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.

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.

Hi Vickie--- I am trying to find some of johnny Oats relatives to see if they have pictures of him. I am affiliated with the Humble tx. museum, and we have Mr. Johnny's saddle and would like to find a picture of him. We are planning a 40 year museum open house on July 30th and would like to get pictures and any other information. I remember Mr. Johnny so well. He died the year I graduated high school. He was a good man. We welcome all to our open house. Thank you

RE: Memorial
Thanks Vickie,
Up until recent days, this memorial didn't exist and the one for the children was all rolled up into one memorial. I only had Infant Jays when I visited this cemetery a couple of years ago. When I learned their names I made one for each of the children. This was a great deal of work, but it was well worth it to me. These children deserve to be remembered and honored. I spent most of the morning writing the Bio for Jay and even though I have seen many tragedies before, this one got to me.
Thanks again for visiting these memorials.

Hi Vickie,

I would love to be in charge of his page. Do I wait for a notice or something? I love the picture of his stone. I apologize for my late reply.
