|Bio and Links|
I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH BRAIN CANCER AND I AM ON DAILY CHEMO / RADIATION TREATMENT. IT WILL BE A LONG PROCESS, OR SO WE ARE TOLD. MEANWHILE OUR INVOLVEMENT WITH THIS SITE WILL BE VERY LIMITED, PARTICULARLY SINCE I CAN NOT DRIVE AND MUST WALK WITH A CANE, NOT THE SAFESTEST WAY TO GO AROUND A CEMETERY.|
WE HAVE ENJOYED OUR ASOSSIATION WITH THIS NEEDED SITE BUT BEFORE YOU KNOWN IT, I MAY BE ADDING MY OWN NAME TO IT. AFTER ALL WHO KNOWS MORE ABOUT ME THAN MYSELF?
Tony and Patricia (Logan) were married in 1961.
Upon retirement from the Army, Tony pursued a career in Industrial Security management.
Fully retired we enjoy many things we did not have time for during the working days, like golfing, stained glassworks, as well other projects such as Find-a-Grave, volunteer at our church, as well enjoying grand parenting and great-grand parenting.
Our largest single project, the listing and photographing ALL laid to rest in our church cemetery, Saint Marys, Sherman Texas, is completed, and ongoing as more individuals are laid to rest. We are now focusing our attention to Cedarlawn Memorial Park here in Sherman.
Properly attributed, any photo that we have posted may be used in your family records. This includes Ancestry and published family history books.
If we added a memorial from someone's immediate family, we will gladly transfer ownership if requested, EXCEPT for those laid to rest at St Mary's Cemetery, which is maintained by the Parish for accurate recording. We will however add any obituaries or other information provided to us, after we verify the information to be correct.
We suggest a virtual cemetery be added where all member of a family can be located in one place.

|George Paul Farris||Thanks and prayers abound...|
First, I want to thank you for your sacrifices and service to our republic! Also, to you and Patricia for the yeoman's service and all the contributions to historical preservation you've made both to Find A Grave, and your community.
Perhaps I shouldn't use a naval term when addressing a soldier. I too am an old soldier, still battling a number of service connected maladies—one day at a time.
Nevertheless, I want you to know you have not only my best wishes, but intentions for your improved health in my prayers for you, and Patricia, who at the same time is going through a lot with you, and is no doubt confronting the painful possibility of your changing worlds. The dignity and courage with which your facing your current challenges are inspiring. You are "sine pari"—without equal.
Late of the 173d Abn Bde,
and Special Forces
