Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in middle Tennessee and love the peace and tranquility here. I volunteer because so many have helped me. I will gladly transfer memorials.

Please keep in mind that volunteers use their own gas, their own supplies, lose their phones, put wear and tear on their cars AND knees and sometimes fall on their faces/tushes in briars just to capture that elusive photo for you. So, be nice to us, we're out there to be of help to you.

You can use my photos in your geneology and on, but I would appreciate you crediting me for the pictures that you use.

RE: Young Cemetery Request
Thank you for your quick consideration of transferring Charley and Pauline Brock to my care. It is much appreciated and I look forward to expanding on my family memorials.
Thank you again, Darlene

Young Cemetery Request
I am interested in a memorial you created in the Young Cemetery in White County for Charlie and Pauline Brock # 105707302 and # 105707353

Are you a relative? They are my great uncle and aunt. I am curious to find out if we might be related.

If they is no relation would you mind my asking for their memorials to be transferred over to me?

I have quite a bit of family information that I am about to add and update and it would be so
much easier if I had it in my name instead.

Please let me know
I really look forward to hearing form you so that I can get started on my family.

Thank you for your time,

Lost Creek
Texten, I have an unusual request for you to do something for my wife and me. In the Lost Creek Cemetery, we now have both of our sons buried with space in between them where we the parents will be buried. We already have a gravestone in place. Would you please put a photo of the parents stone on each of the son's memorials? If for any reason you would prefer not to fill this request, I would understand. Thank You in advance. Ralph and Della Franks

RE: Lost Creek Again
Hello again Texten, In addition to the loss of our son, we also went thru the sale of our house in Lebanon and the building of a new one here near him. Now we have no son and two new houses to care for and one of them to sell. I really would like to talk to you seriously sometime soon about taking over the management of all the memorials at LOST CREEK. There is no family member capable or interested in doing it. Don't let me talk you into something you had rather not do. We can talk further by email if need be. Ralph

Gary Franks at Lost Creek
Also Texten, You had also done a great job on Gary's gravestone photo. You probably noticed the gravestone between them as being the gravestone of us, their mother and father. We are age 78 now and one of these days, maybe you can make photos of ours or even create a memorial if someone hasn't already done it. Thanking you in advance for anything you have done or will do. Ralph and Della Franks

Bruce Franks at Lost Creek
Hello Texten, You are the most conscientious and prompt photographer in the entire Find A Grave network. We had lost our second and last son and got his gravestone placed and his mother had made the wreath especially for his stone. Then two days later I went in to request a photo be made and found that you had already done a superlative job of getting that done. So, I quickly made a copy of your stone photo and handed it to his mother and we both were enormously blessed. We have been terribly grieved over the loss of both of our sons, but you provided us a ray of hope that we are starting to move out of the grief. Thank You so much. Ralph and Della Franks

Mattie England photo request
I want to thank you for the beautiful job of the photos of Mattie's gravestone and the photo of her on it. I was trying to find a photo of her to put on her memorial, but that photo is a beautiful one of her. I am so glad you did that. I am grateful to you for taking the time out of your busy day to do that.

Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave.
