I adopted photography as a hobby at age 13 and have been pursuing it ever since. I have travelled in forty-five or so nations and keep adding to the list. On my travels, I usually make it a practice to visit famous cemeteries and photograph them if time allows. Pere Lachaise (Paris), Recoleta (Buenos Aires), and Highgate (London) are particular favorites. I am an academic by earlier training, a lawyer by profession, and an occasional writer by avocation. Education: Ph.D., Tulane University (Political Science; Graduate School Fellow); J.D., University of Tennessee College of Law; member, Tennessee Law Review. Interests: photography, philosophy (esp. Plato, Hegel, Marx, Cicero, and M. Aurelius), cinema, politics, ancient history, amateur archaeology, travel, music (Bach fugues, pipe organ generally, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Prokofiev, jazz, swing, New Orleans R&B/funk, Cajun, grand opera, Woody Guthrie, and Gilbert & Sullivan--I am among the most dedicated of Savoyards), literature, reading and, from time to time, scribbling. Favorite cities: Paris (the city of my eternal dream), endlessly charming Vienna, Venice, New Orleans, Istanbul, Rome, Prague, Buenos Aires, Marrakech, Fez, Toronto, San Francisco. Favorite nations for travel: Italy, Turkey, France.|

|Loyal Limb||RE: Other Carter County Cemeteries|
I deleted my duplicate memorial for your aunt and add the picture I took of her grave marker to yours. The Miller Cemetery on Heaton Creek is once again in need of some TLC. I should have taken more pictures there but right now I'm just Trying to get good map locations and cemetery pictures to help identify them. I discovered that if a cemetery doesn't have a sign it's name depends on who you ask. Even some with signs are called something different by some. The location won't change so I figure a good location is the first step to sorting out mix ups. I appreciate the kind words. I'm trying to do what I can to preserve the memory of folks like your aunt. Living to be over 100 years old is most impressive.
I'm sorry, I just noticed that they were being managed by Find A Grave.

Famer is but a slow decay; Even this will pass away. And Death is merely a rest stop on the Road to Oblivion. Forever is a very long time.

Thank you for your kind words. Ataturk was a soldier's solder, and not many soldiers make the transition from Warrior to Statesman. I could never have made that transition. What a remarkable man he must have been. It would have been a wonderful thing to have met him, saluted him or shook his hand. Others that I would have treasured such an experience with would have been Rommel, Washington, Pershing, Robert E. Lee, Osceola, Omar Bradley......Ataturk would have been in mighty company.
