Bio Photo I am more than happy to donate my time and effort on these memorials to those looking for their families. I am always willing to transfer memorials that aren't my family to those that are family.

Our life is made up of time.
Our days are measured in hours,
our pay measured by those hours,
our knowledge is measured by years.
[...] And yet time eventually runs out
and you wonder in your heart of hearts
if those seconds, minutes, hours, days,
weeks, months, years and decades
were being spent the best way
they possibly could.
― Cecelia Ahern

Every passing day
is one that is gone forever.
Make sure it is one in which
you have done something for others,
especially those
who cannot do for themselves.
