I have not turned my back on you
So there's no need to cry
I'm watching you from heaven
Just beyond the morning sky
I've seen you almost fall apart
When you could barely stand
I asked the Lord to comfort you
And watched him take your hand
He told me you are in more pain
Than I could ever be
He wiped his eyes and swallowed hard
Then gave your hand to me
Although you may not feel my touch
Or see me by your side
I've whispered that I love you
While I wiped each tear you cried
So please try not to ache for me
We'll meet again one day
Beyond the dark and stormy clouds
A rainbow lights the way
I don't think I've ever read anything more beautiful than this Zazz. God Bless you, and keep you forever in his care. xx00xx

This touched me so. All I could do was cry with longing. It takes me back to the time when I was a young girl and was baptized in the gravel pit on a Sunday afternoon. It was so real, and is; an experience I could never forget. Oh yes, we prayed in what we thought was the river.

I will play it again and again. There's more videos on this tape, saved under my favs. Thank you Zazz. I knew I could count on you.

Where are you Vic?

I thought of you Monday Morning and Tuesday Morning and this morning... wondering if you've been able to make it to help the boys get off to school.... wondering if you're holding up through these dark days? We're all thinking of you Vic, with love...

Did you know...

... that today is Red Buttons Day? In 1919, American comedian, actor and songwriter Red Buttons was born Aaron Chwatt in New York City. At the age of 16, he got a job working as a bellhop and a singer at a bar on City Island in New York State. His uniform and his flame-colored hair served as inspiration for his stage name "Red Buttons" -- a name he would use for his entire career.

That's interesting Zazz. I did not realize we had a 'Red Buttons Day'. He was one of my favorite comedians in years gone by. I loved him as Clint Kaddlehopper (sp?). Remember when he played as Clint? Funny stuff. Do you know, are there any tributes being paid to him today in his honor?

A beautiful but tragic soul. The world lost a great young lady when she was lost, especially in such a horrific way, along with her entire family and millions more. It was amazing that her writings were found intact. I've always wanted to read her diaries, but never had the opportunity. Have you? I understand she touched on nearly every subject imaginable that was appropriate to her day and times, and many far advanced than her tender years..

King George, your post re the possible connection between Casey Parsons and Carole Bryan being Irene Goodman is very interesting! I can definitely see where you get the idea that Carole and Irene might be one and the same person.

It makes perfect sense that identify thieves and child slavery porn/pedophiles would set themselves up on the genealogy forums. What I don't understand is how they could offer to do these searches for free. It seems to me that any dummy would be able to realize that these genealogy search sites are not free. I looked into doing a genealogy search once and found it to be rather expensive; at least I thought it was at the time. Anyway, I decided that it wasn't worth it to me so I didn't bother with it.

Do you think Erikas' bio-mom Carolyn or someone else in her family had anything to do with Erikas' disappearance in cahoots with Casey? Also, what part of Casey Parsons' story do you believe? I realize we don't have anything to go on so far, but I've always believed that James'(the oldest son) story had some element of truth to it, where he said Erika is dead, killed by his parents. Do you feel that maybe this isn't true but that something else sinister and evil happened that Casey (& Sandy) was involved in with her disappearance?

I am starting to wonder if LE is going to take any action against any of the Parsons in this childs' disappearance even though Casey clearly defrauded the Govm't for two years while continuing to claim and cash her checks while little Erika was missing the whole time but with no accountability made by the Parsons. This is just NOT right.

There was more to this, Anne. I posted a second post that was deleted. Imagine that!!
The deleted post pertained to Carolyn's "bio family". Casey and Sandy's atty says that these are the people who took Erica.
The part of Casey's story that I believe is that she let someone else have Erica.
LE and the media keep saying there is no woman called Nan. They have never said that Erica wasn't sold, or given to another person. IMO, she was handed over to someone whose name is not Irene Goodman, or Nan.
I do believe that someone else had a HUGE hand in this scheme. I think that Sandy's father, William played a part in this. I found something that might quite possibly be a connection between Carole and him.

G'morning KG.. Okay, possible, but what do you think of James'es claim that Casey & Sandy killed Erika? You know,(IMO) the whole family is dippy to one extent or another, with daddy Prsons' likely being the worst of the lot. But what about son James'es story that he reported to LE?

