Bio and Links
Bio Photo All good deeds must be punished, I guess. I have been requested to remove all the obituaries I have posted. Since I have posted hundreds, this is an impossible task. I will no longer contribute ANYTHING to FindAGrave.com and will limit my volunteer efforts to iowagravestones.org. The complainer did not even have the decency to sign their email, therefore most post here.

For those looking for Obits from Appanoose County, Iowa, search for them at the FREE website: http://centerville.advantage-preservation.com/search/site

Henry Franzen
MidwestA,

Saw that you requested a photo of Henry Franzen's marker (plus his wife if there) in Sentinel Butte Cemetery. When I see a request I always look at the bio of the person who requested the photo.

I was VERY dismayed when I read what you had to say about being asked to remove the obituaries you posted! When I first started doing memorials I only added name of parents and spouse if available - well plus dates, of course. Then I found a memorial for my great aunt that had an obituary on it. I was THRILLED!

There are always a few "rotten apples". I am so sorry that you had the misfortune of being a victim of their malice. I would dare venture that there are many people who really appreciate/appreciated the effort that you put into Find a Grave!

There is a saying in Latin (which I don't know in Latin) - it translates "Don't let the bastards grind you down."

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

I could not find his wife. If you want the picture of the back of his stone I can send it to you. But it only shows that he is buried there. Sorry.

Keilwitz in Hebron
Marie Keilwitz was with Otto Keilwitz and the closest grave was that of Henry Kripal (1923-1985). If you would like a photo for either of these, please request and I would be happy to add a photo.

Your welcome.. The records for Granite Hill were burned in a fire years ago. I will keep and eye out.

I just saw your post about being asked to remove your volunteer work. How very sad and hurtful for you. I want to tell you how much I appreciate the posting of headstone for Anna Sager and Arthur Sager to Find A Grave. I live a good distance away and rely on the good heartedness of people like you to fill in the gaps in my family tree. Thanks again for your efforts.

RE: FindAGrave edits
Thanks. I approve those every few days. It is much easier the the hundreds of emails I was receiving most weeks in the past.
