Bio Photo Cancer took at very good friend of mine (Tommy)just a couple weeks after being diagnosed with cancer, please visit his FAG Memorial #146690248.

It really makes me sad to see a Find A Grave memorial without a single flower on it. If we would all take the time and leave a flower when we create a Find A Grave Memorial for someone then that problem with take care of itself for new memorials. I try to look everyday and flower any memorials I find without one. Lets all put out a little extra effort and spend a little time every week to flower someone that does not have visitors. Just one flower/token is better than no flower/token. : )

A Very Special Thank You to Shirleen! She has spent many hours researching my grandmothers side of the family and has provided me with very detailed information. She has had to have spent many many hours to have given me so much information. I am beyond thrilled to have so much info.

A Very Special Thank You to my FAG friends Joyce for adding a musical link of "Last Date" to my father-in-laws FAG page, and to Patty Valentino, Beverly Vaughn and Sue (Daddy's Girl) for sponsoring family members pages and their many visits. Also a very special "Thank You" to them and everyone else that goes the extra step to leave my parents a token on my grandparents FAG page. Your kindness does not go unnoticed. And I must add that Patty leaves some of the most beautiful tokens and sweetest notes.


My intentions are not to disrespect anyone living or deceased. Myself, like most people on FAG add information for personal reasons, genealogy purposes, and to preserve our past for future generations. I document your loved ones with respect, but if you want one removed or would like me to transfer memorial ownership to you, in order to add more information, please let me know, I will be happy to honor your request. My hope is to connect family with family and provide new information.


Sometimes there are mistakes in the cemetery records that we document, sometimes we make a typo mistake. It happens! I will correct my mistakes if you will let me know. FAG is like a big puzzle that we all work on together. If you do your part, the puzzle starts fitting together


I started on Find A Grave on a mission to find out information on my Grandmother(Dollie Coffer Apple)and her family, I am at the same place now that I started, but hopefully that will change one day. Along the way I hope to help create a historical recording of those who have passed, especially for those with nothing but their name written on a piece of paper somewhere noting their final resting place. Hopefully my effort will help with not letting them be lost forever.

THANK YOU to all of you for your many kind visits and messages. I so very much appreciate our wonderful family here at Find-a-Grave and every visit and token left at my family FAG sites! I would like to say very special "Thank You" to Patty Valentino. Patty makes many many visits to my family members and leaves some of the sweetest notes. It really makes my day to see she has made visits to family members.

Remember me as you pass by,
As you are so was I.
As I am you soon will be.
Prepare in Life for Eternity.


If you come across an Angel..

Every day, in the world around us, real-life angels are doing the things they do... and bringing more smiles to the world around them.

Real-life angels build bridges instead of walls. They don't play hide-and-seek with the truth, and they don't have hidden agendas. They tend to be the only ones who understand what you're going through. if they sense that you're hurting, they do whatever they can to help you.

Real-life angels understand difficulties and always give the benefit of the doubt. They don't hold others up to the standards they can't live by themselves. Real-life angels are what "inner beauty" is all about.

Real-life angels don't hold things against you; the only thing they hold... is you. They take your hand in theirs when you could use a little reassurance. They walk beside you when you could do with a little guidance and direction in your life. And they support you in your attempts
to do what is right.

Real-life angels multiply your smiles and add to your integrity. They make you feel like, "Hey, I really am somebody who matters." Then they quietly prove to you how beautiful and true that feeling really is.

If you come across an angel like this, you are one of the luckiest people of all.

If someone in your life is wonderfully like an angel to you, it's important to let them know. It's the nicest compliment you could ever give... in all the days of your life and in all the years that you live.
- Douglas Pagels

Time may hide our sadness like a smile can hide a tear, but memories last forever no matter how many years
When the tears start falling and you dont know what to do, Think of all the tender moments your Angel spent with you

You are welcome Mary, and I thank you for the tokens you have left my family. I was so surprised to see that you had left an Angel Day visit for my brother Doug. Sad times this week remembering all the events that had taken place a year ago.. Still doesn't seem real, but it is ... We will never forget them.. We keep them alive in our memories and heart..//your friend - Julie

RE: Samuel
Yes, Mary, you could transfer him to me if you'd like, and any others connected to him. I know my mom was one of yours, too - Emalene Beatrice (Hambrick) Dart.
Thank you!

Dear Mary Thank you so very much for the flower left for my son Ray for his birthday. It means so much. And I went into the memorial number you had that needed flowers and it did not put in the first 1 and that poor lady had not one flower. She does now.

RE: Flowers
Hi Mary! The flowers were here when we moved in last fall, and so even though they didn't. Look this hardy, that tells you that they bloom pretty much round year in this climate...l can't. See them too well even in person now, everything kind of is a faded yellow like color blind people experience...but l do know that some are Baptists and the kind of puff like ones might be a black knight mix. I sure do miss being able to see the colors! Hope that helps, and l have had Baptists before that grew taller than Gannon, and he is six foot, so that would be a dramatic effect in a garden. The photo was taken over the fourth of July holiday, so you are seeing them mid summer, btw. Take care and stay in touch - hugs, Rhonda and Gannon Blue
