Birthday Sept 14, 1968  
About Me I had the honor of being The soulmate of Virgil Butler, who worked in a slaughterhouse, then became an animal rights activist fighting for the animals and workers exploited by factory farming and who left a legacy of information, yet died too soon. I don't eat meat, and I fight for what I believe in. I have a website where Virgil discussed his feelings and experiences as a slaughterhouse worker that became a whistle-blower and an outspoken activist seeking to educate others about the inherent horrific problems in factory farming and where I have written a bit myself. He and I worked to improve the lives of the animals and the workers that are both exploited by the industry, and I continue that work now. He and I have received international attention in radio, newspapers, and online. He and I also founded our own group - Activists Against Factory Farming. I also now volunteer for our local Humane Society, am a foster home for animals, operate the websites, and do whatever I can to help the lost. My home is a sanctuary for all who need it, regardless of species, including humans. I do my best each and every day to make a positive difference in the world, work as a healer and spread love and peace, and continue to walk the path we walked together before he became only with me in spirit.

    My dear friend, here is something different something special I would like to share with you. It is a beautiful expression of Love.


    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    Be happy always!

    A heart wide open leaves us vulnerable, vulnerable to the most intense love and the most painful sadness.  The burden of knowledge is ours to bear and it is not easy.

    Virgil, you were, are, and always will be an inspiration to all of us.  You have done more to help animals in your lifetime than many of us will. For that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now you are at peace.
