Bio Photo First of all, if you are looking for a family members grave and find a picture here, please contact me for permission to use it. Whether or not you were directed here by Ancestry or Billion graves.com. Please ask me first. Thank you

Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.

I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."


THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

USS Pyro - The Final Watch Project
Cont'
(as I went to save her number after we hung up, there were only 6 digits displayed on my phone... It may have been because she was calling from out of the country)

USS Pyro - The Final Watch Project
Albert PC Aliangan #102389292
Hoping you can help me... Just within the last 24 hours, you transferred Albert's grave to his daughter Annie. Her father served on the USS Pyro years ago and she just contacted me by phone yesterday... I assume she found my contact info through the USS Pyro Association's web page, as I'm one of their board officers. We discussed her father's grave, as there's no headstone and hasn't been since he was buried in 2012. We discussed the Pyro Association helping her with the cost & organization of if since her family doesn't have the money and they are now in the Philippines. Regretfully, she didn't give me an email address before we hung up and we agreed her tel no would be on my caller ID and I could save it after our call (no need to write it down). I am left with no way of reconnecting with her :( I told her about find a grave and she was going to establish an account as we hung up. I then also realized he has two (duplicate) memorials. One is mine (170621749) and the one you transferred to her was yours. She must have sent you an email for the request... Could I ask you to please forward her email address to me? I'd be forever grateful. You can see the photo of his memorial that I'm managing and it clearly shows a pile of dirt :( You can also verify I'm legit either by my profile here or on the USS Pyro's website. Hope that helps ease any question you may have. I promise you I'm not a psycho trying to get an email address on her. Thanks so much for your help!

RE: Helen Brown-Rowley
If we all work together the memorials will be as complete and correct as possible. Thank you too Donna, I know you have done a lot towards this goal.

RE: Laughlin
hi i love doing this, to ''reunite'' people with their loved ones.....i was trying to find on ''google'' anything about the ''finding of the bones in yosemite for carol ann, but nothing came up and i couldn't find anything about any obiturary. i remember a girl being murdered in yosemite but i don't think that this was her......great find, i love to see what you find, if you want to find any special stuff, i'm on ancestry and i do think that the data that is published is pretty good, the census takers might not get all the dates and names right, but the data is really there.more fun for me with you than redoing any data that my father collected at the original sites with the times prior to xerox and internet, again thanks for all your hard work and i'll be in touch..we really should go and hike around a cemetery one of these days, frances ann

RE: You missunderstood
I will remove mine please note on yours that the CADI is under Brown, someone else most likely will put another memorial up if you don't.

You missunderstood
I made the memorial because I did not know about your memorial until yesterday because you have it up under the wrong surname. I would have never made it had I found yours. If you will fix yours to the correct name I will delete mine. It is never about numbers for me but being accurate. Eileen
