Bio and Links
Bio Photo Cemeteries are "a memorial and a record. (They are) not a mere field in which the dead are stowed away unknown; it is a touching and beautiful history, written in family burial plots, in mounded graves, in sculptured and inscribed monuments. (They tell) the story of the past, not of its institutions, or its wars, or its ideas, but of its individual lives,--of its men and women and children, and of its household. (A cemetery) is silent, but eloquent; it is common, but it is unique. We find no such history elsewhere; there are no records in all the wide world in which we can discover so much that is suggestive, so much that is pathetic and impressive." ~~ Joseph Anderson, American clergyman (1836-1916)

Hi Linda
I just filled some of your requests, that go back to 2013. I noticed you had notes to me on a couple of them. I live far enough away that I don't get the automatic email requests and unless I actually go to a specific cemetery page and look at the requests I don't see them.
How are you?

RE: Hi,
Linda, Sorry about messages, I'm not sure what happened. A hip replacement, oh my! I hope it went well and that you are in less pain and more mobile. Sorry you had to go through that. I think of you often, some times people just have a connection. Its nice. My son is divorcing, living with me with his two children, life has changed and the house is full again. Glad to help him, love the grandchildren. Lots of laundry, cooking, clean up, you know what I mean. Grocery and water bills through the roof. Homework, summer camp, dishwasher runs every day. Just when things got quiet after raising four children, buying cars, putting them through college, weddings. TMI Love, Diane

RE: Elizabeth Lewis King
Thank you for the new photos! Much better! :-)
Yes, if I post them anywhere else (I don't expect to), I'll certainly credit you and let you know.
Thanks again!

RE: Gundersons-Bluff View
Hi Linda,

Thanks for the offer. If you'd like I could take the Gunderson's in Vermillion but they are only related through marriage so I do not have a great connection to them.
