To Those Whom I Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go; I have so many things to see and do You must not tie yourself to me with tears Be happy that I have had so many years I gave you my love, you can only guess How much you gave me in happiness I thank you for the love you have shown But now it is time I traveled on alone So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must; Then let your grief be comforted by trust It is only for a while that we must part So bless the memories in your heart I will not be far away, for life goes on So if you need me, call and I will come Though you can not see or touch me, I' will be near And if you listen with your heart, you will hear All of my love around you soft and clear Then when you must come this way alone I'll greet you with a hug and smile and welcome you home. By Mary Alice Ramish Exo 33:14 (NNAS) And He said, 'My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest' Courtesy The Lake Isabella Kern Valley Sun

Harville-306 and Harville-230 appear to represent the same person because: they are the same because they have the same birthdate, dod, parents, children

Wikitree says this "No known carriers of Ethel's mitochondrial DNA have taken an mtDNA test and no close relatives have taken a 23andMe, AncestryDNA, or Family Tree DNA "Family Finder" test.

The statement is not true. I have taken an AncestryDNA test and the results have been uploaded to this sight. I just mailed my mtDNA test into FTDNA today. This is my mother, so I do not know why it says no known relatives have taken the test
