Please take a moment to stop by and visit my Dad, he died June 13, 2013 and I miss him terribly.
Thank you so much to everyone who leaves flowers for Dad! It means a lot to me to know he's remembered.
If you have a few moments, please feel free to visit some of my family, they're all very dear to me!
Grandma and Grandpa Gantley, I can't believe they've been gone so long. Aunt Eileen, too, who was total awesomesauce. Jeff was married to my cousin, he was always a lot of fun and we were shocked when he left us so suddenly.
Sissy was my sweetheart's sister, she left her family far too soon. He and his mother talk about Sissy so often it's like I knew her, and she is sorely missed.
Q & Ra are my birds, I miss them screeching to greet me when I get home and the joy of their company.
The Black Turken is the bird in my profile picture
I've always enjoyed looking for graves and hunting for cemeteries. I've got family buried in a number of local cemeteries that I visit often and have a number of graves I regularly check on in nearly all of the cemeteries in my county as well as surrounding ones.
This has also extended to peoples' virtual cemeteries, I go through a lot of them. It's always interesting, like those in the real world. (I should also mention I love reading peoples screen names, too, some are so cute, clever, or otherwise interesting!)
I've visited most of the graves I've listed here and but I AM NOT related to most of them, if you want to edit/add a biography on anyone I've listed please contact me and I will be happy to do so. I'd also be happy to transfer memorial ownership.
Sometimes my spam filter is wonky and catches corrections from here, if I don't correct a correction leave a message here, thanks!
I wish that all the memorials on here had a bit of a bio, an obit, a note from family or a scrap from a newspaper. So that you, the reader, could have even a tiny glimpse into the life that is gone. Same with family links, it makes me sad so many memorials have no links, no bios, no flowers. I have been working at finding out anything I can for everyone I've added, but so many of these people are simply a mystery.
A while ago someone asked me why I do this, why do I spend time in cemeteries, taking pictures of graves, researching families that aren't my own, adding them here, linking and transferring, talking to people and finding out more. Ask me every day and I imagine I'd have a different answer every one, but in the end it boils down to love. I love what I do, and I love my family, and know that everyone was once loved, loved others, and just because they have died doesn't mean that they don't deserve the love of the living, even if it isn't a relative or friend.
Sites that are a huge wealth of information!
Death is beautiful when seen to be a law, and not an accident - It is as common as life.
~Henry David Thoreau
Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
~1 Corinthians 15:55
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
"Mayst thou rest soundly and quietly, and may the light turf lie easy on thy bones."
"My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today."
~Richard Adams, Watership Down
It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch, but stopped for a moment to watch his rabbits and to try to get used to the extraordinary feeling that strength and speed were flowing inexhaustibly out of him into their sleek young bodies and healthy senses. "You needn't worry about them," said his companion. "They'll be all right--and thousands like them. If you'll come along, I'll show you what I mean." He reached the top of the bank in a single, powerful leap. Hazel followed; and together they slipped away, running easily down through the wood, where the first primroses were beginning to bloom.
~Watership Down, Richard Adams

|Memories of You||RE: Transfer|
Thank you so much!
|The Genealogy Genie||Hello|
I just wanted to say how much I like your username, but when I clicked on your profile, I saw that your dad died last year. I left a token for him. Your dad had such a great smile. No doubt it came from the joy he had in his heart.
My dad died last year too. It's been a difficult time, but I take comfort in knowing he'll not be forgotten. I hope you are able to say the same.
Thinking of you!

|Margot Cole||Davis Family|
Hi Chicken, Thank you for the memorials for the Davis Family. There are a couple of correction I would appreciate that you make. First on memorial # 16765795 for Sarah Davis, her maiden name should be COLE, not Coe as it said on her obit.Also for son Guito Davis # 16765784 his age should be 14 yrs and 5 mo. He was born in 1847 as he was on the 1850 census. One last change on David Davis #16765792 he was born in 1799 in Wales.
Thank you for your time.
Margot Cole, Volunteer also
Thanks so much for answering me so quickly. One day I will have to try that~ as it sure did make them come alive. It's just awesome to watch. I know it must make you sad, but having video is probably even better then photos~ as it usually brings their voice and their personality to life. I would say my videos are my most favorite thing in the world > then photos. It's sad that we forget things in time, but one day we will be in heaven for the great reunion and we will never have endure death of our loved ones again. That is a day I look forward too. Thanks again for everything. Sandy
I never saw a site that had actual video on the memorial instead of a photo. When you get a chance, will you let me know how you do that? You can write me at Savingdolphins@aol.com or send a message to my profile. It sure does make Findagrave memorial come alive. Thanks for being a part of the Findagrave family. Sandy
I just want to Thank you for remembering my Dad on his Angel day and leaving a token. Myself and my Family really appreciate it.
|R Woodard||Woodard's of Fulton, NY|
First I want to thank you for your contributions to this site!
I would appreciate it if you could contact me to transfer memorial ownership of most (not all are relations) of the Woodard's in the St. Mary's Cemetery in Fulton, NY. When you contact me I will let you know which ones to transfer. Thanks!
|EmilyAnn Frances May||Hello, Chicken!|
Hi there. Belated Valentine's Day Greetings!
Thank you for your recent visits to my family and companion bird memorials. The animated tokens you leave are so delightful. My favorite is the balloon being inflated and bursting into little hearts.
Love will outsurvive us all and it is loving memories that are part of our legacy and inheritance.
I've enjoyed visiting the memorials to your birds, especially The Back Turken.
