~ Please visit my mother ~ Gina Di Nardo

In December of 2005 my mother moved from New York to California to live with us since she wasn't able to live alone any longer. She was with us for two weeks before she passed away from heart problems. Those were the best two weeks we ever had! We had so much fun, even when she was in the hospital. God was so gracious and merciful to take her out of her pain and suffering and into the arms of Jesus. I love you, Mom!

Hi Diane,

The Social Security Death records has the following for Claude, which is where I got my info. Do you know which is the more likely to be correct, as I know sometimes the gravestones have wrong dates on them. Will be happy to change the typo on the date of death & if you can find out for certain his birth date, then will change that as well, making a notation on the memorial.

Last Residence:
93308 Bakersfield, Kern, California, USA
BORN: 30 Mar 1912
Died :23 Aug 2000
State (Year) SSN issued:California (Before 1951)

RE: Ellen and William Alford
(Ellen Fletcher Shaw Alford and Paul Shaw are my 4th great grandparent's)
I worked with my relatives the Decendents of John William Staples who is my great grandfather
(I believe his names John is after his grandfather John Ray and William is after his step-great grandfather William Alford).
I asked if they could contribute money to help me purchase a headstone and contribute they did.
Finally this week after month's of raising money and checking facts, I was able to purchase the headstone and have it placed.

Grandma, Donna Parks
Hi Diane,

Would you be ok with me writing up a memorial for grandma and then you adding it to her memorial page? Or transfering her to me (47438413)?

I added some pictures and added a memorial for my mom and grandpa parks plus linked all of them and linked her with my grandpa meyer. I still have to write memorials for grandpa parks and mom...hard to put someones life in a few paragraphs! Your mom's is wonderful what a lovely woman she sounds like.

Your Cousin,
