Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a cemetery walker and a genealogy newbie. I'm originally from St. Clair, MI, and I've been interested in my own ancestry since my mother took me on cemetery walks as a little girl, pointing out this relative and that one and instilling in me a passion for remembering and documenting the past and all those who shaped it. After visiting the F.A.G. website and taking several virtual strolls through the online cemetery I've come to realize that everyone deserves a remembrance. Whether they've come from humble beginnings and lived hard, frugal lives or been blessed with comfort and wealth, whether they've lived long storied lives or short, seemingly insignificant lives, everyone has a story. The people remembered on this website are woven into the fabric of our collective existence, they've created our pasts, molded our futures, and they're the backbones of our families. Each and every one has known and shown love, happiness, heartache, and pain, and their lives all had meaning and purpose. I will do my best to honor their memory, and am grateful to all of you who contribute and do your part to keep the memories alive. We owe it to those who have passed before us to document their existence for those who come after us, so that they may know from whom and from where they came.

Guess I'm just getting old because I find it very offensive. When he dies he needs a stone that says Biggest A in town. Thanks for answering me.

Question ..... the nicest A in town? That's all? No bio about her life? Help me understand.

Thank you for your beautiful words
I just wanted to take this moment to thank you so very much for the lovely message you left on my Mother's memorial. In the depths of my broken heart I am truly grateful for the way she had passed in my arms and the fact she was with me, but I am still the baby who misses her mommy so very much and am so lost without her.

No I'm not related. I was moved by the tribute to her. What a wonderful memorial to honor a beautiful person. Blessings to you and yours, Mary.

my dad
You sent a lovely message,
My dad omitted me from his will,3 days prior to his dying. His wife and my sister will share. I guess it seems fitting since they divided his ashes)

My mom would be very upset at him and my sister.

I will never understand what I could have done. However I have memories, and you cant take those away.

I just don't understand how someone could be so hurtful. He never even wrote me a letter.
