« on: May 13, 2015, 02:19:28 PM »
it's hard to believe CANDI'S  been gone 10 yrs. today.  there's not a day that goes by that I don't miss her... she would be 33 yrs. old now..
 but she was killed when she was 23 yrs. old..  i'd LOVE  to see,hug,talk to her & tell her " AUNT MARTHA LOVE'S YOU WITH ALL MY HEART."
her son JOSH was 7 when she was killed . now he's 17.... he's a wonderful young man. they've both missed out on each other's live's..

Child Loss / PICTURE'S OF CANDI'S NIECE(ZOIE CANDICE)8/26/13
« on: August 27, 2013, 03:51:40 PM »
as many of you know CANDI was 23 when she was killed in MAY 2005.. her son JOSH was 7 1/2..
 CANDI had one brother(BRIAN) who was 20 when she was killed.... so she was never an AUNT...

 BRIAN IS   " 28yrs. old" now... HIS fiance "AMBER" gave birth to their 1st child yesterday(8/26/13)... a little girl they named " ZOIE CANDICE SHORT ".   after her AUNT CANDICE SHORT ROSS...

I haven't posted anything about her pregnancy because she has a lot of female problems & i tried not to get my hopes up until the last few mo... they had to do a c-section but both AMBER & ZOIE are healthy & happy.... our families are sooooo happy & thankful that GOD  has given us this precious little girl... she weighed 6 lb. & 10 oz. & was 19 in. long...

i loved on ZOIE & gave her kisses from her "AUNT CANDI"...
 i wish CANDI was here to see ZOIE for herself . i was afraid that when she was born i'd be sad because CANDI wasn't here but i didn't feel that way at all... not because i don't miss CANDI  but that "GOD" blessed us with this ANGEL... 
 BRIAN & AMBER are going to be such good parents... my sister(LISA)"CANDI & BRIAN'S MOM" is quitting her job at the bank she's worked at for 16 yrs. this FRIDAY  to stay at home & keep ZOIE while BRIAN & AMBER work...
 the bank even gave LISA  a surprise "NANNY BABY-SHOWER" last week .. it was fun.. LISA  got so much stuff for her house for ZOIE..  she already has everything she needs at her house that BRIAN & AMBER won't have to pack a diaper bag for her....
this SATURDAY is CANDI'S birthday... she would've been 32 yrs. old... i miss her soooooo much...
she's been gone 8yrs. & it still hurts so bad...

i wanted to share ZOIE with everyone....

« on: May 13, 2013, 06:22:02 PM »
 8 yrs. ago today CANDI-23 was taken from us by a 18 yr. old driver trying to scare his 2 friends to death. CANDI was minding her own business driving to meet her husband for a cook-out... when he hit her head-on killing her instantly..

he's been in prison some of this time but is out on parole now.. i don't wish anything bad on him anymore... but i don't want to see or talk to him...

AUNT MARTHA LOVE'S YOU CANDI.....

Child Loss / update on how my cousin(TARA-32) DIED.
« on: May 11, 2013, 02:35:51 PM »
 her mom & grandpa found her in her house on her bed . her mom thought she was asleep at first... but they said she had already turned colors.. thinking now she was probably dead for 2 days... the police came & there were 20 methadone pills missing from her prescription.
now it looks like she took her own life.. her son's are ages'  9 & 10 yrs. old...
this is hard to accept.. the boys were at their dad's house.. thank goodness...

she wanted her boy's back WEDNESDAY..  their dad wouldn't give them back until they went to court.. she's been know to do drug's & leave them alone... she didn't leave a note or anything so for now it's just devastating... my mom's BROTHER(BILLY WAYNE) & his wife raised TARA ... his wife passed away in 1996...
my GRANDMA-92 now.. helped clothe her & paid for the best of everything for TARA...
now grandma has outlive 2 great-grand-daughter's(CANDI & TARA..) THEY WERE THE 2 OLDEST ONE'S... 
i honestly don't think my grandma will live long now... TARA was her everything...
please keep praying..

