Bio Photo They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

For The Fallen(excerpt)
Poem by Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
"Do not regret growing old. It is a privilege denied to many."
from LaDon Brennan (#46902635) profile page
"The love of a child goes beyond time, culture or boundaries".
— Angelica Awayan, funeral attendee - during the 2016 reburial ceremony for a child's remains left behind during the City of San Francisco burial relocation of the 1920's.

Find A Grave Memorial# 163371918
Her name was Edith Howard Cook and she died on Oct. 13, 1876 at the age of 2 years, 10 months and 15 days, according to the nonprofit Garden of Innocence, which used a team of volunteers to scour old records in a yearlong effort to identify her.
For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~ William Penn
"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory."
Leonard Nimoy 1931 - 2015
We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within ... this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories, and future promises.
Edward Sellner
SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use

Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!

Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.

Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at grave sites.

And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.

If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.

My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007 - All things must change. The new Find A Grave has begun on Sunday 9 July 2017. My current impression is too complicated, too busy looking.

"Remember me in the family tree, my name, my days, my strife; then I'll ride upon the wings of time and live an endless life."

RE: Josephine A. Smith Crook
No. I'm sorry. Eva Smith, her sister, was my 2g grandmother and my information about the other siblings and all but the JV Smith ancestors is almost nonexistent. Do you know anything about the Collins family or the Ford family?

RE: Virginia Berneeker Reynolds

Do you know if anyone might recognize people in old photos? I opened a box of pictures this weekend, and I had made notes back when my Mother was alive, some of the pictures either she didn't know herself but made an educated guess, based upon time periods and people she thought she might recall.

Some where of the Reynolds family she suspected. I can send you an email with some scanned pictures if you think you can ID them?? Or know someone who might ID them?
