Forget-me-not
...Once upon a time I walked across this hard, cold earth, and when I reached the end of my journey I looked back and beheld that the winds of time had erased all signs that I was ever here. But if you look closely, you will see an indentation here and a groove there, and if we are both very lucky you will find a foot print. And if you will look and find the signs of my passing, and remember me for a day or a season, I will be grateful.

RE: Memorials 139009672, 85374197, 139833961
Hi Kurt,

If you just transfer the memorials to me I will make changes. I didn't realize that I could edit the information from the obituary myself until after I sent the message to you. I will be adding gravesite photos and other info once spring arrives and the stones are able to be etched.

Thank you. I appreciate it.

I made contact with you last year and put their information on FindAGrave as you had their Burials listed as "unknown". Would you be so kind and delete their double Memorials as I entered their proper burials with Church notations that I acquired before going to the Cemetery and locating where they are buried. Thank you for your understanding.

Kurt,
As per FindAGrave guidelines that I've pasted below, please edit the obituaries of the above memorials (my mother, mother-in-law, and father-in-law respectively) to remove all of the living survivors and remove the photos that were not taken by you and are considered under copyright.

Then please transfer those memorials to me.
Thank you.
As one further note, I was extremely hurt and dismayed that you created an account for my mother before we even had a chance to have her funeral. I understand you quite possibly have a passion for genealogy, as do I and others in my family, but that does not mean you should treat someone like a number so you can be the first one to get an account posted. Mom passed on the 19th of November, you had her memorial posted on the 20th, before an official obituary hit the newspaper and while we were still making final plans with the funeral home and purchasing flowers and contacting relatives. It might be different if you were a family member, but it's very unsettling that no one in either family knows who you are. Maybe in the future you can be a little more compassionate for those who lose their loved ones.

FindAGrave FAQs regarding the copying of obituaries, photos, and survivor information:

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

What about the privacy of living family members?
An individual's right to privacy disappears when they are deceased. The opinions of the relatives of the deceased fall on all sides of the question. Some people are angry to find a loved one when they come to Find A Grave, even if the memorial was added by another relative, as is usually the case, and some people are elated and send us notes of thanks for building an online memorial to their family member. If an immediate family member contacts us and wants information removed, we generally do so as a matter of respect for their wishes but we treat each request on a case by case basis. The names of living survivors will be removed from the biography section of a memorial upon request.

Calvin B Parriet Memorial# 68393113
Hi Kurt:
Re: duplicate memorial for Calvin Parriet.
I received a message tonight that there is a duplicate memorial for Calvin Parriet.

Would you please delete your memorial since I have a memorial made from has burial record in Woodland Cemetery?

Also, looks like there is an error in the spelling of his wife's first name on her memorial according to what I have in Calvin's bio.

Thanks, Jane
