Bio and Links
Bio Photo The girl in the pic is my daughter. Her stone reads, 'Sometimes things happen that make us ask, "Why, GOD?" And all we can do is to look to HIM in faith, not understanding, just believing. Our Amazing Grace, safe in GOD'S care."
I am a retired Middle School Secretary. I love to walk cemeteries & take photos to enter on this wonderful site. I am researching: my side ~ Roberts, Taylor, Thomas, White, Hall, Gobble/Gabel, Seaman, Butner, Terry, Tripp, Shearer, & Gudgel; my husband's side ~ Wagner, Polansky, Taylor, Harris, Garlett, Miller, Russell, Myers, & Silliman.

We are each of us angels with only one wing; to fly we need only embrace each other.

God Said, "I Know"

I said, "God, I hurt." And God said, "I know."
I said, "God, I cry a lot." And God said, "I know."
I said, "God, I am so depressed." And God said, "That is why I gave you sunshine."
I said, "God, life is so hard." And God said, "That is why I gave you loved ones."
I said, "God, my loved one died." And God said, "So did mine."
I said, "God, it is such a loss." And God said, "I saw mine nailed to a cross."
I said, "God, but your loved one lives." And God said, "So does yours."
I said, "God, where are they now?" And God said, "Mine is on my right and yours is in the light."
I said, "God, it hurts." And God said, "I know!"

Let me come in where you are weeping, friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow such as yours,
Can understand.
Let me come in - I would be very still
Beside you in your grief.
I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend,
Tears bring relief.
Let me come in - I would only breathe a prayer,
And hold your hand.
For I have known a sorrow such as yours,
And understand. ~ Grace Noll Crowell

Stone photos don't belong to me, they belong to the person "residing" with don't need my permission to use them...but please be considerate & give me credit for taking the photo. I keep finding my personal family (people) photos being posted to ancestry without my permission....PLEASE ASK MY PERMISSION BEFORE YOU USE THEM!

Erin Elaine Edwards Memorial

I see you created a memorial for Erin Elaine Edwards. Although she is shown buried with her mother, she is actually buried in Aurora, MO.

That memorial is 52525454.

The family had hoped to move her to be with her mother, but that did not occur.

Thank you,

Chapel Hill Cemetery, Texas Co. MO
Hi Marcia,
I see a photo you posted of the headstone of Emily Blessing in the Capel Hill Cemetery, Texas County Missouri. Emily is my husband's great great grandmother. We would like to visit the gravesite tomorrow but there is no address or directions on find a grave. Other searches has resulted in nothing. Do you have the address, directions, GPS coordinates, or any information to help us find the gravesite.

I miss you
Dad said Mick was sick. I just wanted you to know that you are in my prayers.
I miss you all dearly. Time is curious, its been so long, like an eternity, and so short like I was at your old house yesterday.
I'm sending you a ton of love and a huge hug. <3

Thank you for the picture. I saw West Plains was flooded the end of April. My prayers are with your community. I hope you were not affected by this tragedy. Keep up the good work you are doing.
