Bio Photo Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.
"Be still," they say.
"Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands."

My name is Cathy Schwartz Lukovich and I'm a cemetery walker and a genealogy newbie. I'm originally from St. Clair, MI, and I've been interested in my own ancestry since my mother took me on cemetery walks as a little girl, pointing out this relative and that one and instilling in me a passion for remembering and documenting the past and all those who shaped it. After visiting the F.a.G. website and taking several virtual strolls through the online cemetery I've come to realize that everyone deserves a remembrance. Whether they've come from humble beginnings and lived hard, frugal lives or been blessed with comfort and wealth; whether they've lived long storied lives or short, seemingly insignificant lives -- everyone has a story. The people remembered on this website are woven into the fabric of our collective existence, they've created our pasts, molded our futures, and they're the backbones of our families. Each and every one has known and shown love, happiness, heartache, and pain, and their lives all had meaning and purpose. I will do my best to honor their memory, and I'm grateful to all of you who contribute and do your part to keep the memories alive. We owe it to those who have passed before us to document their existence for those who come after us, so that they may know from whom and from where they came.

Hi, I am not sure I spelt the last name correctly but it is the F.A.G memorial from the husband whom obviously loved his wife and had a sense of humor abt her nice A$$ I read that some ppl have had complaints or issues regarding this memorial and I just wanted to say..... you did not write the words you are simply documenting a memorial that to me is sweet and funny and as far as it's appropriate questionability well the Family and the Cemetery allowed it. I think that it's great as much as he obviously loved her he still managed during his grief to be able to have a little humor and I would bet she probably would not only approve she probably would have had a good laugh herself! Thanks for sharing!

Merry Christmas
Cathy (Zinger): You are, by far, my favorite Find A Grave volunteer. Your notes and bio's on memorials reflect your caring nature and show how truly respectful you are of those who have gone before us. The stories of these folks need to be told and perpetuated and you do it from your heart so beautifully. Thanks Cathy. The Best to you always.

I just happened upon one of your memorials and read your profile. You have the same values regarding Find A Grave as I do. Just wanted to compliment you on your approach and the respect that you project to those that are no longer among us.
