Hoping to transfer maintenance of memorials of those who are not my relations. I tried to add genealogy data to help people find their family members. Permission to use photos. They were taken for you. I'm just trying to "pay it forward" in thanks to all who have helped me. However, documenting your sources is always a smart idea. I try very hard to do this, too.

Many thanks to all the FAG contributors who have accepted my edits and updated links. I work on far branches of my family tree, so I might put in an edit for my seventh cousin, twice removed, lol. I am always willing to send confirmation when asked, but please know that I don't send an edit until I have read a document such as a birth, baptismal, marriage, or death certificate, etc. I work very quickly. In fact, some days FAG makes me confirm that I am not a robot because I have put in so many edits. I am only trying to help people who are trying to work on their trees. If you don't have time to edit, I am not offended. In fact, 10 minutes after I have sent the edit, I have forgotten about it because I have already sent more. But, I am always happy to get those emails saying that you accepted my edits. Together, I believe we are helping others.

Memorial Day Poem

Two short months have gone, dear Dad, since you have passed away
Yet, most of what you gave to me is still alive today.
Your faith, your love, your strength abide just like a strong oak tree
Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.

Dear Mother, ten short years ago, you left this earthly home
Yet, all you said and taught to me still shields me like a dome.
Your care, your smiles, your lessons reign just like a master key
Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.

Twenty years have flown, dear Gramps, since I have seen your face.
Yet, all the love you gave to me surrounds me like a brace.
Your caring, thoughtful tenderness dwells like the deep, blue sea
Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.

Dear Ancestors, the centuries passed since you walked on this earth
Yet, all your values and your love have found a new rebirth.
Your culture will sustain through time with each new family,
Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.
