Bio Photo Hello,

I am here, making a small footprint, creating memorials and photographing burial sites. My headstone photos may be used with proper credit. I hope they help many people in more ways than one.

Recording the death of someone is in honor of their life, and never meant to disrespect those left to mourn. I understand the pain of losing family and friends; and also the awe of finding an ancestor. It is bittersweet in some ways..

Please leave a flower for my mother, June; Father, Jack; and my two sisters, Kay Rose, who was taken from us far too soon, and Gwen, also my best friend. I never imagined life without her ~ Thank you!

My family line is: Smith of IN/Germany; Carpenter of LA; Klein of LA/Germany; Girard of LA/France; Van Auken of IN/Holland; Van Wormer of NY/Holland (etc); which we all know....leads to many others :)

I will transfer any family members as long as they are not mine, unless it is a mandatory. If I have your family or close friend, please explain the relationship, as all requests will be considered individually.

If you ask me to include information on a memorial, please Include Your Sources via SAC; under "edits" on the said memorial. I will deny any that do not have a source under edits or to my email. Having spent many, many hours correcting errors on my own family members, I'd prefer not to be the one who spreads misinformation on anyone else's family members. Should you have any questions about a memorial and see my name or member ID as the source of information, please contact me and not the person who maintains the memorial. This is why the information is posted.
Thanks, in advance, for understanding.

This is not a game and am not here to "rack up the numbers" or compete for them. If you think I have a lot of memorials, think again. In some ways it's an unpleasant immortality reminder... and for me that doesn't equate to competition or fun.

And, last but not least, please don't cry or complain on my wall. Rather than trying to communicate via postings, please use my email and not my public profile page....being ugly here will result in no communication whatsoever.

...Life is short, be nice, play kind, and don't sweat the small stuff...

Thank you,
C. R. Smith

RE: Ada Carter
Just checked with friend. Please record as seen -- make McCoy a middle name.
No need to transfer at this time. trying to get my friend to join then she can maintain it.
Thank you so much for your patience and willingness to work with us on this.

RE: Ada Carter
Leave the name as it is in the headstone. I asked the granddaughter and she said make sure you include in the bio that she married Mr McCoy with whom she had 9 children!!
My friend is still searching for his first name.
Thanks for catching that.

RE: A Grant @ StL Calvary

I did forget to remind you ... The dates on the cemetery records are BURIAL dates not DEATH dates.

RE: Victor Barrio
He definitely deserves to be remembered as such! May I suggest, if you don't mind, that you transfer to me his memorial and I will see what I can do with the biography presented from your end and re-submit it anew? Thanks Charlotte!
