It's only fitting that I should post a memorial on this website. My mom has always called me "Turtle". She passed away unexpectedly Jan 28, 2013. I miss her so much, and my life still feels so empty. She was a kind, generous, creative, honest person and a wonderful mother.

I love and miss my dear nephew, and I wanted to do something to make the world a better place in honor of his birthday. Andy brought joy every day he spent on this planet--and he worked to make the world a better place. He released baby sea turtles--so, I wanted to donate to this cause--in his name.

Nicholas Andrew Speights died in a tragic accident in 2006. He was only 6 years old. He loved the Sea Turtles and spent every summer with family in Akumal, Mexico. Akumal means Turtle Bay. He loved to watch the Sea Turtles bobbing their heads above the water. He had a plush Sea Turtle that he carried with him wherever he went. We love you, Nicholas and we will always wish your were back with us again. Six years with you was just not enough. Your Mom, Cheryl still has the plush Sea Turtle you carried everywhere with you. We send you our love wherever you are. Always, GrandMa .

In loving memory of : Harry W. Williams
Kathy, I know that you love the sea turtles, and that you have done plenty of traveling with your father so I thought that ensuring the safe travel of a nest of sea turtles to their new home would be an appropriate memorial for your father. Your father was such a kind man that I am certain that he would be glad to offer a helping hand. This will be one more traveling adventure to add to all of your memories and pictures of travel with your father. I will always have fond memories of your father and will try to always treat others with kindness like your father even though it is sometimes easier to extend kindness to the animal world as compared to the human world. Hopefully, this memorial will touch both worlds. Sincerely, Sally

In loving memory of : Cindy Levin
CIndy's desire to support a sea turtle foundation extends as far back as Christmas of last year. Her dedication was born during a vacation in The British Virgin Islands. While swimming in the vast clear blue waters of the Caribean, she happened upon a sea turtle swimming within a few yards of her. Being upclose to a creature of such beauty was "magical," she remarked. This donation honors her dedication to these beautiful animals that need our help to continue in this world.
In loving memory of : Cindy Levin
Here's hoping you are swimming with the sea turtles for eternity. SIP (Swim In Peace).

I believe I entered my gift of memoriam in the wrong spot , I also think it is directing notification to me and not to the family of who the donation was made in memory of. Can you help me fix this? Jan Cocayne jandeg1216@sbcglobal.net or 314-221-0782

In loving memory of : Mark Dowey
Pat Dowey's mission is to save the turtles. I'm sure Mark would be pleased that we made a donation to her passionate worthy cause.. Although Brian and I are Mark's first cousins we haven't seen each other for years My recollection enjoyed the Mark was a tall handsome cool guy. My memories go back to hanging out with my Aunt Rosemary and Mark as an infant when .Every thing I learned about babies was from my Aunt . Our mother worked so Aunt Rosemary used to watch Brian and I during the Summer month. I was a grown up 12 year .old ,' . Brian connected with Mark and Eddie on Dauphin Island where they all enjoyed each others company. But distance eventually separated the guys. We just regret we didn't make an effort to connect more wit Pat and Mark.
