I was hoping to post
cheerful memories of these children that anyone wanted to
share. But due to the lack of response I have decided to
explain why I am so opposed to Murder Stories or what some
call "Angel Stories".
Oppose Murder Stories (or so-called Angel Stories)
believe no child's memory shall be overcast by the scrutiny
and means in which they died. The manner in which family and
friends have enjoyed the presence of a child shall not be
challenged by popularity. In some cases the publicity in
which a child was murdered has given the killer and other
murderers the strength and enthusiasm to murder again.
I, for one, don't believe in taking the risk that even one
child is murdered because of this. I also believe that
these stories should be only for the parents to tell if they
choose to do so. As a visitor wrote in my Guestbook. "Thank
you for taking a stand against death stories. These people
don't know the hurt that a parent has when a complete stranger
describes your child's murder scene but don't have enough
feeling for the victim to attend the child's funeral." You
might want to think first before you adopt an Angel.

Matthew Horne, who had significant hearing loss, loved to
read, played chess and was brilliant at math. Both children
were in programs for the gifted.
