Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sharon and I live in Idaho. I am married and have one son. Both of our dogs died last year and that left us pet-less. For various reasons, our decision has been to not get any other pets at this time, except fish

At the time of my updating this bio, August, 2014, I am 50 years old and the picture of me is a couple of years old.

Yes, I am a Christian...Does that mean I am perfect and will never make a mistake? It does not, I make plenty of them and will continue to do so because I am also human.

I am passionate about spreading the word about child abuse prevention. I take it very seriously. Nothing sickens me more than the death of a child due to abuse. If you don't want them, don't have them. If you have them and don't want them...don't kill them, find them a good home with family or friends or even foster parents. Children matter, children are important! LEAVE THEM ALONE!

"When a child hits a child, we call it aggression.
When a child hits an adult, we call it hostility.
When an adult hits an adult, we call it assault.
When an adult hits a child, we call it
discipline."
Haim G. Ginot

Unfortuantely, for the first time ever since becoming a Find A Grave member, I have a rant:

I was contacted by someone who didn't like that I had left a flower on a memorial they said they were working on during the time I left the flower. I had no way of knowing this person was still working on the memorial and would like to make it clear that I would NEVER intentionally do anything to upset another Find A Grave member.

I am not here to be in control of others, I am here to be in control of ME. As for what is acceptable, Find A Grave states that quite nicely in their "guidelines" section and probably doesn't need their members telling other members they are "doing it wrong", in a rude way. I have made suggestions when I see a duplicate or if I notice something is out of order like a date, but that is as far as I have gone and that's not rude, that's just helping someone and I have been thanked many times for that.

Find A Grave enables me to memorialize people in a way that I had never known before. I have made mistakes and Find A Grave has POLITELY corrected me along the way, I don't mind that, we ALL make mistakes, even those who believe they are incapable of making mistakes and want to rule the online world. There is NEVER a reason to be rude or out of line when a simple, POLITE e-mail or note will do.

I'm Just sayin...

I personally LOVE Find A Grave. It has allowed me to be in contact with family members that I had no way of finding before I added memorials that they had viewed and then contacted me about.

I have been a member for a short time compared to some people I have seen but I hope that others enjoy Find A Grave as much as I do and they don't try to ruin the experience for others the way I have seen in that one message. None of us are getting out alive, we all put our pants on one leg at a time. We're all the same in the eyes of God and THAT is what matters.

Please enjoy your experience on Find A Grave, what a great opportunity, privilege and honor we have all been given to memorialize our loved ones, friends, strangers and in some cases I have seen, even our beloved pets. Let's all help to make it a positive experience for others, whenever we can!

Angel I appreciate your concern that I did not have the memorial complete but I was still working on it. You must give me time to finish. I'm 79 yrs old with COPD and sometimes have to rest before completing all my work. Thanks, DLB

Thank you so much for leaving a wonderful flower on the memorial I just entered. I loved what you wrote ... and might have to use it at times! I have a hard time when it is an infant. Again, thank you! Sharon

Tokens
Hello: Just noticed you left a token on a memorial I just put up. Thank you for the scripture. Perfect! My heart aches for all the forgotten infants who were stillborn or lived for a few minutes or days. Thank you once again...

Please remove the "flower" you put on my memorial # 134368967 literally while I was working on it. It is distasteful.
