JO ANN BROWN: FAKE LIBERAL ATTACKS YET AGAIN: BEWARE FACEBOOK MONEY GRUBBING "LIBERAL" SEEKING PRIVATE INFO FROM FRIENDS!

Jo Ann Brown's Real Business is Not Liberalism it's Making Money

Pink Floyd seems to be Jo Ann Brown's own personal financial adviser:
"Money! It's a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands
And make a stash!"
She's good at this!
This is the complete text of an absurd chat at 3pm initiated by Jo Ann Brown and myself:

Jo Ann Brown: Please provide the following information - State you live in, your Congressman's name, and District number.


Steve Alexander: And how are you? Lol. CT, Rosa DeLauro, 3rd.Who are you? CongressWOMAN, incidentally...


Jo Ann Brown: Trying to get my fb friends together by dist..


Steve Alexander: Jo Ann, we're on the same page politically, but I don't know you and barging in with a chat line as you just did is NOT the way to win friends and influence people. And it took you forever to reply and you still haven't answered MY question: And how are you? Lol Jo Ann, get some tact and skill, please - this is NOT helpful to our cause AT ALL.


Jo Ann Brown: Steve, I do apologize for not answering you faster. I'll be the first to admit that I need some help. People Power and trying to do 3 things at once is a bit much. Jo Ann Brown - ST Louis, MO - Lacy Clay - Dist 1.


Steve Alexander: Please post the apology on your wall below my comment, it will only help you. And then I can find it in my heart to accept it. Otherwise my inclination is more along the lines of simply deleting your account altogether. To be quite honest...
ONO! Jo Ann said GOOD BYE!
:(((((((
Jo Ann Brown: good bye.
Well, sigh....
I guess I could always read her books instead now.
But it just won't be the same. Aww. Poor Steve.
I don't have Jo Ann as my Facebook friend.
Steve Alexander: My advice is also not to do 3 things at once. You're hurting our cause. And your good bye is absurd. I will publish this whole thread if you continue with your lack of humility and your self-aggrandizing chat here. If you can apologize in private why not do so in public?


Jo Ann has not replied beyond her two words: "good bye" after admitting her error privately and apologizing privately and saying "I'LL BE THE FIRST TO SAY THAT I NEED SOME HELP!" I call upon you to be big enough to offer your private apology in public, to change your ways when you approach people about liberal Democratic politics and to do so with tact and even friendliness, or to abandon your efforts because they are COUNTERPRODUCTIVE TO THE CAUSE.
So I went ahead and posted the entire “Private” Facebook chat on Jo Ann Brown’s “Public” Facebook wall, and requested her public apology, suggesting to her that by so doing it would help her and the cause. She not only refused to do so she ignored my plea. Then I posted several articles( links to these articles are here:  http://unabashedleft.blogspot.com/2011/07/not-so-gallant-ray-gallant-liberal.html and http://unabashedleft.blogspot.com/2011/07/another-faux-liberal-attacks-check-out.html) for her of other so called “liberals” who have been widely read on the pages of Unabashed Left after abusing your intrepid commentator. Included among these were the following gems which also were based solely upon the direct text of comments made by abusive alleged ‘liberals.’ I prefer doing this to Tea Baggers, but what I find is that these ‘liberals’ are actually Tea Baggers in drag. I went to Jo Ann Brown’s profile and found the apparent reason for Jo Ann’s true interest in acquiring info on people, which is her finance business, called Money-Tutor, it turns out she is a financial adviser and the dividing line between recruiting for business and for politics is so blurred as to be non-existent. Turns out this liberal is a money-grubbing financial adviser using the Democratic Party to widen her customer base. Her efforts are so transparent as to be unreal. Her wall is clearly nothing these days but a mission to locate persons who are involved in party politics and to secure their locations, as such demographics would of course indicate a fairly educated population with considerable income, and generating names and locations would enable simple software to generate mailing lists, etc. which would enable her to solicit business unbeknownst to the Democratic or liberal activists she approaches for their identity, ‘congressman’ and district. What an obscene use of the Democratic and liberal principles. Friends of Jo Ann Brown beware and I recommend providing her with no information whatever!


