Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've had a serious interest in recording our past and present for many years. I'm an avid researcher doing our genealogical history, and find searching cemeteries fascinating.

A headstone may be the last tangible remains of a loved one, proof that that person actually existed. I feel we're preserving these grave stones the best we can. By taking pictures and transcribing these headstones, we stop the progress of time, weather, and, most unfortunately, vandalism that sometimes makes a headstone illegible or missing.

So as you pass your way through a cemetery, consider an old Mexican saying about three

"First, there is the moment in which the body stops functioning. Second, there is the
time that the remains are consigned to the grave. Third, there is that moment, sometime
in the future, in which the person's name is spoken for the last time.......Then the
person is really gone."

As you read through the names on the grave stones, whisper their names aloud, so they will
not be forgotten and will live on forever.

For downloadable photos I try to post my cemetery photos on Picasa. You can search them at:

Lately I have found a focus on our Veterans. When I see that a Veteran has passed, I try to establish a Memorial for him or her. If you are a family member of one of these veterans, please request a transfer if you wish.

Thank you.
