Keeping the memory and information about our family members "alive" should be our goal. Unless "we" make some major contribution in our lifetime, most of the information about us is known within our own family and after several generations, the information fades and then it is gone! Thanks to Find-A-Grave for allowing us to share this information with each other now, and for future generations to use in their genealogy research.
November 2001: Since this is Find-A-Grave and I am still alive, just wanted to leave a message for current and future readers about "my" grave location. I have just purchased space for my mortal remains in an older community mausoleum. Old Mission Mausoleum construction began in 1918 and completed in 1954 with the addition of the fourth and final unit. The construction resulted in a total expenditure of more than one million dollars. I have researched the history of this structure and its builder of 36 years.
May 2009: Just received word from the United States Department of the Interior, that my application to have the Old Mission Mausoleum placed on the National Register of Historic Places has been approved!
May 2017: I find it hard to write something about myself, but since I am one of those persons who never made a major contribution to the world, a short review will follow. Been married to the same wonderful lady for 50 years, and we have two great sons, Todd and Brett, and one fabulous grandson, Tyler. My working life was spent with the Wichita Public School system (1965-1996), first as a secondary science teacher and then as a secondary building administrator. My wife and I now spend our time traveling and just enjoying our leisure time. Good luck in your research with your family history.
