Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired from I.C.E. (Immigration and Custom Enforcement Agent) in August 2003 with 33 years as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer. Living in Rocky Mount North Carolina January 2006 to present. Lived in Miami 16 years where I studied at Miami Dade College to be a Funeral Director, which is why I see the importance of this site. I was born August 4, in St. Louis Missouri but raised in Everett, Massachusetts.
I have lost my entire family and friends to the Heavens, which is why I joined Find a Grave so I could stay close and help contribute information from my area. Found this site to be very informative, interesting, and helpful for others in finding their love ones, plus meeting so many nice people and becoming friends with some. I am a 32nd degree mason with the Washington Masonic lodge in Massachusetts and hope soon to join the Knights Templar. Mostly all the entries that I have without photos, are graves I had found on the side of the road or in the woods where they would be forgotten and I can't let that happen.
My Virtual Cemeteries consist of my family, friends, and others whom I admire in the arts. If you can get by, Thank you so much.

A thank you so very much for sponsoring my family goes to -- God Bless You! Barb in Missouri, Karen (Flowers from my heart), "Bev" Hugs from the Heart, Kathleen, Renee Rybanski, Jerry (JWT), Frances Flick, Karen, Brooke 2 and Family Ties. Ten very special people.

In case anyone was wondering about my friend's list, I have it elsewhere and you are on it.

Woodson Boykin
You have the memorial for Councel Boykin in the John W Peele Cemetery, and in the bio it says he was Great Grandfather Woodson's brother. It's not important, just checking.

RE: Hi Andy
Hello Michael, it is always a pleasure to hear from you. Yes, you are right. I think your best friend, Michael, and Gina Bean were seperated at birth! They shared the same vices that eventually caught up with them. However, we all have vices. Lately, mine has been sweets and too much food.
