Hello & Welcome to My
Find A Grave Memorials!

"Always In Our Thoughts, Forever In Our Hearts"

"Sadly missed along life's way,
quietly remembered every day...
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you're always there."

"Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they
brought into our lives."
Author Unknown

"You live as long as you are remembered."
Russian proverb

"To live in hearts you leave behind is not to die." Thomas Campbell

Alex Haley said, "…where today it is rightly said that when a griot dies, it is as if a library has burned to the ground."

»-(¯`v´¯)-» "Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade, because one loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart, for as long as there is a memory, they live on in our heart." Anonymous

It seems we are related. My grandmother was Elizabeth Podracky Malecki and Maried to Jano John Malecki. Please email me if we could communicate. Thank you for doing so much to fill in our family history.

Hello Barbara, on my travels thru Rosie K's ND pets, I ran across UR little bunny & I couldn't resist have him join my other bunnies & pets. Just adding a flower brought back so many pleasant memories of my sons childhoods & the lovable bunnies they had.

Therefore, I wanted to stop by an introduce myself & THK U for posting all the memorials for UR adorable family pets. I have taken the liberty of adding U as my findagrave friend so that I may have easy access for visiting UR memorials from time to time & I would feel it a priviledge to be added to UR friend's list.

It was a pleasure to spend these few momemnts with U & may you have a blessed week-end.

RE: Family Connection
We were fortunate here in York, PA. We didn't lose power, thank goodness. I do hope you get your power back soon!
As for the family connection: straight up the maternal line from me, my great-great grandmother was Anna (Michalovich) Glock. Her mother, Mary (Homolka)Michalovich, was the sister of your great-grandmother Josephine (Homolka) Smetana.
I had the pleasure of knowing my great-great grandmother briefly in my childhood. She passed away when I was 4. I recall dancing with her at my family's Easter party just days before she passed.
When I found the find a grave website, I was utterly fascinated by what I learned.
