Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 2006 I googled my mother's name and found her on Find a Grave--this was a joyful day for me. Of course, I had to find everyone else! It took awhile after joining (initially to place 'flowers' on their memorials) before really understanding enough to make memorials myself. This I began in 2011, starting with my darling husband. Was involved as a bereavement facilitator for my church (right after Ken's death) - am very aware of the needs of the grieving to tribute their loved ones. Find a Grave is a wonderful place to do just that. Am also quite experienced in the pain which insensitive/unthinking people can inflict. (Am presently not actively facilitating--although I still find myself helping with grief issues any where I happen to be.)

My direct family lines are through Fonnesbeck, Duval, Gerbet, and Bissegger families.

My husband's direct family lines are Pitcher, Jorgensen, Plowman, and Barrett.

And many, many more before!

However, I am fascinated by all.

Have found several loved ones and friends through findagrave and am thoroughly hooked on helping to make all of our searches more satisfying, productive, educational and just plain fun!

RE: memorial # 110261828
I am the Syracuse Cemetery Sexton and was just notified that the family of Kerry M Shimada will be placing his urn in the Syracuse Cemetery. Would you please edit the cemetery information on this. If you would like to transfer this to me that would be fine as well since his wife and family will eventually be in the same cemetery. My Find-a-grave # is 47499363.

RE: Re Patrick Richard Sayles
Thank you Pat. I appreciate it. My mother tried unsuccessfully several times in her life to try to find her birth family. She had no success. It never really mattered to me since my relationship with my grandmother (thru adoption of course) was ideal. But since my mother's passing it has come on to my radar (so to speak). Whatever outcome I do appreciate your reply and sympathy.
Thank You....Bill Herd

Re Patrick Richard Sayles
Hello Pat...My name is William Herd. My mother was Linda Woods, born Virginia Lee (Leigh?) Sayles in Salt Lake City on 7 March 1947. In or around 1949 she was adopted by Perry and Dorothy Woods of Los Angeles. I know this is a touchy question, but I wonder if you have any information re this or could pass my message on to anyone who may care to see it. I can be reached at by you or any else. Thank you. (I should mention my mother passed away in 2014)

Kelleher twins #158947663
Hi, Pat! I came across your memorial for the Kelleher twins in Ogden City Cemetery. Since the site rules ask that we create individual memorials for each child in situations like this, I created an additional, which I transferred to you. Unfortunately, I forgot to link the two of them first! I'm sorry, I meant to do that! If you'd like, I can write down the code for doing that, and you can include it in the bio.

Let me know!

The little child George Fonnesbeck now has his tombstone photo. Just wanted to say Hi to you. I've never stumbled into you before.

RE: Felt question

I must have sent my message to the wrong person. Sorry for the trouble. I am working with a cousin that is directly with this family.
