Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Baby Boomer, born on August 9, 1951, now considered a Senior Citizen. That makes me laugh -- I don't feel like a Senior Citizen, but I do take advantage of the discounts!

I retired from the Sheboygan Police Department on my birthday, August 9, 2013.

My only child, Rebecca Rose, suffered and died of leukemia when she was "almost five." It's true when they say, you can't understand the pain and grief of losing a child unless you have experienced it yourself. How I wish Find A Grave had been around in 1983 when Becky passed away. Find A Grave has been a true comfort and a blessing to me personally. Such wonderful people I have met here!

My husband is Daniel. We married on September 4, 1999. He is a retired Technical Sergeant of the United States Air Force. He has two wonderful adult daughters from a previous marriage, Melina in Lynchburg, VA, and Sally in St. Louis, MO. I have two wonderful son-in-laws, Melina's husband Wil, and Sally's husband Chris. I am also a step-grandmother to Liam and Mila, but Sally corrects me and says I'm just grandma, forget the step. Melina and Wil gave us another grandchild on February 13, 2014, Priscilla. This is a joy I thought I'd never experience -- being a grandmother!

Note: THANK YOU to all the kind people who have left notes and/or flowers on the sites of my loved ones. I believe that every time someone leaves a message, the person it was intended for knows that you are thinking of them, which is very comforting to me.

Traci's Mom
Traci Fields

Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,260 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is a little over a week away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much.

I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,

"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".

Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.

GOD, bless them all, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.

We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. I will try to get to everyone's site and leave a flower/token for at least one of their loved ones. However, there are so many of you, it will take me a while.

Thank you so much for remembering my sister Jef. I am so sorry to read about the loss of your daughter. She was cute little girl. My Mom is so grateful when she sees someone has remembered one of her daughters. Jef was a special person and greatly missed daily.

Lori, thank you for the token and very kind words you left on my Traci's memorial. Yes, we do have a kinship. Our daughters' went through such hard times with their leukemia and GOD held their hands and hearts during the whole time.

Traci as well as your daughter were wonderful gifts from GOD. They're in our hearts and minds every single day. Their passing has left major holes in the hearts of their family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

Ms. Bramstedt
I got a kick out of your personal story from Ms. Bramstedt's obituary. She seems like she was quite the lady. I'm going to have to try eating an apple that way... actually, I think I'll leave that to her in her memory :)
