I live with my family on the far north side of Republic MO. I have always enjoyed walking through the little country cemeteries not far from my home. I like to go so I can recall some fond memories of the folks that lived around here when I was growing up. Back then it was almost like having grandparents in every farm house in the neighborhood! When I came across the Find A Grave site I was very impressed with the hard work that so many people have put into this. I just want to be a part of helping to preserve some memories of people that were and still are...loved.
