Just letting all of you know that on or about 3-27-2013, I took a really hard cardiovascular hit; spent a month at local medical facility; as I become stronger, will continue with Find-A-Grave but it may take a while to do all that needs to be done; would appreciate your patience with me.
August 8, 2015
I have a LOT of work to do! .. and "I think I can do that"! (quoting you-know-who when she was starring in a movie and was told, "All you have to do is walk into the church", or something close to that - I think it was 'walk into a church' - been awhile since I've seen it).
Sorry I've "been away" for such a long period of time! I am hoping to receive a new computer in the not-too-distant future as this one appears to be on its last 'gig-a-byte' .. it occasionally works but, most often, 'occasionally DOES NOT'; thus, the reason I've been unable to make corrections, answer e-mails, etc.
For all of you who have said prayers for me and sent messages re. my health, my sincere "Thank You" to each of you.
Thanks to my Precious Lord Jesus Christ, I am now doing well. What happened to me? I died 3-27-2013 about 15 minutes after I sat down at the computer. My daughter heard a small plastic item hit the tile floor and, thinking 'some books had fallen' called out from the living room, "Mom, are you o.k.? (X 2) and, when I didn't answer, came from the living room to check on me and found me lying in the floor very dead and, while calling 911 EMS, she immediately began the chest compressions which were continued by EMS when they arrived; I was taken to the local medical center and someone came to my daughter immediately and said, "This is grave, you need to call your family". Following what I refer to as "receiving the ice-water baptism" (I was frozen) and "having my throat cut" (ventilator) and, "sleeping" for about 12 days/nights, I awakened one afternoon about 3:00 PM, wide-awake, no pain, flat of my back "with hoses and tubes everywhere", still on the ventilator, and was immediately told by my daughter and sister what had happened to me. After about an hour, they went home (having been there 'round the clock) and the doctorS began coming in and telling me what had happened and that I was now known as the "miracle at St. Mary's", one of the doctors telling me, "We know what happened - your heart quit beating but we don't know why" and one telling me that only 1 in 5 usually survive what had happened to me ... and some people did ask me, and still do, if I saw 'a bright light' or 'went through a dark tunnel' to which I answer, "No, but, when I woke up, I felt like I had had the best night's sleep I could ever remember" (12 days/nights - no wonder I felt 'rested'!) .. and, having said all that, "I PERSONALLY know Who holds tomorrow and I know WHO holds my hand". He truly is Magnificent, Majestic - He has been, for many years, and will ALWAYS be my LORD! .. and to all my beautiful family members/friends at Find-A-Grave, please don't forget Psm. 23 and meditate on each of its phrases, .. green pastures .. still waters .. THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death (and do I fully understand that one!), etc., etc. .. and I ask Him to bless each of you every day of your lives ... Love to All of You, Della

What a beautiful testimony! Sometimes I feel I might keel over at any moment myself and I would hope for the same. If you are up to it I think I found a source. The History of the Big Sandy Valley and its earliest settlements. Author William Ely. Out of print. I found it at the Flatwoods, Ky Library. Available on-line Script, Up-load/Down-load. Index has early families by name. Excellent Sourse. David Garred/Jennie Grahm Page 136.? I hope all is well, Diane
In June of 2012 you left me a message saying you had an Ironton connection. If you emailed me I'm afraid I have forgot so when you feel up to it could you please send me another email. Judy Curnell

So happy to find you again and pray your convalescence continues. I have been or my late loved ones have been the recipients of your inherent kindnesses several times on this venue.
I so appreciate all you do. I experienced "death (cardiac arrest)" much as you did but for a much shorter time.
Oh how I wish
a long healthy life for you & your loved ones.
