Bio Photo FL sunset during storm 2016

I joined this site in honor of my daughter, Marie, who I adopted in 1980 at 2 days old. She lit up our lives for 21 years and then she was gone. Life cut short by heart disease. I invite you to visit her memorial by clicking on her name.

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that adds to or updates any of the memorials I have created. Since the edits are so numerous it would take alot of time to respond to each individually so this is to let you know you are appreciated.

I will add any info and/or links needed for any memorial I have created in a timely manner as I feel these are important for those looking to identify if that certain memorial is their loved one.
NOTE: *******I am always happy to transfer to family/friends, just please tell me if you are a relative or friend to the person when asking to have a memorial transferred. If you are just needing to add info, I am happy to do so.

Could you please transfer the Memorial of Stacey M. Blede (99152161) over to me? Stacey is my mom who passed away almost 10 years ago from a heart condition. Thank you so much.

RE: photo challenge
Nice Kansas sunset...very quaint and cozy looking, but where is Toto? I was living on a ranch with those goats and got close to them. They were like four legged 'humans' having their own distinct unique personalities; like a bunch of comedians, very entertaining. It was sad to see them at the bottom of a 75 foot ravine. Yep, the roads are getting bad. I've been reading about those and the infrastructure maintenance getting unsustainable. Drivers are getting more aggresive and disrespectful. I recently witnessed an 18 wheeler sideswipe a car with 3 occupants into one of those deep gutters causing the car to flip. The aftermath was quite gory. It still is tough getting that image out of my mind. Flying used to be exciting and adventurous, but now it has been turned into a nerve wracking denigrating hassle. The last long road trip I ever took was decades ago when I drove from the midwest to Calif. So, your granddaughter is going to college now? Sounds like some great restaurants in KC. When I was there in 2001, the only one I went to was in the Country Club Plaza. It was very good. Love those old fashioned Mom and Pop cafes also...not too many of those left. I don't eat much fruit, mostly only citrus for vitamin C, otherwise I like pineapple too. Anyway, I haven't done much on this site the last few distracted with some other things. I've left a sunset photo for you. Let's see if you can figure out where it a hint, it took a long time for it to set, and it never did dip below the horizon...other worldly, or so it seemed!

I had more employees check the database at Greenwood Memorial Park, San Diego, CA Today they said again that she is not in all the databases. I took photos for you of her husband Donald. I had to delete Margaret's photo request. C.J.

With so many 'requests' I assume you are not of her Family? I was told she is not in the Greenwood database. I got photos of her husband's double wide Crypt at Greenwood. But her marker is also not on his Crypt. Only his marker and a blank half of the double wide Crypt must mean someone is supposed to be buried with him some day. C.J.

Margaret Hastings in the news
Hi Ms Martie,
Thought you would like to know that Margaret Hastings (your Find A Grave Memorial# 74445683) was in the news here, with a historic marker placed outside her former home in Owego - see

I'll try to get there soon and snap a photo to add to her memorial - if there's space to add another!

Robert Irving Robinson
Ms Martie M,
I am having a hard time connecting Robert Irving Robinson to the Yantic Cemetery. Unfortunately, I could not find his death certif. in the Missouri files myself. Could you show me where I can access his death certif, or connect me to it somehow.
Thank you for all you do for

Janice is still alive. Just FYI - Janice's maiden name is noch Christie but Carver and she still lives in File/ID. She married Delbert Estil Christie who died Oct 3, 1956. See his grave at Grave Memorial# 97752084

Hope this helps.

RE: James Gallagher; 48407425
You are correct. I have removed it. Ironically, the correct James C. Gallagher is also buried at Calvary.
