Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.


Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in bloom
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know that it must please him
Because He chose our very best.

Used by permission. The perfect time for Otis to pass from this life came November 4, 2010.

LaRue Cemetery

Hi, Wayne. This lady's obituary states that she was buried in LaRue Cemetery. However, she is not listed there on Find-A-Grave. Do you have any knowledge of her? I suppose her husband would also be there.

RE: Gaceys, LaRue
Wayne, I promise I only send edits that I can prove. There seem to be many, many distant kinfolks in LaRue Cemetery.

RE: Jesse Forester Richardson, Alto cemetery
I attempted to do so, but was unable to figure out how. I thought you had to do it, since you are the author.

Thank You For The Heard Photos
Hi Wayne,
I have been doing some more work on my family tree and have run into quite a few of the graves of my relatives who now have photos of their graves on Find A Grave due to your magnificent efforts. Great photos. I really appreciate your efforts. Thanks you again.
