*****I have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition and am overwhelmed right now trying to deal with that and get a handle on it. Please bear with me as I have been quite slow at fielding edit requests.****
I'm Becky and I'm a friend to all animals and most people. I'm an American, a Montanan, a horsewoman, a 911 Dispatcher, an EMT, a writer, a Republican, a pianist, an aspiring violinist, a frustrated Raiders fan, and a pretty good shot.
I have an affinity for lighthouses, firearms, airplanes and most shades of purple.
I believe in God the Eternal Father and in His son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
I love my country and am PROUD to be an American. I support our military. I thank our veterans and those of our allies. We owe them so much. Thank you seems so small a gesture for those who have given so much so that we could be and stay free.
There are so many people that I have a deep respect for. My parents, Walter Maurice Warner and Mildred Elnora (Nash) Warner, and my sister, Brenda Lee Warner, are among them. I suppose my favorite person ever would be my Grandma, Mary Etta (Bradley) Nash.
My ancestry includes Mi'kmaq, French, Irish, British, Scottish, French Canadian, Acadian, and others we haven't confirmed yet.
My roots run deep in Michigan, Utah, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Nova Scotia and Quebec.
I do this because I believe that every person/being is important and deserves to be remembered. And, if just one person finds a long-lost relative or friend from my efforts, my time has been worth it.
One of my favorite TV shows as a child was The Waltons. In a guest appearance as Martha Corinne Walton, Beulah Bondi said it best, "Neglected graves are a shameful thing." I have seen some very neglected cemeteries. But, neglected veterans' graves upset me the most. I don't believe in "non-perpetual care." I want to make something clear. When I say that neglected graves are shameful, I am talking about physical neglect-- strewn with rubbish, overgrowth, gopher holes, etc. I do not in any way mean that a grave is neglected if loved ones are unable to visit it often. Why anyone would think that is beyond me, but I've gotten enough emails that I felt the need to explain that.
If a record I've added is of your loved one and you want it removed, let me know and I will gladly remove it. I am also happy to transfer ownership to relatives. Also, feel free to use any of the headstone photos I've added for non-commercial genealogical purposes.
