Bio and Links
Bio Photo If anyone has anything to add to a memorial I've made PLEASE let me know and I will be glad to add the information! I Love to link their parents to each memorial or have their obituary to add.
I'm interested about who my ancestors were and how they may have influenced who I am today. I am also researching my husbands ancestors and am learning as much as I can to pass on to our daughter. It's also fascinating to learn about the many different church backgrounds they all have had. Still searching in PA!!

I found this through a friend:
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Dorothy Baker
Hi I deleted my memorial for Dorothy Baker.

Thanks for telling me what happened, I am very diligent for checking to make sure I don't make duplicates.

You did a nice job.

Hi Laura,

Thanks for the obit. Find A Grave removes obits that are posted to the picture section so I am afraid of it disappearing without either one of us knowing. I typed it out and put it on her memorial. Go ahead and remove the pic.

Thanks for your help in making her memorial more complete.

RE: Added New Photos
No problem!! I'm glad to have someone else to show them too especially when i've gotten to see so many I'd never seen before from your uploads! :)
I'm poking around to see if my one aunt may have more of the family photos because she took most of my grandfathers stuff when he passed and I know she has a few at least of Roy & Anna Sloat Hyser because they were very close with my dad and his siblings. Unfortunately I know a lot of Reich & Hyser photos my grandmother Mildred had were burned by Rick Seniors second wife which is why my dad only has so few.
I'll let you know if I find anymore and get them scanned. And sure if you want to pass me Rick Senior's that would be awesome thank you! Hope you're having a lovely holiday week xx
