Perfect Picture for Memorial Day

My uncle Stanley Robinson passed away in July 2010. ┬áJust 10 months later in May 2011, his mom, my grandmother Alice, also passed away. Stanley was my grandmother’s first born and they were always very close. Even though we lost them both so soon after each other, I relish in the fact that they are buried in the same cemetery – the Sarasota National Cemetery in Sarasota, Florida.

Not only are they buried in the same cemetery, but their plots are in the same diagonal row. In the picture below, Stanley’s headstone is in the foreground, with the red flowers and if you look down the row diagonally grandma is where you see the yellow flowers.

I have been meaning to post this picture for two years and today seemed like the perfect day to do it. :-)

  1. Dear Taneya, Late last night, in searching a Christie-Carlisle family connection on familysearch I stumbled upon your websites which helped me fill in some Carlisle blanks. Love being able to enter family info into that site! Just discovered the ability to do that this past week when my ancestry subscription expired. I have been trying to find a way to contact your on your gen website regarding our Christie family connections! My Mom is a Christie of 8 generations from North Carolina/Virginia going back to Robert CHRISTIE, born 1702/wife Elizabeth LAMBERT of North Farnham Parish, Richmond Co., Virginia. Mom’s Great-Grandfather was Thomas Hervey CHRISTIE, born 13 OCT 1834, Edgecombe Co., NC. He was a brother to your Elizabeth Bettie CHRISTIE CARLISLE. He married Martha Henry BARFIELD. My Mom, a CHRISTIE of Arlington, VA, named me Christie to continue the legacy! Look forward to hearing from you! I can tell your love of family and ancestry from your sites! Am sorry I have to post to this Memorial but do it in love and desiring to communicate with you! Thank you! Christie
