I retired from my career as a medical transcriptionist in 2008, and now work in the Foster Grandparent program, donating 20 hours per week at a local elementary school, primarily working with children in grades 3-5. I love helping the children find joy and satisfaction in learning and nurturing their innate desire to do well. I relish the opportunity Foster Grandparenting affords in developing trusting relationships with children from a wide social spectrum.
I was so excited to be introduced to Find-A-Grave by my friend Kathy. It has been a source of great joy to me to find so many ancestors on this site. The information is priceless as it has helped me complete my family genealogy. It has likewise been a tremendous thrill to hear from others I have helped, in some small way, to complete their family circles as well. I believe searching out our kindred dead is a great and worthy work.
