|Bio and Links|
Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.|
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!
If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)
Here is a link to a special little guy, if you have a minute, stop by his page and leave a little something for him.
This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.
I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.
Enjoy! Bev :)
I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.
THE STONE SEEKER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

|Gravedigger||Thank you for Recycle's story|
Holidays are still rough without my son and grand daughter. Your story of how Recycle Lynn came to be with you had me laughing. Thank you and God bless.
|rosie mcnaughton||RE: your heart|
You are very welcome. Happy 4th of July.

Beverly Joe it truly is an honour to sponsor your memorials. They are so beautiful, lovingly created and so gracefully simple. The genuine sharing of struggles and hardship and the sincere little stories that bring your family to life and teach us that love supersedes everything is just a wonderful reminder to us all to treasure the little moments. I love the story about your winter coat as my own mother often took the clothes off us to give to someone else. Lol. Wasn't always funny at the time but it is who she was and they are treasured memories of her as are yours of your mommie. Have a Blessed day.
|Tony Bell||RE: Retha Watson|
Always glad to help!
|Mary Standridge||Find A Grave|
I have visited several of your Find A Grave sites today and so enjoyed reading each one that you created. You put so much detail into each one that I felt like I knew them when I was finished. I am so glad that we have Find A Grave so that the generations that follow us will get a glimpse into lives of their ancestors.

Could you send me the information on how to do the link properly to add a song to the bio. Trina and I want to add a song to Danielle's memorial and you seem to have it down pat as to how to do it correctly on many of yours. I can't seem to get the link to turn blue!! it just looks like typed letters and when you click on it - it doesn't connect. Really appreciate it.
|Froggie Lynne||RE: Hugs|

Trina and I wanted to say thank you so very much for visiting her best friend Danielle's memorial and leaving her a flower. The last week has been so devastating to everyone in losing such a precious, loving, kind, sweet 19 year old. She truly was an Angel before every being called to heaven. We are so grateful for your kindness in honouring Danielle.
