little caylee and her angels

by Andrea O'Connell

This took my breath away.   I bet it will make you catch your breath, too.

Photo credit:"lil toad."

Laurli, a contributor to this blog, shared this picture with me yesterday. It’s titled “Caylee’s Team.”

This picture will do the writing for me tonight.

I think you’ll see why.

    Andrea, Laura was kind enough to give me a link to that pic too. It makes tears comes to your eyes yet puts a smile on your face. I can honestly say that picture speaks volumes. I hope someone sends it to Linda and Jeff.

    I’m all teary-eyed by that picture. I do hope that Linda, Jeff and Frank get to see that. (Let’s not forget Frank George! There are no bit players in a play so he is important, too )

    I picture her on HHJP’s lap, also.

      Ahhh! On HHJP’ss lap! That’s a great image, too, Sherry! And you’re so right! Frank George is very much an angel. :-)

    That is just beautiful!
    This is what it is all about,
    The Prosecution Team are absolutely “Caylee’s Angels”.
    I never had any Doubt about that.
    This Picture does our Heart good.
    We know Caylee is in good Hands

    Hi Andrea, were you ever so right. This picture did take my breath away but put a huge smile on my face too. Just look at that adorable smiling angel Caylee all snuggled in with her angel team, Linda, Jeff, and Frank.. I too would love for the Caylee team to have this picture sitting on their desk in court, as they are working so hard for justice for her, and what a boost it would be for them to see their tiny little client right there cheering them on. . Caylee’s angel’s are surely earning their heavenly wings. Thanks so much Andrea for sharing this with us. It has made my night. I Just want to reach in that picture and grab Caylee and give her lot’s of hugs and kisses.

    In the pic look behind Linda Burdick way in the back, that has got to be Cindy or so it looks like her to me.

      No, not her. Cindy and George were assigned seats behind the prosecution. Poetic justice, imo.

    Of course Cindy is not sitting on Caylee’s teams side as she never does. I hope Cindy and George both see this picture. Their tiny grandbaby sits with none of her family on her team. Now that is SAD~~ Poor Caylee, all that baby has is just her team and us.

      It is sad that that precious baby girl has no one from her own family saying that she was important. Where is Rick Plesea? Where is Great-Grandma? C’mon! The child lived way too short of a life-has it not affected anyone’s heart in that dysfunctional family? Is she not worth the sacrifice of time and money? Oh, that’s what hurts mew more than anything!

        sorry for the typo~kinda hard to see straight when you find yourself with tears welling up because you see a precious life treated as though it meant nothing. Sign of the times I guess…abortion has made the atmosphere of life deem some as precious, and others aren’t.

    Casey should be made to look at this picture every day of her rotten life.

    Honestly, I think the photo is creepy, because Caylee has a gleeful smile on her face. I think they should have used one one with a more serene expression. But you know what? I think she’s actually sitting with her mother.

    Hi Sophie as a little innocent two and a half year old i guess your right she would be sitting with her mother because she wouldn’t know better or understand that her mother would kill her, but not today, for me today Caylee is sitting on her Angel justice team, as Caylee would also if she could understand, want to thank Linda, Jeff and Frank for fighting for her rights to not be killed and thrown away like garbage in the woods by the one person that was suppose to keep her safe and loved..

    Hi Sherry, thanks for telling me it was not cindy in the pic. haha, i didn’t know their seats were assigned behind prosecution. Now that is poetic justice. Yea, where is rick pleasea and Shirley ? Shirley may not be up to it since she is elderly and her husband is in a nursing home but Rick i wonder why he is not there. hmmm. I know what you mean about tears welling up when you see Caylee, i am the same way. Such a beautiful wonderful little girl that should be here enjoying her mama doll, and her playhouse. I have no idea why we have so many evil people in this world and why any hurt helpless innocent children. Our prisons are overflowing. our world is becoming a sad world and very dangerous.

    Hi Sherry, yes definitely Laurali loves Caylee dearly. She is a sweet person and i like her very much. I have chatted on line with her at times. There are sooooooooooo many of us bloggers’ that love Caylee as how could anyone not that has a heart. We all surround Caylee with love for the one who will not, ” her mother.”

      We all love Caylee~
      Wuld there be so many of Caylee’s friennds with blogs? There are uncountable voices for her justice in the blogosphere, eh?

      I’m a bit meloncholy because its so hard for me to see a picture of Caylee and not wish she were my baby….
      Those with children, no matter the age, hurt for Caylee because you know what itr’s like to have a child her age-you reminesce(sp) abouit your own babies. For us who have been deprived of such blessings-its like we lost a child that we feel God could have given us!

