My mother joined my dad in Monte Vista Cemetery, so I am doing scoping cemeteries with my mother in spirit.
We do not do anything to the stones, so, if a bird has come calling we leave everything "as is". You might catch us moving a flower out of the way to get a better picture of the stone *grins*.
If you would like the memorial just ask. We hold no claim to any of the people in the cemetery. We are getting a bit of exercise and helping people in the process.
Also, if you would like to copy the photos of your family please do so; we are giving permission now, you need not ask us.
We can get obituaries from Otero County. If you would like us to get a particular one, two or more email us and we can go on the hunt. Month and year minimum the day would be heavenly but not required.
John and Jane Zinke Thank you for making updates to John and Jane's memorials. I recently created cenotaphs for them while documenting Richford Cemetery, WI on Find A Grave. John and Jane have a lovely remembrance bench there near other members of the Zinke family.
I sent a request to Find A Grave to link their cenotaphs (#131048171 and #131048152) with your memorials. Hopefully, that will happen soon.
Thank you so much for your generosity in transferring Ira's memorial to my care. I will add more information to his bio this week. I appreciate your kindness and the work you do for FindAGrave and family researchers!
