Bio and Links
Bio Photo Don't really know what to put here so I guess I'll just ramble for a few. I'm 41, from Indiana & have lived in Grant County all my life. I have 3 girls that are my world, my pride & joy. I have a wonderful boyfriend that probably thinks my obsession w/ find a grave is a bit weird but he knows how I am w/ cemeteries & loves me anyway. Tho he has admitted that he catches himself looking over cemeteries as he drives by them & a time or two he has brought me info to look up on here. So I'm thinking that I may have him hooked a wee bit. Anyway, speaking of my obsession, I have been, lets say intrigued, by death & cemeteries for a very long time. I can walk & get lost in them for hours tho the one thing that bothers me, is that I always find particular people that makes me want to know their story, which is why I love this site so much. I have also spent many hours on here, & not realize it, just "walking" & reading peoples stories, doing what you can't do in a real cemetery. (I am so fasinated w/ this site.) I also have a wonderful Mother, that unfortunately is no longer w/ us, that I have entered on here. Being able to go to her page & leave her notes has helped so much for both me & my youngest daughter.
In case you have seen some of my entries I want to explain why I write them the way I do. For starters, if I have put someone or something on here that offends anyone or you may want removed or changed please get in touch w/ me. I am always wishing for more info, I would like to get as much as possible on here about the people that I have entered. Ok, I try to write in the present tense because to me that just because these people are no longer w/ us they are still who they were when they were w/ us. For example, they are still their parents child, their childrens parent, an employee or student of the place they worked or school they attended when they left us. Or they still enjoy certain activities or hobbies. Death doesn't take everything away, just that person, just their body. In death they are still who they were in life so I try to refrain from referring to them in the past tense. I hope I have phrased this well enough for you to understand where I am coming from.

Hi Rachel - thanks so much for your kind note and for spending time at my daughters grave, you're so sweet to do that. I spent the day with her two brothers and her two daughters with my wife for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and I can assure you that Targe was in our hearts and thoughts. I haven't been up for awhile and need to do that. With the colder weather I just haven't been on my Harley but will take a drive up to visit her, soon. Thanks for thinking of her and for your kind note. Take care and have a great holiday season and a very Merry Christmas.

Hi Rachel~I was more than happy to add the pictures and sponsor your Mom's memorial. You can add your own photos now, up to 20 of them, total. Thanks for your offer of looking after my daughter's grave which means a lot to me. I skipped riding that Harley these past couple of days.... It was like riding on top of a blast furnace! I rode in my air-conditioned cage (don't tell anyone because that's not cool for a Harley dude) but will be riding up soon for more quiet time with my daughter. Take care, hang in there.
