I live in SW Florida with my husband but I was born in Ohio. I'm a proud U.S. Navy veteran, and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Please feel free to use any photo of gravestones that I've posted for your family trees or research...no credit needed!!
Preserving a very old stone on a photo is a blessed thing. I always think of the ancestors in the future that will stumble onto this site and find that stone, that may be worn away by weather or destroyed by an evil vandal now, but has been preserved for them with photography here forever.
I'd really appreciate it if you'd visit my parents, Reginald and Dora Huffman's memorial pages and leave a flower for them. God bless you in advance for doing this!!
THIS IS A CEMETERY
Lives are commemorated
Deaths are recorded
Families are reunited
Memories are made tangible and
Love is undisguised
This is a cemetery.
Communities accord respect
Families bestow reverence
Historians seek information and
Our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and warmth are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life, not the death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.
A cemetery is a history of a people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering...always.
