Hi! Please take a moment to stop by and visit my Dad, he died June 13, 2013 and I miss him terribly. |
Thank you so much to everyone who leaves flowers for Dad! It means a lot to me to know he's remembered.
A coworker of mine, Shari died suddenly Oct 16, 2014. She was a wonderful woman and it's such a shock to everyone who knew her.
If you have a few moments, stop on by to visit some of my family, they're all very dear to me!
Grandma and Grandpa Gantley, I can't believe they've been gone so long. Aunt Eileen, too, who was total awesomesauce. Jeff was married to my cousin, he was always a lot of fun and we were shocked when he left us so suddenly.
Sissy was my sweetheart's sister, she left them far too soon. He and his mom speak of Sissy so often it's like I knew her, and she's sorely missed. His Grandpa Evans is a frequent visitor in family conversation, too. Aunt Lil, who died in March 2013, asked to be added to Findagrave, the whole story is on her memorial :)
Q & Ra are my birds, I miss them screeching to greet me when I get home and the joy of their company.
The Black Turken is the bird in my profile picture
I've always enjoyed looking for graves and hunting for cemeteries. This has also extended to peoples' virtual cemeteries, I go through a lot of them. It's always interesting, like those in the real world. (I should also mention I love reading peoples screen names, too, some are so cute, clever, or otherwise interesting!)
I've visited most of the graves I've listed here and but I AM NOT related to most of them, if you want to edit/add a bio. on anyone I've listed please contact me and I will be happy to do so. I'd also be happy to transfer memorial ownership.
I wish that all the memorials on here had a bit of a bio, an obit, a note from family or a scrap from a newspaper. So that you, the reader, could have even a tiny glimpse into the life that is gone. Same with family links, it makes me sad so many memorials have no links, no bios, no flowers. I have been working at finding out anything I can for everyone I've added, but so many of these people are simply a mystery.
A while ago someone asked me why I do this, why do I spend time in cemeteries, taking pictures of graves, researching families that aren't my own, adding them here, linking and transferring, talking to people and finding out more. Ask me every day and I imagine I'd have a different answer every one, but in the end it boils down to love. I love what I do, and I love my family, and know that everyone was once loved, loved others, and just because they have died doesn't mean that they don't deserve the love of the living, even if it isn't a relative or friend.
Sites that are a huge wealth of information!
Death is beautiful when seen to be a law, and not an accident - It is as common as life.
~Henry David Thoreau
Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
~1 Corinthians 15:55
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
~ John 15:13
Death is a delightful hiding place for weary men.
"Mayst thou rest soundly and quietly, and may the light turf lie easy on thy bones."
"My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today."
~Richard Adams, Watership Down
It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch, but stopped for a moment to watch his rabbits and to try to get used to the extraordinary feeling that strength and speed were flowing inexhaustibly out of him into their sleek young bodies and healthy senses. "You needn't worry about them," said his companion. "They'll be all right--and thousands like them. If you'll come along, I'll show you what I mean." He reached the top of the bank in a single, powerful leap. Hazel followed; and together they slipped away, running easily down through the wood, where the first primroses were beginning to bloom.
~Watership Down, Richard Adams

Wow, what a find! I of course knew where my father is buried but I had no idea that a complete stranger might! I wanted to ask you if you observed a plaque from the US Navy on his grave? It wasn't there last time I looked several years ago. I live in another part of the country and don't get there much. I have been trying to get the Navy to respond to my requests for confirmation that his plaque has finally been placed indicating that he served our country in a perilous time during WWII. Can you tell me if you actually visited the grave site and observed the plaque? How did you find out about his Navy service? Perhaps you know someone in the family? Finally, let me say "thank you" for memorializing our gone, but not forgotten, patriarch.
|FROM OUR HEARTS||thank u dear friend|
for your support and helping warren reach the 3000 mark by new years.
|Jeffrey Jerrett||Dean Halsey|
You should delete your entry for Dean Halsey 129988804 because he is buried in Michigan and already has an entry by someone else 116220805.
That one is correct because his father Edward mentions Dean being in Michigan.

Hi, I'm 4th cousins, once removed with Esther Pitcher Gantley. Would love to find out more about your family line to add to my family tree.
Please contact me, email@example.com
Thank You so much,
|Rosie♥Mooch||RE: Thank you|
You are very welcome. I was happy to put Q Bird on "Moochie's" page for his Angel Day. Rosie
|Traci's Mom||Token you left for Traci Fields|
Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,260 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is a little over a week away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much.
I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,
"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".
Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.
GOD, bless them all, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.
We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. I will try to get to everyone's site and leave a flower/token for at least one of their loved ones. However, there are so many of you, it will take me a while.
Sharon (Traci's mom)
Thank you for visiting the memorial of my beloved Dad. Mario.

You are most welcome. I feel close to you through our shared love for our feathered friends.
|Traci's Mom||Token you left for Traci Fields|
thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.
I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th.
I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.
I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!
Sharon (Traci's mom)
UPDATE: I just check Traci's memorial and she has a total of 5,134 flowers. You have helped go well beyond my goal.
GOD bless you.
