Barb's Family Tree


The memories of all our yesterdays
live in the corners of my heart,
A time spent not so long ago,
where you will forever be a part.

I tell everyone I meet how very proud I am of you,
And how Hard it was to let you go
even though I knew you'd want me to.

But now somewhere, someone is smiling
because of the joy that you could bring,
And I know after listening more closely,
it's the song of unselfishness when I hear a bird sing.

And even though you can no longer be with me,
I still feel that you are there.
Perhaps, that's the bond that goes unbroken
when a love is truly shared.

So, I'll only say farewell because in good-byes I don't believe,
For I know that time will come again
when you'll be holding hands with me.

Lorrie Neal - 2003

My sweet George was even giving after death, he gave the gift of Life to others.

Re Shemwell-Meador
If you list an entry this way it does away with the search engines ability to locate the memorial. Putting both last names in the last name entry does not work. Maybe some day Find A Grave will figure out how to fix this problem.

Thank you Barbara, for the up date info I am glad to add anything you have. That is my goal to get as much info on these memorials as possible to help family members find loved ones.

Sharps in Claiborne TN
I noticed someone had mentioned you in a note on a Corum Sharp memorial. I was hoping you had info on this family. I am interested in finding memorials for Nancy Elizabeth "Nanny" White Sharp and spouse, Isaac Henderson Sharp. Their daughter Celia, (Find A Grave Memorial# 127530123) married a relative, H H Addington in 1918. I have the mems for both of them, although there is not much there. I have been sending edits to the contributor "camperpup", giving them links. If I knew where the parents are buried I would make the mems for them. Any help is appreciated.

I deleted Eva Feathers, so those edits won't go through.

Hi Barbara:

Thank you for visiting my 2 tabby cats. Your kind gesture to visit them means so much to me. I hope to see more of you in the future.

Have a great night!

You have Mary Elizabeth Fulton Joyce was the daughter of Lawson Rickman and Elizabeth Alford on her memorial site. She was the stepdaughter of Lawson Rickman and the daughter of his second wife, Mary Catherine Burns and James C. Fulton. Please remove the notation from her memorial. It causes some confusion. She is my husband's great grandmother. Thank you.
