Life's little surprises...........

Well it's confirmed - John's remains will never be found; the DOC is not taking responsibility, haven't even received a formal, not to mention sincere, apology, if you can believe it. Next step: get our story out there.  I've said it before and I will say it again - something good will come of this and I will do what I can to bring attention to the Island and how it's operated.  Families have the right, as do friends and the public, in general, to visit the Island without having to go through an FBI security check (might as well be).  The Island is history and history must be preserved. Not to mention the all important reason that there are flying souls on that Island who need and want to come in for a landing and stay a while.  They need their rest.

  1. Dear Julie,I am a kindred spirit,I have a sister buried on Hart Island and was there recently.It is a peaceful forest facing a beautiful shoreline in Long Island. It is not a traditonal cemetery but it is no less comforting.The Lord is there with John and his spirit will help you find him..Do not give up as there are success stories.I would love to speak with you and tell you about all the people here in New York that feel your pain and feel the way you do and are trying to find a solution for the Island. May the Lord Bless and keep you always. Bellmore NY
