Bio Photo My husband of 18 years passed away at 53 on Feb 20, 2016. Shock! Surprise! The underlying cause was hypertension, the silent killer....that's the truth. His only symptom was fatigue. Anyone with high blood pressure, not feeling well at all, see your doctor and get a CT scan or an MRI (not an x-ray). These can reveal an cardiac tamponade caused by torn aortic disection. That is: the heart sack fills with blood and crushes the heart.

HOPE for all dear grieving people - for all reasons.

There is a book I highly recommend; or may I say require. Dr. James C. Dobson, "When God Doesn't Make Sense" 2013, Tyndale House Publisher's, Inc. Even as a Christian of 33 years with great faith in Christ, I had lived in gripping fear that Christ would allow me also to be murdered, in my own home, as he did Linda a friend and neighbor. She was also a young mother of two small children.

I had to know WHY. Constantly I begged God to tell me "Why?" did she die that way? I pleaded that he give my soul rest from the mystery and explain it all to me. Why wasn't He answering me? If only I knew the reason, I was sure I would live free from fear.

One sunny afternoon on my patio, after praying "why?" for 33 years without an answer, there on page 88 in the book "I happened to be reading", was the entire answer. In the middle of page 88 was God's answer to me.

I was about to be set free from the mental anguish. It occurred in a way I really didn't expect and the answer was not what I expected.

Quote from page 88, "Probably the most important thing I learned in this entire process is this: I became deeply aware that there were TWO CHOICES that were only up to me to make: One was to continue in my anger from frustration at God and follow the path of miserable despair I was on. The other choice was, to think upon this...His [God's] ways are not always what we would do.... I must chose my personal freedom by only this: TO LET GOD BE GOD! Remember what I always knew: only God knows and " sometimes" its better we don't know. I don't know how all this fits together. But I decided to let God be God. I will never understand all the reasons nor how it all fits together."

I felt a 100,000 pounds weight lift from my shoulders when I too made the decision to let God be God. And leave it at that! Oh that indescribable peace that flooded my soul was like a drink of fresh, cold water. "Let God be God."

Sally, I noticed this duplicate out there for Shirley M. Butler Find A Grave Memorial# 97028732. There was one entered into the system before yours. Sorry yours has the better work and information but I believe the one entered first stays out there permanently. I hope you can get your information transferred to the original one. Good luck and thanks.

Schallbach vs. Schalbach vs. Schwallbach
While going through Maria Magdalena Bieren's information, I decided to get to the bottom of a confusing fact that I had noticed earlier from a previous source in the internet already...

There are definitely conflicts with the names of the towns.

Schallbach (two "l") is in Germany by Lörrach. It is very close to France, but...

Schwallbach (with a "w") is in the Taunus, which would be Nassau.

Schalbach (one "l") is in Alsace-Lorraine.

All additional information would support the Schalbach with one "l" in Alsace-Lorraine.
- Rauwiller, France is quite close
- Diedendorf, France is quite close
- Denting, France isn't THAT far away

Wharton Ronald Kresge
Hello Sally, I was looking for William Kresge's grave per your request but could not find him. You also stated you would like photos of other Kresge's in the same cemetery. Besides William, only one other Kresge did not have a photo, Wharton Ronald Kresge. I did find Wharton's grave, I'm uploading a pic now. Sorry to disappoint about William.

Maria Snyder - 34371169
I received your message noted below about this record. All I can tell you is that I did not post these links. They were suggested by someone else. If you have other links to replace these, please let me know. If not, I can post your comments on the memorial and you can discuss it with whoever contacts you.

Please let me know how you want to proceed.

Find A Grave contributor SallyDeppe has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Maria Snyder.

Their suggestion:
Hello - on Maria Sauerwine in Eqypt Cemetery, I don't believe her parents are as you have listed NOR her brother Lewis. William Sauerwine and Sarah nee Reuben's child Mary Anna was born Dec 3, 1832. In that case, Lewis would not be connected here.
