To live in the hearts of others, is to live forever!

My name is Sharon and I live in Idaho. I am married and have one son. Both of our dogs died last year and that left us pet-less. For various reasons, our decision has been to not get any other pets at this time, except fish
At the time of my updating this bio, August, 2014, I am 50 years old and the picture of me is a couple of years old.
Yes, I am a Christian...Does that mean I am perfect and will never make a mistake? It does not, I make plenty of them and will continue to do so because I am also human.
I am passionate about spreading the word about child abuse prevention. I take it very seriously. Nothing sickens me more than the death of a child due to abuse. If you don't want them, don't have them. If you have them and don't want them...don't kill them, find them a good home with family or friends or even foster parents. Children matter, children are important! LEAVE THEM ALONE!

Unfortuantely, for the first time ever since becoming a Find A Grave member, I have a rant:
In August of 2014, I was contacted by someone who didn't like that I had left a flower on a memorial they said they were working on during the time I left the flower. I had no way of knowing this person was still working on the memorial and would like to make it clear that I would NEVER intentionally do anything to upset another Find A Grave member.
I am not here to be in control of others, I am here to be in control of ME. As for what is acceptable, Find A Grave states that quite nicely in their "guidelines" section and probably doesn't need their members telling other members they are "doing it wrong", in a rude way. I have made suggestions when I see a duplicate or if I notice something is out of order like a date, but that is as far as I have gone and that's not rude, that's just helping someone and I have been thanked many times for that.
Find A Grave enables me to memorialize people in a way that I had never known before. I have made mistakes and Find A Grave has POLITELY corrected me along the way, I don't mind that, we ALL make mistakes, even those who believe they are incapable of making mistakes and want to rule the online world. There is NEVER a reason to be rude or out of line when a simple, POLITE e-mail or note will do.
I'm Just sayin...
I personally LOVE Find A Grave. It has allowed me to be in contact with family members that I had no way of finding before I added memorials that they had viewed and then contacted me about.
I have been a member for a short time compared to some people I have seen but I hope that others enjoy Find A Grave as much as I do and they don't try to ruin the experience for others the way I have seen in that one message. None of us are getting out alive, we all put our pants on one leg at a time. We're all the same in the eyes of God and THAT is what matters.
Please enjoy your experience on Find A Grave, what a great opportunity, privilege and honor we have all been given to memorialize our loved ones, friends, strangers and in some cases I have seen, even our beloved pets. Let's all help to make it a positive experience for others, whenever we can!
No one is too big to be courteous, but some are too little

Angel, Your profile and all that followed was so very Gracious and uplifting. I too have had some not so nice complaints. Been doing findagrave for sometime and it is so very nice to have been able to read your profile and rant. Loved it.
Keep doing what you do. "God Bless Us, Everyone."

Sorry that I havn't replied before. I can find nothing further about these children.
They had such short sad lives.

The memorial #84816088 you said was a duplicate to my memorial #135604429 does not exist. Are you sure you got the right #.
|asiantle||RE: Jerald Rooms|
Not a problem. Thank you so much!

Just wanted to tell you that I love your profile :-) I could not have worded it better no matter how hard I tried
I have encountered many disrespectful members on Find A Grave and it's sad but I must say there are more kind, generous and friendly members than there are disrespectful ones and that's why I'm still a member - because of members like you that know how to treat others with the same respect they want to be treated with.

You were doing a good thing and keep up the good that you do. Always. Lisa
|for those that remain||your rant|
Just wanted to thank you for your rant. Never did I think when I join this sight that I would end up feeling like a piece of #### because I left a flower or asked for a picture of someone's loved ones. I thought that's what findagrave was all about but I learned early to tread lightly. Again thanks for saying what I've kept silent about.
I am a total stranger. I am bored and tired of hitting my head on the wall with my current puzzle, so I wandered a bit and I found your bio.
FULL ON I agree with you over child abuse. My hubby's nephew is our son. His mother was buried the day before his first birthday and life was hell for him after that. His bio father is in prison for that and I have attended every parole hearing to KEEP HIM.
Next agreement. My Grampa was amazing but he died early and Grandmother was a tyrant and lied to me when I asked questions about family. Generally denying everything that made Grampa the man he was. I have met cousins on Find a Grave that come from both of his Great Grandfathers. and 1 cousin from my Grandmothers Great great Grandparents.I am an odd ball but if I go deep enough into my roots, I find I am not the only one.
Lastly. Full on agree with you on communication. I use and I see nothing wrong with Please and Thank you. Respect, Courtesy, Kindness what is wrong with that.
But I grew up ghetto. You bring rude to my party, I will educate you.
As Grampa said; Kill them with Kindness.
Some people do not come back. Good riddance.
Some people do not even realize how toxic they sound.
sorry, I am slinking away now. That wall is giving me a head ache but I will leave you alone. thank you.
Just one more thing -- I have replaced one of his former photos with the one that came through Mountain Home, if you want to pass that on.

I have done as you asked -- the Mtn. Home obituary is now first. What a good friend you are!
