**If you email me for any correction, please put in the subject line Find a grave**

A dear neighbor got me interested in cemeteries while I was a child, she, her daughter and myself use to do Sunday drives and along the way we always stoped at a local cemetery.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry.

I am not there; I did not die.

If I should not be with you when the next sun sets,
Don't mourn.I've had a lot of sunsets, and I've loved them all.
But I have had such splendid things to love,
You'll know I've had my share.
Don't mourn.
Just reach out to the world:
Embrace it for me.
Grab joy, but let it shine; it may be all that's left of me Still shining.
And when rain dances, know thatI will be the dancing.
Don't forget: I love you always. Still.

Roosevelt was her maiden name, not her middle name. An edit is pending in your tab for this correction. Thanks.

It was so kind of you to accept my EDIT to connect Landon Collins #9483466 to his mother.

I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

Hi Laurie,

Cecil Vance
Hi Laurie, I posted a picture of his marker which is in the Falling Spring Presbyterian Cemetery near Covington, Virginia. Was curious if you are related to the Vances? My great grandmother Julia Ann was born a Vance in the Falling Spring area. I am not asking for a transfer at this time as I have not done hardly any work on her family yet. I am pretty sure though that Cecil would be a relative of hers as Falling Spring is a very small village.

Best regards,
Darrell Landrum

Hi Laurie,

I read your Bio, & WOW, congratulations on 15 years! Susanna Elizabeth Shunk,(#2811407) is my Grandfather's family lineage. I do realize for me it
my lineage to her is longer than 4 generations.
How am I able to get a picture, use the information shared with the memorial?
Unfortunately I have only "used" this site to look at, but would like to know more and this is a first start.

Any news would be greatly appreciated:)
