Hello & Welcome to My
Find A Grave Memorials!

"Always In Our Thoughts, Forever In Our Hearts"

"Sadly missed along life's way,
quietly remembered every day...
No longer in our life to share,
but in our hearts, you're always there."

"Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they
brought into our lives."
Author Unknown

"You live as long as you are remembered."
Russian proverb

"To live in hearts you leave behind is not to die." Thomas Campbell

Alex Haley said, "…where today it is rightly said that when a griot dies, it is as if a library has burned to the ground."

»-(¯`v´¯)-» "Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade, because one loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart, for as long as there is a memory, they live on in our heart." Anonymous

Honor Prugh
Hi Barbara, Just wanted you to know that I have located a photograph (very nice one, in fact) of the cemetery Honor is buried in and, thus, can now finish her profile page in my family tree. I am so grateful for generous Find a Grave contributors who share their work.

Honor Prugh
I would like your permission to use your photograph of the cemetery in which my ancestor, Honor Prugh, is buried.

I have searched the internet to find another photo of this cemetery and have been unable to find one.

Thank you for your hard work and for taking these photos. I appreciate your dedication to this endeavor.

Nettie Rouch
I have made the changes you suggested for Nettie Rouch's memorial page. Is she related to you? Would you like me to transfer management of her memorial page to you?

Transfer of Memorials
Dear Barbara Smeton Jones,
Last week I received emails regarding the Tranfers of my GF, John Bosak's, G/Uncle, Dr Stephen Edward Bosak's, and Aunt, Tillie Bosak Lee's memorials to my account.
Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness, and for your work with Find A Grave. Lynn.

Sarah Ann Owings Forsyth
Hello, are you by chance related to Sarah Ann Owings Forsyth, or her husband- Rev. Wm H Forsyth? They are my ggg-grandparents. It just dawned on me that your blank suggested edit (as in there was nothing suggested for me to do) several months ago, was perhaps a kindred wink? I hope so! Looking forward to your response, Katherine

RE: Welcome
Dear Barbara,
I am touched and awed by the amount of care and work you and Ken have exercised in the service of family. As I have viewed your memorials, I have learned, smiled, teared up a little, and appreciated all your caring. Thank you.
