|Deborah Jane Kline||Doris Hampton Trejo|
Hello. In 2008 you left a flag on a memorial for Doris Trejo. Are you related to her or did you leave the flag because she is buried with her veteran husband? I am trying to find descendants of hers because her father and my great-grandmother are siblings. Thank you for your time and consideration.
|Judy Gallegos Gafford||Edna Mae Young|
While looking for my husbands "adopted by heart" mom, I found this link. I am REALLY hoping it is the right Edna Mae Young. We live in Irving, Texas and my husband Richard rented a room in Dallas, Texas from her for a while before we were married. She moved back to Kansas in the 80's and we lost touch with her. She was a very big part of my husbands life and of ours with our kids. Even my sisters called her mom and all the kids in my family called her gramma. She had a sister named Virginia Swanner who lived in Kansas. We made many trips up there to see them. I would be thrilled if there was a connection. She was also a registered nurse and loved poodles. LOL Thanks for you time. Just let me know if I am on the right track. Judy Gallegos Gafford

|Edda Meinikat||My dearest friend|
Thank you so much for kindly remembering my parents. As you may guess, the loss of my dad was another bad shock for me, and it took me some time to get back onto my feet again, but I try my best and sure pray that dad is pleased with how I cope. Have not read from you in what seems like an eternity, please keep in touch, love and hugs, xxx Edda
Was wondering if u are somehow related to her?? We just found out she was related on my grandmother's side of the family. She would have been her aunt. We've been doing an ancestry search.
Hello, I noticed that you leave flowers on our family graves. Are you related to the Gilkey Family ?
|Jerry Fair||Charles F. Greenawalt|
Hi Jan, I see you added flowers to Charles F. Greenawalt's memorial. Are you related to Charles. The reason I am asking is that Charles married my great grandaunt Mary Fair from Birdsboro, PA. They had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. If you could provide me with any information I would be very grateful.

I saw you left flowers for Charles Graham of Anchorage. He was married to my great "Aunt Toni"...AKA Hilda. Did you know him?
Sometimes I need to reach out to you because this is the only acceptable place to grieve. Mother has now been gone 10 months. Most of the world thinks that is enough time to be on with my life. Papers finaled and settled, bills surrounding her death are paid. Life moves on. Things are moving but I am standing still.
I had a memorial video done when my Dad died. Many pictures set to music. When my Mom died, I had one done for her and put my Dad's on the same DVD. Now it is hundreds of pictures and seems like a root canal to watch.
I viewed it tonight for the first time since I buried her.
What I saw was babies, toddlers, young adults, young adults that found each other and fell in love. They grew up together. Over and over I replayed each picture in my head. It was the days before the responsibility of family life and work. While love was fresh and dreams were being built. The look of two people who loved each other and nothing was ever going to stop them. The days I was their baby and remembered the picture being taken.
What kept coming back to me was how real their lives were. That they had a childhood and a life. Even when I can't see them, it somehow goes on. We all are touched with life, our own and the loss of the lives taken from us. All over these pictures were people communicating love, with a gentle hug, a smile, eyes shining with hope. As I view the pictures of your loved ones on your memorials, I see the same lives, the same hope, the same "I leave you with my love."
So tonight I just wanted to say they are sending us their love, I know they are not gone but live on in our eyes, in our hope. In everything that made them, also makes us.
I don't want to stand still anymore. I want their lives to shine through me. I don't even know if it's possible. I have to learn how to grieve, I don't think I have been doing this right. I think part of grief is letting go, that courage that only we, can find deep within us that "they" put there. There is no doubt in my mind that our loved ones will give us the courage to grieve and let go.
Anyway I needed you tonight and I thank you for friendship and helping me find the courage that my Mom and Dad gave me.
