Geneology, Scrapbooking and Photography are my hobbies. My most loved is my family and genealogy. I have been researching part time for over 20 years. If I didn't have to work, it would get my full attention. I have a 2 brothers, a husband, 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren that I dearly love. My parents have passed away. Mom (Anita Miller) had cervical cancer and Dad (Earl Cunningham) died of heart failure. I read the stories about all of the children who were taken away from parents too soon and my heart breaks for them. I am very blessed that my children are healthy. I've lost several relatives and friends to suicide, car accidents and fires. They all are thought of dearly and often but the most recent one that has hurt me so is my son's girlfriend of 8 years, Andrea Lipsey. They had parted on friendly terms and still kept in touch with each other. Andrea had gone to a party one night. She came home and went to bed. Her brother tried to wake her the next day but couldn't. She was hospitalized for 2 weeks before she died. Nobody knows what type of drugs were given to her. There are so many questions left unanswered. My uncle and his friend had a wreck and their bodies were burned beyond recognition when I was 9 years old. (Franklin Cunningham) Not a day goes by without me thinking about my loved ones.They will never die as long as they live in my heart. We had a death in our family Sept 8, 2009. My grandson's beloved dog, Chica Elizabeth Crady, died after a tragic accident and trauma. Chica was loved by everyone because she loved everyone she met.We have had another sudden tragic death in my husband's family. Danielle Desiree Dones didn't wake up on Feb 22, 2014. She was a beautiful, funny, wild woman, 27 years old and will be missed forever. This is like Andrea's death repeated. My heart breaks for her Mom, Dad, brother and niece.

4.5.2016 I lost my only living brother, Harland "Ray" Cunningham. He fought a long battle with cancer and truly expected to win. He lived his whole life thinking of his family. He did experimental medical procedures in order to help other people with cancer. He would always say, "I'm okay or I'll make it" He never complained about his illness. He died peacefully in his sleep that morning.
Ray and Sue were trying to have a baby in 1978 but it ended in a miscarriage. They had 2 sons years later who are fine young men now; a policeman and a Navy man. He had one granddaughter. He told Sue that there was a little girl standing by his bed. She asked if it was Leyna. He said, "No it's not Leyna"
His first child that went to Heaven before she was born came to get him and take him home to Heaven.
