I met with my attorney this week and she is preparing to send the packet to the State Dept. requesting a Presumption of Death.I have mixed feeling about this. I feel like I am failing Ron in some way by doing this. I know he would want me take steps to secure my future, but I still feel guilty and sad. Ron's birthday is next week on June 8th. This will be the 3rd birthday passed without Ron.While I don't think I will ever have closure regarding Ron's dissapearance, maybe this will help me to move forward and not feel so much in a state of limbo. When this first happened 2 years ago, I was told it was a rare, it is anything but. Just read about the people that have gone missing in the past 2 years. Why won't our government help us?

Cindy - Let's talk about this. We need to get your senators into the game on this ... I've been putting together the pieces of a national campaign, and Texas is going to be an essential part of it. Who is telling you the Mexican PRG report is a "required document" for the decision about a finding? That's B.S. -- would that there was such an explicit "requirement" in the regulatory language. It's a hunk of Swiss cheese that can be read just about any way one cares to. 


Have you been in touch with Tiffany Hartley at all? I think the two of you should talk, for moral and practical support.


Let me know when is a good time for you to talk?

Thank you Renee...You and John's family are in mine as well.

I am so sorry... it's bad enough to have him missing.... but then to have the cavalier attitude that so many of us are now getting is just unbearable.... I don't know what it is going to take to change it either.... We are coming up on six months without John, birthdays and Christmas and soon Mother's day.... I can't imagine two years of what you have been going through... you are in our prayers.....

I am in a pile of red tape per my attorney. The Mexican PGR has not released a copy of their investigation to me despite numerous requests. I can't submit my request for a presumption of death to the State Dept. with out it, since that is one of the required documents. I have been totally forgotten. I only get a response from the USConsulate, or Congressmen or Senators when I contact them. My attorney does not even contact me anymore. 2 years out,Ron is just another statistic

Cindy, I forget - did you ever manage to connect with the state insurance commissioner? Another avenue might be -- does your local TV station have a consumer advocate? We have a lot of them here, Help Me Harry and Shame on You...reporters who go after companies that screw the little guy.

I feel like I a trying to run knee deep in mud. I can't get a response from anyone anymore...except NO from Allstate Life Insurance. More and more people are being murdered and going missing in Mexico and I feel like I am screaming to deaf ears....

Though I never met Ron, I feel a particular bond. Maybe it's the fishing connection... We won't stop looking for answers, Cindy.
