Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it if it is on my interment page or email it to you if it is on someone else's page!

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

Thank YOU so very much for taking the pics of Bob Jackson's grave. It means a lot to me and my family. I live in Texas and we couldn't make it to his funeral. Bob was an honorable man who was loved and respected by all who knew him. Thanks for your time and patience for finding him and posting the pictures.

I love you solution on how to handle Alberta's
long life. More people are living to be 100 and more. It is a common practice to put both of the spouse's names on the headstone, with the birth date of the surviving spouse included.

RE: L. Z. Hartsuff
Thank you so much for your kind message!! I totally agree with your feeling regarding sharing of info; it benefits us all.
I really appreciate your kindness and time.
Regarding adding my name to memorials as the source of info, I've had many people add my name and/or findagrave number to their memorials as a source, and would not object at all. Findagrave is public anyway.
Thank you again.
