Hi Carolyn, I emailed Timothy last night and he emailed back this morning. He is still with us. I was concerned about him too when i saw the dates on his memorial listing. Hes the last of his family and has been very sick and added the date just in case he would pass away, but has removed it now. I just wanted to let you know since you care too. Keep him in prayer because hes still sick. Thanks.

Hi Carolyn, You dont know me but we have a friend in common. Timothy. I saw you left him a message that he had passed away. I was wondering if you know for sure or if it was like i saw it in his memorial list that he passed Oct. 15. I noticed his memorial dont say it yet and his flowers are still off. If he did, he will be missed a lot. Thanks.

Your welcome. The other photographer must have been a little lost on her map, I found her right where she was supposed to be :) I really love going to Spring Grove, it is a beautiful place.

|Timothy Purnell||Your Magnificent Soul|
True poets find rare magic and meaning as well as soulful expression in choice words. And your wonderfully endearing gift has the power of all these qualities. But to me, your friend and brother, some of the most magical words of all are ... 'Carolyn' and 'Darlene'.
I have taken great solace at your marvelous, deeply touching praises of my parents and modest self and will remember you forever!

|Timothy Purnell||A Truly Very Important Person|
You are one of the kindest and therefore most precious people in the world! I appreciated your caring birthday wishes as well as the marvelous attention to my parent's memorials tremendously!
Easter this year was the coldest in 50 years in Great Britain (up to 16 feet of snow fell in Scotland) and of course now the last of my family has gone I did not celebrate it.
I hope the best sister and friend any one could possess has very many deservedly happy moments with the warmer joy of lasting contentment ...
May God bless you!

I hope all is well with you and yours.
Love from your Sister In Christ, Darlene

Thank you Darlene from the bottom of my heart for visiting all my memorials. Each and every one of my memorials are precious to me especially my son. Not only do you take hours looking for my family's history and re-do old pictures but your visits are precious to me. I wish I can do more for you.
Have a Great Night. It's suppose to be Spring but Winter refuses to leave us and we're getting snow flurries again!!
Love & Hugs

I had Feb 18th tucked in my mind to token your precious Dad on his Angel Day. And I still missed it. I just tokened him today. I'm so sorry!! I have so much on my mind these days and nothing stays in my head for long. March is approaching and that month is a disaster to my family. I have so many deaths and birthdays in March I had to put the list on my daughter's home page. I don't have the room. I got your e-mail but haven't had time to fully let it sink in.
Hoping you are well these days and your family. I love your bio picture.

Thanks you so much for the beautiful token left for my parents on my dads site. This was very thoughtful and I appreciate everyone as I end my everyday with a visit to their Find A Grave site.

|Joyce||I found more pictures|
I'm finally after 4 long years after mom's death to be able to sit down and sort through boxes and boxes of my parents stuff. I found 2 more rare pictures of my dad's side of them as little kids. I have the new pictures on Andrew, Albert, Janie and Ray's memorials. I also found out from my dad's birth cert. that Andrew was a farmer. Listed his occupation as farming. I don't know why it has his age listed as 55 where he was clearly 59 when my dad was born. Andrew was born in 1858 and its on his stone. In 1917, he would be 59 in Oct 1917 when dad was born. Andrew was born Aug 1858. They have Janie as 20 which is right. I found another rare picture of my mom's side too. I had 4 complaints about Albert (throught the edit tab) to remove him since he is a burial unknown. So I just put down creamation. I've been calling everywhere in Va and nobody has no info on him. There is one place I thought he would be....Winchester National Cemetery which holds the veterans but they haven't taken in any new interments since 1969 so that is out.
How have you been these days?
Added by Joyce on Jan 10, 2013 9:27 PM
Happy New Year Darlene.
I want to thank you for all your help to me this past year. You are a God sent present for dad's family. I never knew where they were buried even though I knew it had to be Virginia. but having no contact with any of them since the mid 1960's, it hard to keep track of family. My dad only once went back to Virginia to bury his mom in 1981. Other than that, nobody stayed in touch.

|Timothy Purnell||A Grateful Acknowledgement|
My very dear friend, Carolyn!
Truly, I thank you so very much for touchingly showing respect and interest in my parents' memorials by visiting them and leaving deeply thoughtful and inspiring words. They were good people in this life, similar to your dear parents, and their spirits deserve this and bless your kindness and friendship as I do!
Most people wish optimistically for a better future in the coming New Year but so often this is not to be. Whether fate is good or bad to us let us make the very best of the present and be grateful for our precious friends at Find A Grave.
God bless you, dear Carolyn, and your family always!
PS. From your recent photos your parents and you were as attractive as your beautiful hearts!

|Joyce||RE: More info....|
I am so grateful for your time and searching. I do not mind at all. I wish I had the brains or time to do this myself but I have short term memory from an injury to my head earlier this year and my memory comes and goes. It's gone more than I wish to admit.
I wanted to clear something up for you. Have you noticed my dad is never mentioned in the Census! My dad told us he ran away at the age of 12 and joined a circus to survive. My dad would have turned 12 in Oct. 1929. So anytime after that and 1930 (when the Census was taken) he was gone from the orphanage. Dad told us the conditions in there were terrible and the bigger kids would beat up the younger ones and worse. Dad said he took off with only the clothes on his back and nobody from the orphanage ever came after him. So dad schooled himself and made a living at a very young age but kept that resentment with him till his dying day that his parents didn't want any of them and was quite bitter at times but never at his kids or wife.
It looks like dad's mom was pregnant with my father when she got married. lol I guess some things don't change. My mom's mom was also pregnant with a man 14 years older than her. I even have the note from my grandmother's brother telling her not to marry Ralph Livingston and to go to a home for un-wed mothers and have her baby and put it up for adoption. But Janie was almost 40 years younger than her husband. Andrew born in 1858 and Janie in 1897. Talk about robbing the cradle.
Ok Darlene, I rattled on too much and will add this info on their memorials. Note that I've gave you the credit for all your work and I deeply appreciate it immensely.
P.S. I'm a little down today and might not be on because my mom's 4th Angel Day is tomorrow and I miss her so much!

|Joyce||RE: Hi Joyce...|
Thank you....I'm not having any luck. My dad last saw him in 1930 when my father ran away from the orphanage. Their mother never acknowledged any of her children. Albert, it seems, left the orphanage when he became of age and never looked back. Just started a new life which I cannot blame him. I briefly saw dad's sister's (or I think they were) way back when I was a toddler and only remember the two women fighting with my grandmother telling them to shut up. Leonard was dead already so my grandmother Janie only kept in touch with her 2 daughters and my dad when they were grown up with families. Last time anyone saw Albert was over 80 years ago. Very hard to trace anyone if the family broke up and separated when they were kids.
I appreciate your help immensely!! You're an Earth Angel that was sent here to help me. All my family is dead and with any papers leading to my dad's youth are not with me and most likely destroyed and in Virginia.
