Bio and Links
Bio Photo Geneology, Scrapbooking and Photography are my hobbies. My most loved is my family and genealogy. I have been researching part time for over 20 years. If I didn't have to work, it would get my full attention. I have a 2 brothers, a husband, 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren that I dearly love. My parents have passed away. Mom (Anita Miller) had cervical cancer and Dad (Earl Cunningham) died of heart failure. I read the stories about all of the children who were taken away from parents too soon and my heart breaks for them. I am very blessed that my children are healthy. I've lost several relatives and friends to suicide, car accidents and fires. They all are thought of dearly and often but the most recent one that has hurt me so is my son's girlfriend of 8 years, Andrea Lipsey. They had parted on friendly terms and still kept in touch with each other. Andrea had gone to a party one night. She came home and went to bed. Her brother tried to wake her the next day but couldn't. She was hospitalized for 2 weeks before she died. Nobody knows what type of drugs were given to her. There are so many questions left unanswered. My uncle and his friend had a wreck and their bodies were burned beyond recognition when I was 9 years old. (Franklin Cunningham) Not a day goes by without me thinking about my loved ones.They will never die as long as they live in my heart. We had a death in our family Sept 8, 2009. My grandson's beloved dog, Chica Elizabeth Crady, died after a tragic accident and trauma. Chica was loved by everyone because she loved everyone she met.We have had another sudden tragic death in my husband's family. Danielle Desiree Dones didn't wake up on Feb 22, 2014. She was a beautiful, funny, wild woman, 27 years old and will be missed forever. This is like Andrea's death repeated. My heart breaks for her Mom, Dad, brother and niece. Rest with the Angels baby girl. Please visit Alissa B Guernsey 11.2.2007-3.28.2009
4.5.2016 I lost my only living brother, Harland "Ray" Cunningham. He fought a long battle with cancer and truly expected to win. He lived his whole life thinking of his family. He did experimental medical procedures in order to help other people with cancer. He would always say, "I'm okay or I'll make it" He never complained about his illness. He died peacefully in his sleep that morning.
Ray and Sue were trying to have a baby in 1978 but it ended in a miscarriage. They had 2 sons years later who are fine young men now; a policeman and a Navy man. He had one granddaughter. He told Sue that there was a little girl standing by his bed. She asked if it was Leyna. He said, "No it's not Leyna"
His first child that went to Heaven before she was born came to get him and take him home to Heaven.

My name is Crystal Kopp. My grandpa was Lee Garrett. I was wondering if you could make a find a grave for my uncle, Greg Garrett, who is buried, on the same plot as my grandfather.
Thank you for your help.

RE: My uncles
You are very welcome. It is my pleasure and honor to sponsor them. They are such nice memorials, obviously created with a lot of love. I have many members of the Cunningham family in my tree from your lines. I am related to them through the mother of my first cousins, Mary (Grimes) Rahn (#49352670), and I've been working on this family for a few weeks now, trying to get enough connections so I can run a report for my cousins. I finally found the link that puts you in my tree, too, so we are related. Granted, it's distant, but everyone in my tree is my family, period. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't yet entered biographies for my parents, grandparents, and two siblings on this site. Every time I start to type them up, I get bogged down in too much detail. That's one of the reasons I was so taken with your uncles' and your brother's bios. They are so well done and interesting...and very sad. Today is the birthday of my late brother, Greg White (#5057146), and I felt every pang of loss and regret that you expressed for your brother. I have not and will never get over Greg's death. He was 9 years older than me, and even though he didn't try to boss me around, he became my substitute father after my Dad died when I was 12. Well, I've gone on too long, but I just wanted to thank you for getting in touch, and we'll probably see each other around on Find A Grave. Bless you and your family. --Sheila

Hi Doris,

Thanks for linking Bud, Ceil and your grandmother to their parents.

I noticed Bud's birthday is blank. I have it as Sept. 11, 1913 according to the Social Security Death Index and other sources. Can you please add it to his memorial?

Added images
Added headstone images to the memorial pages of Beatrice, Michael, and Martin Domeck. I saw on their pages you've listed them as family members, so I just thought I would let you know.

I saw your note to your brother. I am so sorry. I wish we could have coffee and talk. I am not on the site much anymore but I do care and I am here out in cyber space. All I can tell you is I know they take our love with them.

Your Brother
I was happy to be able to do that for you. I want you to know how much I care about what you are going through. Your brother was a awesome man who was fun and devoted to his people and his life. Our siblings are the only ones that go cradle to grave with us. What a blessing to have loved each other enough to keep that relationship fresh and of importance.

You nurtured your brother and you can bet that the man he was, had a great deal to do with your love for him. Always remember he took your love with him. It is like a warm blanket he is wrapped in, until we are all together again. I believe that the love we shared with them carries us through the dark times. You and I and Linda and all that are here on F A G will keep his memory alive he will never be forgotten, and in our memories he lives on.

Your Angels are My Angels,
