GUESS WHERE I SPENT TIME ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2nd, 2010
I made it a point to look for "your" bench Murt, and was so happy when I finally found it on my second attempt.
We spent about an hour sitting there enjoying the view and looking at all the beautiful sights. The sunset was simply gorgeous, dare I say even more gorgeous then our sunsets here on Grand Bahama Island. Mount Dora is by far one of my most favorite little Towns. Though beauty abounds, it is the feeling of calm and serenity that comes over me as soon as I pass through Downtown Mount Dora that keeps me wanting to visit every chance I get.
The only down side about visiting the Park at Mount Dora these days is that it invokes anger in me all over again that there still to this day is NO bench with a plaque reading: IN LOVING MEMORY OF CAYLEE MARIE ANTHONY! That bench should have been there Murt, and the only reason why it is not is because of the spiteful, vindictive and hateful interferrence of Ms. Alexandria Goddard and her fellow cohorts.
I've earned the right (thanks to Cindy Anthony ordering me to get up off my butt and help find her granddaughter) to keep wondering WHY THE HELL is there still not a bench at that location dedicated to the loving memory of beautiful little Caylee Marie Anthony, especially considering that Mount Dora was for sure the last place she was seen alive, according to verifiable sources.
My only solace is believing that certainly during little Caylee Marie's visits to see Great-grandma and Great-grandpa she would have had opportunities to play in the kiddies playground, walk on the dock, marvel at the fishes, chase the squirrels, count the different birds, pet the many doggies being walked by their masters and even witness one or two of those gorgeous sunsets.
In my opinion, there is absolutely NO other place more perfect for little Caylee Marie to be Memorialized but right there on a bench opposite the lighthouse, looking out onto the lake - a place where it is calm, serene and peaceful, yet so full of life -- it indeed is a happy place.
Murt, what a great place for you to have in order to go and spend time thinking of your son John and reminiscing of your time together. I am so glad that you live so near to Mount Dora Park and can get there within minutes when the mood hits you out of the blue to be with your son. Such beautiful and peaceful surroundings.
I've said it many times before Murt, but I'll say it again - THANK YOU for all you did to try and achieve what you and all of us (your sincere followers) wanted for little Caylee Marie. Your heart and ours was definitely in the right place. Hopefully someone in little Caylee Marie's family will see fit to dedicate a bench to her Memory, or will allow someone else to do so, right there at Mount Dora Park overlooking Lake Dora.
