I am a 62 yr old native of New Jersey ( born in Jersey City/ lived in Weehawken) who has lived in Southern California since 1973. The oldest of 8 children in a large Catholic family, I'm a full time Realtor who loves horses, vintage hats, the Renaissance Faire and attending daily Mass at Our Lady Help of Christians Traditional Latin Mass Chapel in Garden Grove, Ca. Find A Grave is a wonderful compassionate resource giving information & closure to many!
The Andy Griffith Show is probably one of my all time favorite TV shows, with Aunt Bee as my favorite female character. My late great Aunt Margaret was almost exactly like her & they could have passed for sisters! Hence the choice of my moniker. As everybody knows... Life is better on the front porch with a lemonade & cookies!
In my Relatives & Friends virtual cemetery, please visit my Dad: Donald Patrick Dillon My Aunt Dolores DeLorenzo Weber,( both buried in Colestown Cemetery, Cherry Hill , NJ. ) My friend Sharon Eckstein Condon in Holy Sepulcher Cemetery, Orange California. (Age 41- She died of cancer in Jan 2012 leaving 6 children behind.) My Uncle Peter Andrich who died in a head on collision in 2007 from a drunk driver just a month after my Dad died. James Doonan in Holy Sepulcher Cemetery in Orange, Ca. Just passed away 2013. He was the mentally handicapped brother of a friend.
MY SINCERE THANKS TO THE MANY WONDERFUL FOLKS WHO LEAVE TOKENS FOR MY FAMILY/ FRIENDS!
** In December 2012 I bought a vintage hat from the Bing Crosby estate that belonged to his first wife DIXIE LEE CROSBY, which I wear only to Sunday Mass. It's brown straw with real silk pansies & ribbon, with a little veil in perfect condition. It came with a handwritten receipt dated 1952 , which was the year she died. It's very special to me as I feel that by getting her hat, she knew I would remember to pray for her soul...Requiescat in Pace! **
Mayberry Just wanted to stop in for a friendly hello, maybe some of that lemonade and those cookies you speak of, and to ask if I can come sit on the porch in Mayberry with you? Life out here in the real world is a little too hard sometimes. :) (Love your moniker)
Thanks That was a very sweet token you left for my mom (who is from NJ) She loved fishing and hopefully she got to see your post. I love your name you picked for finagrave. I also loved that show. I look forward to getting to know you. Thanks again for all the tokens you have left on my memorials. You're a blessing to me, and to all those who use this awesome site. God Bless. Sandy
