|Bio and Links|
My name is Cindy|
. Originally from Bradford and West Newbury MA, I now live in sunny Clearwater, FL.
For as long as I can remember, I've beeen interested in cemeteries. Some people see cemeteries as sad, morbid places and some see them as scary or spooky. I see so much beauty in a cemetery. I see stories of lives lived and relationships carried on beyond this world and onto an entirely different level. I don't feel that when someone leaves this world, they're gone forever. I believe that this is only one phase of our experience.
My own experiences have taught me to make the most of this life and not to fear the next, rather to look forward to it with the knowledge that the end of my life "here" will be the beginning of a new and amazing journey "there".
I spend many, many hours exploring cemeteries all over the US and many times, come across the old, abandoned, unkept graves of children. I "adopt" them. I clean up and take care of the graves. I visit them regularly and decorate them to look nice. I just feel that this is an easy and extremely rewarding way to recognize and acknowledge that theirs was a life led. No matter how young they were, they were here. Someone loved them and if those people can't be here to take care any longer, I love doing it for them.
This is a true labor of love and I get so much more from it than I can ever express.
I'm currently working on a project which will become a book honoring the memories of people who've passed and the relationships they held with their family and friends. If you'd be interested in participating or learning more, please feel free to contact me. I have been working with hundreds of families all over the US and I have met some amazing, uplifting and wonderful people. I feel incredibly honored that so many people have welcomed me into their lives in such a personal way.
Please see the link below to find an article written in the Eagle Tribune, describing part of what I do as part of Living To Tell.

Thank you Cindy for starting this memorial for my daughter Madeline. We miss her everyday!
|Justin Peavey||RE: Hillside Cemetery, Haverhill|
Don't worry about it. I understand because we were hit by the storm as well. I am very patient with photo requests. Please take your time.
hi, i was just wondering since i cannot befriend the memorial page for trista or view pictures, if you could post more pictures here if there is any available. i am grateful that you have posted so many pictures of her here already, thank you.

No problem, I found her, just wasn't sure you knew about as many do not.
Glad to help with the update.

Thank you for the information, it would be easier for anyone doing an update if you would use the edit tab on the top right hand of the actual memorial and use suggestion.
I did find her and updated.

Thank you for taking and posting the headstone photo on Jonalee Beauchesne's memorial. I really appreciate that.
|Faith||RE: Sodder Family|
Thanks for letting me know about the broken link - unfortunately, it appears the site is no longer active. I've updated the children's memorials with links to other sites containing information about the mystery. Thanks again for letting me know!
