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.

Hi Barbara, Thanks for the information on Find A Grave Memorial# 89584785. I added a note to that effect on the memorial. Thanks again.

William Case edit
Hi Barbara,
Perhaps William's mother was EMily Parris as my bio reflects but the name of Lou Jones on DC might be father's second wife perhaps?

I've linked William to spouse and father but want to go back and research further my source on mother's name.
Would be good if you use the edit for relationship links that take you directly to that memorial. it helps. thanks!

Hi there, I really hesitate to link them.. they were married for many years, but not to each other at the time of their deaths. In fact he was married to another lady named Mary when he died. Neither of their obituaries mentioned the other.

take care,

B Fuller

Barbara thank you for the Information for Mabel. I had her linked to her grandparents by mistake. Thanks Carol

Thank you so much Barbara. I appreciate you linking him to the other family members. I am currently looking for old photos of him in Mom's albums.

Hi! I went ahead and transferred the family to you… even if the relation is distant.. it's more than me! They are buried next to a photo request I was hunting that day and snapped the pictures in case they were family. It makes better sense that family holds their memorials. Take care! Dana
