Bio and Links
Bio Photo I discovered Find a Grave by accident soon after the death of our precious daughter, Marjorie. She was my first entry. I have added family members, friends, and others that I have no connection with but simply wanted to add them on these pages. I will have more of my family entered in the future. My wife and I are retired and we love it! I love riding the back-roads on my Harley and can't seem to ride past an old cemetery.....I love walking through them and find peace and quiet in them. Thanks so much to everyone that has placed notes, tokens, and have sponsored my memorials. God bless you all.

RE: ~HAPPY 4th of JULY ~ GOD BLESS AMERICA~
To My Dear Friend Tom, On Independence Day,


THANK YOU SO MUCH for your wonderful message of

patriotism and support! Please keep Bill in

your prayers: he is fine, but gets grumpy at

being cooped up, inside the hospital.

Today was especially difficult, as he is such an

outdoorsy guy and today is the first gorgeous day

in ages...and July 4th! He wanted to mow the

lawn and have a BBQ and watch fireworks!


I pray you've been having FUN on your Harley

today, with (OF COURSE) the American flag!


GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ALL THOSE WHO KEEP IT FREE

AND SAFE...THANKS TO THOSE WHO GAVE ALL!


(I'm sure you noticed...there is an article on

the front page of THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR about

a man, I think from Indy (I have not read the

whole article yet) who enlisted in the navy...

only ONE MONTH LATER, he was dead, as he was on

the USS INDIANAPOLIS. His son and daughter are

honoring him. Also, a story of a man disfigured

in the Iraqi War, who has found a new life.


My husband is my life, so I must go back to him...

I'm picking up a salad for him and one for me, at

Steak & Shake. NO MORE JUNK!


We'll be watching A CAPITOL FOURTH, on PBS,

which just started. Maybe, you are, also?


SEE YA LATER, ALLIGATOR! HAPPY JULY 4th! ANNE

And also...
I wanted to thank you so much for your service. My dad was in the Air Force too.
It means so much to have people like you who are so full of patriotism for this country...it really makes me proud and thankful to be an American.
Thank you for keeping this country free...I salute you today.

RE: Thank You!
Thank you so much. One of the reasons why I joined findagrave was to make a memorial for him...he really did have his whole life ahead of him and he was so close to coming home. He actually died because he was on a bridge that was set on fire; he died trying to save others who were trapped.
I agree. It was very much a war and a brutal one, too. My grandfather remembers his uncle Dick's funeral (he was, oh, ten at the time). He didn't fully grasp what was going on but he remembers how it was all very dark and sad. I grew up seeing his portrait in my grandparents house and they would always tell me "that's your brave great grand uncle Dick."
Anyway, thank you SO MUCH for visiting him; it really put a smile on my face. Happy Fourth of July. :)
I visited your daughter, by the way. She was lovely.

Thank You!
Hi!
I just wanted to thank you for the kind note that you left on my great grand uncle Dick's memorial (Pvt. Richard Lamar Fisher). It really means a lot to me to know that he's remembered and appreciated.
