Every individual should be remembered in some small way when they leave this earth. I think Findagrave provides that remembrance. I hope you will not feel exploited by the memorial I have created but embrace the memorial of your loved one or friend.
To all the Findagrave members who take the time to send obituaries, take marker photos and let me know of errors I have made I am most appreciative. I don't always acknowledge your emails but I remember your name.
Verses I love and treasure. Hope they find a place in your heart also:
"And in the end, its not the years in your life
that count. It's the life in your years."
"I was born an American; I will live an American; I shall die an American."Daniel Webster - July 1850 Speech
"Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there I did not die." Unknown
Faith is to Believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this Faith is to see what you Believe." -St. Augustine
"I have held many things in my hands, and have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess." - Martin Luther
"Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another."___Ernest Hemingway
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.~unknown.
Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Poor is the nation that has no heroes. Shameful is the nation that has heroes...and forgets them. You are not forgotten.
To speak the name of the dead is to make them live again. It restores the breath of life to he who has vanished.
I am not related to the memorials I have listed.
I volunteer on Findagrave for genealogy purposes.
