Personal Description:


I miss my mother, who died June 28, 2007, every day, but especially on special occasions, like today. Today would have been my parents 42nd wedding anniversary. It’s still difficult to comprehend that our beautiful mother is gone from us, even though it has been almost a year. We MUST help find a cure for this horrible disease which kills so many of our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, friends.

Personal Description:

Mom was beautiful. Kind. Loving. Generous. Words will always fall short, and I can’t write any more because my tears are blinding me…

I can honestly say I feel your pain. My mother passed August 11, 2007 from Stage III Fallopian Tube Cancer, which is treated like Ovarian Cancer. Within 5 months of the diagnosis, she left. This is an indescribable feeling. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone. I lost my best friend. Just knowing that she watches over me is a comfort in itself. Keeping you in my prayers.

What’s wrong with you, Barry? He exemplifies what used to be the cmomon type ” American man!” Unburdened to society! Handling his life on his own two feet! Providing for his family, taking responsibility to all! Of course the wife helps out and as an employee who lost her job, would receive unemployment unless they choose not to! Ford exemplifies what used to be the cmomon type of honest business taking accounts of all responsibilities on their own without putting infringement on the tax payers, using intelligence and skills of those in their earned positions in providing jobs for the economy and the economy with a solid, trustworthy product at the choice of the consumer. Who also continues to show what used to be cmomon, the customer being number one, not government!! Who has the decency in doing business between the customer and the business without the third party of government expense and interference! Thank you Ford! For standing Ford tough!!Excellent commercial to bring back “The American way!!!” Threatening to a wrongful government of another way!
