Bio and Links
In traditional Christianity, as in Judiasm, the memory of those who have come before is something of great importance. In the Eastern Christian Church, after one has died, there will be memorial services in which hymns of "Memory Eternal" are sung.

Unfortunately, the "modern" world does not hold very much value in history or in the memory of people (and things and events) that have come before. Find-a-grave serves a purpose in helping those who may want to reconnect with their history (or history in general).

Remembering those who have come before not only serves as a link to our own history, but is a testament to that little bit of divinity that we carry in our souls and that death cannot squelch.

Much of these entries are fairly random, as genealogy and findagrave are hobbies that I only have a limited amount of time to work on.



---------------------

As a note, 2013 has been a crazy year here - we've had deaths and illness in the family and a flooded house on top of just trying to keep up looking after a family and having to complete certain other projects. As such, my participation on Find-a-grave, for the time being, will be EXTREMELY limited, if at all. Thank you for understanding.

---------------------

9/2014

I'm going to try to wade through any edits, requests, etc. in the next couple weeks. This is a quick snapshot of what life does in between:
Mid 2012 - moved cross-country
Late 2012 - close family member diagnosed with stage 4 cancer
Early 2013 - 2 close family members (including the one mentioned above) died.
Mid 2013 - Rental house flooded (landlord's fault) Legal stuff, 2 months of repairs, and careless contractors that managed to coat every surface in the house with thick dust, resulting in sick family.
Late 2013 - clean up & pack up of house. Hubby's employer (big fish in a small town) falters
Early 2014 - another cross-country move + more family changes. Hubby's former company goes bankrupt.

Just checked my "fun" email for the first time in a year and a half - 6500+ emails, the other one has 9000. I'll try to get to all the Find a grave stuff in the next few days...

RE: Transfer
Yes I did, thank you! Now I am just waiting for duck duck goose to transfer a couple of people to me. Robert Shierts & Craig Shierts. Do you have any connection with duck duck goose?

Transfers of memorials
Hi ... has anyone heard from Gretchen? I have been waiting for over a year now to get some changes made or transferred to me. I read that she had a lot of problems so I waited until a couple of months ago and wrote again. Still nothing. Any suggestions out there? I even wrote to Find-A-Grave without any response.

Thanks... Roxanne Davis

2nd request for Reynolds transfer
Hi Gretchen... I left a message for you a year ago (Nov. 4, 2012) requesting the transfer of John Reynolds #8784742 and his wife Sarah Jane (Decker) Reynolds #9808310. I have a lot of information to add to them and links to do. John was the son of my 4G grandparents. I read about your family problems and I'm so sorry to hear this. I have left this alone for a year and now I really need to get this taken care of. Please let me know when you have made the transfers.

Thank you ... Roxanne Davis
