Offering Hope and Help to the Victims of ARD Worldwide


This page is dedicated to those we fondly remember.
They are our fellow ARD suffers, someones friend and/or family.
It is with the sharing of their stories we hope not only to keep them 
in our hearts and memories but also to help and/or educate others.
