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 afriad. 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.

Could you please link James (in Greenwood Cem, Lagrange Co, IN) with his parents: John M. Preston: #82276814 and Ellen Mathews/Preston: #103965373.

I was much impressed with your comments concerning your father's death (my sympathy and prayers) and the importance of letting loved ones know how much they mean to us while they are still here.

Thank you so much....Tunie #46536984

Many thanks for the transfers, Paula. I think I have them all linked and many updated. I still have a few photos to add, and some missing family members to locate. Thanks for your contribution! -Mark

She's a distant relative so it's up to you. I don't mind taking her over and updating her if that's easier for you.
