Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thought for July 2015: Time spent away from the world helps us better function when we return to it. Summer with its long, slow days is a good time to plan little retreats each day to rest and renew.

Special thanks go to all visitors who have tokened my Mom's memorial and those of her birds. The Cardinal (Red Bird) has special meaning to me. In my Mom's journals, which I found after her passing, she attempted to create fairy stories in which a Red Bird would appear at mysterious ways and times to help maidens in distress. Thanks to all who took the time to note that and leave these special tokens at her memorial.

REGARDING PHOTOS: Please remember that I am the copyright holder for the photos of my Mom and Dad, Maternal and Paternal Grandparents and Paternal Aunt, as well as Baby Gerald. If you copy these photos to your family tree I request a link back to the memorial and credit as noted at the memorial. This is all I am requesting.

For photos belonging to other FindAGrave members please check their Memorial Manager page for their position on usage of photos.

Any photos that have been provided by the Kennedy family members must also be credited. Failure to properly acknowledge the source of the photos will result in my notifying the family members.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT FOR THE JEWISH RELATIVES IN MY LINE the Menorah, Star of David, or photos of pebbles are the traditional expressions of a visit to the beloved departed's resting place. A candle can also be used. I appreciate all previously left tokens but recently I have been advised to request what is appropriate for this faith.

In all matters of kinship: If we are related in anyway, then contact me by email and provide a link at Ancestry or some details about your family line, or perhaps your memorials here at FindAGrave.

Transfer Requests: You must follow the established FindAGrave procedure and request transfer using the Send A Correction feature. Again do not use the Public Message board for this purpose. I do not transfer my relatives unless you are closer in kinship than I am. I will gladly transfer memorials of those not related to meand am willing to do so outside of guidelines provided your request shows a sincere desire to take over Stewardship of the memorial. Please supply enough details to help me make such a decision.

PURPOSE OF THE MESSAGE BOARD: I use the Message Board strictly for messages between members and to exchange greetings. Please do not make flowering requests here, especially repeat ones.

PURPOSE OF THE MOURNING, GRIEF AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FORUM: This is the best place to request tokens for your beloved departed. Be sure to include the link when you make a request there.

Please visit my Mother's Memorial: Emily Leatrice Serrapede

My Mother's Cousin and Best Friend as she grew up: Rita Errico,
Rita's husband: Joseph Bishelany

My Father's Memorial: Frank Jesse Torregrossa

RE: Happy Belated Birthday Greetings
Thank you for always thinking of me. I'm recovering from a major house's taken weeks to stabilize and replace things. I pray all is well.

Happy Fourth
Dear Emily,
Gannon and I hope that you have had a nice holiday...I am visiting your pages right now, and am sorry I don't personalize my tokens much anymore, but I can't see to do all that typing... =( Know my prayers and blessings are sincere, though, and I have a thought for you - on one of the pages I just visited, a baby, you can't make out the full cause of death. I think you might be trying to decipher paramen ovale - that's a hole in the heart, and the term has been around for a century or so. I know because it is repeatedly in my family's paperwork... The other word you see, something like fratis - the doctor may have been thinking 'fraternal', for the father's side as cause of problrm, I don't know. But thought I'd pass that on...anyhow, will try to visit more often, and am sending lots of hugs your way - Rhonda and Gannon Blue

I made the change you asked for. Please check, and request a transfer if you want to maintain her memorial.

I appreciate all the good
feelings shared over the last 2 years. I made the mistake of using my real name in the beginning here, went onto the forum, my opinions on politics prompted Find A Grave members to look me up persoanlly, and there are some very angry people here. I couldn't stand for the thought of hateful people from those forums attacking me persoanlly, or my family.

I respect your family and feelings here on Find A Grave, but know, there are not just people here who are nice, like you. There are some very hateful, anonymous people on the forums who attacked me persoanlly. I will always remember you and your spirit EmilyAnn. Renato and Leola's son.
