We are not here by chance.
We have come here through the lives and loves of others.
Those who came before us shaped our lives.
They helped us to become who we are.

Thoughts to remember ...
Every day, antique shops sell items from forgotten lives -- photos, albums, letters.
Those people had cared about each other. Then one generation came along who did not care, or no heir was left.
At that moment, all they had saved for so long, in hands and hearts, became lost.
Now all they held dear is for sale -- trinkets. In the photographs, their eyes meet ours.
All they discovered about life and could tell us, is lost to us now. Their adventures that could spark a new generation's imagination, are gone.
We must not let that happen.
If a person doesn't care today ... they are mistaken to think that no one ever will care. Someday, when a child asks 'where did we come from?', the worst thing for them to hear is 'I don't know, because no one cared.'
A family's heritage is like a chain, and each new generation is one link. Each link must be kept strong. If one link breaks, the rest of the chain falls away.
A family's heritage is: caring about people and sharing what we learn.

A short personal note:
Over the years, I've been fortunate to make over 300 heritage searches as a volunteer with RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness).
The joy that comes when a family discovers their heritage can't be put into words.
Please feel free to ask, because I'm happy to help here on Find A Grave. I'll do my best.

We honor people in respect and gratitude for their lives.
Perhaps they hoped we might care, someday ... and we do care.

Thank you for sponsoring Mrs. Roberts memorial page. I have transferred management of her memorial to you.
The photos you added are really nice, such a beautiful lady and a handsome couple. I really enjoy seeing the older photos.
