Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi. My name is Jana and I grew up in Ellicott City, MD. I currently live in southern PA and have an online gift shop. I have taken up my mother's family research to a degree and have a web site devoted to the Warden Family. I wanted to create virtual graves for my loved ones who are no longer with us to show that these were real live people who had their own personalities and their life stories. These were people who were loved by many and touched many lives and are not just headstones in a cemetery. I read somewhere the most important symbol on a headstone is the dash between birth date and death date and I wanted to try to fill in the dashes.

Thanks to all who have left remembrances for my loved ones. I am so grateful to each and every one of you. You are such a comfort!

**VIRTUAL CEMETERY LISTS: The Virtual Cemetery Lists I make for Birthdays and Angel Days are for my own personal use. If others want to stop by the memorials on my lists to remember my friends' loved ones, you are certainly welcome to do so.

I like to visit those who are buried in the Virtual St. John's Cemetery, where my mother is buried, many of whom have only a flower or two.

VERY SPECIAL THANKS to Edda Meinikat for sponsoring my dearly loved grandfather Richard Bartlett's memorial.

VERY SPECIAL THANKS to Soccer Tori for sponsoring my dear lost Aunt Jane's memorial. You are a VERY special person, Soccer Tori!

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,

Angel day thank you, Matthew Clark

Grief is itself a medicine. - William Cowper

If I would have read this 12 years ago, I would have spit on the ground and screamed, are you crazy? In 12 years I have had a lot of medicine.

A medicine is a remedy, a remedy is therapy, that relieves pain, cures disease, or corrects a disorder.

So if you believe William, I have been suffering with a disorder and my medicine or remedy is grief. Seriously, grief spans out in front of our lives like a highway in the desert. It goes off into the sunset only to return with the dawn.

Just as you are about to except grief, the medicine of grief returns to be another almost road block in life. I have no idea where I am going with this. I know there is something to communicate here but I just can't find the words.

Maybe it's the Mary Poppins version of "just a spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down." You have been my spoon full of sugar on my fathers Angel Day.

You made it better and bearable and once again I was not alone on these tragic memorable days but you were all here with me. Thank you for the sugar and the willingness to be a part of today.

Cyber Hugs,
