Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi! Please take a moment to stop by and visit my Dad, he died June 13, 2013 and I miss him terribly.

Thank you so much to everyone who leaves flowers for Dad! It means a lot to me to know he's remembered.

****New Memorial!*****
A coworker of mine, Shari died suddenly Oct 16, 2014. She was a wonderful woman and it's such a shock to everyone who knew her.

If you have a few moments, stop on by to visit some of my family, they're all very dear to me!

Grandma and Grandpa Gantley, I can't believe they've been gone so long. Aunt Eileen, too, who was total awesomesauce. Jeff was married to my cousin, he was always a lot of fun and we were shocked when he left us so suddenly.

Sissy was my sweetheart's sister, she left them far too soon. He and his mom speak of Sissy so often it's like I knew her, and she's sorely missed. His Grandpa Evans is a frequent visitor in family conversation, too. Aunt Lil, who died in March 2013, asked to be added to Findagrave, the whole story is on her memorial :)

Q & Ra are my birds, I miss them screeching to greet me when I get home and the joy of their company.

The Black Turken is the bird in my profile picture

I've always enjoyed looking for graves and hunting for cemeteries. This has also extended to peoples' virtual cemeteries, I go through a lot of them. It's always interesting, like those in the real world. (I should also mention I love reading peoples screen names, too, some are so cute, clever, or otherwise interesting!)

I've visited most of the graves I've listed here and but I AM NOT related to most of them, if you want to edit/add a bio. on anyone I've listed please contact me and I will be happy to do so. I'd also be happy to transfer memorial ownership.

I wish that all the memorials on here had a bit of a bio, an obit, a note from family or a scrap from a newspaper. So that you, the reader, could have even a tiny glimpse into the life that is gone. Same with family links, it makes me sad so many memorials have no links, no bios, no flowers. I have been working at finding out anything I can for everyone I've added, but so many of these people are simply a mystery.
A while ago someone asked me why I do this, why do I spend time in cemeteries, taking pictures of graves, researching families that aren't my own, adding them here, linking and transferring, talking to people and finding out more. Ask me every day and I imagine I'd have a different answer every one, but in the end it boils down to love. I love what I do, and I love my family, and know that everyone was once loved, loved others, and just because they have died doesn't mean that they don't deserve the love of the living, even if it isn't a relative or friend.

Sites that are a huge wealth of information!

Death is beautiful when seen to be a law, and not an accident - It is as common as life.
~Henry David Thoreau

Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
~1 Corinthians 15:55

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
~ John 15:13

Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.

"Mayst thou rest soundly and quietly, and may the light turf lie easy on thy bones."
~Albius Tibullus

"My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today."
~Richard Adams, Watership Down

It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch, but stopped for a moment to watch his rabbits and to try to get used to the extraordinary feeling that strength and speed were flowing inexhaustibly out of him into their sleek young bodies and healthy senses. "You needn't worry about them," said his companion. "They'll be all right--and thousands like them. If you'll come along, I'll show you what I mean." He reached the top of the bank in a single, powerful leap. Hazel followed; and together they slipped away, running easily down through the wood, where the first primroses were beginning to bloom.
~Watership Down, Richard Adams

When you have a free minute, how about dropping me a short email. We are in Florida for the winter and most of my emails contacts are in my hard drive back in Texas.

Memorial 96729658, Ida Lewis Crannell
Is Ida's husband, Floyd H Crannell buried nearby? A 21 Oct 1943 Mexico Independent article mentions as such. If would be nice to add him if he is indeed there. I would if didn't live in the Boston MA area. :-)

I'm sorry about your Dad. I lost my mom March 9, 2014, and when you say you miss him terribly, I know exactly how it feels. Charlotte

Happy T-Day to you and yours!
And all your feathered friends past, present and future. Thanks for all you do here and all your visits. I also enjoy our exchanges about the birds.

Wow, what a find! I of course knew where my father is buried but I had no idea that a complete stranger might! I wanted to ask you if you observed a plaque from the US Navy on his grave? It wasn't there last time I looked several years ago. I live in another part of the country and don't get there much. I have been trying to get the Navy to respond to my requests for confirmation that his plaque has finally been placed indicating that he served our country in a perilous time during WWII. Can you tell me if you actually visited the grave site and observed the plaque? How did you find out about his Navy service? Perhaps you know someone in the family? Finally, let me say "thank you" for memorializing our gone, but not forgotten, patriarch.