      It hurts ~
      It really hurts as we try to believe that God knows best~
      (even God understands even if we can’t figurwe Him out)

        Ahhh Sherry, i am so sorry. i didn’t know and i sure wish you could have had Caylee to love and raise. What a great mom and home she would have had. It always puzzles me as to why some really good people can’t seem to have a baby and then a lot of bad people can have one right after the other. I know i am not suppose to questiion but it get’s hard at times not to at least ponder it

        That evil Casey does one good thing in her screw up life of which that was Caylee and what does she do? She kills her. George and Cindy will never get over the loss of Caylee. Should casey ever be freed i wonder how that would go with her living with them now. They have to know what she has done.

        It doesn’t make sense to me, knight owl, why God would let there be unfit moms and dads when there are an abundance of good moms and dads~
        I’m guessing faith is about believing in Him despite injusrtice done in His sight……..Oh, Giod help me in this!

    Out of all the pics I’ve seen, since the very beginning when little Caylee’s face was shown to the world… This IS the BEST picture of it all!

    This should hang, draped right in front of the State’s counsel table!

    What a pleasant photo to gaze at – Given the circumstances!

    It’s speaks in a way, that one could ALMOST SEE her sitting there, in between
    her THREE GREATEST HEROs!

    Her (GREAT BIG) little voice, being HEARD and then spoken by three individuals, who took this child under their wings, and made her become THEIRS:

    * Theirs to protect, as she was not protected in a the manner that she should have been, while living in the dysfunction of the Anthony family!

    * Theirs to find, and secure “TRUE JUSTICE” for a little angel, who did NOT deserve to die in the manner in which she did.

    * Theirs to ensure, that WHOEVER ? (Inmate Anthony, Caylee’s very own MOTHER) perpetuated this horrific crime, on this precious INNOCENT child, gets JUDGED and SENTENCED accordingly –

    * Theirs to have, to at long last set free, having Caylee come to be in a place, where she can finally REST IN ETERNAL PEACE!

    * Theirs to gently allow, after all these years, to FLY HOME!

    FLY HOME BABY GIRL – FLY HOME!

      Such beautiful comments, CptKD. You have a lovely way with words… and I agree, the photo says it all and it would be so nice if it were positioned on the State’s table… though it couldn’t be conspicuous…. i hope the attorney’s are able to see this – I think they’d like it. :)

        I DO hope – That in some way, some how….
        The State Attorneys have had SOMEONE
        come to them with a copy of this picture ….

        It says so much, and tugs at the heart-strings!

        I hope they know, and recognize, just how
        much they’ve come to mean to so many of us!

        They most definately are deserving of the
        highest respect and recognition…

        And I agree – I think they’d like it too….

        Maybe even get a ‘framed’ copy, to keep some-
        where special….

    I do hope you’ll consider emailing this to the States Attorney’s….They would probably find it to be such an encouragement! It could be a sweet reminder of their sole focus in the face of continued under-handed, sleazy tactics from opposing counsel.. (I think Jeff has a Facebook page, maybe it could be tagged to his page…just a thought, it’s lovely…)

    Now I am officially pissed! Cindy lied in court today and proved once again obstruction. Can you say Lie by omission? When all this waqs coming down and she did not talk to LE about the computer. I am gonna go thru her interviews and depos because I don’t ever rember her doing searches. I hope the gloves come off of LDB and JA to impeach the crap out of Cindy. They have plenty of info to do it with. I was fooled one last time that Cindy would tell the truth……so what’s next….is she going to say that George did molest Casey? Think about it…..if she were to do that George would get charged and Casey might get off! Baez may have been right when he said “something is wrong” but it meant the whole family. I can’t wait for rebutal when the prosecution tears Cindy a new one!!!!!!!!!!

      I believe it was the 2009 State depo where she said that she searched for chlorophyl. It was in a late July LE interview where she said the stain in the trunk was there when they bought the car, IIRC. This was after George said in his LE interview he saw a basketball sized stain.

      It was tweeted that Jeff Ashton left the courtroom after Cindy’s testimony and didn’t come back. I was watching him and before he left he was somewhat smiling as he was checking his cell phone. I’ll make a guess that he has investigators getting all the info needed to impeach Cindy.

      Funny thing is, the investigation has not been closed just yet and I believe it is because of George and Cindy Anthony. Sure, the word is that there will be no investigation of the grandparents because it will look bad but I don’t believe that just yet.

      So very sad that Cindy has shown contempt for her grandbaby, little, precious Caylee. :cry:

      Reply
      • Jun 23 2011

        Hey Sherry… Yes, that was the most sinful point about her testimony today – all of a sudden she forgot about Caylee. I saw Ashton leave, too! They won’t let Cindy Anthony do anything to undermine their case. And, I am sure the jury saw how foolish an idea it is to say anyone can remember a google search from three years ago!
        It’s beyond absurd.

