In Honor of Leila

I haven't posted a photo of my granddaughter Leila until now-- something I've wanted to do for all who had expressed kind thoughts upon her passing. It's a shame at the time, some were wrapped up in trying to destroy the reputation of Gordon Baker and also in taking callous shots at me at a most inopportune moment-- while my family was in the midst of heartbreak.

I've now had the chance to read through the B&C History Discussion forum, which I imagine some might prefer I wouldn't have found. My advantage in having seen this now, is to better understand who among the self proclaimed Bonnie & Clyde "Community" are sincerely passionate about their cause (as
there are some good folks there)-- vs those who just seem to be insurmountably vulgar individuals. I have noted those who went out of their way to make cruel remarks, while at the same time appearing concerned about my family and myself during a period of immense personal tragedy. Although I didn't know it then, a number of what appeared to be sincere condolences re: my granddaughter's passing-- obviously were backed by less than true feelings.

So for those who are interested, and in her honor-- this was Leila. And to those who were nice enough to exercise restraint and decorum within that forum of grand disrespect-- my sincere "thanks" and appreciation. Also to those loyal to The B&CHB, whom I know expressed genuine and heartfelt concern for my daughter, my family and myself-- I again offer my most grateful thanks. I'll always remember your wonderful kindness. However for those whose false words and actions deserve no accolades-- please note my feeling that this wonderful little girl-- was a far better person in just one year of life, than you'll likely be in all your days. To treat people as you do just because you feel like it, I'm sure is not what you would want others to do unto you.

Maybe we're a little more even now. Oh and for those who've expressed "glee"-- in thinking you've made a difference in having brought down Gordon Baker and his book, I don't see it that way. Those who cast stones, but yet have or support what many might consider marginal theories-- and without evidence to back their cause-- really should think twice before criticizing others. Fools and their followers it seems, serve little purpose-- except to entertain their own twisted sense of hatred. I can think of fewer things more useless.

It's interesting how some people's hidden truths are exposed when the chips are down, while others remain true to the self always seen. Hey-- What goes around, comes around. And as a friend of mine recently posted-- "Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead".

Oh, What a gorgeous baby.

Our Faith is: We shall be with our loved ones again. Yet grief is such bittersweet sorrow. “Mourn with those who mourn” (Romans 12:15). And I do and pray for you.
