Bio Photo Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.


Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in bloom
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know that it must please him
Because He chose our very best.

Used by permission. The perfect time for Otis to pass from this life came November 4, 2010.

Hello Wayne...William V. Bailey is my great grandfather and I was wondering if I could take over his memorial? I'm just starting to link our family's together.
Thanks, Kitty

RE: Craig Garner
Thank you, Wayne. I'm new at this. I use find-a-grave often to add details to my ancestry family tree, and I figured it was about time for me to tend to my immediate relatives' virtual graves.

Thank you for including Daddy's grave. Are we related? Mutual Brownsboro roots?

I did a little research and see the difference you mentioned. I have changed the memorial.

RE: Velma Dehart, Malakoff

Sorry I'm just seeing this message. The marker is clear. It says born May 19 1926 and died July 17 1945.

I'd be glad to add the obit if you have it.

RE: Otis Rainwater
He was my husbands 4th cousin. If you have other items you wish to share on the wall, you may now add up to a total of 20 items. We had a fire in 2006 and lost everything, all photos and family keepsakes, so I only have what other people share. Thanks for all you help and I am glad he had a friend like you. Gloria
