|Bio and Links|
Hi, my name is Kris Burns (nee Ockenden)|
I was born & raised in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, SE England, & now live in the NW of England.
I am tracing our family tree, & I am interested in the following surnames:
OCKENDEN, MUSK, PYLE, POTTER, OSBORNE, JEX & KIRBY. (no matter where they are in the world!)
My late Father died of cancer, & his wish was to be cremated & his ashes scattered at sea. I did this for him, but felt sad that I did not have a place to go to remember him, until a friend told me about this site! I now feel, so much happier, and can visit him when ever I feel the need.
I have also started to add other deceased relatives, such as my Grand Parents, who I have linked to other family relatives as well. Sadly, I live too far away from their graves to visit.
I am also interested in Manchester United FC,
(The Busby Babes) & The BEACH BOYS
(Carl Wilson & Dennis Wilson) who's graves I have visited, via this excellent web site.
A BIG THANK YOU, to everyone who visits my family & friends on this memorial site. Your tokens mean a lot to me. I try to say thank you to each of you, but sometimes you may be over looked. Please forgive me.
Words cannot explain my gratitude to my new friends,
* Jean from Atoka, OK, for sponsoring my Father & Mother's memorials.
* Nora Ann, for sponsoring my little Sammie's memorial.
* Ronald & Janice for sponsoring my cousin Alistair Musk's memorial.
* Debra Felger,from Ohio, USA, for sponsoring my husband's little Aunt - Freda Ann Burns, and my Great Aunt Jo Ockenden's memorials.
* Deb for sponsoring my Godfather, William Musk's memorial.
* Purple-Lady for sponsoring my grandparents Charles & Sarah Ockenden, my Aunt Vi & Uncle George Frost & Kookie, our much loved guinea pig.
* Nancy Murray for sponsoring Binky, my daughter's much loved rabbit.
If your wondering who to visit;
*Charles Henry Ockenden was my Father
*Daisy Florence Musk Ockenden was my Mother.
*Sammie Ockenden Phillips was my third child, who I sadly miscarried.
*Charles Henry Ockenden II my paternal Grandfather.
*Sarah Pyle Ockenden my paternal Grandmother.
*William Elijah Musk my maternal Grandfather.
*Florence Amelia Potter Musk my maternal Grandmother.
*William Henry Musk my Uncle & God Father, his wife *Olive Jemima Cobb Musk & their son, my cousin *Alistair Patrick Musk
*Jo Ockenden my Great Aunt.
From there you can follow the links to other family members.
On my waunderings I found this:
AS I LIVE EACH DAY, MAY I DO MY PART
TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND TOUCH ONE HEART
EACH DAY IT IS MY GOAL TO BRING SMILES AND
LAUGHTER INTO A SOUL.
I dedicate that to all those here on FAG, who I will probably never meet, but who have been like dear friends, when I've needed them most.
A simple token left for your loved ones, is so up lifting! You never feel alone, and know that others also know & share feelings of deep sadness & loss.
LETTER FROM HEAVEN
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness;
Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on.
I need you here badly, you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry: It does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go....from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Hello Kris, please accept my condolences for the loss of your dear Brother Michael. I haven't been online for a while, so I'm glad I was here today, for your message. I know how hard it is to lose a loved one, so please take care of yourself. I have also visited Viola, Olive, Sarah & Charles, since I haven't for a while.
|Juanita Andrews Gransby||RE: Michael Ockenden|
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your big brother Michael. Praying that God gives you and your family the strength and endurance that you need during this difficult time. God Bless! I know your pain because I loss my brother last year in June. It was so hard because it was just him and I left. His name was Raymond Andrews and I miss him terribly.

Hi Kris, I don't know if your aware, but my husband passed away 6/11/16. I was a housewife now I'm a working girl. I for the first time in my life have to take care of myself. I work a lot. I don't get to be on Find A Grave as much as I would like.
|LaNell Barrett||RE: Charles Ockenden|
Hi from far south and across The Pond.
I've read through your tribute to your father and I am not sure about your grandparent's. If I wrote on one of their memorial pages, something must have touched me deeply.
Reading about your dad, he sounds like a dream father. I feel I can go off anywhere or no where to talk to my loved ones, so maybe you can think as I do. They are with you always and everywhere.
I have always wanted my ashes cast anywhere, never a grave. So to read you honored his wishes is very good. And I hope my wishes are carried out...I have no children to trust that to.
|Gwen Respess Sanders||Thanks|
Thanks for the info. I will try what you suggested.I appreciate your help.

Hey, Kris, it has been a LONG time since I have been on Find A Grave. My husband passed away 3 years ago, and I have just now felt like being a part of this fantastic group again. I have a question that I hope you will answer. How do I get family memorials on my bio page so that they are highlighted? I noticed yours are highlighted so that anyone can click on and go straight to the memorial. Thanks for any help.
