I believe that every human being deserves to be remembered. No matter how good or bad, saint or sinner. Find A Grave is one of many avenues to help remember people, places, and things. By allowing us to contibute I believe we also help heal hearts and at times connect not only dots for genealogy information but connect the still living. I began my geneaology quest more than 30 years ago kind of by a challange. As a child asking questions for a class project. My mother was able to provide little and sketchy information about her fathers family because he was adopted and either remembered very little or what he did remember was to painful for him. When my mother told me that I would not find anything I took that as a challange and decided to prove her wrong. She and I are both glad that I did. I hope that not only my contributions but those of the thousands of others on find a grave bring closure, comfort, and blessings to those who access these pages.
