I discovered Find a Grave by accident soon after the death of our precious daughter, Marjorie. She was my first entry. I have added family members, friends, and others that I have no connection with but simply wanted to add them on these pages. I will have more of my family entered in the future. My wife and I are retired and we love it! I love riding the back-roads on my Harley and can't seem to ride past an old cemetery.....I love walking through them and find peace and quiet in them. Thanks so much to everyone that has placed notes, tokens, and have sponsored my memorials. God bless you all. |

That big boy is a buffalo I think as all of the signs in the park say "Buffalo are dangerous,do not approach"...that day was so much fun w/Don (my husband) as he always got the biggest charge out of those huge critters :-)

|Anne Beckman||RE: ~I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS~|
Hi Tom! So good to hear from you! I am doing
OK with the weather, meaning no cold or flu, but
the ARCTIC WIND really whips me! I am not
outside, much! I have been feeling especially
tired, lately: all that work I did, serving the
drinks to the players at the trivia pursuit game
just BEAT my body. To add to it, a couple of
days afterwards, I did something stupid, that
caused a lot of further strain: Anne The Idiot
put a GLASS of wine on the door of our fridge.
Sure enough, later opened the door too strongly.
The wineglass slid off the shelf on the door and
crashed to the floor! Wine all over the fridge,
wine and shards of glass all over the floor.
I spent HOURS cleaning that mess up. However,
the fridge had some big old stains in it, from
when I'd spilled soda, so I was SO PLEASED to see
it so clean, when I was done! Also, a week ago,
Bill and I went bowling with some friends. It
was GREAT FUN, and boy, did we need to go out
and do something with friends! We had a great
dinner afterwards. HOWEVER, in terms of my BODY,
that was HARD on my right arm. Finally, I've
been going through two big garbage bags full of
newspaper clippings, special TIME magazines about
the century 1900-2000 that were "the best leaders
of the world" or the biggest events of the
century" or (still done now) one certain topic,
or person. Also, all my notebooks from the
journalism courses I took in college and books
about proofreading and editing. Once I finally
get these organized, in this little room which is
my office, Bill is putting the smaller section of
the front room couch in this room. That may take
some serious rearranging, but it's worth it.
I really have to watch it! Meaning not overdoing
it, in the winter. After volunteering at that
TP game, which meant five hours of running around,
nonstop, my bones and muscles were so sore, I
could not sleep...same thing, after cleaning out
the fridge. I've noticed, the pain is the worst,
IN MY FEET! I used to wonder, even when it was
not winter, WHY my feet hurt so much, once I was
in bed. So, Wynonna Judd has sung, I WANT TO KNOW
WHAT LOVE IS! She has such a strong voice, (in
a TV film about THE JUDDS, she tells
Naomi, "Rolling Stone says my voice sounds like a
combination of Elvis and Patsy Cline." I'd love
to hear her sing it...I remember, her husband was
in a terrible motorcycle accident, but he slowly
recovered, with a lot of TLC from his wife!
How SWEET of you to put out all of that seed,
for the birds! I love rabbits, so I wish I could
have seen that one, who was helping himself!
Yes, getting that dental care was a big chore,
and I feel like I climbed a mountain, to get it!
I've done some other mountain climbing, with the
things I've told you about. Speaking of, Bill
and I saw WILD, a film based upon a true story,
of a woman who hikes The Pacific Coast Trail.
BEAUTIFUL scenery and a great story: she hikes
to straighten out the mess she made of her life,
and the intense grief she feels, as her mother
died all to soon, of cancer. Reece Witherspoon,
who portrayed the woman, is one of the nominees
for Best Actress, due to her great performance.
However, I KNOW Julianne Moore will win, for her
RIVETING performance in STILL ALICE, which is
about a woman dealing with the early onset of
Alzheimers. SPEAKING OF DEALING WITH THINGS:
I want to THANK YOU, for your support, as I deal
with my health and losing weight. I think my
physician will be pleased...if I have not lost
weight, then I've maintained. NO, I did not
know of the difference between the Catholic and
the Protestant crucifix! So interesting!
I know THIS: God does not care where you go to
church, as long as you SHOW UP! AND follow His
Word. I've recently learned of ABIGAIL, who is
in the Old Testament, Book of Samuel. Her husband
Noab refused to feed David's army, even after it
keep his flock from being taken by the enemy.
David was leading the troops to kill Noab, but
Abigail gathered a LOT of food, and met David,
begging him to leave her husband alone and to
take the food. David spared Noab and later her
MARRIED Abigail! That supports me SO MUCH, in my
being in Soldiers' Angels! My soldier is doing
fine. (He does not fight, so I don't have to worry
about him, much.) My parents are enjoying their
last week in Florida. NOW, to watch the pre-
Oscar shows, then THE OSCARS!!! I have the TV
occupied for the night and everyone knows NOT TO
DISTURB ME! YES, no sweets for me and I THANK
YOU FOR BEING A SWEET FRIEND!!! LOVE, ANNE
|Anne Beckman||Hi Tom, Keeping Warm?|
Hi Tom, just a quick note to say hell0 ad to
tell you I am doing well. I have had some fun
with friends: helping to sere beer and soda
to SIX HUNDRED people, at my parishs's ninth
Trivial Pursuit Game, then, just this past
Sunday, bowling and dinner with a friend from
another town, and her family. Her dad paid for
dinner for EVERYONE! My friend and I have a
deeper relationship now: I helped her last
summer, as her husband was hospitalized, due to
a terrible lung infection.
I've begun some spring cleaning and organizing...
also, I FINALLY have new dental insurance, after
HOURS of work, most of it over the phone.
I hope you had a lovely, romantic Valentine's Day.
My husband bill and I had a romantic dinner at
home. he gives me red roses and pink carnations
with baby's breath. I have to put the bouquet in
my curio cabinet, or our cat, Ashton, would EAT
the flowers! A funny thing happened: the poor
florists at Marsh, what a terrible thing to have
to deal with! All of the pink carnations were
ROTTEN, so if any were ordered, the employees had
to spray white ones pink! Mine were hot pink, at
the edges...ugh, they looked lovely, but smelled
like the spray paint used! They are FINE, now!
We danced, before dinner, to the same song we
danced to, at our wedding: it was a very
popular love song, "I Want To Know What Love
Is", by Foreigner, a rock group of the 70s and
80s. I gave Bill a set of Stetson cologne and
aftershave, as his gift.
Tonight, we went to Ash Wednesday Mass, and
had a fish dinner. Would you believe: we
stopped at our drugstore, afterwards, and a
WHOLE AISLE, one side, of Easter candy and
those big baskets with toys was out? It was
surprising, but what a BEAUTIFUL breath of
SPRING! See Ya Later, Alligator! ANNE
