    Auntie,

    I will always remember the times we had together. Talking, laughing, seeking out of the house at night, late night talks, etc. Most of all, having two moms to take care of. Double trouble & I am so glad to have had the memories.

    Mom, I miss you. You will forever be in my heart & will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.

    Love,

    Denise Robinson (Denny)

    Mom Bee,

    You were a very special Queen Bee. God designed you perfectly the way you were. Your kindness and generosity was a blessing to all. We needed you here, but God needed you more. Our Lord and Savior said well done my good and faithful servant. Your light will continue to shine in Heaven as it did on earth. We will meet again, so rest in peace.

    With all our love,

    Barb, Barry and Sherita Ferrell

    To: Torray,Terry & (family),

    A MESSAGE OF SYMPATHY:

    Some people make a difference just by being who they are. Their inner light shines bright and touches lives both near and far, and even when they’re gone, they still forever play a part in the smiles. The priceless moments that are treasured in the heart. In memory…and in celebration…of your “MOM” who made a brighter and better place, whom we have enjoyed being with her. With Warmest Thoughts and Deepest Sympathy. Gwen and Family, (Harris & Foote)

    To:
    Torray, Terry & Family,

    It’s hard to convey how you’re feeling, after the passing of your loving Mother (Bea). We’re speechless. This loss is beyond words. She will be truly missed. Our prayer is that the Lord will shower each one of you with His comfort and love. And when you have no answers to all the questions ‘why’, know that God is in control and by your side. He understands the way you feel and knows the loss you face, so rest in His eternal love. May God be with you and may His perfect peace comfort you.

    Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

    Mrs. Lee, the passing of a loved one leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. I will be forever blessed that God allowed me to have met you and enjoy your precious spirit. You will be missed but forever remembered.

    When I was growing up I often heard that the chmeicals of which we are made are worth about 98 cents. Also I recall hearing that the total molecules of our body are replaced relatively quickly. So I really do not have any objection to environmentally friendly methods that return the dust of which I will be composed at the hour of my death to the common dust of earth as quickly as possible.The most important part of our physical reality appears to be our DNA sequence. There seems to me to be important medical, psychological and social reasons, perhaps some of which we will not discover for many years, perhaps centuries, for preserving family DNA. Perhaps there are also important theological reasons for preserving it. Isn’t it a kind of logos, the organizing principle of our physical existence, and uniqueness, and therefore in some way the physical expression of God’s imprint upon matter forming us?Beyond our DNA, it seems that our words, deeds, and social relationships are more a part of our embodied identity than the physical dust of the earth (even if it was born in the stars as Sagan used to like to remind us). We now have many ways to preserve electronically (forever? to be retrieved by a computer on some future Starship Enterprise?) substantial samples of our existence for future generations. In fact a great deal of that is already being collected in various and sundry ways. So do we really want future generations to reconstruct us in terms of our PrayTell comments?For my father’s funeral, I assembled family photos as icons for the prayer book of his vigil service. The family really enjoyed sharing and discussing them. I have noticed since then more funeral homes are providing services like this for people. So maybe the future of the funeral industry will lie in creating and maintaining family memorials, e.g. DNA, and various sorts of electronic and physical records long before and after the funeral service .

    Hello, I am a resident of Monte Rio. We are a small, low inmcoe community, with many disable people. The redwood forest, is full of baby animals, especially at this time of year. When so many people come to our little community, it can be very disruptive to the wildlife, dogs, cats and pets, as well as to the people who live here. I live on Bohemian Ave, and my 92 yr old mom lives with me. Please be respectful of our little community when you are here. Tread lightly on things while you are here, and realize that when you raise your voices in the woods, or trample on things, you may be scaring animals out of the woods, and preventing elderly or disabled people from resting. Really, we are asking that when you are here, you behave as well as you would behave when you are in your own communities. And, if you see people disrespecting things or people in this community, please, speak out. Thank you for listening! Louise

    It’s great to read something that’s both enjoyable and provides prmgaatisdc solutions.

    I was just wondering how inetetsred WXOU is with helping the community. My wife and I have started a non-profit organization called If It Was Only Fair, and we are working on fighting bullying in schools. What we do is raise money through events and we want to use those funds to help schools that have anti-bullying groups in place, or want to start them. We also will work with these groups and facilitate the groups in a way that these groups may become a success. What I am doing is gauging interest in many media outlets, and since I am on campus today, I figured I would start with WXOU and see if they would be willing to help plug the organization. If you could send me to the person or persons that would be able to give me more information on how we could make this work, I’d be forever grateful! Thanks in advance for your time, keep up the good work!Andrew Martin
