THE LAST SOLDIER
When the last soldier passes on,
When armies are disbanded and militias discharged,
When weapons are abandoned and armor discarded,
Your mission will, at last, be over.
For you know the soldier's secret.
Yours was not a mission of war
Nor a mission of ruin.
Yours was not a mission of destruction
Nor a mission of death.
Your mission was safety, security, protection.
Your mission was honor, loyalty, service.
Your mission was to end violence, tyranny, despair.
When the last soldier passes on,
When the uniforms are retired and the final grave filled,
We will remember all who served and sacrificed for our nation.
Until then God of Old,
Watch over our soldiers and our veterans.
Renew their courage.
Rebuild their strength.
Heal their wounds.
Bind their hearts with Your steadfast love.
And give them peace.
DON'T CHA JUST LOVE GOING TO A PAGE FILLED WITH "CAN DO, CAN'T DO,WON'T DO, PLEASE DO, GUIDLINES?"
Not going to do it here-if I have someone you would like, unless its one of my relatives---ITS YOURS!
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WALKING OLD CEMETERIES AND READING STONES...TAKING PICS OF THEM, DREAMING OF WHAT IT WAS LIKE IN "THOSE" DAYS, WHAT THEY WORE, WHAT THEY DID.
There's so much more behind a headstone than just a name and a couple of dates.
WHEN I FIND OLD DOCUMENTS, ARTICLES, PICS, I WILL POST TO THE PERSON IF I CAN FIND THEIR MEMORIAL. I HOPE THEY WILL HELP YOU ADD A LITTLE PIECE TO THE PUZZLE OF LIFE OF THOSE GONE NOW.
LIFE IS A JOURNEY---ENJOY THE TRIP!
THANK A VETERAN FOR YOUR FREEDOM
The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all. Author unknown
VISIT A CEMETERY AND PAY RESPECT TO THOSE FALLEN
Without the brave efforts of all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines and their families, this nation, along with our allies around the world, would not stand so boldly, shine so brightly and live so freely. Lane Allen Evans

|Tony M.||RE: PESTS|
Yes, I agree with you. We don't ask for anything from anyone but do our hard work to help others in their quest to find ancestors. Any idiot can strip data off someone else's site and pass it off as their own work and not add photos etc. I am presently going through and photographing one of our largest cemeteries and it really aggravates me when these pests tell me I have Rev without a period after it or when I have Miss XYZ to indicate an unmarried female, no first name and they tell me I should have female instead. Find a Grave needs to get its act together, because you are right - some of us may just take our stuff elsewhere.Maybe Find A Grave can put in large letters the percentage ratio of photos to entries so people can see who the real contributors are.

|Spaceman Spiff||RE: Tee|
Thanks for the message, but I'm sorry, I'm not quite sure what you're referring to...?
At first I thought you were referring to the memorial of Hilda "Teenie" Norwood Grinnage, which I just added today. But I checked and there are no photos there.
So I'm not sure what you mean. Can you please clarify?
Hey chick! Finally found Helen Prettyman! Yeah! Been looking every time I went.
Also have the ones you claimed. If you want me to send them to you so you can post them let me know. XO

|Lana Champion||RE: Meredith|
Hi.something happened on my computer and I lost the email you sent with the obit for Margaret Cannon. We had been to the cemetery and saw the grave site. I wasn't sure about the other markers on the site. Margaret Cannon was first married to Caleb. My great grandfather George Meredith ( also buried in Barrets)was her second husband. An old love letter from Clayton Cannon to my fathers sister helped tie a family story together. The mystery is now that I was told my fathers grandmother was a Margaret Rushton but your obit makes me think that might have been an error on someones part and that her maiden name was not Rushton but Grier (I think that's what you sent) Please resend the obit that you have on Margaret Cannon so that I can further research this. Thanks so much for your help. Of course there is a possibility that her mother could have had a first husband with the Rushton name. I have no doubt that the Margaret Cannon buried with Caleb is my great grandmother. the mystery is her maiden name. Lana Champion. email: email@example.com
|Gina Logan||RE: Gam|
My Nana also told us that the surname Gam was actually Von Gam or Gamm , but was changed to Americanize it?!
Just spoke to my mom I Allentown, Pa. She said it was in the 50s last night! Brrrrr! Maybe the weather will rally and you'll get an "Indian Summer"!
|Gina Logan||RE: Gam|
Thanks for your support! I remember something my. nana told me about her parents. Her mom and dad (The Gams) lived in Augustine , Delaware when she was young. Emma's maiden name was Duncan (Scottish)& John Sr. Gam is German.thank you for your preserverance . School starts on Monday here in Fl. I am a HS English teacher. I have faith that God is with our family , and we will all heal in time! :) Gina

Hey Gennie, His bio has been added ... :-) and he is now on the Civil War Burial page.
|KATHY||RE: Alice Paskey (#130867603)|
Good evening Gennie. I received your note regarding Mrs. Paskey's memorial. I understand about hurricane and power issues, believe me. I live in a hurricane target state (although I do not live at the coast), and we also had ice storm issues this past winter, that knocked out power for several days. In any case, I get some of my information from sites like FamilySearch, RootsWeb, the Social Security Death Index, etc, all bona fide sources. And no, I am not related to that family, and although I appreciate the offer, a transfer to me isn't necessary. I simply get a lot of enjoyment in assisting fellow Find A Grave members in making memorials as detailed as possible, as I appreciate their input for the memorials under my management. I thank you for your time, and I hope you have a great weekend!
