Not getting out as much lately to take my pics but still have a lot on memory cards so working on that...still mom to 6 kids, now grama to 18 grandbabies, and great grama to Jalen Jr...with one new g.baby on the way next summer!....The husband is having cancer surgery on Feb 1 so all the prayers y'all can send up for Ed are much appreciated!
Here's to a wonderful new year to make memories and to remember all those gone before!

Hey y'all! :) Okay so just a reminder.....Findagrave is not Myspace or the Facebook or Snapchat or Instagram...quit treating folks like you would there. We are one in an attempt to share and update memorials for those who have passed before us...don't try to be the FAG police...there are folks already in the powers that be to do that. Be Kind FGS!
and again:

Quick update. We are between homes so I'm not doing updates/edits but will catch up soon as I can! (Aug 2022)

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 17 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama, Leona Toppe 16748257, passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best friend...my Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)
************************

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

update Oct 2017...so the past year or so has been hard...lost my mother, my nephew, and my father just a few days ago...almost lost my husband this past spring...many "changes" in my life and I'm ready for some happy again...if you get a chance stop by the pages for Leona Toppe (My Grama/Mommy) 16748257 , Henry Toppe (My Grampa/Daddy) 16748265, Margaret Blunt 169152121 , Norman Sanders 183894833 , and Bobby Lee Williams III 177025003 to let them know they are in our thoughts :)
