|Bio and Links|
|I am a mother of three and believe that honoring our family is important. This site is wonderful and I wish I could do more. I love to go out to grave yards and look at headstones and wonder what the person there was like. Cemeteries are so peaceful and quiet. I moved to Lancaster about 4 years ago and I take care of my elderly father. Am looking for work but it just is not happening. My hobbies are furniture refinishing and blanket making. I use to live in Bishop, Ca where I was a volunteer Firefighter and EMT. All my children are grown with families of their own. Life is good.|

|Susan Ing||RE: Sayer memorial|
Go to the memorials in question and use the edit button and ask for a transfer. It links me to you and the memorial at the same time. You never gave me memorials numbers.
Hmmm, that's strange. I thought I created a memorial for Susanna and added the photos to it. Now I see that there is one created by you. I'll add the photos to that one. I don't know what happened!
|B.J. Waters||RE: Reich pictures|
Yes, I have added the photos. If you need anything else, just let me know.
|John Williams||RE: john william blume jr.|
Sorry for the delay but explained in an email to you. I did not update the information as I thought you might like to do that. Glad you will be able now to link family up. Take care.
|Don Green||RE: Owen and annie dennis|
You're very welcome for the photos, Mary. Glad I could help out !
|CRISTY||RE: blume grave sites|

|Susan VanVoorhis||RE: Somm, Kraus, and Carroll|
The black block I use to polish the stones is something that was meant to clean grills with. My husband purchased it at Smart 'n Final. I don't know if you have those stores in your area. But, it is about the size of a brick, is black and porous (like pumice is). I believe it isn't as abrasive as pumice. The cemetery workers use them and that is were I got the idea from. I hope you can find one too, the work very nicely. Just spray a thin coat of water and wipe with the black thingy and then wipe with a cloth, then a clean cloth. It is amazing, they look brand new!
All the best,

Oh yes....I wanted to thank you for providing the plot, space, etc numbers for each of the graves. It really cuts my time down significantly...Many people do not provide that and the cemeteries are sometimes reluctant to give a stranger the directions and so, it can take so much time just to get them.
But, I really appreciate it more than you know. I wish all requesters were as considerate as you.
All the best,
|Susan VanVoorhis||RE:Cleaning Grave Stones|
So glad you liked the photos of Somms, Kraus, and Carroll grave markers. I really try to get the best photo I can get, because these photos will most likely outlast the stones themselves. It is so sad that some are disintegrating!
I clean and polish exactly the way the workers at the cemetery do....I sweep them off, spray with some water (from a spray bottle-just plain water) and then I polish with a thing that looks like black pumice. It can be bought anywhere they sell barbeques. They are generally used for cleaning grills. It is a block of this black stuff, reminds me of a synthetic pumice. It works like a charm and doesn't scratch the marble or granite. I wouldn't try it on the other types of stones, but that is the main type out here in Southern California.
