PLEASE REMEMBER TO VISIT THE SONS, BROTHERS, HUSBANDS AND FATHERS OF MY MANY SITE FRIENDS THIS FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND - THANK YOU! =)
Please visit the Andrus Family, victims on June 11th of a murder-suicide. The father-in-law of the suicide, David Andrus, requested that his son-in-law be remembered in all memorials, and noted that the father will be buried beside his wife and daughters: "They were a family, and they remain a family."
Jennifer Lyn "Jen" Andrus
We sometimes tend to forget about the many Vietnam Veterans who returned who were female; I came across this woman's memorial page and am hoping that more folks will stop to tell her Thank You:
Alice Jean "Jeannie" Curtis Williams
I just happened to stumble across this interesting fellow's page - he has less than ten flowers:
Jesse Elton McEwen
Here is a lovely lady whose page I stumbled across - she's an Elvis fan, and that right there means she had good taste! =) Seriously, some wonderful pages linked through hers - ANGEL DAY, JUNE 14th:
Caroline Marie "Carol" Carlson Rutherford
This is a fascinating memorial page w/photo and astonishing memorial stone - I found it under 'Unique Stones' thru member Papa Randy, and another page from his site follows Estelle's:
Callie Donia Shoemake Blair
Although I do have the Green surname in my own history, I do not know whether there is a connection to this gentleman or not, at this time - I just came across his and his family pages, and there are some great photos and interesting stories, so click through a few, if you would be so kind. =) Mr. Green was a WWII veteran:
Joseph Daniel Green
Sometimes I highlight a page because of the story, the circumstances, etc. - in this case, this lovely lady's memorial stone is a testament to her (and her husband's) faith, and the love in which it was placed -
Filomena C. Scibelli
This little guy's page will take you to many fascinating links and stories - Michael was only here for nine months, but is still loved and remembered, and you have got to see his beautiful photo:
Michael Thomas Lovett
This lovely lady has less then ten flowers:
This young lady, from my hometown of Chicago, became yet another casualty of useless random violence in that city:
Porshe Sabree "Shay" Foster
This is the story of a U.S. Marine who fought for his country, but could not find peace of mind upon returning home; one of our military suicides, please visit him and let him know that he is far from forgotten:
Pvt Jonathan Schulze
Here are three heroes who died in the line of duty - THANK YOU to florida boy for the info:
Officer Peter Paige
Sgt. Edward J. O'Grady
Officer Waverly L. Brown

|Debbie||So Sorry for not being here|
I have gone thru two bouts of a stomach bug, then lucky me, food poisoning, went back to work...and basically that's ALL I do, go to work. I NOW have to go to MO next Friday, have a Cousin who is more like a brother that is not doing well at all, then back here, and back to work.
I feel like a year has gone by since I have been here to leave comments.
Depression has gotten much better, but feeling kinda low today......so many things on my mind, SO MUCH I NEED TO DO, SO MUCH I WANT TO DO...AND
SO MANY PEOPLE MAKING DEMANDS ON ME!! it's kinda hardened my heart a little, I think that's a sad thing.
I hope you and Gannon Blue are doing well.

|Papa Randy||RE: Your Memorial Pages =)|
Thank you so much for your words of kindness. If everyone on this site were as kind as you, it would be a better world! May God bless you for your kindness to others! - Randy
|Frank R. Adamski||RE: Actor Robin Hughes|
I'm happy to have left Robin a belated birthday memorial token. He had a very self assured and confidant on-screen presence and was definitely underutilized in films. I recently saw one of his performances in the Perry Mason episode, ‘The Buried Clock', and per usual he gave a great performance. Everyone should be proud of their ancestry; it's from whence we came. I'm glad to see you back on-line and hope you continue to feel better. I've enjoyed seeing your memorial tokens spread all over Find A Grave and will continue to do so now that you are back. Best to you, Gannon Blue, and the rest of your family. - Frank
|MaeRoo||Grandma Carol and family.|
Thank you very much for the kind words you left on Grandma Carol's memorial page. You have, it seems, started an epidemic of flowers left on the "forgotten" members of my family. I want you to know how much I appreciate you adding her link to your bio like that. I am always in search of new info to add to their memorials and hope to one day have a very clear picture of who they were, so that they will never again be forgotten. Sadly, the only one left of our family to have "met" her (as a baby) was my older sister.
