*1 for me, 1 for my grandmother.About my Mother
In late 2008 my mother Nilda past away from hepatitis C at the age of 56 years old. She battled the illness for 2 years before it claimed her life. Sadly due to our family having low funds she had to be buried quick. With no time to to contact her friends and distant relations there was only a handful of family one hand. I had just lost my job and wanted so much to help buy a tombstone but I could not help. Even after so long it still breaks my heart that I could not do anything. Her grave was sent to a distant cemetery so I do not get to see her as much as I like. With this brick I can honor my mother’s memory and have a place close by that I can visit.
My mother my not be perfect but really what mother is? We had our ups and downs growing up but I can’t picture wanting anyone else to be my mother. She gave me love and lifted me out of my hard times. She wanted me to learn to take care of my self and I know she loved me to the end. About the Zoo
The Cape May County Zoo is a small park in New Jersey. It’s complete free to enter and the animals seem well cared for and healthy. Many people and classes visit it all year around. The are in the process of expanding it and also help in breeding programs for threaten species such as the Snow leopard. About the Snow Leopards
The zoo has a female Snow leopard a threaten species in the wild. The zoo has been bless with a successful snow leopard breeding program with two sets of cubs in recent years. In 2013 their Snow Leopard Himani birthed 2 cubs a female and
male.I visited them just recently and they look to be growing fast and health despite the dirty looks I got from the little male.
The zoo is in the process of building a new maternity den and bigger habitat thanks to the great success of the snow leopard breeding program. Which has produced 7 cubs in 4 years and is quote one of the “most successful snow leopard breeding program in the country”.
The following is from the official site:
Your gift will help us realize the goal of a new maternity den and habitat
that will provide a safe, stimulating and natural environment for the
breeding of these
beautiful endangered cats. So far we’ve raise over $125,000 towards our
first phase target of $250,000.
We are in the design stage for a
proposed 2,000 sq.ft. snow leopard habitat. The habitat will include a
water feature, elevated land forms, cooling elements and 500
sq ft masonry den and holding building. The enclosure will be stainless
steel mesh and the visitor area will have a glass wall for nose-to-nose
