I found this site when I was doing research on my family. What a pleasant surprise when I saw all the work that had been done by others volunteering their time and energy for such a cause.
I have since started enjoying genealogy work and gathering my family roots. When I have time, I also post from various newspaper obits. It is so nice to receive emails from surprised family members who have found their loved ones listed on Find A Grave. Our loved ones are gone, but their memories live on. With this in mind, what we do in life is a lasting memory.
God bless you and those who have gone before us... every person does count...! I am hoping that my little contribution to this cause can make a difference for you and your family.
To One in Sorrow
Let me come in where you are weeping friend, And let me take your hand. I, who have known a sorrow such as yours, can understand.
Let me come in — I would be very still beside you in your grief; I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend, Tears bring relief.
Let me come in and hold your hand, For I have known a sorrow such as yours, And understand.
Re: Garry & Denise Thank you for transferring Denise's Grave to me. As per our conversations here on Find A Grave and on FB I am asking you to delete Garry's grave at this point. This is at the request of myself and his daughter Amy!. Also know that I will be filing a complaint with Find A Grave if you do not, you are in copyright violation as no one gave you permission to post Any of those photos or any of the bio information you used for him. I own that right to most but not all of it.... So, dear, if you want to fight me on this, and trust me it's not what I want, then I will fight you.... Garry, himself, has asked me to have make and control his page! I will not be having any more conversations with you about this so don't reply I have had enough of this and so has everyone else. It's been a difficult time losing both of them and I miss them dearly, they are mine and Amy's family!!!
Re: Denise and Garry Thank you for posting the graves for my sister Denise, can you please transfer her to me (#46778569).
