Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

I wanted to give you a public thank you for all the edits you have sent. You truly work very hard to ensure memorials are correct and you very often provide the source without me asking.

I wish that all were as good to work with as you, then this site would not be such a nightmare of rudeness, craziness and just the plumb dumb.

Keep up you good work Vickie.

Thank you so much for the memorials of the Andrew Jackson Hatch family. They are direct relatives and I had never known where they were buried until finding this on FindAGrave. Thank you!

Thank you so much for the transfer. I agree family belongs to family and I am willing to transfer any to family. Thank you for understanding. I am taking my mom to the funeral on Friday. We have pictures of the Butlers that are of the family before the children were born and some after with the children. I hope to be able to share copies of them with the family.

Keep up the good work you are doing.

Although your intentions may be good your actions are not.

Imagine my surprise when I went to to add my father, 3 days after his death, and find that you had already added his memorial. He wasn't even dead 24 hours when you did this. Maybe you should wait a week or two before you add a memorial. I certainly wasn't thinking about adding his memorial the day after his passing. In fact, it was hard to go to this morning to attempt to create his memorial.

P.S. Maybe you should match contributors to survivors in the obits you post. You would have seen that I am a fairly active contributor.

Hi Viciie: I had received a request for this memorial but it appears you are closer with this surname incorporated within your name even. Do you want his memorial?
