Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a great site and I have found many friends, and cousins that I didn't know I had and I cherish each one.
Thank you all for the beautiful tokens on my family & friends sites. I appreciate them all.

I am looking for any Sanders contacts/family from Blount County Alabama or any of the Graves family from Blount County Alabama.

I am also looking for anyone with information On Jay and Louise Ivery (Louise Thompson Ivery)
They have a son Joe who passed away in a car accident and he was married with a baby when he passed away - he has a sister, Pat ? that lived in Georgia.

You may notice from my sponsorship that I have a very warm soft spot for all animals. I believe that our Lord gave each and every dog, cat, ferret
and your choice of pet for us all to take care of and cherish until they take the trip to to Rainbow Bridge. I asked a good friend of mine, a good ole Baptist preacher what happened when a pet passed away, where did they go. He replied "they are all waiting for us, what else would a forgiving Lord do". I cried, just remembering how may pets I have had during my lifetime and how wonderful it will be to hug them and play with them again.(thank you Alan, I needed to hear that) Of course I miss my family that have gone before me, but I know I will be with them soon and knowing all the animals I have loved will be there too just makes it that much more comfortable.

If you have time, please visit

My Stepson,
Mark D, Dawson
My mother
Billie Jo Newsom Graves
My Dad
George W. Graves
and a very special cousin
Martin Hasting Graves.

Thank you all for the tokens from everyone they are very much appreciated.

And to the memorials that I leave notes on - I know these things are possible - I have smelled my Mom's parfume 3 times - when I was at my lowest White Shoulders and there was no way that scent can be just blowing in out of the wind. I have only once felt my husband when I was at my very lowest - didn't think I wanted to be here any more and he popped me on my butt, lol he knew that made me a bit irate. I never told anyone until my best friend was visiting here from AZ and she was alone in the kitchen - same place I was and when I came back home she was white as a ghost and told me what happened and I laughed and told her I knew who popped her on the tail!! It was Vince.

Thank you,

RE: New Layout
If you go to the main FG homepage, there's a ticker that says: "Changes are coming to Find A Grave. See a preview now." You can click on it and go here:
That is the new site.

RE: The children
So sorry to hear you have an allergy-related bacterial infection! I too have allergies, but not nearly that bad. Apparently allergies to anything can pop up at anytime, which is ridiculous - I suddenly developed a severe allergy to raw onions after eating them for years with no problems. I hope your infection clears up soon.

I, too, have not been on as much, but just because of summer busyness. How do you feel about the upcoming new Findagrave layout?

Thank you!
Hi Debra,

Thank you so much for your recent Sewol sponsorships - the featured memorial for July, Sujin Lee; 3 students and the teacher from Class #2, as well as Cheolmin Yang and his best friend, Kanghyun Song. Your continued kindness towards the Sewol victims has a special place in my heart.

I hope you are having a beautiful July.

Thank You
Dear Debra:

I am so very sorry for not responding sooner, as I am still not here very often.

Thank you for your prayers for my husband and I. They are deeply appreciated. I also want to thank you for the lovely flowers you left for my family.

God Bless.
