Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired from the IT business in 2013 and now have time to look around the internet.

I stumbled on Find a Grave and started looking for relatives. I was pleasantly surprised by how many I found.

Since I have many photos handed down by my mom who died in 2013, based on comments on the back, I am adding links to parents and spouses.

Family: Forsman/Forsmann and Esker on my father's side, Abbl/Appel and Lemire on my mother's side. Location: Keuterville or Cottonwood Idaho, but may have ended up in Oregon or Washington. Originally my grandparents came from Illinois, Minnesota, Germany and Bohemia. Many in the generations before them came from Germany and Bohemia; the Lemires came from France via Canada.


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow;
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight;
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die

RE: Joan Stebic
You're welcome. Actually there are two entries for Joan Stebic. The other entry was posted before yours, and has the correct death date. Your entry has the burial date, not the death date. Maybe you should contact the other contributor and make corrections.

You are very welcome. We should have stopped with pictures back in November but the snow never came. Lots of rain so everything is still pretty green. Saturday temps drop to a high of 7 degrees so we put away the kit. Camera batteries don't do well in single digit temps.
Its been a long extended season for getting pictures but now we want snow. It will turn brown quickly and no one wants a brown Christmas.

Your are very welcome, I only live 20 minutes away and try to do this when ever I can. I just so happened to get the request and was going right by it. Have a great rest of your day.
