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, or you wish for a memorial to be deleted, 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.

Thank you anyway for all that you do, Vickie! It's nice to see that there are still people out there that can be a help to total strangers. :)

Just wanted to let you know whilst in Singapore I took a photo A.T. Oates' name on the Singapore Memorial Wall. I thought you might be interested to know.

Vickie, I suspect you've already heard this by now but Greens Creek Cemetery which you saw in Benny Spurlock's obit is the same as the Whiteside Cove Cemetery. Not quite certain why it is called Whiteside Cove cemetery on findagrave - residents of Whiteside Cove all refer to it as Green's Creek Cemetery

I just posted a picture for the gravestone of Georgine Oates at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. I thought you would want to know, as you had posted flowers on this memorial. Rhonda

Thank you for the transfer. She was a wonderful, remarkable sister and is sorely missed.
