"To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die"
"Think not only upon their passing, remember the glory of their spirit"
I would like to post a poem written by my dearest and best friend, soul sister in spirit, who is now with our Father in Heaven.
BURY ME NOT
Bury me not in the ground so cold,
But send my spirit again for Mama to hold.
Cover not my life with lumps of clay,
Or hide me from the sun I loved each day.
What few words on a stone can tell,
How I lived or loved, or oh how well.
Years from now, who will remember or care,
Time will weather the stone like it did my hair.
Death will claim my body, my spirit will be free.
I'll sail eternity, love, as I wait for Thee.
Scatter my ashes to the wind and sun,
And proclaim, my journeys just begun.

Now a little about me ...
I was born 9 Aug 1947 in the "Old" Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia and raised in the southeastern parts of the US ... Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, & South Carolina. My father served in World War II in the Pacific and served a total 28 years in the US Navy. I have lived in the Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas area since Aug 1968. I was married 26 Jun 1971 in Ringgold, Catoosa Co., Georgia. My spouse was born 23 May 1951 in Rockville Centre, Nassau Co., Long Island, New York. We met in the Dallas/FtWorth area in the Autumn of 1970. We now live in Grand Prairie, Dallas Co., Texas. We have one daughter born 4 Nov 1982 in Arlington, Tarrant Co., Texas. She was married 15 Sep 2009 in Austin, Travis Co., Texas. Her husband was born 21 Jan 1984 in North Yorkshire, England & they now reside together in North Cowton, Richmondshire, North Yorkshire, England.
I have been working on our genealogy since my parents passed away in 1994/95 in Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia. My father's family lines are centered in the southeast (Georgia, Tennessee, the Carolina's, & the Virginia's), as well as New England (Rhode Island & Massachusetts). My mother's are focused in Pennsylvania, the Virginia's, mid-west (Kansas & Iowa), & the west coast (Washington, Oregon, & California). My spouse's family lines are centered in New York & New Jersey. Thus far, our family lines entails over 7900 individuals and 39 generations going clear back to the year 1080 in two separate lines beginning in England & France. A third line goes back as far as the year 966 into Flanders and Bugey, France. One of my distant blood relatives is Elizabeth "Bessie" Throckmorton, 1st Lady in Waiting to Queen Elizabeth the 1st of England, who married Sir Walter Raleigh. Another was Queen of both England and Ireland, Queen Catherine Parr Tudor, King Henry the VIII's sixth & last wife & only one to survive him. Countries of origin of individuals migrating to the USA in my family lines are England, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Scotland, & Sweden. My spouse's are Italy (Sicily), Germany, & Prussia.
The following are many of the ancestral family surnames of our research listed in family groupings. My father's are Jackson, Bosworth, McEntyre (McEntire/McIntyre/McIntire), Claspy (Clasby), Potts, Scoggins, Hathaway, Butler, Arthur, Dorsey, Pancoast, Haines, Bryant, Collins, Ogborne, & Scattergood. My mother's are Johnson (Johanson), Osborn, Cox, Mathena (Matheny/Mathenay/Metheneye), Catlin, Rockwell, Emerick (Emerich/Emmeriche), Spence, Robinson, Havens, Tuttle, Henderson, Argenbright, Anderson, Palmer, Lorish, Curry, Sims, Routt, Thorpe, Wentworth, Hales, Swinnowe, Flintell, Throckmorton, Matthew, Hartley, & Scargill. My spouse's father's are Sala, Silverberg, LaRosa, & Leggio. My spouse's mother's are Bangert, Amberger, Weber, Holzhauer/Holzbauer, & Helfrich. Of course there are more surnames not mentioned. Thank you, Gigi

|F Chambers||RE: Thank you|
Just let me know when you want one or any transferred to you.
|F Chambers||Karen Brown|
Since you sponsored her Find A Grave memorial, I have to presume you are either related to her or were acquainted with her. If so, I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you. Just send me a message through the "Edit" tab.
|W Sweigart||RE: Ronald Mark Adams|
I'm sorry to have to tell you that I do not know any of the Adams Family whatsoever. It was just one of the many gravestones in the cemetery that I was photographing and entering into Find A Grave. -Sorry!
|usafdo||RE: James Carl Owens|
I am sorry I don't know of anyone who has a picture of it. People are searching for it, and if I locate one, I will put it on several sites about your uncle and email you... Thanks.

Can you please contact me, it is very important about Sgt Owens.
He is buried with my uncle (who is on this site with his grave stone showing them all together).
I am wondering that if the pic I have posted on his findagrave is incorrect.
The 2 pictures side by side do not look to me like the same man.
I hope that you are a family member or relative who can validate the correct picture(s).
There is a foundation in Holland that is planning on a memorial service this coming DEC 2015 for this mission and the fallen aircrew. They have , and they are and have been searching for family members, and kin, or anyone who may have several pictures of all of the crew members.
My name is Anthony L. Destro II
