Being a photo volunteer for Find A Grave has become my primary hobby, and has inspired a belief that every person deserves that their time, regardless how little or how long, be preserved in grave marker photo's before time and the elements takes it's toll and they are lost forever. Having the opportunity to provide others with grave marker pictures, who otherwise, may never have a chance to see them, is a gratifying experience. I strive to get the best possible photo, although deterioration, or location, of some markers makes that difficult.|
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Thank you for taking the picture of the headstone. I too, volunteer for Find a Grave, and like you enjoy helping others on their search for answers. Your photo has helped me to get one step closer to the answers I am seeking. Have a blessed day!

|Mary Watts||Eva Kline photo|
Thank you so much for the photo of the headstone of Eva Kline. She was my husband's g g grandmother. Is it possible to get a photo of her husband's headstone, Edward Kline, also her daughter and son in Law, Margaret & Samuel Lee Tuck? They are supposed to be buried near each other.
I should have asked at the same time, but didn't think it would get done so soon. If necessary, I will make a request through the grave site on line. Just let me know.
Thanks so much for the photo of Allie Taylor's gravestone. Your good work is greatly appreciated!
