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.
Prayers Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,
RE: It's been awhile 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.
RE: It's been awhile 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...
RE: It's been awhile Hello Karen: I understand about Henk. I am still heartbroken over his passing.The link is gone... I will stay in touch, as much as possible. DOn't get on the computer too much anymore, especially at work. You take care, and know you always have a friend in Texas (Via California)
