I was born and raised in Kansas. I moved to NW Houston in 1986. I am a mom to two History teachers that I could not be more proud of. Genealogy runs deep in our family.
I find cemeteries comforting and peaceful. Therefore it is only fitting that I take pictures while I am in one. I want future generations to be able to easily find information on their relatives. The internet is a wonderful tool to use in this way.
I volunteer my time as a National Memorial Lady. We are a group of 30 ladies who honor our vets at every opportunity. I also am a Senior Ride Captain for the Patriot Guard Riders who escort our military safely to their final resting place on motorcycles. I have a special gratitude for our military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice as well as all who served the USA proudly. Both of my father-in-laws served in WWII, one in the US Army Air Corp. and the other in the US Navy.
If you are requesting a transfer for a particular memorial, please let me know what relation that you are to the deceased. I will make consideration at that point. If you want to use any of my grave stone pics, feel free to....no need to ask.

Memorial# 161395530 Hi, Jan Ė thanks for your message and for checking on my photo request! I am so glad you didnít find William and wrote to me about this because I was totally unaware of the nationwide gravesite locator database. Wow! What a great resource Ė I looked up my dad and he immediately came up. This will be a great tool for me, now that youíve alerted me to it. As for William, I tried the alternative spelling William STOREY, and he is in the database that way; this surname appears in various records for William and others in this family as STORY or STOREY, indiscriminately it seems. Since his death certificate and this entry in the nationwide database both give the spelling STOREY, I will change his memorial to that, and Iím sorry I didnít do that to begin with so that you would have found him right off (but then I wouldnít have found out about the gravesite locator, would I?). At any rate, his entry in the database shows him in Section D, site 1277 at Houston National. I really appreciate your help with this!
