Before I post the obits, and it is rather short tonight, I would like to
say thank you, to all who have written to me and have told me how much
that they have appreciated, seeing them posted. Though most of you know
that I had started this to keep myself from diving into my own research,
when there was a wedding a foot, I decided to continue it, after, the
wedding, which by the way, was one of the happiest day of my life.
When I first thought to do this, I wasn't sure how it would go over, as
I didn't want to offend anyone or bring back sad memories, if someone
saw an obituary of a loved one. I know that hasn't been the case, and
everyone seems to appreciate it, and for that I am truly grateful. I've
enjoyed reading your kind words, such as seeing an obituary that you
hadn't known was published on the island, or telling me that the person
was related to you, or just fond memories of someone you once knew, or
just telling me to keep on posting them, as they are hoping the day will
come they'll see one that they can use in their research. To all of you,
I say thank you.
