Bio and Links
Bio Photo A Very Special Thank You to my FAG friends Joyce for adding a musical link of "Last Date" to my father-in-laws FAG page, and to Patty Valentino, Beverly Vaughn and Sue (Daddy's Girl) for sponsoring family members pages and their many visits. Also a very special "Thank You" to them and everyone else that goes the extra step to leave my parents a token on my grandparents FAG page. Your kindness does not go unnoticed. And I must add that Patty leaves some of the most beautiful tokens and sweetest notes.


My intentions are not to disrespect anyone living or deceased. Myself, like most people on FAG add information for personal reasons, genealogy purposes, and to preserve our past for future generations.


Sometimes there are mistakes in the cemetery records that we document, sometimes we make a typo mistake. It happens! I will correct my mistakes if you will let me know. FAG is like a big puzzle that we all work on together. If you do your part, the puzzle starts fitting together


I started on Find A Grave on a mission to find out information on my Grandmother(Dollie Coffer Apple)and her family, I am at the same place now that I started, but hopefully that will change one day. Along the way I hope to help create a historical recording of those who have passed, especially for those with nothing but their name written on a piece of paper somewhere noting their final resting place. Hopefully my effort will help with not letting them be lost forever.

THANK YOU to all of you for your many kind visits and messages. I so very much appreciate our wonderful family here at Find-a-Grave and every visit and token left at my family FAG sites! I would like to say very special "Thank You" to Patty Valentino. Patty makes many many visits to my family members and leaves some of the sweetest notes. It really makes my day to see she has made visits to family members.

Remember me as you pass by,
As you are so was I.
As I am you soon will be.
Prepare in Life for Eternity.


If you come across an Angel..

Every day, in the world around us, real-life angels are doing the things they do... and bringing more smiles to the world around them.

Real-life angels build bridges instead of walls. They don't play hide-and-seek with the truth, and they don't have hidden agendas. They tend to be the only ones who understand what you're going through. if they sense that you're hurting, they do whatever they can to help you.

Real-life angels understand difficulties and always give the benefit of the doubt. They don't hold others up to the standards they can't live by themselves. Real-life angels are what "inner beauty" is all about.

Real-life angels don't hold things against you; the only thing they hold... is you. They take your hand in theirs when you could use a little reassurance. They walk beside you when you could do with a little guidance and direction in your life. And they support you in your attempts
to do what is right.

Real-life angels multiply your smiles and add to your integrity. They make you feel like, "Hey, I really am somebody who matters." Then they quietly prove to you how beautiful and true that feeling really is.

If you come across an angel like this, you are one of the luckiest people of all.

If someone in your life is wonderfully like an angel to you, it's important to let them know. It's the nicest compliment you could ever give... in all the days of your life and in all the years that you live.
- Douglas Pagels

Time may hide our sadness like a smile can hide a tear, but memories last forever no matter how many years
When the tears start falling and you dont know what to do, Think of all the tender moments your Angel spent with you

Harkey & Morrill @ Forest Lawn
Hi Mary, I've updated the memorials with the bio info you provided, and also added some links to family members that I could find. Please note that our photo volunteers worked very quickly to get photos updated for these, and I know they would appreciate a note of thanks. On the Verna Rae Morrill Harkey links to parents, the owner of the memorial has not yet responded, but the requests were sent in, and C. Bryan added photos to her parents, Verne (see 94613582) & Rachel.
Please, double check that these are the correct people and links, as I only did a preliminary search of data easily available to me.
Best wishes for your searches and postings.

RE: Visits

Good afternoon, my dearest friend Mary,

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, but you know that I'm always sitting on my brains, right?...LOL.
I also love seeing your visits to the Find A Grave family members, and I miss you when you're not here. You are certainly a Blessing to me, and to everyone else here too, Mary.
How is the newest member of your family: Jonathan Lee Apple? He must be getting really big and beautiful.
Hope your week is going really great.

With Blessings and Love, always,
Patty :)