THIS, you've got to read! I just read an article on todays NBC News titled:'Adopted girl: "My parents didn't want me. I didn't want to live." KG, this will knock your sox off. This article goes into great depth about the many many MANY internet sites there are that advertise to take and place unwanted children. There is no LE, CPS, or other agency investigating these sites and no follow up. These children are sent off to live, or sold,(or God knows what) to different states and homes, many never to be heard of again.

When one doesn't work out they advertise to send the child somewhere else and again the child is traded off to another stranger. Most of these parents getting rid of these children never question where or to whom they are going. The child in the article is from Russia but not all of these children are foreign. There is no accounting for any of these children; hundreds, thousands. It is very common. Carole Bryan, Nan, Irene Goodman, Casey Parsons; isn't even the tip of the iceberg. OMG, this is HORRIBLE!

What do you think of Dylan Farrows' claim that Woody Allen abused her at seven years old? Personally, I believe her. Maybe I don't know all of the facts that transpired at the time, but I do think there would have been enough evidence to prosecute Allen at the time had LE cooperated with Mia and Dylan when they first reported the alleged abuse, which they did NOT do. I feel sorry for her, now 28 years old?

Therapists/counselors with their working with the girl and willingness to testify could have helped prosecute the b'stard, which also might have prevented his abuse of the adopted daughter (Son Yi?) that he took lewd photos of as a pre and young teen and later married. They have two adopted girls now who could probably do a lot of talking themselves and might after the b'stard bites the dust.

Mia Farrow is herself a strange bird and not quite right in the head IMO. She has 14 children all total, 3 bio and 11 adopted. That's as stupid as octomom except that Mia had money. Mia, who was once married to Frank Sanatra always looked like his bio-daughter and wouldn't surprise me one bit if she was. He WAS after all, once sexually involved with Mias' mother. NOW she says her son Ronan (sp?) could be Franks' son. And damned if he doesn't look just like Frank Sanatra! Same eyes and all. Total incestuous family.

Anne, I'll start with this. Someone is not allowing me to post links, so, if you do a google search for A Candy Rose, you'll find the info that she has collected concerning Erica. Most of the pics of Erica show a cute little girl. Look at pic # 8. That one shows Erica a little older. You can see that she is painfully thin, and it looks as if she has no teeth. At the age she appears to be in that pic, she's too old to be waiting for her permanent teeth to come in. She would have lost her baby teeth, years before that. Could the teeth taken from the shed be her permanent teeth?

LOL! I agree!

It's difficult to know whose "side" to be on concerning these celebrities, IMO. Most of them are nuts or nearly nuts, narcissistic, and completely into themselves as well as drugs. I agree, Mia Farrow is a flake, albeit probably has a high I.Q. I also think that the son she had while living with Woody, whom he thought was his son, definitely is the son of Frank Sinatra. The photos of him show he is a good physical/facial combination of both Frank and Mia. The joke is on Woody! HA!

As far as Woody Allen is concerned, he is a freak and an immoral person. Yes, I believe the allegations against him. Talented? Sure. But that doesn't automatically mean that he isn't a child abuser. His actions speaks louder than his words, and we all know his past history. And one stupid woman came on CNN a few days ago in his favor. She said that when he was in his 40's and she was 17, they dated. Huh? Why? Oh, he taught her a lot about life, she said. I'll bet THAT"S the truth! She has an "ax to grind" - and so does Barbara Walters, to defend him. I never cared much for her anyway, and she has just slipped down even further in my book. How does SHE know? Was she there? LOL!

KG, I did pull up several of those sites under A Candy Rose Erica Parsons. OH YEAH, in quite a few of her photos it could be said that she is missing teeth; and yes, too old to be waiting for her permanent teeth to come in. There is one half-smile photo where she is showing a couple of teeth on one side but no more teeth. Even her lip is higher on that one side where those two teeth are exposed. Why would only two teeth show and no more if she had any more?

Pathetically, in all but a couple of her photos it appears she is ashamed and is trying to keep her mouth closed and not show that she doesn't have any teeth. But those where her mouth is entirely closed the structure of her lower face and jaw bone line appears that she is 'gumming it', which is what some elderly people do who have no teeth, particularly no lower teeth and sometimes no upper teeth either. It's called,'gumming it.' Toothless gums pressed up under toothless gums or a few other straggly teeth where some are missing, which appears they are missing some jawbone because they are.

The structure of the lower jaw bone of toothless people always appears to be too shallow when they are missing teeth, like Ericas' does. It is the roots of the teeth that fill out the jawbone, both lower and upper, and she is missing this filled in jawbone because she is missing the roots of her teeth, both upper and lower! Those probably WERE her teeth found in that shed! WTH did LE do with them??

