Bio and Links
Bio Photo What began as a way to memorialize only members of my family has turned into something larger and seemingly open-ended. Most of my memorials are not for my relatives.

I have helped to inventory and photograph two cemeteries in their entirety: East Batavia Cemetery in Batavia, Illinois and Oakwood Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois. I also have done extensive work in Calvary Cemetery and Glen Oak Cemetery in West Chicago, Illinois.

I have tried to add as much information as is readily available. I will gladly make corrections or add information. I try to process requests as quickly as possible, but please allow the recommended time. Please do NOT use flowers for these purposes. Doing so is against FindAGrave guidelines. Flowers are to be tokens of respect; flowers left for any other purpose will be reported.

Feel free to use any of my photographs for non-commercial use, but please give credit where credit is due.

Thank you to those who have added photographs and flowers to my memorials. They are appreciated. Please add appropriate photographs to any of my memorials, and I would very much like to know that you have done so. I would like to see the photographs myself.

Out-of-guidelines transfer requests will be evaluated individually. Please do not take me to task if I do not transfer when such a request is made. Inappropriate or abusive comments will be reported.

"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

Thanks, Dennis, I sent my memorial obit off to one of the others and asked if they could add the obit and request the memorial with a photo to be placed on their memorial. Cest la vie. I'm not related and deleted my erroneous memorial with the mis-spellinng. Cest a vie - the Aurora Be-Confused (as my sister-in-law calls it.)

Good evening DESchuett. In reviewing my messages, I don't see where I thanked you for the gravemarker and gravestone photos you added to Mr. Fagan's memorial on September 29. I apologize for any delay in this acknowledgement. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. Thank you so much!

RE: Headstone Photos
Glad that you like them. Thanks for checking as to where they were buried. Most people will not do that.

i found Frank's grave but the cemetery attendant stated it was unmarked. I took a picture of the site as best I could. I hope that helps some.
