I took the time to clean up her memorial site today, and put some flowers by the cross.  It made me feel good.  If anyone wants to look at where her Canadian version of her memorial is, check on Google maps, and enter Mollard Avenue and Ritchie Street, Winnipeg, MB.  It is in the NW corner.  I am determined to build Apple a better memorial site in Winnipeg.  It would not cost too much, and I hope I can get all the help and moral support of you all.  I have talked to a Winnipeg MP about it, and he thinks it is a great idea.  We may even ask special permission from city hall to plant a tree at a Winnipeg park, along with a plaque in her honor.

Here you can actually see the cross.  It is at the top of the ditch, in an area with overhead power lines.  It is also has the reputation of being an illegal dumping site for people in the surrounding communities.  Apple deserve better, IMO.

I've heard it probably will not get passed.  I don't really have too much of an opinion on this law.  I would rather stay clear of the politics involved.

A plaque in Apple's honour would be a great idea, whether it be with a tree planted, or on a bench...   We must let our cities know we will never forget our victims, our precious children, who have been murdered.

stumbled across her old social netorking site.  Can't believe it's still up.  God bless you, Roxannne.  Your friends and family will never forget you.
