My interest in the area of genealogy and memorials came from not having very much knowledge of my fathers side of the family. Not knowing my father due to his death prior to my birth has resulted in my having very limited information about his roots and has given me a deep desire to learn as much as I possibly can about all sides of my family. I enjoy taking photos of old headstones in hope it will help others connect with their long lost family members. I have really enjoyed findagrave and have connected with some amazing people. I want to thank everyone that drops by to visit my loved ones memorials and thank you ever so much for the love and kindness you have shown.
God Bless You, Crystal

~~A Visit to the Gravesite~~
Dear Ancestor, Your Tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone. The name and dates are chiseled here, On polished marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care, Though it is too late to mourn. You do not know that I exist, You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you, In flesh, in blood, and bone. The place you filled so many years ago, I wonder if you could have known, Would spread among the ones you left In all the seeds you've sown. I wonder if you lived and loved? I wonder if you ever knew? That someday I would find you this spot, And come to visit you?