Here is what the genuinely non-liberal Jo Ann Brown offers about herself in her own Facebook profile:


I don't know fer sure what Jo Ann Brown looks like but this image is the one I have in my head for
some unknown reason.
She sure is cute, but I wouldn't call this a poster child for liberalism. Lol ma'am!

And we finally arrive at the truth of the matter, Jo Ann Brown is no liberal looking for information
about people in order to advance liberalism at all. She's in the finance business, all about making

***********************************
*Interestingly, if you'll note, Jo Ann chose not to list any Philosophy even though Philosophy was selected as an item for her profile. :D

I followed up by sending the following private messages after Jo Ann Brown unfriended me at 3:45pm. She also removed my links to several articles from Unabashed Left. : (


Unabashed Left: Caught out Jo Ann, I'll be publishing you later today. Congratulations, you will be read on all 6 populated continents, including this from your own money-making website, which I can see is actually what you're all about! OMG you are way too transparent, and I shall be doing a much more thorough investigation into your finances. Lol my former friend!

And I then quoted her own mission statement from her NOT SO LIBERAL website:
Objective I help people realize that personal finance means more than living within their means and knowing how to balance a checkbook.


Personal finance is not taught in the schools. Yet, people today are responsible for their retirement planning and are forced to make investment decisions that they have not been trained for. The two are like vinegar and oil - they don't mix.


I have 3 objectives:


1. To help people overcome their fear of finance and become better prepared to make the investment choices required in their company's 401(k) plan and retirement future.

I then concluded my private message with:
I'll be sure you get a copy of my article. And thanks for the material! VERY interesting marketing technique and means of acquiring a customer base. Hmmm. Funnier than heck! :D


http://www.money-tutor.webs.com/


By merely following links from her so-called political facebook page to her business/finance and publishing money-grubbing endeavors I found a bunch of books, seminars and articles for sale by Jo Ann Brown including this endorsement of a so-called non-materialistic liberal by a dude calling himself Keith Machisen:
Yaknow Keith Machisen, I don't like prejudging things, and I admit I ain't read very much of Jo Ann's product,
and really don't plan on it,
but I'd be willing to bet that the Mona Lisa this tome is NOT, dude.
Perhaps 'masterpiece' is a stretch. Didja make any cash yerself
for calling her book that, dude? Didja? Lol!
“Jo Ann Brown has made a masterpiece. Reading on a subject that everyone needs to know... How to make money!!!”


THIS IS GENUINE TESTIMONY FROM HER OWN WEBSITE AS TO WHAT JO ANN BROWN IS TRULY ALL ABOUT: HOW TO MAKE MONEY; FOR JO ANN BROWN! DON’T GIVE HER ANY INFORMATION SHE REQUESTS AND UNFRIEND HER TODAY IF SHE IS A FB FRIEND IS MY ADVICE!


And I added one last message to invite her back to the fold:


Unabashed Left: BTW, I still accept apologies publicly 24/7 for those who behave badly in what they imagine to be 'private.' AND I'd be glad to accept your friend request back, I'm so sorry you chose to unfriend me. Foolish stuff!


To all my friends on Facebook: Beware of Jo Ann Brown and do NOT provide any personal information she requests, is my very strong suggestion! And to Jo Ann Brown; You are welcomed to come back to my friend list and I still invite your apology in public, I will NOT accept private apologies for misbehavior from anyone who imagines that abusing others online is acceptable for any reason, and be warned that if you choose to do so, you just might be published here and elsewhere! :D
Don Henley and his Eagles told us about Jo Ann Brown:
She kept comin' back for more, she
took it to the limit one more time,
so I put her on the highway.
She is now
BLOCKED, REPORTED AND DELETED!

Joanne apparently liked being published so much that more than a month later, she sent me this "Private" abusive message on Facebook:


Jo Ann Brown: You are an idiot. You've gone all out of your way to discredit me as a liberal democrat because you think I'm making money. That's funny! All of my work is volunteer based. I help people with the knowledge that I have. It's all free. People like you can't imagine people helping others. You can be a money making liberal Democrat. But, that's not what I do.

