We spent New Years in Times Square. Enjoyed celebrating this in honor of Ronald and his love for fireworks and celebration!

It is official, The US State Dept denied my request for a Presumption Of Death on Ronald. In the state of Texas, I have to wait the full 7 years. After that, I am not sure what will happen. They actually recommended I go through the Mexican legal system. Mind you, Mexico won't even release a copy of their "Investigation" to me or to the US Consulate despite numerous official requests. I have no money to pay a Mexican attorney....who would just probably just take the money and run...I am beyond frustrated and disgusted.....and sad.

What a lovely time to visit Europe and The Netherlands... I'm glad you can be there for the celebration.. it should bring comfort to you all... *hugs*

I am currently in The Netherlands, visiting Ron's family. We don't get to see each other very often, and I am so glad I could be here for my sister in law's 50th birthday celebration. It is bittersweet of course, since Ron is not here.

You're not alone, Cindy. We're all in your corner.

I understand what you are going through, that gut-wrenching feeling of not-knowing, and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.... we all feel your pain... I wish I could do something to help ease it... for now, I will just send my love and support!!

I am with Jeff. You and Ronald both made arrangements in case one of you were not there. This is what couples do. Love you and thinking about you and Ronald everyday.

Cindy: You are absolutely NOT failing Ron. Ron made arrangements like life insurance to protect you in case he couldn't be there. He never considered this particular circumstance or he would have prepared for it. Wherever he is, he wants you to be provided for. Please document the presumption of death process so we can help others learn from our experiences. And it might help if we could get you on TV to talk about your struggles and the underlying issues. People need to know about this and get angry or our government will never do anything to change the way these cases are (not) handled. I'll say a special prayer for you and Ron on the 8th. Stay strong.

Oh, Cindy... I am so sorry, and I will keep you and your family in my prayers... it's so sad that the government we support cannot support us in our need..... Until some celebrity or some senator's spouse or child goes missing, our missing loved ones will be unknown and unacknowledged by the Powers That Be.
