Bio and Links
I live in Grand Blanc, MI. Found this site by accident. I worked for years at a local cemetery and at a local funeral home now I work in the office at Michigan Battery Equipment Co. Find all of this fascinating. Hope to find more time to input data. I think this is great way to spend extra time (when I retire, if ever).

RE: Sweet family
Thanks again, always nice to learn about a family's history. The Cvetic brothers worked in the copper mines in Calumet MI. After my grandpa was hurt in a mine cave-in, my grandma made him move to the Chicago area where he worked for many years as a chauffeur for the Amer Express Delivery Co. I just turned 67, am retired and enjoying it.

PS-Although, not related to my Sweet family, here's a website about a Herb & Dee Sweet you might find interesting. I visited their "Acorn Acres Country Store" awhile ago, and when I went to pay, they saw that we shared the same last name and showed me a 200~300 page book loaded with their family bios. Maybe you are related to them somehow.

Kind regards to you and your family. Jim

Sweet Family
Thanks for the info about your Joseph & Monica Sweet. I doubt that we are related. My Grandfather, Joseph, and his sibs; John, Matt, and Ann (Gasparovich) lived in Calumet MI after coming from Lukovdol, Croatia (1890's). Their last name was Cvetic, and their parents were Pavao Cvetic + Mara (Grguric). At various times they used Cvetich, Svetich, Svetish, Swetich, Swetish, and who knows what else. My grandfather legally his name, in 1920's Chicago, to Sweet. Have a Happy New Year and stay well. Jim

Thanks for adding your flower to my grandma's Find A Grave plot, Mary Getzen Sweet, memorial# 68595397. That was very nice of you. You did it in 2012, but I didn't notice until today. Are you in some way related to my family? Please check my Find A Grave bio. I list several family names that am related to. Jim Sweet 12-31-2013

RE: fournier photos?
No I didn't remove any photo's all I see that I put on Grandma and Grandpa's page was the two of them sitting together on their 50th Anniv.

Just wanted to say hello!
Have a new job and working a lot, and don't get to come her much anymore. Since mom passed, I'm no longer a caregiver and have to build my savings back up. Just wanted to say hello and have a wonderful 2013.
