Volunteer with the Indiana Pioneer Cemetery Restoration Project. As an active information provider for the Hendricks County Chapter, I answer questions about the local pioneer cemeteries. In 2009, I participated in the restoration of Lingeman Cemetery. Covered head to toe in mud and moss was one of my happiest days.
I am incredibly thankful for mercy and grace.
I am a Hoosier through and through.
Love lightning bugs.
Popcorn is my favorite food.
I feel "home" when I see orange tiger lilies in ditches by the road.
I often hear the theme song from the movie "Hoosiers" playing in my head.
One of my favorite quotes is from Booth Tarkington's
"The Gentleman from Indiana"
It takes a long time for the full beauty of the flat lands to reach a man's soul; once there, nor hills, nor sea, nor growing fan leaves of palm shall suffice him. It is like the beauty in the word "Indiana." It may be that there are people who do not consider "Indiana" a beautiful word; but once it rings true in your ears it has a richer sound than "Vallombrosa."
Thank you sir.
When you can see the beginning again after it was covered by limestone...

I am waiting for you to come back to me. I look for you every year, and I will not stop.
It's going to be okay. Have the kind of faith that heaven notices.
Thank you to my friend in VA who agrees.
Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
