This has nothing to do with Find A Grave, just a short message from me to you:
For the past two weeks (Aug.2021--which turned into a 6 week stay , I have been in the hospital; unable to even leave my room. In that two week period I lost my husband; and my mother. PLEASE, PLEASE tell the people you love how you feel everyday; you may not get a tomorrow. I didn't get to even tell my husband goodbye , or go to his funeral. I'm not sure of the doctor's name taking care of my mother, but she told me that another member of my family would not be put in the ground without me being able to say goodbye to. Thank you for your kind heart, that I did get to tell my mother goodbye. In a week of this illness, a lot of people would not have recognized her. This is an insidious disease, with no regard if you are big or small; young or old. While sitting in that hospital room; I had all the time in the world to think; about things I could have said or done different; it doesn't matter to the other person now, just to me.
To all that read this please take care of yourself ; and realize that you still have to chance to say I LOVE YOU.
Hi, I AM 68 RETIRED,AND AN AVID GENEALOGIST. FAMILY HISTORY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,AND IF BY TAKING PICTURES ,I CAN IN SOME WAY SAVE A LITTLE PART OF PEOPLE'S HISTORY, THEN I FEEL LIKE I'VE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING. I LIVE IN ODESSA, TEXAS, AND WILL GLADLY CHECK OUT CEMETERIES WITHIN A 200 MILE RADIUS, AND FARTHER IF I CAN. IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE OR IF I LIST SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TRANSFERRED ,LET ME KNOW.
FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTO'S;JUST PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR TAKING THEM OR OWNING THEM.-- I have the only photo of one of my great grandmother's on here. Someone added it to their family tree on Ancestry.com with no mention of where they got it, or what family link it came from. Now it's being added from one tree to another, without anyone being aware of our link into that family.I don't think that is right.
If anyone comes across "ANY" family of theirs I've listed and you would like to manage their memorial's, just let me know.I
don't do this to build up numbers, but to try and save as much family history on these stones as I can. It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the family link may be.
Don't want to ruffle any feathers,
but I would like to ask that when you are sending me death locations or other info, for example ; if you are only going by the SSDI, please do further research before doing so. A lot of people are taking what the SSDI has listed as proof positive that what it has as the place they died .That's not always so.If you click on the SSDI link it states that the location listed is the last place of residence .I've had people send me death location on the new edit tab or other info, I'll add it,then have someone else get upset that I'm listing incorrect info.
