|Bio and Links|
"Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your descendants be."|
Jesus said, " But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."
~~~ Luke 6:27-28
I've been involved in Genealogy for almost 40 years. It's been exciting traveling to different states, visiting court houses, libraries, cemeteries. Finding a link to tie my family together. I've been a member here for over thirteen years. I've been able to help some of you because of the nice letters I've received. I take pictures when I visit a cemetery hoping those of you who can't visit your loved ones graves can here. My memorials are respectful & caring. If I haven't linked memorials, I haven't gotten to them, but I will. I believe in linking them after death as they were in life. I do have a life & family. This year (2016) my daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer. What an ordeal it has been. I received so many notes from well wishers who added her to their prayers. Thank you! She's found out it's in her right breast. I have a feeling 2017 isn't going to be any better than 2016. I follow Find A Grave policy. I won't post cut out obits in the picture section, I won't add names of the living to obits. If I find them on my memorials they are removed. If you send me an obit for the bio credit is given. You are welcome to use the pictures I take. Credit does not have to be given. I'm glad to do it for you. I'm not a glory seeker. I'm dedicated to Find A Grave but it does not define me. I've worked with so many wonderful people in the 13 years I've been here & met a lot of you at cemeteries. All of you are hard working researchers. I take in 70-100 edits a week. I have a very active site. As far as pictures on my memorials, Find A Grave advises if someone has already submitted photo's to my memorials, I have the right to post my own & the other photo's will be moved down. They advise no one has a right to expect theirs to be exclusive. Any questions? Contact FAG. I've also been given a link to report harassment. All members are to treat each other with respect.
"She calls to me from long ago; through sunlit skies; through drifts of snow. In clouds that dance upon the sea, I call to her, and she to me.
So real was she. She laughed; she cried. She loved; she lost. She lived; she died. She hoped and dreamed; so real was she. She lived a life that I may be.
The blood through which my veins does flow is the same as her's from long ago. So it will be that when I'm gone in an unborn child it will flow on.
I'll live my life and when it's done I'll live again in those to come. For I'm a bridge from she to me; from those that were, to those to be."