Steve Alexander: Goodbye. Blocked, reported AND deleted. Have a better and more moral life from here on out. :) All I've done is quote YOU and publish YOUR OWN comments (and mine) and self-descriptions and website information. I shall, of course add this final gem to the article and repost it today with today's date. Thanks for the added editorial comment, and for your concern for others. I strongly recommend NOT accosting people in this manner - with this very message, and with the chat 'request' you made for my confidential info. I do NOT trust you, I do NOT believe you, especially since each time you've approached me it’s been in a manner most rude and intimidating. The first time you approached me was blindsiding me with this via a FB chat: "Jo Ann Brown: Please provide the following information - State you live in, your Congressman's name, and District number." No hello's, how rya's or nuthins. The second time you approach me is with: “You are an idiot."



Why would I trust anything you say, or believe anything you write? You are anything BUT liberal or concerned for others. Each time you’ve approached this stranger you've been abusive, unapologetic and mean-spirited. YOU, m'dear qualify as a Tea Bagger, a John Bircher, a Republithief, or perhaps worse. But liberal? Nah. Congratulations. You're published once again. But now for the last time. Because you ARE: Blocked, reported, and deleted. I recommend 4 books: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. THEY document the life of a true liberal. And I recommend that you look at others a bit less when it comes to critiquing. Was it Socrates? "The self-examined life is NOT worth living." Seeya!




Lisa: Thanks Unk for that good advice. You always give good advice. Well... umm... well... almost always!
Unabashed Left: What do you mean "Almost always?"
Lisa: How 'bout a hug Unk?
And me and Uncle UL, we hugged, hugged, and hugged.
The end.
For now! <3    :D
And don't ferget everbody, instead of going to Jo Ann's silly website, let's re-elect President Obama and go to his website:

Unabashed Medical Update: Surgery, Tumors - Thank God for FDR! (My medical situation on Oct 21, 2011)

Unabashed Leftist Fanatic Steve Alexander, photographed by my local daily newspaper,

MY MEDICAL UPDATE: TUMORS AND SURGERY, OH MY!



by Unabashed Left on Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 5:12pm.MY LATEST MEDICAL UPDATE




Those who have been along for my ride for a while know that I’ve had repeated medical concerns for a few years now, which ultimately placed me on Social Security Disability, Medicare, Medicaid, Public Housing and Food Stamps, for all of which I am eternally grateful and working my butt off to return to independence with considerable success (I am a full time Grad Student now at Hartford Seminary, working there and working for myself as a writer/journalist—with all my friends’ support of my Unabashed project). I had radiation last year for an endocrine illness, had pneumonia, with underlying 200/100 BP, and a 102 temp. I’ve had symptoms galore, and recently pain in an extreme manner.


I’m pleased to report that Dr. Surani Fernando of Endocrine Associates oversaw the successful radiation treatment which has concluded. I’ve been to other specialists and have had some relatively minor treatments, successful for the most part, for smaller issues.
I wound up adoring my chiropractor and her practice, and it works for oodles of folks,
but not on the case of my particular spinal malfeasance. :(


Late last month I started having an exacerbation of a 15 year chronic problem with spine pain, and more recently y spasmodic attacks which were threatening to compromise my ability to perform my work and class assignments. The folks at the Seminary, including my new boss, Director of Administration Rose Lezak, my professors and my new friends there have been extraordinary in their concern and support for me through this recent difficulty.


I went to a physiatrist who ordered x-rays and a spine MRI. The Radiology detected stenosis, nerve damage, soft tissue damage and a bone spur on my lower spine. But the headline of this spinal MRI was a peripheral view of my left kidney, and the radiologist and the physiatrist as well as my new primary care were concerned to find a multitude of tumors on that kidney, including one considerably larger and potentially threatening one. I have a history of 50% loss of functioning in my kidneys bilaterally (50% loss in both the left and in the right). I have a nephrology (kidney) appointment scheduled and a CAT scan will be the most likely first step, followed by a biopsy if called for.


