I discovered Find a Grave by accident soon after the death of our precious daughter, Marjorie. She was my first entry. I have added family members, friends, and others that I have no connection with but simply wanted to add them on these pages. I will have more of my family entered in the future. My wife and I are retired and we love it! I love riding the back-roads on my Harley and can't seem to ride past an old cemetery.....I love walking through them and find peace and quiet in them. Thanks so much to everyone that has placed notes, tokens, and have sponsored my memorials. God bless you all. |

|Anne Beckman||RE: ~~GOOD NEWS~~|
It's wonderful to hear from you, as always!
Bill and I love the cracker Barrell, also!
As it is near the highways, we go there for meals
when we are traveling. YES, it is NOISY! How-
ever, we LOVE the cozy, friendly, country ways of
this restaurant. The food is SUPER, and the por-
tions are so generous! We've bought a lot of
things there: of course I ADORE the old fashioned
bottles of soda, and we love the old fashioned
candy. We've bought a beautiful set of blue
canisters there, with birds and flowers and
several other things. I LOVE the darling clothes
they have for little girls. The prices are steep,
so I haven't bought anything for my little nieces,
but admiring them doesn't cost a cent! On the way
home from Georgia, I tried cheese grits there...
and I MUST have the fried apples!
I am SICK of the TRUMP/CLINTON stuff, also! Bill
and I will be voting for the INDEPENDENT party.
You are RIGHT about people needing "a change of
heart" being a necessity for ending the ghettoes.
I love the wise words, "Give me a fish, I eat for
a day. Teach me to fish, I eat for life." The
poor only need to be given things first, then
they need an opportunity and instruction to fend
for themselves. A lot of prejudice-on both sides-
needs to come off, first.
PLEASE pray for me: I am so happy the day of
getting my treatment is close (10 days) but my
POOR BODY is having a ROUGH TIME: my nerves are
jumping still. Not as much, but they are. I get
a yukky taste in my mouth and- THE WORST- my bones
are HURTING, HURTING, HURTING!!! Also, scar
tissue from my surgeries, especially my spinal
operation, becomes very sensitive. I just offer
it to Our Lord, thinking of what He had to bear on
the Cross. Also, how BLESSED I am, to have the
medical treatment, insurance woes nonwithstanding!
When I saw the footage, on MSN, of those poor
refugees, getting off of the boat, and swimming
into the Mediterranean, with help from a non-
profit service, I was very moved. I am trying to
be happy with LESS: I was so disappointed with
our not having a cruise for our 25th, which is
a "spoiled brat" way to approach life. I was so
glad to get that off of my chest, at the Christ
Renews His Parish meetings! Bill does the best
he can and my family, especially my parents, gave
us a very generous gift of some green stuff to
help us! Once I feel better, I should look into
tryng to get a job. My psychiatrist gave me some
information, which I should look into. One who is
on Medicare CAN work, also, he said! We have old
and new bill to pay. Bill thinks we could go on
a cruise for our 30th wedding anniversary. I DO
SO NEED a vacation that does NOT involve the wild-
ernes and so much driving from Point A to Point B,
getting lost at times!
I learned of Gene Wilder's death last night. I was
so grateful for his work to raise awareness of
women to be examined for ovarian cancer. He even
testified before Congress! Thanks to my love of
show business and biographies, I read her book,
"IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING" years before I was in her
shoes! It helped sooooo much! The cancer support
group I was in certainly knew of her "Gilda's
Club". I LOVED her stuff on Saturday Night Live!
I remember seeing WILLIE WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE
FACTORY when it was in the theaters. I was in
the first grade. Also, the night my family and I
were "Back home again, in Indiana" we were SO
HAPPY to see it on TV that night. Bill ADORES
Blazing Saddles, which I had never seen before
and Halloween is NOT Halloween until I have seen
YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. I hope TCM, which I ADORE,
will have some of Gene's movies on. OH, YES:
He and Richard Pryor were a RIOT together in
STIR CRAZY!!! On a more serious note: I remember
as Richard Pryor was suffering from MS, there was
"A PARTY FOR RICHARD PRYOR" on TV. Gene was not
there, but he was in a BEAUTIFUL tape, in which
he said, "I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE SILLY."
When I knew Bill was my TRUE LOVE and he knew I
was his, I told him of that story, and how I love
hbim because HE IS SILLY and he said he felt the
same way about ME! I have a tendency to take
myself WAAAAYYY TO SERIOUSLY: Bill is the one who
helps me to STOP hurting myself with that!
The history you gave me about the man who gave
Wild BIll his last card game was INTERESTING...
I'll tell Bill about it, as he ADORES any history
of the Wild West!
Finally, THANKS for the REASSURING info about
gallbladder surgery! That greatly lessens my
worries for my friend, John. He will be having
the consutation with the surgeon Thursday.
Bill will be calling me any minute, on his way
home, so I'd better say, "See Ya Later, Alligator!
TAKE CARE, ANNE
