I was wondering if you would delete the picture you added for my dad? His memorial number is
38886954. The photo you added is next to the last one on the photo row. I appreciate you adding it, but I have the same photo and I don't need two of the same one. This will allow me to add even more photos of him.

Thank you so much.

Have a great Labor Day,

RE: Timothy Purnell
Hi Carolyn, Thanks for the info. Ive had a few friends of ours asking to keep them informed about him. Thats why i have him on my page for anyone who came by my page would see and visit him. That way even though he didnt have a service or memorial that day, he still had friends thinking of him and leaving flowers the day he was buried. A couple others had him on their page too. One friend was wondering if they figured out his death date to add to his memorial and also a couple of them asked if there was a obit. I wasnt sure cause i think the family does the obit.
I seen you had been sick. I pray you are feeling better soon.
Thanks again.

Hugs, Missie

RE: Hello...
So sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, but I had been missing you & wanted to check in. That must be an ordeal with moving also. I would like to move to a more convenient neighborhood, but even when you have movers that [do all the work], it is still a tiring situation. May you feel better soon. I just got over [something], sore throat bad, for about 11 days. Took so much medicine it was making me sick. But I did live thru it grudgingly. I wish you luck in your new home & I know it will take much adjusting.

If I neglected to wish you a "happy Easter", I'm doing it now, belatedly. Hope your day was nice.
Best regards Carolyn & have a nice evening.

BTW Thanks for your message, nice hearing from you.

RE: Timothy Purnell
Hi Carolyn, Thank you for telling me. I appreciate it. Im glad someone told you. He emailed me now and then too and i will miss him. He had asked me to pray for his death also. I remember him saying when hes gone, his friends wont know for a while because no friends lived nearby. Im glad someone had your email and told you. He was a sweet friend and i'll miss him too. Such sad news. :(
Thanks again and you take care too.

Hugs, Missie

Was his father's last name Cummins or LaFollette?

A Most Special Friend
You are truly the rarest of treasures! I very much appreciated your outstanding kindness in remembering my father's birthday on July 17.

May God bless you!

Your Magnificent Soul
True poets find rare magic and meaning as well as soulful expression in choice words. And your wonderfully endearing gift has the power of all these qualities. But to me, your friend and brother, some of the most magical words of all are ... 'Carolyn' and 'Darlene'.

I have taken great solace at your marvelous, deeply touching praises of my parents and modest self and will remember you forever!

A Truly Very Important Person
Dear Darlene!

You are one of the kindest and therefore most precious people in the world! I appreciated your caring birthday wishes as well as the marvelous attention to my parent's memorials tremendously!

Easter this year was the coldest in 50 years in Great Britain (up to 16 feet of snow fell in Scotland) and of course now the last of my family has gone I did not celebrate it.

I hope the best sister and friend any one could possess has very many deservedly happy moments with the warmer joy of lasting contentment ...

May God bless you!

Hello Darlene. I sent you an email.

I hope all is well with you and yours.

Love from your Sister In Christ, Darlene

Thank you
Thank you Darlene from the bottom of my heart for visiting all my memorials. Each and every one of my memorials are precious to me especially my son. Not only do you take hours looking for my family's history and re-do old pictures but your visits are precious to me. I wish I can do more for you.

Have a Great Night. It's suppose to be Spring but Winter refuses to leave us and we're getting snow flurries again!!

Love & Hugs

I had Feb 18th tucked in my mind to token your precious Dad on his Angel Day. And I still missed it. I just tokened him today. I'm so sorry!! I have so much on my mind these days and nothing stays in my head for long. March is approaching and that month is a disaster to my family. I have so many deaths and birthdays in March I had to put the list on my daughter's home page. I don't have the room. I got your e-mail but haven't had time to fully let it sink in.

Hoping you are well these days and your family. I love your bio picture.

I found more pictures
I'm finally after 4 long years after mom's death to be able to sit down and sort through boxes and boxes of my parents stuff. I found 2 more rare pictures of my dad's side of them as little kids. I have the new pictures on Andrew, Albert, Janie and Ray's memorials. I also found out from my dad's birth cert. that Andrew was a farmer. Listed his occupation as farming. I don't know why it has his age listed as 55 where he was clearly 59 when my dad was born. Andrew was born in 1858 and its on his stone. In 1917, he would be 59 in Oct 1917 when dad was born. Andrew was born Aug 1858. They have Janie as 20 which is right. I found another rare picture of my mom's side too. I had 4 complaints about Albert (throught the edit tab) to remove him since he is a burial unknown. So I just put down creamation. I've been calling everywhere in Va and nobody has no info on him. There is one place I thought he would be....Winchester National Cemetery which holds the veterans but they haven't taken in any new interments since 1969 so that is out.

How have you been these days?
