Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello Reader. I am first and foremost a follower of the Jesus of the Bible: the Messiah, the Christ, the Creator, the "only begotten Son" - I love Him because He first loved me and it was by His death for me on the cross that I have hope past the grave!

I'm a fairly new widow with four grown kids and three perfect kid-in-laws, and the seven most adorable, brilliant, charming and sweet grandchildren ever born - and I'm not even prejudiced! :) When I'm not playing with them, I like to study the Bible, quilt, read great books, hike, backpack, travel, garden, and play board games. I am also a long-time "spits & furts" genealogist. And I enjoy volunteering for FindAGrave.

Thanks to my sister RhondaJo, who not only laid the foundations of my genealogy research, but who has encouraged me to do F.A.G. Oddly, I began to participate only a few months before my strong healthy husband of over 35 years collapsed and died without warning or illness. As a new widow, I am enjoying FindAGrave as something I can do on sleepless nights, "paying it forward" to future generations and strangers. I find cemeteries places of serenity and sobriety, but also of hope. My primary function in FAG is taking photos of local markers, and when I fulfill a request I take pix of as many extra stones as I have the back and time for. Usually there is a memorial already up, but on occasion I need to create a memorial, so if you see that I am managing your family or friend, please ask. It's my hope and goal that every site I put up will go to a family member or friend. I welcome edits, additions, and corrections to my memorials. You may use my photos.

Through the loss of my own husband and parents, I've realized that these memorials are the only lasting memorial place many people will ever have, and the only sight of the marker many will ever see. So I hope I and other photographers take time to clean up the grave site: whisk away leaves, wipe off bird poop, trim the grass from the edges, take a photo of the back of upright stones, and close-ups of details. Make note of the inscriptions, especially the small, fading ones. Then please, send a note via the edit button to the manager of the site with any new info gleaned from the marker. Thank you!

I am also willing to share what info I have on my family lines if I can help anyone. The lines I am especially interested in include:
Anderson/Peterson, Ashlin, Blackketter, Brady, Broome, Causey, Clary, Combs, Cowart, Freeman, Gentry, Groseclose, Humphries, Joiner, Kegans, McVey, Pate, Ring, Sorbello, Spangler, Ward, & Wells.

If you would like to read my husband's memorial, and leave flowers at his site, his memorial nummber is 60229291, Dale Sorbello.

If you would like to contact me off the public wall, I can be emailed at ksorbello at hotmail dot com.

RE: Margie Heffner
Osgood -Lagrone Monument Co. has been in the city for nearly or over 100 years. They have an extremely good reputation here. 806-373-9151. Explain to them what you are doing and I think they will work with you. The graves for all three are close enough that you could put one marker with all three names.

I will try to find the marker for RP and Leona. They are next to each other but the brick markers are bad about getting buried or overgrown. I'll post when I find them.

Margie Heffner
A photo of Margie Heffner's marker has been placed on the site. The marker is a cemetery brick marker. If you are interested in placing a proper marker I can suggest a reputable monument company.

Hi Kim - I have worked with Vince (no guts no glory) on many memorials and I am sure we will correct this duplication. I sent a request to Vince for deletion of the memorial I have as the new memorial has all the data and links. Thanks for bring yhis to our attention - Bob
