Cooper Harris…

Funeral service for Cooper Harris at the University Church of Christ on Saturday, June 28, 2014, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Cooper Harris, 22 months old, died in Georgia on June 18 after he was left in his fathers’ SUV for seven hours.

I could not let this pass without making a statement in regards to the irresponsibility of this individual. I have no problem in saying that this person should be charged with the death of this child.

The only time I leave my dog in the car is when I get out to get gas, if I have to go away from the vehicle, I leave him in the safety of his home. I raised my children with their safety in mind. I lived in an era where seatbelts were not in the design of new cars. When they first were offered one had to purchase them as an option, which I did!

I lost a daughter when she became an adult from a stroke…life is precious, I mourn for the family of this child. Alabama is my home state and leaving a child in the car for seven hour is outrageous. I pray that his ignorance will be forgiven but not forgotten.

Reflections of Poetry now in paperback…

New release at

Reflections of Poetry

Reflections of Poetry is now available in both Kindle and paperback. The paperback version has a new cover but the content has not changed. Over the past months “Followers” have inquired into my having a paperback version as they did not have a Kindle. So, here it is, the size and cover makes it a wonderful “coffee table” item. Again thank you for your past, present and future support. All of the Kindle eBooks are in the process of converting to paperback.
