Bio and Links
Bio Photo My intentions are not to disrespect anyone living or deceased. Myself, like most people on FAG add information for genealogy purposes and personal reasons.

Obituaries are public information and are easily found. I was told obituaries are not the property of the newspaper because they are 'paid' for by the family and the family wants the information to be public knowledge, therefore it is not a copyright infringement. If you want privacy, my suggestions is to not publish a public obituary at all. I can and will delete memorials and information if approached nicely, but I can just about guarantee you that someone else is going to add it later and they are not going to ask for permission to do so. If you want to be ugly then go on face book and be ugly on there, that way people can delete or block you and your ugliness! TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED!
FYI: Most everything I have entered on FAG was taken directly from the "Cemetery Records of Yell County" which is available on line. In reality what myself and others have done is connected the families back together so no matter where they are buried or what their last name is they are easy to locate.

Sometimes there are mistakes in the cemetery records that we document, sometimes we make a typo mistake. It happens! I will correct my mistakes if you will let me know. FAG is like a big puzzle that we all work on together. If you do your part, the puzzle starts fitting together.


I started on Find A Grave on a mission to find out information on my Grandmother(Dollie Coffer Apple)and her family, I am at the same place now that I started, but hopefully that will change one day. Along the way I hope to help create a historical recording of those who have passed, especially for those with nothing but their name written on a piece of paper somewhere noting their final resting place. Hopefully my effort will help with not letting them be lost forever.

THANK YOU to all of you for your many kind visits and messages. I so very much appreciate our wonderful family here at Find-a-Grave and every visit and token left at my family FAG sites! I would like to say very special "Thank You" to Patty Valentino. Patty makes many many visits to my family members and leaves some of the sweetest notes. It really makes my day to see she has made visits to family members.

Remember me as you pass by,
As you are so was I.
As I am you soon will be.
Prepare in Life for Eternity.

If you come across an Angel..

Every day, in the world around us, real-life angels are doing the things they do... and bringing more smiles to the world around them.

Real-life angels build bridges instead of walls. They don't play hide-and-seek with the truth, and they don't have hidden agendas. They tend to be the only ones who understand what you're going through. if they sense that you're hurting, they do whatever they can to help you.

Real-life angels understand difficulties and always give the benefit of the doubt. They don't hold others up to the standards they can't live by themselves. Real-life angels are what "inner beauty" is all about.

Real-life angels don't hold things against you; the only thing they hold... is you. They take your hand in theirs when you could use a little reassurance. They walk beside you when you could do with a little guidance and direction in your life. And they support you in your attempts
to do what is right.

Real-life angels multiply your smiles and add to your integrity. They make you feel like, "Hey, I really am somebody who matters." Then they quietly prove to you how beautiful and true that feeling really is.

If you come across an angel like this, you are one of the luckiest people of all.

If someone in your life is wonderfully like an angel to you, it's important to let them know. It's the nicest compliment you could ever give... in all the days of your life and in all the years that you live.
- Douglas Pagels

Time may hide our sadness like a smile can hide a tear, but memories last forever no matter how many years
When the tears start falling and you dont know what to do, Think of all the tender moments your Angel spent with you

Hi sweet friend Mary,

You are so very welcome, and since I know that you like and appreciate a creative thinker/writer, I love doing something different/special for you. Believe me when I tell you it is my pleasure, and I'm happy that you enjoy it... :) Your appreciation always warms my heart, more than you will know.

Anhd I 'Thank You' for your visits to Sgt. Manno, and also to Sgt. Jesus Duran, it is very much appreciated.

How is the new little bundle of joy, that has

Thank you for your lovely note, and have a safe and wonderful weekend.