    • Jun 23 2011

      Hi Damagedpets – Yes, Cindy did lie, but I don’t believe there is any harm done because no one will believe it. How in the world can she say now, in 2011, the date, time, and subject matter of what searched for in March of 2008? Granted, she said “Chlorophyll” was the object of her search…. and maybe that part is true, but I don’t for a minute believe she was home doing that during the day, especially since her work records have here at work.
      It was completely unbelievable, and she was not the sympathetic Cindy we’d seen earlier – this was the Cindy we’ve known from the start – ready to deceive at every opportunity.
      As Sherry said, an investigation can ensue that will impeach her comments so fast her head will spin.
      Could the defense be backing off of their “theory” now in favor of attacking the state’s case? If so, they’re getting no where!

      We can’t worry – the defense still had a bad day!

        Andrea, I hope the jury sees it like you did. I still think that in rebuttal the state will have to show the dark side of Cindy & George in order for the jury to understand what they are capable of doing. Instead of the distraught heart broken Cindy like we saw in trial earlier, today she had that look about her when she gave her depo to Morgan & Morgan. A defiant, I know what I’m doing and I’m smarter than you look. The state should also bring out the interviews with Baez when he claims they are looking for a the nanny and a live Caylee. I am really starting to believe this whole plan was hatched when Casey was writing letters in jail. There had been enough time that past where she was talking to shrinks and the defense was trying to figure out how to defend her. The claim is she told only two other people, Jesse and Tony, about Lee trying to touch her but nothing to no one about her father. To this day I think she told Jesse and Tony as a way to manipulate them through sympathy. She did not tell the people that she knew the longest but had no problem relating to an inmate! It’s hard to take that the trial is under way and Cindy still thinks she can manipulate the court and the attorneys. I found it telling how much she can remember and when the questions get tougher, she can’t recall.

        PS: If you Google Chlorophil (wrong spelling) this is what comes up
        Showing results for chlorophyll. Search instead for chlorophil.

        As you can see Chloroform does not come up nor does “How to make Chloroform. There is one other thing that does not come up on the computer……Type Cindy Anthony=Lying to LE, perjury, obstruction of justice and last but not least=A bad Person…….but it should…………….

  27. Jun 23 2011

    I have to laugh because when Cindy said that her computer got away from her it reminded me of the guy found guilty of child sex abuse blaming his cat for downloading all of the oodles of kiddie porn on his computer.

    Like Pat Brown said on the Cop Doc Show-Cindy lied and the jury knows it and they will believe it was to deflect them from believing Casey used chloroform on her child.

    Very good show!

    Are Casey Anthony’s tears real? Is the accused Caylee killer in love with her attorney Jose Baez? And just why are we so fascinated by the trial that has ratings soaring. Famed criminal profiler Pat Brown answers those questions and more with police expert former police chief Dr. Richard Weinblatt, The Cop Doc, tonight. The veteran of thousands of national TV interviews and author of The Profiler: My Life Hunting Serial Killers and Psychopaths, Pat Brown gives her insight into the mind behind the face that has dominated the ratings in the Casey Anthony Trial taking place here in Orlando, FL.

      Sherry, I have followed this case since the very beginning. In the last 2 1/2 years there have been about 20 blogs with 4-10 people that discussed the case. It was not until 8 weeks ago that national media blew this out of the water to create viewers yet I had people that told me that because it was on Nancy Grace (sigh), everyone on the face of the planet knew about it. Sorry but watching Nancy Grace and quoting her like gospel is like trying to do a term paper using Wikipedia…….you lose every time.

    So after today it seems that George and Cindy were meeting with the state about testimony and then via a back door were telling the defense what was going on. What stellar individuals. According to Lee he would not meet with the state but ended up meeting with the defense, Great! So no comes, and it’s not to late, to impeach the crap out of George, Cindy and Lee. The state tried playing nice but nice guys finish last and they started to see that yesterday. Over the next week, when and where possible, the state will make the Anthony’s much more important than they already are.

    After this trial is over and regardless what happens, I hope all will join a campaign online , Craigslist and other media sources to implore anyone not to buy a book written by or for the Anthony’s. It is reported that Cindy sits in the back of the court taking notes for a reported 2 million dollar book deal. Caylee Anthony was tried, sentenced and put to death. Her right to grow up and have a good life was taken from her. So that means that her grandparents, strange attorneys and journalists get a chance at money or the brass ring she was not entitled to? I call Bullshit!

    Kudos to the one who made up this photo. But too bad the wrong person is on the other side of the table and true justice will most likely not be served if her mother is convicted.

    We are watching is corruption at its best unfolding right before our eyes, and that IMO is scary and a slap in Caylee’s face. IMO.
