Not all of my Memorial submissions have been family through the years. However, over the last five years or so it has been more often than not, my family. I keep virtual cemeteries for all my close family and friends as well as my ancestors if I can when I don't submit them on my own. Keeping family records is my honor and privilege. All photos I have submitted are open for personal use and copying, be my guest; you have my permission.

I very much appreciate maintenance of my family and ancestors because I believe that family should be together and allowed maintenance to all remnants of life in all realms (even right down to statistics on internet sites) and have an understanding & appreciation for those who journey the feat to do so. None-the-less, it is much easier to add all tid-bits of info in a genealogical research versus suggesting an edit in hopes that it will be accepted or how long it will take someone else to consider and/or cooperate.

It is my {JOY} to transfer Memorials over to any and all family regardless of how far back the ancestral lines may go with the exception of my direct line. I have a respect for their efforts as I know how tedious it can get. Consideration for any and all edits, transfer requests, are tended to as quickly as possible and I cordially invite all fellow Graver's to reach out with all concerns or regards. And let me say a great big "THANK YOU" in advance to anyone approving all suggested edits or transfer requests on my behalf before I close this intro with a poem. Please know... you are appreciated. :)

I Lost, Though I Gain

I lost my innocence as a wee babe while I listened to my daddy physically and verbally abusing my mama in the night... yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my hope in kindness of all humanity as a girl who needed speech lessons in order to pronounce her s's correctly, who couldn't see without glasses of which other children believed was a means for comedy hour....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my daddy to a cruel reality of drugs, addiction and the loss of life there-in when I was but a child.....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my closest aunt when I was 8 years old, with Down Syndrome death was anticipated by age 3 for her but in the stead she came to her passing at 22....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my very first true love to the wiles of sickness and disease that kill, while yet still a young lady of 17 and he 18 only....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my first niece at birth, my baby brother lay his first born (daughter) to rest in the smallest casket we'd ever seen....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my best friend as life just began placement of marriage and motherhood for us both, in the middle of our 20's, she was gone by auto accident just like that...yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost my closest of cousins, her being only 19 and 5 months into bearing her second son, had we not lost him too. No smaller casket required, within his mother's bosom lay he, nevermore apart.....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I lost babies as mid-life drew near, before the breath of life even entered their being because the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.....yea, though I gained a Savior.

I have lost much in this journey it seems, a second grandchild, my grandparents, aunts, uncles, the same, but I keep on walking forward, knowing....yea, though I have gained my Savior... Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Each step I take toward His righteousness and truths, and what I must endure through the meantime until the only soul lost is the devil alone!!! yea, though I GAIN a SAVIOR on my way.
