Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been fascinated by genealogy and family history.

I was born in Georgia, grew up in New Jersey, went to college in Virginia, and have now lived in Kansas, for more than 43 years.

My only son, Robbie, died in March 2000 at the age of 16, and I have listed him on Find A Grave. You can visit him at Robert Hampton Smith.

Today, April 5, 2017, our beloved and beautiful calico cat, Samantha, went to join Robbie, who had picked her out from our Animal Shelter, and her five brothers. We buried her next to Whitey, Mac, Butch, Murray, and Earl, in our backyard. You can visit her memorial page HERE.

Please visit the memorial page for fallen graver
Judy Reed, who passed away on February 15, 2017; and also the memorial page for fallen graver Kris Kennedy Thornton, who passed away on February 21, 2017.

January 5, 2017---I was STUNNED tonight to find a link on the graves for my inlaws for a baby girl that neither my husband or I had ever heard of. You can visit my little sister-in-law at BABY GIRL SMITH .

I also have a memorial site for Robbie at

There is a new page for Robbie's 17th Anniversary in Heaven at 17 Years in Heaven - I Remember You Still.

My time online has become more limited, and I will no longer be able to make daily visits to all of your sweet angels. However, I do plan to make monthly virtual cemeteries so that I can continue to flower your angels on their birthdays and angel days.

THANK YOU to all of you for your many kind visits and messages. I so very much appreciate our wonderful family here at Find-a-Grave!

@};- God Bless U sweet lady. I've been praying for your quick recovery, having faith of our Lord. You're definitely in many Find A Graver's prayers. MATTHEW 18:19-20 Jesus said, "Again, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." ~ 1,268/1 Mon. 4:23 AM EST.

Hello Saralyn,
My name is Katie and Ruth Eileen Mandrell was my maternal grandmother. I was just curious as to how you knew her, I saw the flowers you left and I thank you for that. She was a wonderful grandmother and great grandmother. My brother (who has also passed now) both had 1 child each before she died. I would love to hear back from you. Take care and God bless!

Hi Saralyn,
So sorry about Samantha. We will be losing one of ours kitties very soon now. It's always hard, but we don't want them to suffer. She is with her brothers and Robbie now. Hope you are doing better these days.
