Bio and Links
Bio Photo ** I will be away from Find a Grave for an unknown period of time. I will tend to all requests and edits as soon as I am able. **

My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

RE: Arthur Warren Parker 130354670
Thank you so much! I also added a request for another sibling: Mary Parker Gravitte #34873015, I believe she is buried in Timberlake, NC. There were 9 children total. With Aunt Geraldine's passing it got me interested in checking family members again. Thank you again for all that you. Sue

Would you allow me to manage Owen's memorial ? He was my first cousin's husband. I knew him all my life. We were born 20 days apart.

Dear Vickie, I saw you left a beautiful dove on this find a grave site. I am working on this tree for Jerome Oates. He is Georges son. He is 96 years old. If you have any family lineage on this family please share. Thanks

Hi Vickie,
Hope you are well and thanks for your message. I have processed all of the edits except the last name. Since Robo photographed the marker and it states Hudgins is her last name, it won't stand up to being changed. I imagine most folks know that I inherited all of his memorials. Many are rather blank while others just don't show a lot of links, etc. I have been hammered with edits since I took them over, which doesn't seem to be slowing down.
Good to hear from you,
