Always remember to live for the day.
Don't take anyone or anything for granted.
Listen to the elderly they are wise beyond time.
Take time to enjoy a sunrise, a sunset and watch the bird in flight.
Simplify, simplify, simplify....

I am now living in Cape May County, NJ, and do not have immediate access to NY inquiries like before, but I will help connect the dots when possible.

Please help with
"Veterans Grave Preservation" We are cleaning up the old cemeteries in our country, The United States of America with hopes of documenting all of the American War Veterans buried here in our towns, many of whom where born outside of the USA. With the 150th Anniversary of the of the Civil War and the 70th anniversary of WWII already behind us, several memorial events have taken place around the country with hopes of engaging all history enthusiasts. I encourage all who can help to do so, even if it just means fundraising or brushing the stone a US Veteran so their name is legible and we can place a flag to say Thank You. Boys and Girls Scouts, High School seniors and anyone interested can sign up for community service and give back a little something to those who came before and paved the way. This is our way of saying Thank You and giving respect where respect is due while taking a historical tour back in time. Go to your nearest VFW Post, American Legion or ask if you can help on Memorial Day or Veterans Day or any day.

I am sure everyone will enjoy navigating the pages of history. Photos and stories, names and dates, friends and loved ones, you will connect the present with the past in more ways than one.
A pleasure ...
