Ex-paratrooper. Graduate Student. [update: Graduated! WooHoo!] Wife. Mommy. (Definitely not in order of importance.)
I was working on my and my husband's family tree online and I had pretty much run into a dead end on my side when he showed me a headstone of one of my relatives in Alabama. I was so surprised and asked him where he got it. That was my introduction to findagrave.com.

The happiest people I know are people who don't even think about being happy. They just think about being good neighbors, good people. And then happiness sort of sneaks in the back window while they are busy doing good. -Rabbi Harold Kushner
