Bio and Links
Bio Photo My dad, Harold D. Bryarly, Jr. past in 1996 of cancer. I will never forget the look on my dad's face when I told him his brain tumor was not operable. It broke my heart.

My dad's friend, Steve Stone had been sick for a few years and was afraid to die. If I remember correctly, he had come close to deaths door a few times. He was by my dad's side when he took his last breath. I believe he needed to see that he didn't have to be afraid. He passed 6 months later.

Before my dad's passing, my family never really said I love you or hugged much. We do now. Don't be so sure that someone knows you care or love them, tell them, because one day you or them will be gone. I'm no longer afraid to say I love you. I want my friends and family to know without a doubt.

I began serious searching my family tree shortly after my dad passed. I've met many distant cousins and shared loads of info. It has been awesome. I've helped people with their trees. I'm not a professional genealogist. I find all my info on free sites or libraries. I will help anyone with their tree. I may not be able to give them any new info, but I sure will try.

My motto: "Not everything has to cost something."

I don't take money or material things for the help I provide. I only ask that they pass the kindness around.

I no longer live in LaGrange, IN, so work with memorials is strictly by corrections/additions. Sorry.

Alot of obits and info on my memorials come from others. I do not claim the recognition. Some have asked to not to be mentioned.

If you would like added information for Willaim Gonser I can provide the names of his children for his site. His youngest daughter is my grandmother:
Ocie Bell Gonser Pinney.
According to the information I have William and Mary Ann had six children.
This would be for Memorial #28106824 and #28106776

RE: Welcome
I don't think I explained the reason for all the additions to the Deter family. I am not related, but because of a mistake on the obit for a spouse of a relation, I started digging. The detective in me couldn't resist! You might say I am easily distracted?
Check out # 45862367 and I hope that may explain.

RE: Welcome
I am so sorry for all the loss you have experienced.
It is even harder to understand when they are so young. I know your step-daughter's mom will always watch over her.
Yesterday, April 18, was our Granddaughter's "Angel Day". She was 23. It has been four years.
