Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became involved with Find A Grave while looking for information about my family tree, when I was linked with this web site and saw my father's head stone which I hadn't seen. I was also able to find other family members that are still with us that I was able to connect with.

Thank you to all who have left tributes to my family and friends:
My Father Paul Waldrop
My Mother Glenda Mesler
My Father-in-law Richard T Highwood Sr.
My Cats and my Students

Special thank you to Maggieღ (#47733183) for teaching me how to add music and video tributes and to David Woody (#46846767) for creating my father's page and transferring his page to me in the beginning.

These words are so true about our loved one's:
Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us everyday,
Unseen, unheard,
but always near,
Still loved,
Still missed,
And very dear.

‘Gone but not forgotten’
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our hearts,
which never can be filled.
God in His wisdom has recalled,
the boon his love had given,
And though their bodies slumbers here,
their souls are safe in Heaven.

This is a poem that I stumbled upon from Neil B (John 3:16) (#46794418) (the author is unknown):

Always a silent hurt,
many a silent tear,
but always a beautiful memory
of one we loved so dear.

God gave us strength to bear it,
and courage to take the blow,
but what it meant to lose you one will ever know.

"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 glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight,
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep."
(An American Indian)

?Do not stand by my grave and weep ?

"Death changes everything! Time changes nothing...I still miss the sound of your voice, the wisdom in your advice, the stories of your life and just being in your presence. So no, time changes nothing, I miss you as much today as I did the day you died. I just miss you."-Unknown

RE: Lloyd Andrew
Thanks. Apparently his name wasn't added to the Niche because a photo was taken of that in March of 2015 and his name wasn't shown. Sorry I bothered you. So far I have had deleted over 80 memorials from the mausoleum because services are held there but burial does not take place there. I have about 50 remaining memorials. I'll try not to bother you again.

Valencia’s Angelversary is and always will be a difficult day for me and my family. Seeing your support, your Angel Day tributes and the beautiful and heartfelt message…. just makes it a bit easier and bearable. Wish I could give much more than just a thank you note for your remembrance of of my daughter, Valencia’s Angel Day.

From my heart, Yo
