I am a descendant of the Daniel Taylor Dean family, Millard Irons family, Solomon Maggert family and Johann Zerfass family. My grandmother, Hazel Surface McPhail and my mother, Lorraine McPhail Dean, decorated graves each year and I went with them, thus my fascination with cemeteries.
My husband's family is John Lafayette LeMaster family, Wm. Jackson Hughes family, Daniel Wainwright family, John H. Boston family, Coleman Pryor Eaton family.
We live in Topeka, Ks. but grew up in Carl Junction, Jasper Co. MO.
I do not know most of the memorials I have built..but I always leave a flower because I believe memorials deserve one. I try to remember veterans, infants, unknowns and old, old graves.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE/COPY MY PHOTOS.
If you would like a family member transferred, please use the EDIT and I will transfer most, except for my relatives.
Those we love remain with us,
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade, because
one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be, more than a
for as long as there's a memory,
they live on in our heart.
BEYOND LIFE'S GATEWAY
There's an open gate
at the end of the road
each must go alone,
in a light we cannot see,
Our Father claims His own.
