|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

Thank you for adding this photo of my Grandparents.
I wanted to convey my condolences to you for the loss of your beloved Mother. I noticed today is her birthday. I know how very painful "firsts" are. I will be praying for you.

Bev., Yes, this site offers us to meet those that can relate to us, our losses, like yourself, I found a new friend in you. I added you as a friend on here.
Now with both my parent's needing me and my help, they told me " They were Proud of and in me, breaking the pattern" . Mental illness is not something they discussed but it was seen by mom's behavior. While in college, I took psychology classes in hopes to better understand my childhood. It helped.
Yes, I felt loved by my in laws, by my 2 grandmother's, grandfather, and my children .. Thank You for your friendship.

Bev., i can understand. I am sorry for your loss. Currently, I am caring for both my parent's. Daddy is worse than my mom, he has Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's, among other serious issues. Yes, Bev, sweetie it is hard to watch our parent's suffer. Daddy told me last night, he was ready to go be with his parents, he wanted the pain, suffering to go. Mom came in crying saying she too was ready to go with him. Years ago, their headstones were placed, when my uncle was murdered, and he was cremated, like his mother, my grandmother, seeing the headstones on my parents, brought tears to me, I turned away knowing when the day comes that I see the death dates added, I will feel as you. I have one brother that has not helped in the caring for our daddy nor mom. You had a close relationship with your mommie. Hold the memories you were blessed to share with her. My mom did not want a close relationship with me, her only daughter, nor my brother. The roles are reversing, they are now like my children, and I their parent. When my husband lost his parents, he still has days, he told me " people say to me, in time, ..." , for now it is hard on him. I had the best and most loving father in law ever, we were very close. My mother in law, was great, I miss them. Bev, I am thinking of you. Today was rough on you as the headstones are in place. I am sending you hugs, thoughts, know I am here for you. Your friend, Carolyn
