Bio Photo Greetings!

I've been a wife for 35 years and a mother of 2 remarkable young people. While I have been a nurse for more than 40 years, part of my life's dream was to be a history teacher. I love the things I can learn with finding graves, especially, when I am able to learn of the accomplishments of those people whose graves I photograph.

If there are any additions or corrections to be added to a memorial I have entered, please let me know.

Also, if I have created a memorial for your loved one that you wish not have included on this website, contact me and I will delete it.

My brother Ben's stone
Hi: You had downloaded(?) my brother Benjamin R. O'Toole Jr.'s stone some time ago and I do appreciate it. I remember letting you know that.
I wanted to tell you that his new stone is also shown. I would really like to leave yours up also. You can see the difference.
I didn't download his new stone. I'm not that proficient. One of my other friends did it from a photo she has.

Take care.

Find A Grave Transfer Request
Historical Passion,

I've noticed that you have created 2 of the 7 Donaldson family members buried in the Morrisville Cemetery in Morrisville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. These 7 graves are an aunt and uncle and cousins of mine that I would like to take over the management of.

The 2 graves that that I'm requesting member transfer ship are:

Memorial # Name
19177874 Isabella Kane Donaldson
19177906 John K. Donaldson Jr.

I have requested transfer ship of the other 5 graves from the person that created them so that I can manage all 7 graves.

My Find A Grave membership number is # 48354316.

Would you be willing to transfer them to me?


Rick Richards

Benjamin Raymond O'Toole's gravestone photo
Hi: Some time ago you kindly added a gravestone photo of my brother Benjamin Raymond O'Toole, Jr.'s gravestone on my memorial of him.
I wanted to tell you that since that photo was taken, unfortunately, there was damage done to the stone. Part of his birth year was "nicked" to the point where the 1 in 1931 was almost impossible to read.
I contacted the managers of the cemetery and asked if I could have another grave stone put him. The stone was rough also. Some were and some weren't. Well, since the stone was from a historic period, World War II, they weren't sure if they could replace it. They did replace it and now there's a new nice stone there. We took a photo of it, but can't seem to get it onto the computer. We will eventually. I'll let you know when we do. I would like you to keep yours there even when we put the new one up.
I just wanted to let you know.
