I love to bowhunt for whitetail deer,shoot 3-D targets, play golf, work around my house and spend time with my husband. I enjoy going to old cemetaries and looking at the graves and wondering what type of person those that have passed on were. I am disabled due to end stage renal disease, and am now on the transplant list! I am patiently waiting and hoping for a new kidney so my life can get back to some type of "normal". For the time being I do PD home diaylsis, clean lots of house and try to vist as many old cemeteries as time permits.
UPDATE!!! I received the gift of life from an annomomous donor. On July 16, 2013 I had my kidney transplant at Baptist Hospital, Little Rock, AR.
Everyone, no matter what their station in life was, deserves to be remembered. If I've memorilized a loved one of yours, a close friend, or someone you knew, and you'd like to manage their memorial, just let me know! I never have a problem with transfering to anyone. Just make sure to include your FAG number so I can get them over to you!)
RE: Regarding the cemetery in my back yard I don't know anything about the cemetery , my husband and I found it riding 4 wheelers on the property, we were told from someone at one time about grave robbers were caught back there and were run out , there is a grave out there that is very deep and the length of a casket but nothing inside but bunches of fallen leaves, lots of the markers are broken and scattered everywhere, some are unmarked, I went out with a yard rake and tried to see what all was under the fallen leaves, then decided to go back and take pics to put on find a grave, my husband said he has a plat that shows it use to be a gravel road leading back their probably back in the day, I would love for someone to see about restoring this old cemetery, loggers has logged out there but left the cemetery and cut around it, this cemetery is on Google map that's how I found the name of it which the name matches a little church that sits right on 270 just less than a mile from me and a few tend the little church which has a bigger cemetery with same name across the street. If you would like to email feel free at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you I live in Lubbock Texas and joined Find A Grave a few years ago. I have searched and searched for J.C. and Vivienne Bean and their son David ever since. Vivienne was my Mother's best friend and J.C. was my Dad's best friend when they lived in Lubbock. They all belonged to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church here in Lubbock. I had been searching for them in Pottsboro, Texas the last known place of residence. I could not imagine that they did not have a Find A Grave memorial, so kept searching ever so often.
One day I did a google search and it brought up one of Vivienne's brother's obituarys and a wealth of information stating they were buried in Arkansas. That was all I needed to find their beautiful memorial created by you.
Decendents of John Franklin Jeter Hello Karen, I am a helping a friend create her family tree. Thus far, I've gotten this far on the decendents of John Franklin Jeeter (1887-1956) from Vernon Parish, Louisiana. http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Jeter-Descendants-282
You and my friend, Linda, are second cousins 1x removed. Your grandmother, Mary Emily Jeter Hagan,
She would like very much to meet her cousins from the Jeeter line - at least online due to the physical distance. Would you be amenable to the idea of collaborating on your shared ancestral history and also making contact? She has asked that I not post her email address online in a public forum. So, if you would be kind enough to send a note to me at email@example.com I will be more than happy to send a message to each of you with the other's contact info.
Before I sign off, may I congratulate you on a successful organ transplant and offer prayers for your continued recovery.
Deborah Simpson Cunningham Thanks for posting a picture of my Mom's headstone. I can say I have her ashes in my house. She was an organ and tissue donor. Let's just say she was only able to donate her eyes, skins and bones..
