** I will be away from Find a Grave for an unknown period of time. I will tend to all requests and edits as soon as I am able. **<br /><br />My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.<br /><br />If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message, email or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.<br /><br />"You LIVE as long as you are remembered." -Russian Proverbs <br /><br /> &#4326;&#4326; It's Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived &#4326;&#4326; <br /> <br />"If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember.
