Missing Cherubs

This page is dedicated to missing cherubs. I am preparing this site to display Missing Cherubs in Florida. In some way we hope and pray that someone will recognize these photographs and will please call the local authorities.

Our son is no longer with us. We know what it is like to having a missing child. Our child was not missing in the sense that these missing cherubs are, but none the less, he is now missing and will never return to us. If there is one small chance our missing cherubs can be returned to their families, it would mean such joy to their parents. Our son can never be returned. We have to carry him in our hearts. If you have any information on any of these innocent cherubs, please tell someone..anyone. Help these cherubs to come home.

In Loving Memory of Our Son
John Dion Ridenour Marvel

John Dion Ridenour-Marvel
September 8, 1968 - January 20, 1989

John Dion Ridenour-Marvel was my only son and he was my whole life.

John was such a caring and loving person. Most children are embarrassed to show their affection to their parents, but not John. It didn't matter to John who was around, he always let us know his affections. His last words to me were, "Mom, I love you." I hear those words every day of my life.

John was killed as a result of an accidental shooting at the age of 20.

We miss you, John! There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think of you and want you back. You were too young to die as you did. You hated violence, yet that is what took your life. We'll see you again in heaven.

Mom and Dad,
Sonya and David Marvel

My thanks go to Sharon L. Mnich for this beautiful memorial! Sharon is a very sincere person and I am very greatful to her!

A Prayer For The Children

We pray for the Children
Who sneak popsicles before supper,
Who erase holes in math workbooks,
Who can never find their shoes.
And we pray for those
Who stare at photographers from behind barbed wire,
Who can't bound down the street in a new pair of sneakers,
Who never "counted potatoes,"
Who are born in places where we wouldn't be caught dead,
Who never go to the circus,
Who live in an X-rated world.

We pray for children
Who bring us sticky kisses and fistfuls of dandelions,
Who hug us in a hurry and forget their lunch money.
And we pray for those who never get dessert,
Who have no safe blanket to drag behind them,
Who watch their parents watch them die,
Who can't find any bread to steal,
Who don't have any rooms to clean up,
Whose pictures aren't on anybody's dresser,
Whose monsters are real.

We pray for children
Who spend all their allowance before Tuesday,
Who throw tantrums in the grocery store and pick at their food,
Who like ghost stories,
Who shove dirty clothes under the bed,
Who never rinse out the tub,
Who get visits from the tooth fairy,
Who don't like to be kissed in front of the carpool,
Who squirm in church and scream in the phone,
Whose tears we sometimes laugh at and
Whose smiles can make us cry.

And we pray for those
Whose nightmares come in the daytime,
Who will eat anything,
Who have never seen a dentist,
Who aren't spoiled by anybody,
Who go to bed hungry and cry themselves to sleep,
Who live and move, but have no being.

We pray for children
Who want to be carried and for those who must,
Who we never give up on,
And for those who don't get a second chance.
For those we smother and . . .
For those who will grab the hand of anybody kind enough to
Offer it.
