Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, or you wish for a memorial to be deleted, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

THANK YOU for the transfer. I'm slow to respond, but I really do appreciate your willingness to share. It means a lot to me. I've just been swamped lately.

Please add the birthdate for Billy Ray Matheson: 30 August, 1950, born Hayesville, NC (Clay County)

Billy Ray is my 1st cousin and I know that this is the correct information.

He was buried in the First United Methodist Church Cemetery in Hayesville, NC. He died June 27, 2014 and was buried June 30, 2014.

Mary Louise Head Sprinkle

Thanks for the info for Louise. I thought that I had deleted my memorial because someone else had created one quite some time before her death. I suppose that I had just forgotten to delete it as I moved on to the next obituary.

Thanks Vickie for ALL your HELP!!! I do appreciate it. I think everything has been
added and corrected for Ralph Cooper memorial. I could not add Joe Alvin Cooper to Ralph's memorial. I sent an request to the person that put Joe's memorial on and ask them if they would put it on Ralph's memorial.

Once again, Thanks for the info and ALL Your Help!!!

RE: Kermit Smith 130293314
Dear Vickie,
I would be so grateful for a transfer. Want to add the family genealogy, personal stories and photos like I did with his siblings. He just passed and even though he was 91, his mind was sharp and we are feeling his loss tremendously.

YES, Vickie, I would like a transfer if you would. I just now posted for her husband (who died in 2005. I still need to add more information (which I am to get from their niece).

PLEASE change the spelling of her maiden name (and that of her siblings and parents) to MITCHEM.

P.S. I've been doing our family history since 1983 and have found 32 ways to spell our surname, but Ella and her line all used the EM spelling. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Kermit Smith
Thank you Vickie for adding my Uncle Kermit D. Smith's memorial. I was very surprised to see it there and pleasantly at that. Next time I visit, I will try to get a photo of the headstone to add to your memorial.
