From experience - never post your e-mail address as xxx@gmail.com anywhere on the Web. Internet Spiders will find it & start sending you all sorts of interesting? stuff. If you type it as xxxxx (at) gmail (dot) com, anybody can figure it out & the spiders won't find it.

Once I saw the pictures, I knew why I took them - the wreath was beautiful although the picture doesn't do it justice.

Your Dad
My deepest condolences on the loss of your dad. I miss mine a lot. He loved old cemeteries - we always stopped to check them out - and he loved to take photographs. Find A Grave would have been a perfect project for his retirement.

This is from the Find A Grave FAQ
"What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family, friends, and ‘famous' individuals."

Some contributors enter memorials from obits, or transcriptions, or photographs. I do mostly photographs although when I run out, I will enter old transcriptions or from obituaries. I do it to pay forward for the wonderful contributor who entered my missing uncle's grave (last time the family saw him was Christmas 1945) and the other wonderful contributor that took the photo. My dad would have been overjoyed to know Ernest was found. I also do this to preserve the wonderful history in our local cemeteries and memorialize the people who created that history before it is lost to time & weather. I think the best part is I can visit my loved ones any time of the day or year & not have to deal with our lousy New England weather to do so.

Since I don't know your dad's name, I don't know if I entered from a photo, obituary, or I did one & a different contributor did the other.

If you click on the Edit tab in the upper right hand corner of the screen it will bring you to a screen with the first choice being "Suggest A Correction". Click on that & put "This is my dad" in the message box & I'll transfer the memorial to you. Then you can really make it a memorial to your dad.
