Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Washington, DC, I have a PhD in Romance Languages from Princeton University (whose mascot is the tiger). I wrote my dissertation on Andre Breton. France is my second home and I often travel there. French cemeteries are very different from American ones. I have traveled to every continent (even Antarctica) except Australia. I enjoy visiting cemeteries and paying homage to the great souls who have made life beautiful.

I began by writing "famous bios" for Find A Grave while recuperating from a broken foot. Then I added memorials of my parents and parents-in-law. This opened the gates to an amazing set of new friends from around the world who have visited my family's sites and given me the opportunity of honoring their dear ones. The kindness, caring, generosity and concern of Find A Grave members have been extraordinary. I am especially grateful to Edda Meinikat for so generously sponsoring my mother's memorial as well as my mother-in-law's site. Three such lovely women would certainly have been friends had they known each other on Earth. I am also thankful for the friendship of Janet, the "Cape Codder," for sponsoring the memorials of my father John Stanford Stultz and a special member of my husband's family, Sister Mary Roddenbery. My favorite Find A Grave "cousin", Alice Morton, kindly sponsored my dear father-in-law, Thaddeus Roddenbery. Then Reilly, my friend in Ireland, sponsored the site of my Irish great-grandfather. The circle of kindness spread even wider when Seagull sponsored my Aunt Indie Gutman on the eve of her 109th birthday. The depth and breadth of my gratitude have grown ever deeper and wider.

RE: Andre Breton
Hi Janice,

I have a calendar that I write the names of who is having a birthday so I do not forget to add a tribute. Nice to hear from you.

Best wishes,

RE: Sgt George Hogan
Hi Janice,
it was my pleasure to remember Sgt Hogan.
Today is the start of the week that I find the hardest to cope with.
My Dad died 32 years ago today, Mum would have been 92 on the 19th & she will have left us 6 years ago on the 20th.
My daughter was 28 this week, so later today we are going over for a BBQ. We are having a heat wave at the moment so it should be good fun.
Trust all is well with you & yours.
Your friend from across the seas,
Kris, UK.
