Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found "Find a Grave" through my current husband Michael Pittsley. He was looking up famous people who have died and I checked the website. I found a way to honor my loved ones who have passed on. It has filled a real need for me, especially for my little granddaughter Emily, who was stillborn. I have always had a need to do something for her as her grandmother. This allowed me to do that. I am a nursing administrator for a rehabilitation center in San Antonio, TX. I lived most of my adult life in Colorado (Grand Junction, Pueblo, and Denver). I grew up and was educated in Hampton and Newport News, Virginia. I was married to Harold Lee Blankenship, Jr. for 28 years and have 2 lovely adult daughters with him, a granddaughter who was stillborn, Emily, and a wonderful grandson Keagan. We are still wonderful friends. I am currently married to Michael Pittsley. He is God's gift to me.

I miss Henk too. He was the glue that kept us going. No one has stepped up to do it, and If I knew how, I would. But you think of all of the request: It's enough to drive you into depression. I miss him chastizing me, too! LOL. But, angels go to heaven before common man, so I know he's looking at us, and smiling. Have a wonderful week, friend.

You're so right. I guess as we get a little older (ME!!! Not, you!!! LOL) we lose track of things and people who are in our lives...I hope all is well with you and yours. Take care, friend. Have a wonderful Holiday season, and peaceful times...

Family Passing,
It is with a sad heart that I inform my Find A Grave friends of the passing of my Father, William Leondas "Bill" Myers Jr., yesterday, January 3rd, 2010. Please, keep our family in your prayers as we go through this difficult time.
