Memorial Pages

I have several memorial pages dedicated to the women and girls being taken away brutally at a young age. Also, there are several more websites on the lesser-known victims of violence:

Sherrice Iverson: It's been ten years ago since this evil man kill her at a casino in Nevada. He's locked for life.

Shawna Denise Hawk: A beautiful young woman whose life was brutally taken by a serial killer, Henry Louis Wallace on February 20, 1993. He's convicted in murdering nine other women, whom I will cover later on. He's currently on death row.

Latoyia Figueroa: Missing young Philadelphia woman who was the subject of media's reluctance to highlight missing women of color. Her body was found in August 2005. Her sadistic boyfriend was charged and sentenced to life in connection with her murder. Her unborn girl Nyla was murdered as well.

Olamide Adeyooye: Young Nigerian college student who was murderd in 2005. Her perpetrator was tried and convicted in connection with her murder. Here's her memorial page. Please click here for a view.

Valencia Michele Jumper: Another murder victim of serial killer Henry Louis Wallace. A beautiful young woman cruelly taken from that madman on August 10, 1993. He's on death row.

May we remember these young ladies in our hearts and prayers. May they rest in peace, amen.

Thanks so much for remembering these young ladies.

We can only wonder what their lives would have been like if they were still alive.

May they all rest in peace.

To Ann,

Thanks for those kind words. It's been 10 years since Sherrice Iverson was murdered by a white pervert at a casino.

What you've written at Rachel's Tavern is still relevant today. It breaks my heart to see Black women and girls lives being destroyed before their time. They are being destroyed in a society that doesn't give a damn about us.
