Missing my son, Mark Allen Israels. II.
November 20, 1988
July 6, 2012
Losing a child is the most horrific pain one will ever feel.
The "Hillside Cemetery" in Reno was my motivation for Find A Grave. I had been a resident of Reno for 20 years before I knew of its existence. I finally found where the Hillside Cemetery was located and when I went there I was so appalled, outraged and shocked at the condition of the final resting place for many of Washoe County's finest citizens.
I started researching the cemetery online and found a survey prepared by Dolores Samuels Young and Mildred Chandler Pressell, back in 1955. Thank God, these ladies took the time to record all of the headstones that were legible at that time. Without their survey who knows how many people would have been forgotten.
I try everyday to find some little piece of information for the people buried in the Hillside Cemetery.
I try to post all information I find on a person, I believe it's sharing not stealing, especially if I take the time to research the information I find. Not everybody has the means to find the same information. I hate to think that a picture I found in a yearbook, or in a library and didn't share might have been a relative's only chance of seeing it. I'm forever grateful to others who shared pictures of my family with me. I also post obituaries especially from the 1800's. I think people like to see them. With that being said, I hope you see me as a contributor who wants to help in every way possible.
May God bless you and keep you safe in his loving arms.
Please be honest with me, if I entered a memorial and it was a family member of yours I am so willing and understanding to transfer them to you, but, please don't send me messages telling me I duplicated the memorial that you entered when it clearly shows that I entered mine in 2007 and you entered yours in 2010. Just say hey when I first started on Find A Grave I didn't realize you could transfer memorials over and I wanted to be the owner so I duplicated the memorial. It's not about numbers so I would've gladly transferred ownership over. But, don't try to be dishonest about it. I am always willing to transfer family.

Thanks very much for transferring the memorials you added for the Jarbidge Cemetery. I work with the local cemetery association and am trying to document everyone who is buried there. We have added land to the cemetery, put up a new gate, and created lanes through the sagebrush. Still a lot of work to do!
|Tweety Emmett||RE: Frank and Elizabeth Rielly|
They are fine photographs, it's not easy looking for tombstones, it's hard work, I appreciate that you were so kind to do the leg work.
Thank you so much.

HI Mark's mom,
I wanted to ask your permission to copy and publish the photograph for their tombstone for my public family tree. I will be sure to cite the photograph as yours. Thank you.

Thank you very much for posting the two obituaries on Horace Greer, Memorial# 88705574 memorial. I really appreciate it.
|Dian Price||La Porte cemetery|
I am creating pages for two people in the La Porte cemetery. I took pictures of the stones. Can you put those pictures on their pages for me? Sorry, I am a contributor for Find a Grave but haven't learned how to do this.
I too am a mother of a deceased child and one of these graves is his.
Thanks, Dian Price
