Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
Thanks for visiting my profile. My name is Ruth and I have been married for 22 years to the love of my life Glen. I have a wonderful baby dog named Sancho, and that is about everything that occupies my life.I came upon find a grave in 2005, and my first entry was my cousin Claudia. I have added some of my family to find a grave, but still have many more to go. That will all happen in due time.
I am a member of a flower circle, and I enjoy visiting find a grave memorial pages.
I enjoy the history and the memories that those have passed leave for the rest of us. I visit many of the local cemeteries and as I walk through them it is important for me to remember the names I pass in thought and prayer, even if I did not know them in this life. I live in Orange County, CA. so if there is anyone out there that would like to have me visit a local cemetery to capture a photo for you, please let me know and I will try my best to help you out.

I am trying to get photos of Vietnam vets from this web page over to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Page.(the virtual wall) if you find any please visit and submit their photo.

Thank you, and love to you.

Your Vietnam 7
On a list I'd saved of the seven men killed on the day you were born, you have Grover Taylor listed, but he's not on the list you have on here now. Have you found all of them yet?
Hope your new year is a good one!

Angel day thank you, Matthew Clark

Grief is itself a medicine. - William Cowper

If I would have read this 12 years ago, I would have spit on the ground and screamed, are you crazy? In 12 years I have had a lot of medicine.

A medicine is a remedy, a remedy is therapy, that relieves pain, cures disease, or corrects a disorder.

So if you believe William, I have been suffering with a disorder and my medicine or remedy is grief. Seriously, grief spans out in front of our lives like a highway in the desert. It goes off into the sunset only to return with the dawn.

Just as you are about to except grief, the medicine of grief returns to be another almost road block in life. I have no idea where I am going with this. I know there is something to communicate here but I just can't find the words.

Maybe it's the Mary Poppins version of "just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down." You have been my spoon full of sugar on my fathers Angel Day.

You made it better and bearable and once again I was not alone on these tragic memorable days but you were all here with me. Thank you for the sugar and the willingness to be a part of today.

Cyber Hugs,

"Larry" William Brown, Magnolia MemPark
Aloha Ruth! Terry here. I was going through adding photos to the Magnolia Memorial Park's (Garden Grove, Ca.) memorials when i noticed that your memorial for LABRY WILLIAM BROWN (# 16867249) has him named as "LARRY." Thought i would bring this to your attention for correction. Thanx for your time and have a great day!

Matthew Clark my Dad...
I want to express my gratitude for being with me during my Dads Birthday. The flowers and tokens help me keep it all in perspective.

I know my Dad would appreciate your kind gestures and the notes you left for me. He spoke often of the goodness in people. He always told me that it was OK to reach out to others when I needed to.

You proved that true, in a world that sometimes is harsh when you ask for things, you allowed me ask. It helps me to know I have many friends that understand my grief. Thank you all so much for your kind words, and most of all, for your friendship. Because of that friendship, hope surrounds me. Hope is life, you have given me hope.

With love,

Happy Thanksgiving!

America has had many fine moments. Our ability to love, to create and defend peace and safety to the world is our strength for brighter days.

It has always been at a great sacrifice to our nation but we stand on principal. We are Americans, our ancestors came on ships, and unthinkable hardships followed. We founded a county that stands on faith, hope and love.

As we enter the holidays and this Thanksgiving I remember that we do have golden wings, sailing on freedoms wind across the sky.

Thank you for friendship, hope and love, as we stand together as one people, we are thankful for our family's and futures yet to come.

We have not seen our finest moment, WE are our finest moment.


for you

Golden Dream - A Tribute

I woke up this morning with the clear idea that I was not going to get weird and troubled about my Dad's death. That it has been 11 years, and that I have survived his death and almost my Mothers death. Although I often have feelings of despair when I start my day, I was going to get all my errands done and get about life.

Not an uneventful life today ether. Last night for the second time I was walking with my dog and was attacked by a pit bull.

The aftermath was going to be a lot of errands. My dog had to go to the vet, and the doggie cleaners. I had to see my Dr. for an antibiotic and the day was going to be filled with running around.

Today was cloudy and dark with a pale gray sky, and it has been snowing on and off. The driving was good, the roads were clear. When I was going to pick up the dog from the cleaners, I was alone in the car, I realized how quiet it was. That type of quiet where you think you can hear molecules hitting you ear drums.

I looked to my right and coming down a large snow pilled hill was a dear. The road was a four lane residential road and I was alone on the road, and alone in the car.

As the deer approached, I realized it was huge. Quickly, I was counting the points....two, four, six, maybe more? Ok, that would mean it was at least a 12 point buck.

He was soft brown and moved with a royal dignity. His Beauty and soulfulness was breathtaking. His size showed his power. The hill, the road, and the sky he claimed as his own. He walked deliberately up to the side of the road.

I was stopped and frozen looking at him. As he stood on the road side, we locked eyes. His deep dark beautiful eyes. All knowing, all understanding. Once again in my life, time was standing still.

As I sat there I wondered how did you get here? Why are you here? Why are you looking at me? I felt like I was in the presents of something bigger than we humans.

As he started into the street and was passing my car, he stopped for a split second and I swear when he stopped he looked at me an did a quick nod of his head, and then moved across the street, up into the snow, and up the hill to safety.

I was overcome with that thing, that happens to me where I feel God is communicating to me,
"It's Ok, everything is going to be alright" I felt that the spirit of God has been gently moving me along in life.

That in his word
Psalm 150:6

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord....

That majestic spiritual animal was a gift and a message to not just me but something I wanted to share with you. "It's Ok, everything is going to be alright," that God is with us even on days when we decide to run in other directions, like I did today.

So today I have encountered the love and glory of GOD that our Father has so graciously placed within the spirit of his animal kingdom and myself.

Once again out of the despair I am filled with hope that everything is "OK." That we are following a plan made just for us.

Thank you for your friendship, for remembering my father today. For being part of my cyber world.


PS....To the dear hunters...ya , I know !!
