"Ginger Snaps" aka Melissa Hayes
Beautiful Liberal Activist and Humanitarian Extraordinaire
Lisa DeArmon and Melissa Hayes-- I Have a Question For You.
"Did I Ever Tell You That You're My Hero?"
Lisa DeArmon and Melissa in 1999 :)

Melissa Hayes, only 31 years old was known as Ginger Snaps to about 8,200 friends on Facebook, but known to thousands more for her perceptive political commentary and posts, and her 37 year old cousin Robbie DeArmon died in an SUV crash early on Wednesday, October 5th of 2011 in La Vista, Nebraska. Melissa had just moved back to Nebraska to be closer to her cousins and other family members, from her Las Vegas home, and Robbie’s twin brother, Bobbie had died just a couple of years back, leaving the only surviving adult family member Lisa DeArmon. Lisa is a single Mom of two, and Robbie was helping put Lisa’s two children through post-secondary education and was a partner with Lisa in their painting business.

Lisa faced the sudden need to finance the funerals of two loved ones, and despite some help from others she’s still had to borrow nearly $10,000 to finance Ginger and Robbie’s funerals, and now at Christmastime she is uncertain where the money will come from for a holiday meal and presents for the seven kids she now has at home, between her own and those of her two deceased brothers! What a woman Lisa truly is. I spoke with her again today, she is obviously sad, but doing whatever she can to ensure a Merry Season for her family of 8.

which took his own life and that of Ginger Snaps.
Lisa DeArmon, hero single Mom,
has stepped up and is caring for Robbie's kids
In a day and an age when people turn their back on their own responsibilities for their own kids (Melissa would have probably pointed out that Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, for example, when he was cheating on his second wife and divorcing her, went to court in order to secure no child support obligations for his minor child at that time), LISA DEARMON, JUST LIKE MELISSA HAYES/GINGER SNAPS, AND ROBBIE DEARMON IS AN INSPIRATION AND A GENUINE ROLE MODEL FOR OUR NATION AND FOR ALL PEOPLE. Do you hear me Lisa? I hope so! The Nobel Prize For Love should go to LISA DEARMON and her kids. We set up the logistics today so that all you have to do is click on the link here; https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=8MW6D6G2H7JNG and below this article and you can ensure some financial support for the family, a nice hot meal, a Christmas tree and gifts for the kids this coming Sunday. PLEASE GIVE AND GIVE GENEROUSLY, GET YOUR CREDIT/DEBIT CARD OUT NOW, NOT LATER PLEASE!!!

You ARE a hero, Ms. Lisa DeArmon!

Melissa was an atheist, and I love me some atheists, and she and I were successful at establishing a love and admiration for each other’s’ differences. I will never be able to repay Melissa for the things she gave me while she roamed this earth, such as embracing a person with differences, and encouraging me to write, and advocating for things of which I am a beneficiary today and on, and on, and on.  I am a Christian Seminarian myself and a member of the United Church of Christ (the Congregational church), and Lisa and most of the kids in her care consider themselves to be such too, and all look forward to celebrating the holiday in Lisa’s awesome household. Ginger Snaps helped thousands and IT IS PAYBACK TIME. If you are a liberal, if you consider yourself a humanitarian, if you knew Ginger at all, or not, THIS IS MY CAUSE OF THE SEASON BAR NONE. IF YOU WANT TO GIVE SOMETHING THAT WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE DONATE HERE AND NOW TO THE DEARMON FAMILY/GINGER SNAPS FUND please!
I still love you Ginger, I miss you and I still disagree, and I know that you are smiling at me, Lisa and all those precious kids, as are Robbie and Bobbie today. <3
You have the power.
To make a family's holiday!
Lord, Please grant Lisa all that she needs in the days to come; especially in this the advent week of your coming; spiritually, emotionally, physically, financially, and in all forms of sustenance that she will  need to provide for the family that she has so heroically assumed responsibility for, dear God. The reason for the season is the kids we often say, Lord, and Lisa’s reason and purpose in life is dedicated to these seven precious gifts, now her children, Lord. Despite all the adversity she faces, Lord, Lisa inspired me Lord and honored you by saying that she “is honored to be able to have” your children in her household, Lord. I ask for generosity on behalf of all who read my words, and that Lisa and family may find peace and joy this December 25th, I rest assured that they will have love, because I ‘ve been honored by talking with and getting to know Lisa and I know that you’ve steeped her with an abundance of unconditional love. May all these things be Your will. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
