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.

Thank you so much Kim for taking the photos of Richard and Jan. They are my ex in-laws and they were cremated and buried together. Appreciate you taking the time out of your day.

St. Theresa's cemetery in Summit. If you can post her grave I will add it to my tree. It should be near the Mouquin grave.

I'm on vacation, and the email on my phone is sometimes a bit wonky!

I'm stumped. I can't find an edit with an obit for him, with or without a miss-spelled Massachussetts. I even looked through my deleted email incase it was discarded accidentally, but no luck.

RE: Delbert Wofford
Kim. I am distant family but would not ask you to take the photo down. I thank you for honoring him and the others.

Thank you for taking the picture of my Dad's nephew. My Dad was born 4 years after his nephew, Ed but they were close from the start.
Ed has been transferred to me and I have linked him with his parents although I don't know where they are interred.
I am also a new widow (April 2015) and F.A.G. has given me a new avenue for my genealogy.
I am thankful to all the volunteer photographers for the work they have done to link families after death. Those photos have answered a lot of genealogy questions.
Thanks again. Keep up the good work.
