Bio and Links
I have worked on my Family Genealogy for about 25 years and have been to many many cemeteries through the years. My Mother and I put out flowers on many graves and liked to remember those that had "gone to Glory". Now that she is gone, I've taken it upon myself to follow in her footsteps by keeping the memories of our loved ones alive. I grew up in Tyler, TX and now live in Rockwall, TX. I will try to start taking pictures of the graves that I go to and add to this site.
I am not at all interested in numbers or seeing if I can get more graves than someone else - that is ridiculous! How could anyone do this to be competitive?
I am really only interested in my relatives, friends, and classmates, and their family connections - not just to reach a high number of graves.
If I make a suggestion or ask for a transfer it is someone I am connected to or related to and want to add information or correct information. I will do the same for you. Thank you for your help.

RE: #133333350 Ken Carrell
Thank you, I would really like you doing this. It is really hard losing a child but I knew God as my savor and He made it possible for me to get through Ken's death. It is really assuring to know Ken is in Heaven and being able to walk.
Thank you, Jane Carrell

concerning a grave
You left a note on my son's grave info.our last name isn't McKinzie, we live in McKenzie, Tn. Our last names are Carrell. Strangely enough I see you are from Tyler, Tx. Your name was on my brother-in-laws obituary page. Wondering if you knew him personally (Joe Thomas Carrell, Joe was minister of Music at Hyde Park Baptist Church years ago. My husband Kenny was Joe's brother. The grave notice that you sent your request to is our son Ken. If you find the time I would like to hear from you.
Thank you,
Jane Carrell

It was a memorial attributed to you for Nora Alice Helm Tinkel b Oct 6 1884 d Aug 9 1979.

I was needing to know if you had a source for the death dates for her parents William Thomas Helm and Josephine Campbell Helm
