Bio and Links
Bio Photo If anyone has anything to add to a memorial I've made PLEASE let me know and I will be glad to add the information! I Love to link their parents to each memorial or have their obituary to add.
I'm interested about who my ancestors were and how they may have influenced who I am today. I am also researching my husbands ancestors and am learning as much as I can to pass on to our daughter. It's also fascinating to learn about the many different church backgrounds they all have had. Still searching in PA!!

I found this through a friend:
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Mandilla/Mandella Kinneman 144866995
According to the Obit on her son Jacob Memorial# 108908785 her name was Mandella. The Mandilla was probably a Nickname.

Thanks for checking.

RE: Samantha Agins
Thank you Laura for her obituary. What a remarkable young woman she was. She definitely was a positive example. Hopefully other young people will follow in her footsteps.

Chris Hyndman
Please add Obituary:

Chris Hyndman, one half of the popular CBC TV talk show duo Steven and Chris, has died suddenly at age 49, according to the Toronto Star.

“It is with profound sadness that we share the news Christopher Hyndman died early this morning,” announced the CBC in a memo to staff Tuesday afternoon.

“We extend our deepest sympathies to Steven, family, friends and colleagues; our thoughts are with them all,” the announcement said.

Hyndman had just returned from a weekend trip to Barbados. Toronto police say Hyndman was found in his car without vital signs shortly after 11 p.m. on Monday.

Hyndman was co-host of "Steven and Chris" with Steven Sabados, who was also his real-life partner. They were co-stars of the original "Designer Guys" show in 2001 as well as "Design Rivals" (2003) and "So Chic with Steven and Chris" (2005) before launching their afternoon talk show.

Theresa Albert, who worked on the show as a food and health expert and is also a regular contributor to Metro News, had fond memories of Hyndman.

“Chris had that special way of making you feel like the only person in the room. I remember arriving at CBC for the show and having him beam his brilliant smile and a ‘Hey gorgeous!’” Albert recalled.

“Chris always set the tone of the show from the minute of arrival as a cheery place to be. I could always count on him for comic relief when things were showbiz intense!” she added.
