Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am glad to be a member of
I work with our local historical museum and
library and I love working with historical records. I have found several of my immediate family who were not on the site and have been
busy trying to get them included.

I have lost my TWO precious SONS who were GONE TOO SOON and so this is especially close to my heart. I love and Miss them every single day.

This site is so full of loving, caring people.
Thanks to everyone who stops by and leaves flowers. I try to send thank you notes, but sometimes I miss someone. Bless Each and Everyone of You.


A very special thanks for sponsorships of my memorials by:

Matthew Jenkins: For both my sons, James Russell and Raymond Dean Coley, and my brother, Douglas T.Smith.

In Loving Memory Maggie: for my husband Donald Kinder.

Delita: For my Dad Arthur Eugene Smith and my Mother Lucile T. Smith.

Celestia Kemp Gates: For my great grandfather Lauritz Smith

Noname: For sponsoring my step-son Baby Boy Coley

Sniksnak: For sponsoring our Peaches Kinder
and Baby Smith

Liberty (loves) Marty for sponsoring my sister-in-law Beth Johnston and my nephew Gary Douglas Smith

Saralyn: For sponsoring our dear sweet Gypsy Doyle

Diana McDevitt Eyler for sponsoring our dear Pepper and Shotsey Coley.

RE: Question
Esther, I can't imagine you placing anything offensive on their memorials; you are too sensitive and kind.

Thank you for leaving tokens for everyone on my monthly virtual cemetery lists every day as well; you're really incredible.

As long as you don't put Christian markings on the Holocaust memorials, I can't imagine you leaving anything I could ever consider offensive. Personally, those don't offend me, but I'm only thinking of how they must have felt, not understanding that "you know who" (I used his name in a message once and the whole message was blocked!) was certainly not acting in the name of any true Christian principles.

Thank you again for your continued thoughtfulness.

Thinking of You
Just a quick note to let you know how much I think of you each day. I haven't been so good in e-mailing but I think of you each day.

Will send an e-mail soon.
Take care dear one,

Hi and Hugs =)
Dear Esther,
I just want to stop by and tell you that I do see you visiting my pages (my many, many pages!), and I appreciate each and every token. So many of my friends on here have pretty much figured out that I am not the greatest at immediately reciprocating with tokens and thank yous, and yet they continue to visit, not expecting a thing in return... Very, very sweet...Gannon and I hope that all is well with you and yours. =) We have been pretty booked with dr. stuff again, and as a matter of fact will have UCSF San Francisco for two days next week, and as soon as we get out of there, Gannon has a separate specialist on this side of the Golden Gate. That's after I had drs. today who took so much bloodwork that I finally said, "Come on, already!!!" ha! What do they expect to keep Gannon me upright and walking??? =) Anyhow, it is always an honor to visit your pages, and I am always humbled to see your name on my own memorials...Take good care of yourself and remember that you're in our prayers. Love and Light, RCP and Gannon Blue

RE: Lucille Bailey Smith
Adding the obits is fine with me. One can read the typewritten message just as well as me typing the whole thing in. Thanks for your help. My husband will be grateful as well.

Thank you
Hi, I wanted to personally thank you for remembering Fuzzy Chadbourne on her Angel Day. All these years later, and I still miss her so much. Thank you for your kindness. :)

Dearest Esther,
Thanks so much for remembering my sons. I know your pain and just wanted you to know that I share it with you every day. There is something about Ray and Jim that reminds me so much of Danny. It is as though they are kindred spirits. In my heart it feels as though they are my boys too. Also remembering your much loved and missed Don, who I know was such a dear,loving man. I too am having a difficult time right now, as you know so well, but just wanted to tell you how much your love, kindness and support has meant to me. You are so often in my thoughts.

Much love,
