - so many angels gone so soon in my highlight scroll this time, I know...please visit with prayers and blessings:

Also, while I am thinking of it, I truly want to say Thank You to Jim, Mike and others who keep stepping up to the bat for me when I message them with a "Please draw attention to this page!"...and the sponsorships come in.

Gannon and I love every one of you. =)

|SSBJ||RE: Mom's Photo|
♥ڿڰۣಌ ƜƖƬӇ ԼƠƔЄ ♥ڿڰۣಌ
Hi Rhonda :)
You're welcome!!! I'm so happy you like the photo. Know what you mean about fixing an image sometimes making it worse - do you still have the unretouched images? If you do, I may be able to make better repairs than with the ones already worked on.
I think the difference is that I work one click at a time on the damaged areas addressing a pixel or small group of pixels at a time leaving the loveliness of the basic image intact. There are many options, I can sharpen and give it more contrast, a bit of saturation, etc. Do you have the original images, damage and all?
Never hesitate to ask, I love doing it.
You and River and Gannon Blue are ever in loving prayers every single day...always remember when the going is tough.

I have been off the grid myself. Busy with work and so forth right now no names will get with you later on that.
Hope your eye issue is resolved positively; just in case it doesn't, remember you are a good writer and mother. I had an aunt who was 95% blind half of her life; she inherited from a great grandfather and she cooked and cleaned house by herself. As an aid, her husband put a rope for her to follow if needed. Her name is Ethel (nee Garver) Reynolds if you want to read.
Hi to Gannon, too.
Wishing you and he the best,
|Daddy♥s Girl||125902930 Erik Blegvad|
Hi Rhonda & GB,
As a writer, you probably know who Erik is. Sadly, he's gone now, but his illustrations for 100 children's books are his legacy. Will you please send people to visit and vote for him?
Thank you so much!!
|With Love Always, Edith||Baby Boy Duckworth|
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sponsoring my baby uncle's memorial. Little ones like him, are very often forgotten as time goes by. You have a kind and generous spirit; now Baby has heart by his name, thanks to you. :o)
|Sherry Reynolds||Hi Again|
Gannon sure was a cute little boy. I like your profile photo. fyi...I changed telecommunications carriers and have start up issues. At least, I hope they are start up.
More than happy to, Rhonda. Best to you and Gannon.
I agree that you are one in a million! Thank you for all you do on here!
