Jeff in Philly: My name is Jeff and I live in Philadelphia. I'm from a small town in Ohio and my family remains there. Somehow I found your site by accident and instead of clicking off it like I normally do I looked at all your photos and read the info that goes with them. I was so touched by it all that I sat here and cried. Never have I seen a site that was made with feelings and full of love. I feel like I've shared in your loss. My father is slowly dying of heart problems and I've been the strong one in the family. You have giving me the strength to continue on being the strong one and I've decided to make my own site. Your strength, courage, undying love and willingness to make this site has been very helpful to me. Thanks for making this site and sharing with all us in the world. I would like to hear from you if you would like to write. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my name is Jeff

rachel: Nice pictures. I was wondering if you are from Pine Grove, Pennsylvania? I just lost my mom suddenly 4 weeks ago (she just turned 44) and having a hard time dealing with it. I am 24 and just had her first grandchild Oct. 30. she died on his 3-month birthday :-( but It was nice to see your pictures and at the cemetary. I go to see her there all the time. She loved gardening and your pics brought me happy memories. I was wondering where you got the tombstone because we wanted one with her picture on it too. Email me please if you can. i also lost my dog Odie of 12 years in September. hang in there

I too, lost a child over thirty years ago. I have three other children and now Grandchildren and yet that sweet sadness is always there.
Your pictures touched me deeply. I hope some special magic falls into your life. You seem to love your present husband deeply...much happines to you both.

Laura Fitzpatrick: Phyllis,
I absolutely adored looking at all your pictures, they were wonderful and how many great memories you have. Your memory stones are such a wonderful idea, I just love it. Your pictures of the kids and your mom and dad and your first husband made me cry. I too have lost my mom and dad and my first husband and of course my John, I have my son Craig, and daughter Colleen still with me (thank God). Your cats are so adorable and I just love Wheezer. A stroll through your garden was breath taking. It made me want to come visit you to walk through it right now. Your have a wonderful website and I really enjoyed visiting it. Thank you so much.
January 8, 2003 9:13PM
Liz: Thanks for sharing your life. You made me cry... but I'm a little sensitive right now. The anniversary of my dad's death is in a few weeks and it's not an easy time. On a happier note, if you'd like to see my baby, our album is HMV22. Good luck to you!
