Please take a moment to stop by and visit my Dad, he died June 13, 2013 and I miss him terribly.
Thank you so much to everyone who leaves flowers for Dad! It means a lot to me to know he's remembered.
If you have a few moments, please feel free to visit some of my family, they're all very dear to me!
Grandma and Grandpa Gantley, I can't believe they've been gone so long. Aunt Eileen, too, who was total awesomesauce. Jeff was married to my cousin, he was always a lot of fun and we were shocked when he left us so suddenly.
Sissy was my sweetheart's sister, she left them far too soon. He and his mom speak of Sissy so often it's like I knew her, and she's sorely missed. His Grandpa Evans is a frequent visitor in family conversation, too. Aunt Lil has been gone almost a year now, and in March 2013 asked to be added to Findagrave, the whole story is on her memorial :)
Q & Ra are my birds, I miss them screeching to greet me when I get home and the joy of their company.
The Black Turken is the bird in my profile picture
I've always enjoyed looking for graves and hunting for cemeteries. I've got family buried in a number of local cemeteries that I visit often and have a number of graves I regularly check on in nearly all of the cemeteries in my county as well as surrounding ones.
This has also extended to peoples' virtual cemeteries, I go through a lot of them. It's always interesting, like those in the real world. (I should also mention I love reading peoples screen names, too, some are so cute, clever, or otherwise interesting!)
I've visited most of the graves I've listed here and but I AM NOT related to most of them, if you want to edit/add a biography on anyone I've listed please contact me and I will be happy to do so. I'd also be happy to transfer memorial ownership.
Sometimes my spam filter is wonky and catches corrections from here, if I don't correct a correction leave a message here, thanks!
I wish that all the memorials on here had a bit of a bio, an obit, a note from family or a scrap from a newspaper. So that you, the reader, could have even a tiny glimpse into the life that is gone. Same with family links, it makes me sad so many memorials have no links, no bios, no flowers. I have been working at finding out anything I can for everyone I've added, but so many of these people are simply a mystery.
A while ago someone asked me why I do this, why do I spend time in cemeteries, taking pictures of graves, researching families that aren't my own, adding them here, linking and transferring, talking to people and finding out more. Ask me every day and I imagine I'd have a different answer every one, but in the end it boils down to love. I love what I do, and I love my family, and know that everyone was once loved, loved others, and just because they have died doesn't mean that they don't deserve the love of the living, even if it isn't a relative or friend.
Sites that are a huge wealth of information!
Death is beautiful when seen to be a law, and not an accident - It is as common as life.
~Henry David Thoreau
Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
~1 Corinthians 15:55
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
~ John 15:13
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
"Mayst thou rest soundly and quietly, and may the light turf lie easy on thy bones."
"My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today."
~Richard Adams, Watership Down
It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch, but stopped for a moment to watch his rabbits and to try to get used to the extraordinary feeling that strength and speed were flowing inexhaustibly out of him into their sleek young bodies and healthy senses. "You needn't worry about them," said his companion. "They'll be all right--and thousands like them. If you'll come along, I'll show you what I mean." He reached the top of the bank in a single, powerful leap. Hazel followed; and together they slipped away, running easily down through the wood, where the first primroses were beginning to bloom.
~Watership Down, Richard Adams

That's such a nice thing to do. I know that made my night!
Yes the trains are a dangerous profession. I can't even imagine how horrible it must have been for him.
You have a great night and thanks again!

Thanks for the adorable 'flower' you put on his page. Absolutely adorable and so fitting!
|With Love Always, Edith ƸӜƷ||Dear Friend,|
Wishing a very beautiful, joyful and blessed holiday for you, and all of those that you love.
From my house to yours ~

Thank you for all the pictures you posted on the memorials. They are wonderful, sad yet wonderful. Especially the young ones.
Have a great week.
|Gone But Not Forgotten||RE: Video clips|
Thank you for the info and yes a transfer of family would be appreciated. I will send edits later today. Thank you for your help and generosity.
|Gone But Not Forgotten||RE: Wolcotts|
Thank you for the offer of transfer. But only if you are not related. I will check my files for the names you mentioned. The Wolcott's are a huge family. I have over 3500 in my tree now and all linked together. :-0
Thanks for your help.
|Jsassytech2003||RE: Melvin Gibson|
Yes that would be great to transfer Melvin Gibson to me.
