Bio

Joined Find a Grave on December 26, 2003.
(I don't do this just for me~ if I have photos that you'd like to use for your Ancestry projects please feel free to do so... and No - I don't need to get credit for the photo...)

I had been looking for my Paternal Grandmother's grave for a very long time... no one in the family could tell me where it was. Thanks to this site, and Carolyn Farnum I have found her final resting place~! Thank You for all your work!

To repay the kindness, I make an attempt to put as many photos and grave markers that I can on Find a Grave.

If I have added a grave and you would like it to be transferred to you, just let me know...

DEAR ANCESTOR
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you.

~*~ONE FINAL GIFT~*~

Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.
