Bio

Life is Very Short! Don't waste it! DANCE IN THE RAIN!

Praying it's not true, but,
I found Find A Grave through my hard-working okie cuz. It used to be one of my favorite sites to visit before all their changes. And if/when Ancestry starts charging for FAG, I am done.

Our Family Goal has been to connect my direct line and children for many years(sadly, Met with some resistance)!! Why, I don't understand?
If I Request my family, and family requests them back, I'm happy to add what I have and transfer Family back to family. That's how my family would expect it! I'm an 'Old Soul'

Does THIS look like I'm guessing? PLEASE, "prove" me wrong! If not for myself & ; my dearest cousins, Much LESS would be known about our Ancestors! We owe Each one a Huge Debt of Gratitude!
If you are adopting out your memorials, I would like to adopt my main family surnames:
Long, Bradford, Harris, Dalton

I have been researching since before 1999. I was raised(in part) as a child by my Grandpa2 Mathern and Grandma Bradford! So, My BRADFORD line means EVERYTHING TO ME!!!
Their Life Story is Quite Amazing!
My Mom then raised me(my dad1 left just before or just after I was born) after my grandparents,
Mina (Lynn) Marie Long & Eugene Joseph Freitas

If you have information to contribute, I appreciate that over leaving unkind messages. I have Never disrespected You. Please don't disrespect me. I will Never understand someone sending in a complaint Over giving the manager of the Memorial the necessary info that will HELP them.
I thought we were all supposed to be working Together in KINDNESS, after all.
If you see any errors, please send me a correction a I will be happy to correct. Please use the 'edit' for changes or corrections. For those that share with me additional information of my family stories, from my whole heart, THANK YOU!
It means so very much to me. XOXO
For Kind Hearts, Please email me any time!
If I have added incorrect information on YOUR relative, please don't hesitate to let me know.

I am happy to transfer any memorials of your family as long as they are not my Family. Thank You! I have some Very Special family. However, if you were real close to someone, I will definitely consider transferring! I think it's so very important for Family to have care over their OWN family!

Thank You to those Dear-Hearts that leave Tokens.
You are Very Appreciated!
Huge Thank You to those dear-hearts that take the huge expense & time to go and take pictures of our loved ones Headstones. That is very time-consuming, especially these large cemeteries and our aged tired ones. If not for these volunteers, much less history would be saved!
What an honor to meet any if these dear folks!

Thanks for sharing okie cuz:

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't want to know.
But, here's another question, which
Requires another view,
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?
