I found this site when I was doing research on my family. What a pleasant surprise when I saw all the work that had been done by others volunteering their time and energy for such a cause.
I have since started enjoying genealogy work and gathering my family roots. When I have time, I also post from various newspaper obits. It is so nice to receive emails from surprised family members who have found their loved ones listed on Find A Grave. Our loved ones are gone, but their memories live on. With this in mind, what we do in life is a lasting memory.
God bless you and those who have gone before us... every person does count...! I am hoping that my little contribution to this cause can make a difference for you and your family.
To One in Sorrow
Let me come in where you are weeping friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow such as yours,
Let me come in —
I would be very still beside you in your grief;
I would not bid you cease your weeping, friend,
Tears bring relief.
Let me come in and hold your hand,
For I have known a sorrow such as yours,
—Grace Noll Crowell
