May She Rest in Peace

Mostly, genealogists who have blogs blog about their own ancestors and family. Occasionally there are times I wish to share other parts of life with you.

Today, I want to give all of my thoughts and prayers to Elyse Doerflinger who at age 20, lost her mother last night. Elyse is much to young, at age 20, to loose her mother. Her mother was much to young to loose her life, at age 50.

Elyse's mother had been ill and passed rather quickly. Her pain is finally over, may she rest in peace.

Elyse is a strong, intelligent young woman, one of the youngest in the genealogy community, who hosts her own genealogy blog. She has written a wonderful tribute to her mother here.

Elyse, I want you to know that you have so many supporters from the genealogy community who are willing to help you in any way. The next few days will understandably be very busy, many days beyond will be very emotional. Just remember your genealogy friends are here for you always. Our hearts go out to you.

You will be in my thoughts Elyse through this tough change in your life. Keep those wonderful memories of your mother close to your heart. If you ever need an ear, or anything, please don't hesitate to come calling!

Thank you for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
