"Grief can destroy you --or focus you. You can decide a relationship was all for nothing if it had to end in death, and you alone. OR you can realize that every moment of it had more meaning than you dared to recognize at the time, so much meaning it scared you, so you just lived, just took for granted the love and laughter of each day, and didn't allow yourself to consider the sacredness of it. But when it's over and you're alone, you begin to see that it wasn't just a movie and a dinner together, not just watching sunsets together, not just scrubbing a floor or washing dishes together or worrying over a high electric bill. It was everything, it was the why of life, every event and precious moment of it. The answer to the mystery of existence is the love you shared sometimes so imperfectly, and when the loss wakes you to the deeper beauty of it, to the sanctity of it, you can't get off your knees for a long time, you're driven to your knees not by the weight of the loss but by gratitude for what preceded the loss. And the ache is always there, but one day not the emptiness, because to nurture the emptiness, to take solace in it, is to disrespect the gift of life." ― Dean Koontz, Odd Hours ♥♥♥ If you get a chance please stop by and leave a flower for: My Bestie and so much more - Philip Finney My Mom - Audrey Worthington My Dad - Alra Sullivan My oldest Sister - Betty Fancher My middle sister - Judy My brother- Al My Grandparents - Lewis Romines and Betty Romines

Cork Cemetery I am trying to find out about the fund to maintain Cork Cemetery. My family came down to Edmonton from Louisville to visit graves in Edmonton and the Cork Cemetery was horrible. It was so overgrown you cou not see any graves and the entrance was totally blocked. My maternal Uncle Charles Acree (son of William Paul Acree) used to donate to the maintanence of the cemetery and now I would like to take his place. Living in Louisvile it would be really hard for me to be able to come and maintain the cemetery. If you know anything or anyone who is in touch with the property owners of the farm the cemetery is on, pease contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Marshall Ray Stephens Hello, I am researching the Stephens family for my Uncle Marshall Ray Stephens. He is the son of Henry, grandson of Claude Henry, and great grandson of Cyrus Stephens. Any information and photos you have of his family that I could pass along to him would be greatly appreciated. My email is Dewar4@sbcglobal.net. Thank you!
RE: Hello my old friend ♥ Gosh Sandy, I am so sorry about your loss - I remember when you first met your Finney! You sure have had some hard knocks these past six-seven years and I am sorry for that, too! I did manage to make it back to Kirk Hill with my youngest son and took a bunch of photos of the abandoned cemetery and the hike back to it. I am still riding my Harley during the warm months and doing the same old things! Santa didn't bring me much (I've been naughty) but we still had a nice Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season! Are you still in touch with our favorite California girl, Susan M.? I have been by your mom's and sister's graves several times and have an old pal buried there now and stop by to visit his grave from time to time. I can catch you up on a lot of things, just email me. Wishing you the best New Year that can be for you and wishing you the best of everything in 2014, God bless.
