***********************************************I've also got to add bios to most of my memorials. It's just hard for me to come up with something befitting most of my memorials...some are more special than anyone will ever know!***********************************************I wish I could add "everyones' everyone" to my Virtual Cemetery. There's just no way possible. If I have visited a love one of yours, they should be in my Virtual Cemetery. If I don't make it around to see them often, I'll make it around for their Birthdays and Angel Days. It's so sad that I have more Unknown Birthdays and Unknown Angel Days than any others. I've got to come up with a way as to when I'll visit them. Thinking on it! ***********************************************IF I DO NOT MAKE IT TO YOUR PAGE TO THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, OR LOVED PETS, AND LEAVING THEM SUCH LOVELY FLOWERS/TOKENS AND MESSAGES, PLEASE KNOW THAT I TRULY DO APPRECIATE YOUR KINDNESS. IT WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN. ***********************************************Born Sandra Gail Baker in Eureka, California. Daughter of Tom (John Thomas) (December 23, 1918 - January 9, 1994) and Edna Joyce Broomfield Baker (July 7, 1925 - August 22, 1993). Most of my growing up days were here in SW Arkansas, where my parents were born and raised and passed on. I have 4 siblings, 2 of which are deceased. I lost 4 immediate family members in 5 years (daddy, mom, brother and sister). Then I lost my oldest nephew 2 1/2 years later. I am kinda surprised how many family and friends I have located here on FAG; and I have, also, added several family members, friends, and loved pets. I think FAG is a wonderful idea. How many of us can really go and visit all of our family and loved ones as much as we'd like; and, also, I find it will be great for those working on their genealogy. We really do need to preserve those before us. They really do not deserve to be forgotten! ***********************************************NAMES I AM RESEARCHING: PATERNAL:BakerPierceRosserMcCurryBlockerHandleyLumpkin MATERNAL:BroomfieldWhitneyEvansTeagleGreenPondJohnson***********************************************Light a CandleLight a candle for those we mourn.Into a new life they will be born.Do not look for them at the gravesite.They are somewhere else radiating their beautiful light.They have gone to a new world where there is no darkness, no pain.Their light and essence will always remain.Light a candle for those who have left this mortal place.They are free to travel through time and space.When we think of them, they are near.When we sit in a beautiful garden. Their voices we hear.When we listen to a divine symphony,We close our eyes, their faces we see.Light a candle for they have not really gone.With each flickering flame, in your hearts they will always belong.© A.Pell 24/08/2005***********************************************The Dash PoemI read of a man who stood to speakAt the funeral of a friendHe referred to the dates on her tombstoneFrom the beginning to the endHe noted that first came the date of her birthAnd spoke the following date with tears,But he said what mattered most of allWas the dash between those yearsFor that dash represents all the timeThat she spent alive on earth.And now only those who loved herKnow what that little line is worth.For it matters not how much we own;The cars, the house, the cash,What matters is how we live and loveAnd how we spend our dash.So think about this long and hard.Are there things you'd like to change?For you never know how much time is left,That can still be rearranged.If we could just slow down enoughTo consider what's true and realAnd always try to understandThe way other people feel.And be less quick to anger,And show appreciation moreAnd love the people in our livesLike we've never loved before.If we treat each other with respect,And more often wear a smileRemembering that this special dashMight only last a little while.So, when your eulogy is being readWith your life's actions to rehashWould you be proud of the things they sayAbout how you spent your dash?©1996 Linda Ellis***********************************************ღ ღ ღ PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND USE MY PERSONAL PHOTOS, ANYWHERE, OR PLACE ANY PORTION OF MY MEMORIALS ON OTHER WEBSITES WITHOUT MY WRITTEN PERMISSIONღ ღ ღ PICTURES TAKEN BY ME, OR MY FAMILY MEMBERS, AND PLACED HERE ARE COPYRIGHTED. ღ ღ ღTHEY BELONG TO "US", NOT ANYONE ELSE.ღ ღ ღღ ღ ღ THANK YOUღ ღ ღ
