|Bio and Links|
I have always had an interest in family history & genealogy. Several years ago I actively engaged in discovering my "roots", joining Find A Grave in 2011 as part of my discovery process. I have benefited from the labors of others and decided to pay it forward by becoming a contributor to the Find A Grave website with a desire to help others locate the final resting places of their ancestors. |
I am happy to transfer a memorial per Find A Grave Guidelines, or make any corrections or updates to a specific memorial if needed. Please send your request using the EDIT button. I spend many hours tracking info, obits, family connections, etc., when I post a memorial for someone. I try not to post a memorial with just a date of birth and a date of death. I take a personal interest in each memorial that I post and try to treat that person as if they were my "family". It is never my intention to offend anyone.
It is sad that I must post this as clarification to anyone researching their family tree. I am not a Find A Grave "Troll" as has been indicated on Ancestry.com. and I do my best to never duplicate a memorial. It is sad to know that there are individuals in the Ancestry.com community that would try to hinder others from researching their family trees, etc. by posting faulty and slanderous info about members of Find A Grave. Please accept my contribution to ANY memorial(s) I created as it was intended; to "Preserving The Past" with a sincere heart toward the legacy and memory of a person or their family.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: I am the "Grammy" of three precious grandchildren. My daughter and two little grandson's are my "cemetery search" assistants. They love going with me to locate grave markers. My daughter assists me by helping to take the photo's and my grandson's tag along for the "adventure". It is great seeing the interest they are showing in the effort to help others find their ancestors.
**My oldest daughter, Amanda, went to her heavenly home on October 24, 2006. She was a new bride of only three weeks and three days, (home one week from her honeymoon) when she lost her life in a car accident. Please take a moment and visit her memorial page; ~ AMANDA RENEE ~ Thank you and God Bless You and Yours!
"Because we know the Lord Jesus, death is not the end. It is merely as if I went to sleep in the adjacent room.
I go on being me, and you go on being you, and we go on being the same to one another.
Talk to me as you once did, speaking as you did before.
Go on smiling as if I were still here. Think of me, pray for me and ensure my name is always spoken in a natural manner, without shadows surrounding it.
Death is a part of life and I still go on in your heart, even when you do not see me, I will always be by your side.
Until we meet again ~ life must go on and all will be well."

Thank you so much for taking the time.
|GJ||RE: Ada Roach's memorial|
I am not related to the Roach family. My parents, grandparents, uncle & aunts (all on my father's side) were close friends with the Roachs. With the exception of Virginia, they were all members of my church many years ago. I did know Elton & Doris, and I met Herbert at least once in Takoma Park, Md. when he was an older man. I have been working on some church history, so that is my main reason for inquiring about their family.

|GJ||Ada Roach's memorial|
Thanks for adding the obituary to Ada's memorial. It appears that you received my request 3 times, and I don't know how that happened. Sorry for the duplication.
Do you know where Ada's husband Herbert is buried? I created his memorial using the obituary, but it does not say where he is buried. Do you have any information on the children Elton & Virginia? I know where Doris is buried, and I have made a request to link her to her parents.
Thank you for any information you can provide.
