Peace to all. I believe we need to connect to our past in order to live in the present. I have so many loved ones who have passed on that it compels me to try and understand. One way is to honor those who have gone on. That's why I am here. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ RECENT MEMORIAL: It has been hard to post this memorial for my precious 16 year old niece because it seems so final to see it in print and her beautiful face that is now just a memory. If you have time, please visit and help me put beautiful tokens on her memorial. She loved horses, dogs, cows and any kind of critters. Her smile could melt me. I miss her so.

My wonderful dad, Robert Coleman DeWitt really belongs in the "famous" portion, but he always said "I'm a legend in my own mind". He was a bluegrass great and a legend in the southern Missouri area. He started playing music at 16 years of age and didn't quit until he died. He'd steal a show and just make the young musicians stand in awe of his beautiful guitar runs and could sing a song with so much soul it would make your toes curl.
Thanks to all of you who visit my loved ones. They are all precious and so are your loved ones. I love visiting and honoring your memorial too.

I remember you told me you weren't able to get him on the famous list I asked a few friends to see if they could help. I will copy and paste their suggestions below and hope it helps you get his memorial listed as famous. I belong to find a grave.com group on facebook

Jackie Wilson Goddard I wasn't meaning "formatted" like an encyclopedia entry; I meant the info needs to be written like an encyclopedia entry. So, on St. Andre Bessette's, the last two paragraphs need to be removed right off the bat. Probably the prayer, also. 11 minutes ago · Like

Memorial to Mitch Jayne Just read the beautiful memorial to Mitch that you did. Though I didn't know him personally, my father did and from what Dad told me about him, you captured the gentleman to a T.
I have asked one of the Administrators to see about changing his status to Famous. I can't think of a single person more deserving of that status.
