My interest in the area of genealogies and memorials came about with the death of my mother in 2008.Such emptiness I've never felt and such loneliness. It felt like I truely was alone in my grief,though many morned. I became more aware of my own mortality which hadn't occurred in any great depth.I discovered life from my ancestors, as I researched their lives. I connected from my heart and have felt joy in knowing so many great people came before me.They left such wonderful legacies,me being one:)I have enjoyed connecting with the many people who share genealogy information, who help fill in the gaps of a family tree by assisting in taking photos and giving found information on each.Great friends in those who have touched the past. I am researching the Van Meter/Reeder family if anyone needs information. I can take pictures in Bergen County,NJ. Also in Rockland County NY. Walking these cemeteries is done totally walking from grave to grave veiwing each stone, so patience is required and I do as many as I can in Spring and Fall.I hold NO relatives hostage if you are closely related and wish for me to transfer.
