I just like cemeteries. I came here to find Rhonda Lou Jones, buried in Britt IA. She is one of the memorials in my virtual cemetery "missed." The first person entered in "missed" was Mary Helen Swope, whom I was dismayed to find here. How I want my remains disposed of: DO NOT PUT ME IN A BOX! Let me mingle with the dirt! Take my ashes and those of my beloved Elizabeth, put us in a Bios Urn, and plant us on the old site of my childhood home. Add violet & viola seeds. Put up a field stone (we have enough of them around; waste not want not), engraving optional. Let the Bios Urn tree, as it grows, engulf the stone. Never dig me up again.
My great grandparents, Saphronia Money and John Hutchens, left home (North Carolina) young and never discussed their families again. My grandmother is 90 and would love news of her family, as she is their last surviving child.
