|Judy K. Brantley/Wilson||Neglected Cemeteries|
Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately the cemetery most in question is in the heart of Atlanta and is privately owned. They will do little in maintenance or help to document those buried there, even though they have all the records. With them, it is definitely about the money (greed). After they were very ugly to me when I went to their office seeking information - I was determined to document the entire cemetery. At the time, I had no idea how very large it really was, as the woods cover up it's real size. Many relatives of those there have contacted me, but so many buried there have been gone unnoticed. These people were the builders and founders of the city of Atlanta and it is truly disgraceful how they are being treated - all for the almighty dollar (or lack of it). The goverment will not help in any way because it is privately owned. I doubt they would help, even if it weren't. This would be a good job for our lazy prisoners.

|Genealogy Girl||Genealogist's Christmas Eve|
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.
The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."
Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.
And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.
Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.
While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.
When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.
And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!
"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.
He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.
I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.
"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."
"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.
While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"

You are so kind to visit my daughter Teresa..Yes the butterfly is a sign to us that Teresa is with us in spirit. It came to us the day we went to pick out the plot to bury her and it landed on us all and stayed on her son Zach. It was his birthday we knew she wanted him to know she was there. The day we took the pictures was her birthday and her Daughter Abby and me and her Daddy was putting up balloons.As I started to sing to her it lit on me, Abby could not believe it and called for her papaw to come and look she flew to him and then landed on Abby and did not leave her all the time we were at the cemetary. She gently placed her in flowers that were still on her Mothers grave and it stayed there until we left.I am not sure if you noticed on my page that I have added Abby's Daddy. He was killed in a car wreck one month to the day her mother died. She is so heart broken his name is Anthony Andrew Red. Please visit if you can it would mean so much to Abby! Martha

|Patsy Steele||SUDDEN DEATH|
I have just left a token to your brother. I usually always read the bio if I have time. I know all about going through a sudden death. I suddenly lost my 36 year old son 2 years ago. It was such a shock we didn't know a thing was wrong with him. He too had big shoes to fill. He meant so much to me. At times it seems that I am getting adjusted but then all of a sudden I am reliving it. So sorry about the loss of your brother.
