'Anybody's kid': Mourners remember Fort Worth brothers who were electrocuted - Fort Worth Star Telegram

Monday, April 03, 2017

Friday, but many who attended the memorial stepped through the barrier to pay their respects.They set up a small wooden cross and tied to it a bundle of shiny balloons. They scattered rose petals and prayed and cried.One little girl, Abby, left a hand-written note, complete with crosses drawn in crayon.“I hope you guys are in heaven now!” her note said. “I will see you guys later up there. Just be waiting for me don’t go anywhere. Go find my dog Lulu. Make her happy too.”The Lopez brothers lived near the park with their grandmother, their family said, and they attended an International Leadership of Texas charter school in North Richlands Hills.Parents at the school on Friday organized a GoFundMe page for the boys’ funeral expenses. By Friday night, the page had raised more than $14,000.“Alex (Jose) and Isaiah were bright lights,” the page said. Donations for expenses can also be made directly to Greenwood funeral home, Jenkins said. The family’s account there is No. 251806. A public viewing at the funeral home is scheduled for noon-5 p.m. Sunday, and a graveside service is scheduled for 3 p.m. Monday.

Matilija poppy, queen of California flowers - MyAJC

Monday, September 19, 2016

They push up vigorous, upright stems lined with blue gray leaves and eventually topped with flower buds. Then the magic begins as huge crepey white petals unfurl to surround a golden ball of stamens that resemble a fried egg.As blooming ends, the plants gradually decline with summer drought, demanding no additional water until the rainy season returns. The declining stems can be cut to the ground so ornamental grasses take over in its stead for the late summer and fall.All this tells us Matilija is best planted in the fall, especially if dormant. Like all poppies, it’s highly sensitive to root disturbance, so handle them with great care during transplantation. The renowned difficulty in getting them established may be due to root trauma when transplanted. Like similarly sensitive bougainvillea, a shattered root ball is sure death.It’s best to start plants from one gallon containers because the root ball is small and manageable. That makes it easy to plant without root disturbance for a much better chance of success.To help you get your poppy planted properly this fall, follow these steps:1. Dig your hole and fill it with water to fully saturate the dry autumn soil.2. Once drained and moist, place the nursery container in the hole.3. Use a sharp tool to cut away the nursery pot in pieces.4. Gently slide the round bottom out from beneath the root ball.5. Backfill your hole gently then settle soil by watering in.Not all plant sellers carry it because it’s dormant in the fall and not that great-looking on sale. They don’t usually keep it in stock because moisture management during late summer dormancy is challenging in a nursery environment. Visit your local independent garden center, where they can special order this plant for you from local native plant growers. When it comes in, pick it up immediately because it will be in perfect condition compared to those that may languish in the retail setting where all plants are watered equally.The first winter, provide some supplemental water if there is no rain or very little. This aids roots moving into new und...

Actress and Trans Activist Alexis Arquette Dies at 47 - Slate Magazine (blog)

Monday, September 19, 2016

She passed away surrounded by love. We held her and sang her David Bowie’s “Starman” as she punched through the veil to the other side. We washed her body in rose petals and surrounded her with flowers.Alexis always had to do everything first. She left before we were ready to let her go. We are all heartbroken that she is no longer with us, but we are grateful for the grace and kindness we were all shown during this difficult time. We are comforted by the fact that Alexis came into our family and was our brother and then our sister, and that she gave us so much love. We will love you always, Alexis. We know we were the lucky ones.The family asks that in lieu of flowers or gifts, donations please be sent to organizations that support the LGBTQ community in honor of Alexis Arquette.Please respect our privacy during this time of grieving.