« on: May 10, 2013, 06:29:01 PM »
as a lot of you know CANDI-23 will be gone 8 yrs. MONDAY- MAY 13TH...   it's been a hard week leading up to it...

my sis(LISA) called me about 6:00 p.m. & told me our mom had called her & said our cousin's daughter had been found dead. her name was(TARA-32) ..  she has two son's.... TARA was exactly 1yr. & a day older than CANDI...
so they grew up together...
i remember at CANDI'S family night TARA sitting behind where me,LISA & TODD were standing FOR  3 straight hours during family night & would go get us water or what ever it was we needed because we couldn't walk away because there were so many people there..over a 1,000 people came to pay there respects that night... 

please keep our family in your prayers... i'll keep you posted. thanks..

Child Loss / NEED PRAYERS FOR(CAMERON-7YRS. OLD)
« on: January 16, 2013, 09:45:32 AM »
PLEASE PRAYER FOR OUR FAMILY....
 my cousin's grandson(CAMERON-7) HAD BEEN COMPLAING FOR A WEEK OF A HEADACHE...  my cousin(TAMMY) his grandma noticed a big knot behind his ear... they took him to the hospital & did a catscan. at 1st they thought he'd cracked his skull... but they did surgery & put a tube in to drain it.. but he had to be careflighted to OK CITY, OKLAHOMA TO A HOSPITAL.
  the infection could go to his brain & kill him... they're doing surgery today .
 they've got to drill 2 in. deeper into the infection &  let it drain because the infection has (coroaded) his skull... he'll be in the hospital 2-4 days...
  i'm really mad at my cousin for not noticing this sooner.. she raises all 3 of her grandkids...  & i know she love's them.. but if he'd been complaing from a headache for a week i think she should've  seen this...
i raise my grand-daughter(KARLIE-ALMOST 5 ) & I know when she say's something's hurting i look at it...
the picture below is of cameron last night...

Child Loss / wanted to share this about CANDI
« on: December 25, 2012, 07:39:54 PM »
i know a lot of you may not know my niece(CANDI-23) was killed by a 18 yr. old guy that told his 2 friends he was going to scare them to death when he accelerated coming over a hill at 55 mph hitting CANDI head-on killing her instantly... all 3 survived in his vehichle...
CANDI'S son JOSH was just 7 1/2 at the time his mommy was killed... JOSH is 15 now....

9 mo. before CANDI was killed she was paralyzed from the chest down after she was thrown from her horse... she was a barrel racer... a mom, wife, nurse, daughter, sister, niece, grandchild & a friend to everyone...
i miss her sooooo much i don't know what to do... this was after she learned to walk again...



   VICTIM SHARE'S STIRRING ORDEAL ADAMI TAKE'S OVER REINS AT REHAB CENTER   
          ARTICLE FROM HERALD DEMOCRAT ON JAN 20,2005

board members,staff & friends of the rehabilitation center heard straight from the horse-rider's mouth the inspiring story of a young woman's return to health from paralysis.
physical therapist MOLLY HARPER introduced CANDICE ROSS, a 23 year old mother & wife, whose horse-riding accident that happened on AUG.18,2004 changed the fabric of her life.
"as therapist's we will see hundred's of patient's each year & literally thousands throughout our career's." Harper said. " but very few of these people will be engraved in our memorie's. it may be a certain diagnosis or injury, or it may be a particular personality,or it may be someone who so greatly exceeds everyone's expectations that we simply cannot forget them. it is all of these reasons that all of us who work at the center truly admire and will always remember the young lady who is speaking to you tonight."
Ross walked, unassisted & in high heels, to the front of the room, hampered only by a slight limp.