I wouldn't wish my spine as it is currently constituted upon anyone.
Well, let me get honest.
Anyone who doesn't belong to a political party that begins with a
"T"
and
ends with an
"A"
and has an
"E"
in the middle.
;o)
The late Robert Palmer loved his doctor. To tellya the truth I'm kinda tired of 'em.
He sings:
Doctor Doctor
Meanwhile, I visited a spine surgeon at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford yesterday, and I will be having surgery during the holiday break in December on my spine to fuse my 4th and 5th vertebrae. I will likely be hospitalized for a night or two, and the likelihood is that I should be fit to return to school and work in January without missing a class. A friend is actually undergoing similar surgery tomorrow with the very same surgeon, so I will find out how she does, but she’s spoken glowingly of this surgeon, and my research and experience yesterday bears this out.
I admit to concern about my kidney situation, but am reserving any serious concern until a diagnosis and/or course of treatment is established. My concern is that with 50% loss of functioning in the right kidney already in place, any further loss in the left could cause a need for dialysis (which is usually only necessary in cases where the kidneys’ total functioning loss is at 80% or so).


I am most grateful that friends here in CT have already stepped up to offer support when I may need it, and for the GOVERNMENT MEDICAL INSURANCE (NOT OPTION, GOVERNMENT MEDICINE) which is the only reason I’m able to begin the end of my disability at all, and get my medical needs met. And I am grateful to my God for giving me the opportunity to generate income and support by studying Him, advancing what I perceive to be important principles he espoused, and for His sacrifice on the Cross. Just my humble feelings, I appreciate, admire, respect, and love those of other faiths, of my agnostic friends and my atheist gallery of amigos/as. Prayers, {{{hugs}}},


No worries, nobody's got it better 'n me. Some points to ponder. I couldn't work full time and take care of myself without taking advantage of the Social Security that was set up under Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt when I was declared 100% disabled by my own physicians and by the government medical people as well in January 2007. 6 months later I was eligible for Medicare, also sponsored by a Democratic President. I tried working part time, but wound up sicker and had to leave that position. So now I was without any income except my SS Disability and officially in poverty according to federal and state guidelines. So I now qualified for Food Stamps and Medicaid also signed into law by Democratic Presidents. Recognizing that my disability would be very long term, and having a change in marital status, my poverty status now qualified me for the public housing for the elderly and disabled in my home town, subsidized by grants written into law by a Democratic President, and basic essential improvements required for keeping the buildings open (removal of asbestos, etc) with TARP money paid to local contractors and Housing employees, signed into law by Barack Obama. 

I started my writing project last year when I realized that it made me feel better, and then realized I could make some money at it. sitting down. I made some major changes in my life plans to accommodate my handicaps, and applied to Hartford Seminary where financial aid, signed into law by both Democrat and Republican Presidents has enabled me to attend and to begin working there under a work study program signed into law by a Democratic President. I have 100% GOVERNMENT INSURANCE, AND NEARLY 100% COVERAGE FOR ALL MY MEDICAL NEEDS AT PRESENT, NOT GOVERNMENT OPTION NOR PRIVATE SECTOR WALL STREET MEDICAL INSURANCE. With the help of a social safety net we've built over time as a nation I WILL get better and WILL no longer require public assistance soon. Of that I am certain. The myth that those of us who require the help of these programs are lazy and just want to 'hang out' IS a myth, and I take exception to any right winger who suggests otherwise. I've spent most of my life in a career dedicated to working with disabled public beneficiaries who, much like everyone else, strive for the most part for maximum independence, freedom and individual as well as community accomplishments. I've been working my a$$ off since going on disability to accommodate my new disabilities in life so that I can pursue a different and even more exciting and productive line of work and lifestyle. And I appreciate my legions of liberal friends who work tirelessly daily in order to ensure that myself, and all of us have these opportunities. Shut up Tea Party. Be quiet Wall Street Greedsters. Pay YOUR fair share millionaires and billionaires. Guess what? We're setting up in eyeshot ofya. We're occupying your area until you realize that "There But For The Grace Of God, Go I!" 

So don't worry about me! I'm hooked up. I have my Medicare and Medicaid, and friends & friends who are family who are with me every step of the way. My love to all who have given help and support, who have offered to as this surgery approaches and the other pending medical matters, to God and to the elected officials who have the willingness to stand up to greed. Especially, thank YOU Mr. President Obama. Let's re-elect this dude, otherwise you WILL find yourself up the creek without a safety net sooner or later. ;o) ♥ Peace please....

