I was in the first graduating class of Delta High School in Mer Rouge. 1970. Did you go to Delta the same year or were you in the 7th grade or below? I have scanned the entire 1970 yearbook. Would you like a copy? It should have pictures of so many of the people you knew then. I hope you could use some of those pictures for your memorials.
ALSO: I have a copy of "The Men & Women in World War II from Morehouse Parish. There are several pages of pictures of the Black solders. I have scanned all these pages and would like to know if you want them. I plan to made individual pictures of each man. I'd love to see these pictures put on the memorials of those men.
ALSO & ALSO: Dr. Joe Boyd was my dad's doctor once dad was released from Valley Forge. I took a picture of Dr. Joe Boyd's headstone and posted on your memorial. I also took a picture of Jeannie's.

Hi Mrs. Ada my name is Ashley from Louisiana and upon searching for my husbands family memeber i came across Mrs Lottie Mae Archie's Information. She was the grandmother of my husbands father Delmar Ray Lewis of San Diego that we have been searching for but recently found out he passed in 1999. My husband is saddened but would love to meet the rest of his family. He has pictures of himself in Gemmany with his father along with all his other informaton that he left when he was 3. I hope there is a way you may be able to help me find his additional family members so that he may be in contact with them or in the future can also meet them. I do have a few family members names but I have not been able to find contact info. Many thanks and God Bless

Merry Christmas! Ada,
I am sending you all the memorials from
Star Cemetery, and other cemeteries I have
made memorials for in Louisiana!
Wishing you the best,
PS. I know they mean a lot to you, being from that part of the country.
It will take awhile for me to get them all transferred, but those have been my intentions since I started 6 months ago on this website, I want them to be in the hands of those who care about them as people not numbers.
|Derrick Hodgson||Merry Xmas|
Merry Xmas Ada have a happy, safe time. Thinking of you over this time. God Bless.

|Bonnie Sisson Manning||Ada! Did you graduate from Delta High School|
Although I've lived in California for over 30 years, Mer Rouge is still home. I'm searching for pictures and bios of the Alford / Olive families. Especially, those who lived at Gallion around the turn of the century. Through Miss Fay Bowe and the Family History Club, I've received a goodly amount of information. I'm especially interested in those who are buried in the Cooper Lake Cemetery, especially, Edrie Otelia Olive who (according to gossip) was killed by a jealous lover. I don't yet have any good pictures to post. I plan to return to Mer Rouge this fall with a good scanner and get clearer pictures. Do you have any information on Ernest Alonzo "Son" Olive? My father, Son Sisson, had very high regard for Mr. Olive.
I'm gratefull for anything you'd be willing to share. Bonnie Sisson Manning #47311181
Matthew Clark my Dad...
I want to express my gratitude for being with me during my Dads Birthday. The flowers and tokens help me keep it all in perspective.
I know my Dad would appreciate your kind gestures and the notes you left for me. He spoke often of the goodness in people. He always told me that it was OK to reach out to others when I needed to.
You proved that true, in a world that sometimes is harsh when you ask for things, you allowed me ask. It helps me to know I have many friends that understand my grief. Thank you all so much for your kind words, and most of all, for your friendship. Because of that friendship, hope surrounds me. Hope is life, you have given me hope.

|Diane ღ||Dear Ada,|
As I sit here trying to thank everyone for their flowers of remembrance for my Mother, the words just get suck in my throat.
It was a year of first's for me. I could write on and on about the grief and pain but you all know this pain and it would not make anybody feel happy or different today about their own pain. So I looked back in my life when things were normal and wondrous and I want to share that day with you. Another day of firsts for me. My son's first birthday. I wrote this to him and it is on a plaque that hung in his room until he left home.
I made the plaque that says now I lay me down to sleep, on the back I wrote the letter to him....As I reread it today it has a lot of how this past year has been without my Mother. Old feelings woken up in grief. I know I have changed. I hope as she lays in rest that she knows that all I am, is because of her. Maybe that would not make her so proud, because I have my faults, and I stumble but my love comes from her.
So I am leaving you this letter, as a token of thanks for friendship, and a little bit of insight to who I am. Because that is who my Mother made me.
We've made great strides you and I this year. You starting out as a helpless infant basically stranded in an out of reach world. And now it seems you reach for everything and you usually get it before I can stop you.
Each step of the way I've told myself to memorize the moment and everytime it seems to slip away. For being such a little boy you've taught me a lot. About the joy of discovering pieces of the world I'd begun to take for granted and how to throw caution to the wind every once in awhile.
To be a little less selfish and more loving. You taught me about priorities but sometimes I think I love you to much tending to give you more roots than wings. I hold you as much as I can because I know that tomorrow could be the day when you decide that there just isn't enough time to sit on mothers lap, and if I don't hold you now the chance may be gone forever.
The picture in my mind of this last year fill me with joy and sadness because I know that those moments are gone forever, but I do remember the excitement, joy and incomparable exhilaration of your first smile, your first birthday.
A year of firsts for both of us. A year you won't remember and a year I won't forget.
