|Bio and Links|
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother.|
My passions in life are my family, genealogy,
I started climbing my family tree when I was twelve, and haven't stopped yet!
I have enjoyed taking some "roots vacations" to
Illinois and Pennsylvania. Genealogy naturally leads you to the world of history. I enjoy American History very much.
Many of my ancestors came to America for religious reasons. I have traced them through
just about every war that America has taken part in.
"Turning Hearts" comes from the last verse in The Old Testament, Malachi 4: 6.
Findagrave.com is one of my very favorite websites.
QUOTES AND POEMS THAT I LIKE:
It is a second death after you are forgotten.
How many generations does it take, even in a close knit family, for the fabric to unravel....?
Albert Lewis, Jewish Rabbi
"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone." Harriet Beecher Stowe
"And death hath come upon our fathers; nevertheless we know then, for a Book of Remembrance we have written among us, according to the pattern of God." Moses 6: 45-46
"It isn't the date on either end that counts
But how they used their dash
For that dash between the dates
Represent the time they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them know
What that little line is worth."
William Elliot Dudley
Those we love, don't go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
--Still loved, still missed and
WHAT CANCER CANNOT DO
Cancer is so limited..
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal Eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit
Cancer is so limited!
Transition by William Cullen Bryant
So live that when they summons
comes to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm where each
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not like the quarry slave
Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained
By an unfaltering trust, approach
Like one who wraps the draperies of
About him and lies down to pleasant

Buried next to Sam is his wife, Cathelia B. John (Aug. 9, 1915-Jan. 22, 2006). If her name means anything to you, I took a photo of her grave and I will upload it to her Find A Grave Memorial upon your photo request.
