This page is titled as such, because families ARE like "new and fallen leaves". Some people are bright and colorful while others are more sedate and quiet but just as full of living. Some of the people on these pages are just begining their lives, some are just reaching the peak of theirs, still others are coming near to the end of theirs. There are those who have come and left their marks but are no longer with us, who have fallen before us. But they did not want to be lost from us forever, their dreams are still just as real for their loved ones and family as are ours.
We ask that you stop and think about those who will come behind you, wanting to know from whence they came and who their ancestors were.
THEY ARE OUR FUTURE!
Give them some "roses without thorns" to cherish and hand down to their loved ones. Only in this way will you, your parents and siblings never be forgotten.
Genealogy is very much like a rose. It is a joy to behold, can be held closs to your heart or pressed in the pages of your mind. Please write down your own personal history so that they might know the answers we all have tried so hard to find.
Leave them all your tender memories of those who are here now and those that went before you.
Leave them a legacy of love.
