CHECK OUT EDDIE'S PICTURES ON MY GALLERY

It's been one year today Sept. 28th, 2012
At 4:22 p.m. you left us on the Earth to join my other doggies and kitty cat at the Rainbow Bridge.
You left your companion, Lexie; your Daddy and Mommy. We still miss you everyday! Your bed and favorite toy; Mr. Mallard Duck; your collar and a shirt are in the same place as when you last used them! I've left them there for Lexie!

You left this world after kissing me good-bye, cradled in my arms, resting in my lap.

Rest in Peace; EDWARD the GREAT 11 1

    OH, I know how it feels to lose a loved fur baby to the rainbow bridge. it has happened too many many times to me. It just happened to my oldest daughter this past week. She had to put her family dog of 13 years to sleep. Her family has been heartbroken. If only they could have longer life spans.

they really become like our children. RIP Eddie.

Hugs

GOD REST HIS SOUL!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

This past Tuesday early morning, one of our town
s finest young men was killed in Kabul, Afghanstein. He was a defense contractor with the A.F..

He was in his mid-forties. In the early 80's; he, DD2 and I worked together at the grocery. He left there and went to work at the factore, hubby worked at. Hubby was his boss. They also ran on the EMS squad together where he was a captain for hubby.

After that, he was dispatcher for the local police dept., later becoming a patrolman. Then, he went to the County Sheriff's Dept. as a dispatcher; later becoming a road deputy. Five years ago, he became a Defense Contractor. He loved his work training Afghan.s to become police officers. He was doing what he loved when he gave his life.

Being on our Church's Prayer Chain I got the call to pass on! I was writing all the info. down to pass on. When the Emmintis Pastors wife said the name as I was prepared to write it down; I felt a sinking sick feeling at the pit of my stomach! I heard the name, and, yet I didn't hear the name! I asked for the name again. When she repeated the name 'Kurt Muncy'; I replied 'Oh, no, Rose'. She asked if I knew him! Everyone in my family does! He felt like a son to me. He was home just two weeks ago, to help celebrate his parents 50th Wedding Anniversary! His body will arrive back in town between 8-9 p.m. tomorrow evening!

God Rest His Soul!

  My heart goes out. HUGS and prayers.

My own son, currently stationed in the Army in Alaska, was in Afghanistan only 3 days when 3 of his mates died from an IED. 6 days into the deployment he himself was badly wounded, but is recovering (that happened last August). Nothing can prepare you for such a horrid event but I wish peace for that young man's family. You never get over it, but hopefully the good memories will be more frequent than the sadness.

So sorry.

URGENT MESSAGE

Monday, June 24, 2013



TO ALL SPARKIES!!!

I wanted to pass this along to you all!

Have you gotten an response to anything that just didn't seem right???

Today I got a response to a pic. on my Spark Page that got me to wondering.

It was a response giving me their e-mail address to write if I wanted their friendship.

If any of you have, let me know so we can see if it is the same message and intent.

It may be intirely innocent, but, let's see for ourselves.

COME ON, LET"S FIND OUT!

Blessings,
Janet

    Janet, There's a new member with the username Gordon-Powers who is looking for friends and asking them to contact him thru a personal email address. He friended me a few days ago after I'd welcomed him to SP when he posted to the new member board. He also posted on my page with a request for friendship. He says he is mildly to moderately disabled. He has info about himself on his page. Is this the same one you heard from? Obviously, giving out your private email address or any other personal info on here is not a smart thing to do with a stranger, but I think this guy probably is simply lonely and looking for friends. I told him I don't share personal info but that I'd be happy to be friends here on SP. I haven't heard back from him yet. This isn't the place for him to be looking for email pals, but I don't see him as a danger or any reason at all to panic as long as people use a little common sense. emoticon

    right, if you want their friendship, just befriend them.

and I go with lalatidah on this, keep spark within spark and keep private (personal) stuff separate. you never know, and you don't need to learn the hard way. on the other hand, you're not losing anything by not connecting.
