Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

Graveyards

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

RE: Cook Family Cemetery
Thanks Vickie. I appreciate you helping me. I've also sent messages to others on here and other web sites including ancestry but haven't had any luck so I really hope someone responds to you. I too have heard it's called the Ham Cook cemetery in Cesar but I hate to drive there not really knowing where I'm going. Thank you so much.

Cook Family Cemetery
You added some memorials to the Cook Family Cemetery in Cleveland NC. Do you know the directions to the cemetery? I've asked so many different people and no one knows. I'm trying to visit Edward Cook's grave. Thank you.

Info about Shirley Hoofnagle
I saw where you had left a flower for Shirley Hoofnagle. I just found a picture in my mother's things and it was a picture of Shirley and Bill Hoofnagle. Do not know who they are. Do you? You can reply privately at pamfreck@gmail.com

BTW I love your quotes!

Emma and Henry Hilliard
Vicki,

There's no need for you to delete your entries for Emma and Henry. I went ahead and deleted my entries since they were in the wrong place in the first place.

I don't know it you might be related to them, but I'm not related in any way.

Thanks,

Barbara Burt

Carl Felts, Jr. And family
Vickie,
Would love to get in contact with you concerning Carl Felts, Jr. I live with his daughter, Angie, and would like to get pictures of her family for her, if possible. Do you know of anyone I could contact or do you have pictures? I don't know your connection to Mr. Felts, and I have never met him myself. My oldest daughter met him last year sometime before he died. You can message me at WVWoman57@windstream.net?
Thank you for your time.

Vickie,
I wanted to give you a public thank you for all the edits you have sent. You truly work very hard to ensure memorials are correct and you very often provide the source without me asking.

I wish that all were as good to work with as you, then this site would not be such a nightmare of rudeness, craziness and just the plumb dumb.

Keep up you good work Vickie.
