Sadly, Silent Spirits has passed away. Please consider visiting their Find a Grave memorial page and leaving some virtual flowers. Their enthusiasm for cemeteries and willingness to help future generations lives on through their contributions to Find a Grave.
Here I am safe and snug in my mother's arms, at age 4 months. This is my favorite photo of my mother at age 18, she was so beautiful. This was on Easter Sunday.
I was born in Atlanta and have lived in Stone Mountain, and Gwinnett County for all of my life. I am married to a wonderful man and we have two grown sons and one little grandson. The F.A.G. website has brought me enormous comfort in helping deal with and finally accepting the deaths of both my parents.
I like exploring cemeteries, especially the old church cemeteries. There is so much to be learned there.
I enjoy visiting the memorials on this site and leaving notes and flowers. The tributes are so touching and heartfelt.
If you have the time I would appreciate flowers and notes for my beloved parents.
I also want to thank each of you for the beautiful tributes you have left at my parents memorials and also at other memorials I have posted. They mean so much to me.