Fighting through the tears, Ross told how the center had helped her repair her life. she said she was an active mom & wife who enjoyed riding horses when she fell off her horse AUG 18,2004. she said she remembered falling & wakng up in terrible pain, her breath knocked out of her. she couldn't get up. she thought she was dying. she was terrified & tried to hide that terror from her little boy & parents who arrived at the same time the paramedics did.
 I remember praying & coming to . i couldn't move my leg's. local paramedics rushed her to texoma medical center where she was airlifted to Dallas methodist hospital, where she learned she fractured her spine. she underwent surgery to remove fragments of bone & rebuild portions of her spine with wire cage's & her rib bone.

She & her family learned she had no bone fragment's in her spinal cord, which was good news. however, doctors didn't give her a lot of hope she'd ever walk again & none that she'd ride again.

with her husband by her side, she was moved from  the Dallas hospital back to sherman,tx. to wilson-in-jone's hospital where she began in-patient rehabilitation. she began to work on her upper body strength and vowed she'd walk before she left the hospital. when she left, she could walk about 60 feet with a walker. it was difficult to get around and she tired easily.

"When i first went to the center, Molly asked me " what my goals were?"
Ross said. " I told them i wanted to walk again & i wanted to ride a horse again. i was using a cane and they started challenging me more and more. I thought, if they can think it up , i'll try it'......  i can't tell you how many times people have walked in and i've been hanging upside down."

The audience laughed with her at the image and again when she said that not only had she learned to walk on her own,without a walker or a cane, but that she also had ridden a horse," but shh-h-h, don't tell my doctors.

Child Loss / GUY THAT KILLED CANDI IS OUT ON THE STREETS AGAIN.
« on: September 30, 2012, 12:58:44 PM »
the guy that killed CANDI was suppose to get out THURS.(SEPT. 27TH)...
  I wasn't thinking about it that day because that's the day we had to take KIERSYN to the DR. for her check-up on her head.. that night my mom brought it up that he was suppose to got out that day.. so i called the next day(FRI. SEPT. 28TH.) TO THE  TEXAS VICTIM'S DIVISION... he got out on SEPT . 27TH... she gave me the information for his parole officer but she didn't know his(parole officer) name..

so she said it would be better if i wait until i get my letter & it should have all the information on it.. then i can talk to the right person & find out everything i want to know because she didn't see any special conditions on it.
my sis(LISA-CANDI'S MOM) got an e-mail a  few weeks earlier that said HE WASN'T ALLOWED TO COME TO "GRAYSON COUNTY"..
that's where our family's from & that's where the wreck happened.CANDI'S buried 1/2 a mile from his parents house.. they've been know to drive buy quite a few time's while we're at her GRAVE.. the cemetary is only about 10 min. from my house. & i have to pass his parents house to get there...

i'll post more when i talk to his parole officer...
please keep us in your thought's & prayers.

Child Loss / KIERSYN'S DR.'S APPOINTMENT
« on: September 28, 2012, 03:05:32 PM »
ME & MY DAUGHTER(BRITTANY  took KIERSYN to her DR.  yesterday... he had already looked at the catscan... he said that babies head's are softer than ours & she could've fell & a blood vessel might have busted. he checked her ears for blood . there was none..
 i said " well her right side of her head feel's squishy."  he felt of it & checked her out good... i really like her pediatrician... he said that yes it does feel squishy but he still believe's KIERSYN is o.k.   
 me & BRITTANY told him it feels like it's went down some since it happened....
 he said if it isn't gone in 2 weeks to bring her back & they might have to do another catscan... i didn't realize this but catscan's have a lot of radiation & they don't want to put KIERSYN through that if they don't have too...
KIERSYN'S almost 8 mo. old & she's crawling,sitting up, pulling up, walking around the coffe table or the couch... she's always on the go...  & her mouth is always on the go too... she say's ma-ma, da-da, bye-bye, & just jabbers all the time..  i'm thankful she's o.k. 
thank's for the prayers..
