Welcome to In Our Hearts

Welcome Family and Friends,

Through “In Our Hearts”, I will show how the invisible connections between the past and the present shape our world, and our place (as individuals) in it.

Within each one of us is a legacy of memories, lessons, values and history passed down from those who walked before us. No matter how far you have traveled, or what separates you—the ties of family are intricately connected through the guiding hands of our ancestors watching over us. Sometimes the hands are gentle, other times the pull is strong. We are called to remember. We are called to teach our children from the lessons and experiences of family. We are called to question. We are called to open doors to healing. We are called to give voice to a forgotten past. We are all called by name, to return to the faded footsteps from which our very first steps began.

“In Our Hearts” is a tribute to the branches of my family tree(s): the Fords, Martins, Mortons, Green(e)s and all related branches. I invite you to contribute to this page, so that all our precious memories, and family history can be preserved. Please feel free to include anything you think is relevant—stories, pictures, recipes, genealogy, current events, etc.  I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

My sincere gratitude goes out to my family. I thank all of you taking the time and effort to share with me. I thank my grandparents and ancestors for their efforts, dreams, and sacrifices. I wake up each morning with appreciation, and awe of how your work and love created such a life, such opportunities.
