Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for stopping by my profile page on findagrave.

I first started using findagrave to locate "famous" graves and quickly became more interested in the non famous side of findagrave. I love walking through cemeteries and photographing all the history they hold.
After the passing of my beloved grandmother Dorothy Johler Cruser I decided to start adding all of my family, which lead to my love of genealogy. I believe everyone should know where they came from and findagrave is an excellent way of leaving a place for future generations to search. I also enjoy strolling through all the other memorials on here and reading everyone's stories. I always leave a token when I visit as a way of letting their loved ones know they were visited and thought of.

On April 8,2014 I lost my best friend, my cousin Cindy Lou Corby Ritter, please stop by and leave her a token. Her loss has been extremely difficult on all of our family.

Please visit my very dear friend, who passed away on 1/10/11 Tiffany Michele Spangenburg.

Thank You to those of you who leave tokens on the memorials of my loved ones.

RE: Regarding Margaret Sweet
I think it is lovely that you are helping your friend with her mother's memorial and wish you well. I do not know her, but only ran across the memorial while searching for someone else. I hope the family is soon in a position to have her name added to the family plot. Please extend my condolences to your friend, Dorothy.

Your photo of Jsmes and Lois Wilson monument
Do you know if there is a gravemarker for their son Thomas Wilson? It was so mice that they included Hannah Dutter (foster child raised by the parents of Lois Bullock Wilson) on their monument.

wrong photo
Hi Dorothy: You have attached a wrong photo of a grave to the wrong person.

I am referring to #48573084 William Scott Van Nostrand I, born 1919.

The photo of the grave is for his son William Scott Van Nostrand born 1943.

Please remove it.

Thank you, Judy

Hello Dorothy! Thank you for the very nice photos in Calvary Cemetery, Drums, PA. Based on those, I have made 3 new memorials. Would you mind adding copies of your photos to the new memorials? They are: Vincent Osadchy, #167089453; David Nilles, #167082403; and Stephen Kutz, #167082212. Thanks for all of your help! Bill

Robert "Red" Nichols stone
Dorothy,

Thank you so much for photographing my husband's grandfather's stone! He passed long before my husband was born, and has been a mystery until now.

Your efforts are so greatly appreciated!

God bless!

Cheryl