GINGER SNAPS-BEAUTIFUL LIBERAL ACTIVIST & COUSIN DIE IN SUV CALAMITY; SHE'S GONE! IRONY: SHE HELPED THE POOR, FUNDS NEEDED FOR FUNERAL.


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 Robby DeArmon died in an SUV crash early on Wednesday, October 5th 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, just two weeks ago. A health care professional, but even more a woman of compassion and a friend to so many, including this commentator, Melissa’s passing is a true calamity, and in speaking with her cousin and Robby’s sister, Lisa DeArmon as well as with Lisa’s daughter Bianca, it became evident that Rob’s passing is an equally tragic event for many, especially his loved ones. Rob had been setting aside much of his income for the education of Lisa’s daughters, and was truly dedicated to this single Mom and her children, and demonstrated it with his actions as well as his affections.



I can say more about Melissa. She was my friend. She encouraged me to write over a year ago now, and kept urging me to set up this very website. She would share her personal interests and I would share mine. She was concerned. She was available at all hours and would have and receive advice well, offering far better than she ever received from me. She considered herself an atheist, and when we first discussed religion, I am a Christian, it was awkward for no more than a few minutes. Despite her strong views on religion, she was not only accepting but embraced those with differing views and she taught me that atheist does NOT mean unaccepting. In fact she taught me much more about acceptance than I ever could have taught her. She was my first friend who had such strong feelings about her atheism, and yet who befriended me and encouraged me to write.


Because of her and a few others, I launched this website a little more than a year ago. It’s been successful, after much trial and error, beyond my wildest dreams. It’s read on all 6 populated continents daily, and being read 24 hours a day. Thousands read each week and likely more than a quarter million this year. Ironically, the most popular article on these pages has a strong religious tone to it, “My Gun Story,” a fiction piece introducing my 11 year old character Lisa grilling her pastor, Reverend Sara, and putting her in her place while professing her own faith in an anti-war/weapon message has had over 16,000 readers alone. I now publish at two pages for Examiner.com (Hartford Government Examiner and New Haven American Culture Examiner) and one other website. I, now have one fanpage and two pages at Facebook now that have nearly 5,000 followers. And just this past week I reserved the domain name unabashedleft.com for this writing project. Because of this project and my main mission, which is to advance the cause of liberalism and progressivism, but growing to understand that I can’t do this without recognizing that it is my own set of values based on my own Christianity which has led me to beginning as a graduate student in the M.A. program at Hartford Seminary where I now work part time as well. None of this would have happened without the support, encouragement and advice of a handful of people such as the wonderful Melissa Hayes more than a year ago. I can say Isabella Stone, Becky Riley, and Sally Marx were very supportive and encouraging. Without them this project wouldn’t have happened. Melissa belongs at the very top of that list being the strongest political person in that group, along with Becky. I so admired what they were accomplishing online that I viewed them both as role models and mentors. Becky still is, even as Melissa’s voice has been silenced at this point.

John Lennon: God

Melissa was empathetic to the poor, the meek, an advocate for justice, racial and ethnic equality, gender and sexual preference equality, and a tireless advocate for peace. She was literate, intelligent, intellectual, and yet understood how to get her message across to all.


I’ll let Melissa’s list of favorite quotations speak for her own personal views and her wide ranging sources for her deeply held convictions:


"A promise is a comfort to a fool" ~ Gregory Isaacs


"Faith means not wanting to know what is true" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche


“I do not purport to know where ignorant men are sure” ~ Clarence Darrow


“I will let no man drag me so low as to make me hate him” ~ Booker T. Washington


"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities" ~ Voltaire


"Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives" ~ John Stuart Mill


"That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence" ~ Christopher Hitchens


“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.” ~ MLK


"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep-seated need to believe" ~ Carl Sagan


"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" ~ Epicurus


“I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion or preventing the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation of church and state” ~ Thomas Jefferson


“Religion has ever filled the mind of man with darkness, and kept him in ignorance of his real duties and true interests. It is only by dispelling the clouds and phantoms of Religion, that we shall discover Truth, Reason, and Morality. Religion diverts us from the causes of evils, and from the remedies which nature prescribes; far from curing, it only aggravates, multiplies, and perpetuates them” ~ Baron D’Holbach


"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of... Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all" ~ Thomas Paine


Among the people Melissa admired were Mahatma Gandhi, RFK, MLK, and FDR. She described herself as:


“A political junky, in love with my country and the diversity of its people… Passionately!