I read some of the timeline postings too. I have to say at this point, I don't believe a word Casey Parsons says, or Sandy. I believe they both abused Erica. I believe that if Casey handed that child over to someone else with no phone # or future contact info, she didn't want to know who she handed her off too, or care. I believe she cut a deal with this anon person for HER to keep the checks. Also, that anyone who will bear a surrogate baby for money and try to sell that baby for a higher price will do anything for money, even kill. I believe in Carolyns' honesty ahead of Caseys.

Ponderings, Barbara Wah Wah should have quit and retired before she gave this last interview concerning pedophile Woody Allen. She is a fool not to consider the (very likely) possibility that he DID molest that child, and I believe over a period of time and not just once; and not the only one he molested either. Now, I no longer want to ever hear Babs Wah Wah open her mouth again. I already thought she wasn't all she cracked herself up to be after she gave that indepth interview about the married man she had a years-long affair with and was boasting about it? So what's to be proud of, s'rewing with a married black dude for YEARS, then naming names? I decided then she was a low-life skank and a fool, now I'm damned sure she is, incapable of caring about sexual immorality or who else gets hurt.

Ha! Go take a look at a younger Mia Farrows' photos against a younger Frank Sinatras' photos an tell me she doesn't look like his own daughter! She sure as hell DOES!!!! I've always thought her to be his daughter and still do. Go back and read up on the timeline when Frankie boy was sexually involved with Mias' OWN mother and tell me the dates of Mias' birth don't line up with when he was s'rewing with Mias' MOTHER. IFF you can; but I don't think you can. he he... Makes one wonder why Mias' mother didn't try to stop Mia from sexing with Sinatra, KNOWING he could be her bio-father?

I think the whole clan uv 'em ought to be having DNA tests!! Mia even said she never stopped 'diddling' with Frank even after she divorced him. Now she admits this son could belong to Sinatra. Well YEAH! MAN of man, does he EVER look like Frankie, like ole blue eyes opened his mouth and spit him out! Maybe he ought to be suing Nancy, Tina and their step-mama for some of his rightful inheritance. I would! PLUS sue Woody for 'something'.

The joke sure as hell IS on Woody. That son of Mias' most assuredly IS the son of Frank Sinatra, and IMO opinion is doubly related to himself! His father AND his grandfather! Incest all the way honey!!!

FBI on Parsons case: Nan does not exist

by TONY BURBECK / NBC Charlotte
Posted on January 30, 2014 at 9:32 AM
Updated Friday, Jan 31 at 5:37 AM

SALISBURY, N.C.-- Investigators working the ongoing Erica Parsons missing person case offered strong accusations and a lot of reward money Thursday hoping it will provide new clues that lead to the Rowan County teen.

The FBI announced it is offering up to a $25,000 reward for information leading to the location or return of Erica. The Rowan County Sheriff's Office previously announced a $10,000 dollar reward, which now brings the total to $35,000.

"It is clear Casey and Sandy Parsons have not been truthful with the information that would lead us to the whereabouts to find Erica. We know there is someone out there who can help us though. Now is the time to come forward," Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten said during an afternoon news conference. Investigators did not answer questions from reporters.

The nearly two-year time gap from when Erica was last seen at home until she was reported missing poses several road blocks that have been hard to overcome, investigators said.

Hundreds of tips, multiple interviews, property searches and evidence seizures have not produced Erica, who is considered a missing person.

Investigators are upping the reward money hope cash equals tips.

Erica's adoptive parents Casey and Sandy Parsons say in late 2011, Erica went to live with a woman named "Nan," who they thought was Erica's biological grandmother, and someone they met in person a couple of times.

"We know Erica did not go to live with Irene Goodman, which has previously been reported. I can tell you Nan just doesn't exist," said FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Deron Roberts.

The Parsons say they're not lying. Instead, they are telling investigators what "Nan" told them - and if anyone is lying it's her.

Investigators hope anyone who came in contact with the Parsons around that timeframe could be they key to solving Erica's disappearance.

"It could be family. It could be medical providers, local store employees. Any sighting of Erica or any action with the Parsons family in November, 2011 could provide the clues we need to locate her," Auten said.

This is Casey Parsons' response to the FBI announcing an increase in the reward money:

"I think this is excellent. I am very excited to hear this. You have made my day with this announcement, thanks."
