Bio Photo Vegetable soup to warm your soul!

I joined this site in honor of my daughter, Marie, who I adopted in 1980 at 2 days old. She lit up our lives for 21 years and then she was gone. Life cut short by heart disease. I invite you to visit her memorial by clicking on her name.

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that adds to or updates any of the memorials I have created. Since the edits are so numerous it would take alot of time to respond to each individually so this is to let you know you are appreciated.

I will add any info and/or links needed for any memorial I have created in a timely manner as I feel these are important for those looking to identify if that certain memorial is their loved one.
NOTE: *******I am always happy to transfer to family/friends, just please tell me if you are a relative or friend to the person when asking to have a memorial transferred. If you are just needing to add info, I am happy to do so.

RE: William Robert Price
The Barefoot insignia is how I knew I had the right gravestone. I'm so glad that you photographed it. He was a world champion barefoot water skier and apparently was very influential in bringing the sport worldwide - even organizing the first world championships in Australia. Apparently, barefoot waterskiing is exactly as it sounds - skiing on water, barefoot. I guess I should have spent some time doing that growing up! The things you find out later in life. The whole family is very prominent (or was) in the sport. I'm 51 years old and though I found my birth-mom about 25 years ago, I'm just now learning about my "dad." I'm sad that he has passed and that the family has not been eager to share much information. Finding his grave (and date of birth and death) was made possible by you and brought me much peace and comfort. Thank you, again.

I was adopted in 1965 and have been searching for my biological father. It's a long story, but it ended recently when I found out he had died in the late 1980's. His family has not been forthcoming with details, but this morning I was able to find his gravesite, thanks to your photograph. I now know when he was born, when he died and was able to "visit" his gravesite. Thank you for the tremendous service you've provided. It brought me much peace and comfort to finally see it. I can put him (and my search) to rest. Blessings.

Using the white edit tab, I have requested the full given name for Garfield. He was named after President James Abram Garfield.

If you need prove, I have records showing most of his full name.

Thank you for your time and trouble in updating memorials.

Ni Martie, I don't know why I'm just now seeing your message. I cast my votes, but they still need 2 more each. Merry Christmas!