I enjoy listening to progressive talk radio, my favorites are Alan Colmes, Thom Hartmann and Ed Schultz.


Shout-Outs to all my GI's and Devil-Dogs! ♥


I am independent and athletic. I enjoy dancing and all forms of music. I don’t drink or do drugs but I won't judge you if you do.


Just here kicking it around and having fun doing it... I love to laugh and have a good time, I take pleasure in meeting interesting people. I enjoy running my dogs in the park, going to the gym, shopping, shows, casinos, shopping, reading and night life… did I mention shopping?


*Disclaimer* I dislike racists, bigots and homophobes. I have a razor sharp tongue with rude people, so please be civil. I believe it’s nice to be nice.


Just me being real, being me...”


The photos accompanying this article are of the extraordinarily beautiful (inside and out) Ginger Snaps. What a sweet cookie she was. The posters are ones that Melissa particularly liked and give an indication of her passion for politics, her insight and her humor. The songs accompanying this article are Imagine by John Winston Ono Lennon, which reminds me exactly of the values Melissa personified. And the second is “God” by Mr. Lennon in deference to her own atheist views, which John shared with her for much of his life. Diversity is a wondrous thing to celebrate, and both John and Melissa taught me this. I salute all atheists and agnostics and all people. So I offer John’s anthem. Tomorrow would have been Mr. Lennon’s 71st birthday had he not been killed by handgun almost 31 years ago at the tender age of 40. In speaking with Melissa’s cousin Lisa last evening, Lisa said that she and most of her family were believers in God. I told Lisa of my own view that despite Melissa’s beliefs, my own is that she is in the embrace of a continuing life which has been transformed into something more glorious than we can imagine. So, one last time Melissa, I disagree but I respect your opinion. ;o)


In the saddest of ironies, since she just recently moved and transplanted her life to be closer to her loved ones in Nebraska and because two funerals are necessary for one family facing these huge losses, the financial burden has become problematic. The last thing single Mom Lisa and Melissa and Rob’s whole family need at this difficult time (sadly, Rob’s twin brother died not too long ago also) is the distraction of financial concerns and the possibility of not being able to provide a memorable memorial. Especially considering how hard and effectively Melissa worked for those less fortunate financially herself, and how much Rob contributed financially to Lisa’s family. But out of difficulties and challenges come opportunities. And your opportunity today is to assist someone of rare beauty, with the same cause as you if you read my stuff, and to aid Melissa’s family in their direst moment of need. And with each donation, what is given is way more than financial assistance. It’s the knowledge that there are people like us out here who love unconditionally and act upon that basis, as Melissa and Rob did. And the knowledge for her family that Melissa touched so many of us in so many wonderful and beautiful ways. Please call the Hoffman Funeral Home in Omaha to donate at 402-391-3900 or click their link below. Thank you and for those who are believers please pray for the family and for those who don’t please keep them in your hopes and send whatever energy you can their way, and to all, donate if you possibly can.


I loved you. I love you. I will love you.


Goodbye Ms. Ginger Snaps.

Please donate today.


Phonecalls to the funeral home should get you instructions, and a check via snail mail specified for the account of Lisa DeArmon for Melissa Hayes and Robby DeArmon's expenses should do the job as well. The phone number for the funeral home is: 402-391-3900 and the ground mail addy is 

Heafy, Heafy, Hoffman, Dvorak, and Cutler
7805 West Center Rd.
Omaha,NE 68124

Or feel free to call me, Steve Alexander at 203-909-3592 and I will try to help out. I just spoke with Lisa DeArmon this afternoon, Sunday October 9th, and it's her hardest day so far emotionally, and  now she's not only caring for her 3 kids, but Robs as well as trying to make these funeral arrangements. OMG! PLEASE HELP!
