Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Baby Boomer, born on August 9, 1951, now considered a Senior Citizen. That makes me laugh -- I don't feel like a Senior Citizen, but I do take advantage of the discounts!

I retired from the Sheboygan Police Department on my birthday, August 9, 2013.

My only child, Rebecca Rose, suffered and died of leukemia when she was "almost five." It's true when they say, you can't understand the pain and grief of losing a child unless you have experienced it yourself. How I wish Find A Grave had been around in 1983 when Becky passed away. Find A Grave has been a true comfort and a blessing to me personally. Such wonderful people I have met here!

My husband is Daniel. We married on September 4, 1999. He is a retired Technical Sergeant of the United States Air Force. He has two wonderful adult daughters from a previous marriage, Melina in Lynchburg, VA, and Sally in St. Louis, MO. I have two wonderful son-in-laws, Melina's husband Wil, and Sally's husband Chris. I am also a step-grandmother to Liam and Mila, but Sally corrects me and says I'm just grandma, forget the step. Melina and Wil gave us another grandchild on February 13, 2014, Priscilla. This is a joy I thought I'd never experience -- being a grandmother!

Note: THANK YOU to all the kind people who have left notes and/or flowers on the sites of my loved ones. I believe that every time someone leaves a message, the person it was intended for knows that you are thinking of them, which is very comforting to me.

Ms. Bramstedt
I got a kick out of your personal story from Ms. Bramstedt's obituary. She seems like she was quite the lady. I'm going to have to try eating an apple that way... actually, I think I'll leave that to her in her memory :)

Your Daughter
I ran across Becky's page, and I am so sorry to hear about your loss of your only child. I have never been able to get pregnant, and at 50 I feel a deep loss of never being a mother. I am glad you found a new love and able to be a grandma.

Take care and God Bless you!!!

Hi Lori;
Hope all is well with you and your family. Just to let you know, Sentimental Fella, a friend and F.A.G. member just lost his dear sister a week ago. Her memorial # is 120 695 140, if you have a few minutes please visit her, she only has a few tokens so far. Thanks dear, and have a great week.

Take care,

Loss of your daughter
What a beautiful tribute you created for your daughter!

And you are absolutely right, unless you have lost a child yourself, it is difficult to know the depth of the pain of losing a child. For me, precious memories and the joy of knowing we will one day be together again keep me going . . .
