Bio and Links
Bio Photo I kept putting this short bio off, but after doing photo requests for people and "meeting them" through their bios, I decided it was time. I am a retired school teacher who loves doing genealogy work and exploring cemeteries. I love the concept of Find A Grave where people in different areas are so willing to help each other with photos. When my husband and I are fulfilling photo requests, we sometimes add more stones to a cemetery. I am always willing to "give these up" to family members who can add more information. Just ask.

Thank you for making the original memorial and adding the gravestone photo. It is warped and laying on the ground, but your photo is quite readable.

I would like to ask for your permission to use that photo (and others you may have taken of gravestones of my ancestors) in my family tree on Because the photographer has a copyright for each photo, I always ask before using a photo on another web site. I will, of course, put your name as the photographer and the web site of the memorial as the source.

Thank you for considering my request,

RE: Leora Torres in Graceland Cemetery
Thank you for notifying me about Leora. I am very glad she is alive. Please give her our regards.
I don't remember where I got the information that she had passed. It's just a blank for me. I apologize for this terrible mistake.
I hope she is well and, possibly, still living in her house in Avoca.
If you would, please write to me at

Thank you for taking and posting the tombstone photo for my cousin, Elsie Sidlo FAIR #114967210 and her husband Johnie #114967469. Their son is also on the marker with them - Wayne #131487094. Would you please be so kind as to post your photo on his memorial?

I would also like permission to use your photograph in my family genealogy files and someday, if I can ever get it done, a family genealogy book. I will not sell the photo and will give you full credit for your work.

Thank you again for taking the photograph.
