I am a Lee County Mississippi native, born in Tupelo and lived in Mooreville, attended and graduated from Ole Miss and worked in Tupelo for many years. I left Mississippi in 1998 and moved to Birmingham, Al in 1998 and lived and worked there until April of this year, 2017 when my Mom began having some health problems. I wanted to be with her so I moved back here to the Tupelo area in March 2017 to be close to Mom.

Everything that could be done I believe was done, and unfortunately my Mom passed away on May 23, 2017 and I am now living here in Lee Co., MS full time. My immediate plans are to live here so I've been full circle and am now "back home". I just miss Mom so much and am trying to get through this very difficult time, the most painful experience that I have ever been through.

I have always enjoyed visiting gravesites and one day stumbled upon 'Find A Grave' and have been hooked ever since that first day. I enjoy researching and memorializing those who are no longer with us and trying to post accurate and up to date information on each person that I have the privilege of getting to know.

My immediate family members are those who have the maiden or last names of 'Lucas', 'Hood', 'Montgomery', 'Markham',
'Brown', 'Comer', 'Keith' and 'Harris', along with
a few others.

All of those who are relatives of mine, I certainly try to get those posted as soon as possible. If you created/posted these but are not a relative and you don't mind transferring those to me, I would be so very appreciative of that. It would mean so much. Most of them I think that I already manage but if you could help me with those that would be of interest to me, please let me know.

Thank you and if I can be of any assistance to you in any way, please leave me a message and I will respond to you and do my best to assist you.

Thank you so much.
