But I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; And I did not know they had devised plots against me (saying) "Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, and let us cut him off from the land of the living. That his name be remembered no more."
My precious husband was reckoned as fit for nothing else, as a lamb for slaughter by the County of Orange in California, and was continually treated as if he was no other use and service," but to be slaughtered."
KIND, "A SAINT"
Let me take a moment and tell you about why this man was so
special. You see he had a heart that was bigger then any mountain.
And he had a twinkle in his eyes that were brighter then any
diamond. His voice was always so tender and kind.
He was never loud with words or actions. He was always quiet and peaceful, meek. Most of all Everett was humble. Because of his compassion and his great "love" for our Lord and Savior, he would routinely each day take out his Bible, sit by a lamp, and quietly read from the beginning to the end, over and over and over....He could recite many of the verses and parables that Jesus left for our instructions.
Because of his "LOVE and R E S P E C T" towards me always, and to those along his path, he taught me a great deal about life!
He was purposely placed at a specific time in the year of 1983 just
for me. His appointment was from God to meet me at that special
time! And wouldn't you know, he would be reading his Bible, when
As I look back in time I remember every minute of that first
encounter. This would be a time when my life would suddenly
change forever and the foundation that was being applied would carry on in time unto his death.
"GOD HAD A PLAN ALL ALONG"
Everett loved his bicycle.
Late in years he continued on riding his bike and at one point was on the front page of the newspaper for being the oldest in a race to make it from El Paso Texas to Florida on a bicycle. He left many a young man behind. Everett was fit and lean. Healthy foods was a must, and vitamins were many. But exercising was his passion. He loved to run, and run he did. He would even run along side the county truck where he worked on the flood control for the County of Orange in California while the crew, the rest of the boys rested and napped on it's way back to clock out. The crew would laugh alittle and joke, but Everett kept right up with the county truck and when the boys would tell a dirty joke, Everett said, he would always scold them, he did not want to be a part of any kind of filth. This was my Everett!
Everett loved me with all his heart and every ounce of blood he had in him. He proved his love for me by not only his words but also his actions. He would walk a mile, ten, twenty, whatever it would take to get to me, if ever I needed anything. One time he rode his bicycle 20 miles to get to me. I'll never forget that!
I could alwasys depend on him, he would never let me down. He was my best friend, my every reason to go on, to live.
I've often compared our Love like that of Romeo and Juliet because we could not live without each other, because our love was so solid, so real, so genuine, and mine had a flame that would never die!
My darling husband, my every breath, my light in any dark tunnel,
was snatched away from me by a cruel and evil death at Easter
time in the year 2004, by people whom have never known the Love
such as I have.
If they had, they would have never neglected, tortured, and killed him. He was killed in a "Death Camp"- Nursing Home, in Orange County California. And I his wife of 21 years was kept from seeing him the last 3 months of this angels life. I did not know what was happening or I would have laid down my life for him.
His wish he stated in a Affadavit before two government witnesses and a notary, that he be returned to his wife, removed from this Death Camp!
But his affadavit didn't stand up, so he was sentenced to death like a "Lamb being led to Slaughter."
"LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT REAL LOVE"

THIS WAS EVERETT'S LOVE, AND THIS IS HIS
The two are as one, and until death do they both part, so shall that vow remain forever!!!
I love you Everett, I always will. I promise your heart will go on,
and I will never, no I will never give up on you, even in your
You have left with me something that no one can ever
take away. And that one gift is your Love...............................
It has been a great privilege and honor to have been called your wife Mrs. Rita Hurst, and I shall restore dignity and grace back unto your name for as long as it shall take me. And when the grave swallows me up with it's sting, I will be at last finally happy, for I have come "HOME", not only to be with my Lord and Savior, but with the one I cried slient tears for, and longed to be with even in death.
I will live and present your "legacy" my darling Everett, until God calls me home !
Bye bye my love, a thousand kisses I seal with this.
I love you forever and always,
Since you became alive again, so to speak, when Christ arose from the Dead, now set your sights on the rich treasures and joys of heaven where he sits beside God in the place of HONOR and POWER. Let heaven fill your thoughts; don't spend your time worrying about things down here. You should have as little desire for this World as a Dead person does. Your real life is in heaven with CHRIST and GOD. And when CHRIST who is our real life comes back again, you will SHINE with him and share in all his glories.
Away then with sinful,earthly things; deaden the evil desires lurking within you; have nothing to do with sexual sin, impurity, lust and shameful desires; don't worship the good things of life, for that is idolatry. God's terrible anger is upon those who do such things. You used to do them when your life was still part of this world; but now is the time to cast off and throw away all these rotten garments of anger, haterd, cursing, and dirty language.
Don't tell lies to each other; it was your old life with all its wickedness that did that sort of thing; now it is dead and gone. You are living a brand new life that is continually learning more and more of what is RIGHT, and trying constantly to be more and more like CHRIST who created this new life within you. Wheather a person has CHRIST is what matters.
Since you have been chosen by GOD who has given you this new kind of LIFE, and because of his DEEP LOVE and CONCERN for you, you should practice Tenderhearted mercy and Kindness to others. Don't worry about making a good impression on them but be ready to SUFFER Quietly and Patiently. Be Gentle and ready to Forgive. Most of all, let LOVE guide your Life !!!
