Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please visit my dad John Joseph "JJ" Farley and my mom Arlene Ida Wittenberg and other family members that I have linked together. If the mood strikes, thank you for leaving a flower or token.



Please DO NOT make requests by leaving a message.

Use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial to ask for any corrections, updates, or transfers to be made. I need the links the "EDIT" tab provides. Please make sure you're signed in as I need the link to your member page as well.


The 6th option on the "EDIT" tab - "Suggest Any Other Addition or Correction" is a free-form e-mail sent to the manager of the memorial (even when they have their e-mail address hidden from public view) and should be used when -

1. you'd like bio info added (or corrected),
2. you'd like to request a transfer,
3. anything that requires an explanation or source info; or if you'd like to contact the member without leaving a public message.



The "EDITS" tab on the top part of your profile page is NOT the same as the "EDIT" tab on each memorial page. This is where you will check on the status of most of the edits you request as well as approving or denying most of the edits sent to you.


Please read the FAQ's!(AKA - Help with FAG) There have been many changes to the FAQ's lately, please re-read them. If you can't find an answer or if what you're looking for isn't clear, please come to the Discussion Forums. There are many people there with years of experience on this website and are more than happy to help.


I do not link to memorials that are - "Burial: Unknown Location". Find the grave first, then we add all the other info.


I add these memorials as a tribute to those who have passed as well as allowing friends and relatives who cannot travel to "visit" and pay their respects.

All information shown on the memorials I create, has been taken from obituaries, provided by another member, was available on the funeral home website or taken from SSDI.


Many thanks to all the volunteers who have added their hard work, love and sanity to create these memorials. Without your dogged trekking through brush, nettles, rain, snow, ornery cemetery attendants, dusty historical registers and the like to photograph and record the resting places of those that have gone on before us, we would not have this website.


My heartfelt thanks to bill for sponsoring several of my family's memorials. He is a very kind man with a wicked sense of humor.

RE: Missing You
I'm so glad to hear from you! Folks said that you'd just taken a break, but it's reassuring to hear you confirm that. When a hobby stops being fun, it's wise to take a break; I'm glad you did what you needed to do, but I do look forward to your return.

Yes, I'm in remission! The doctors won't use the word "cured" for another 4.5 years, but the surgeon is sure that he cut out all the cancer except for, perhaps, stray microscopic cells; and the oncologist is sure that the chemotherapy knocked out any of those stray cells. So, I'm considering myself to be cured. (I'll have quarterly scans to make sure.) Thank you for your friendship, and for your prayers, Emily.

Missing You
I haven't seen you in the Forums in awhile, maybe a couple of weeks? I hope you're alright, and I miss you over there.

You are a pleasure to work with as well. Thanks for all that you do! :)

RE: LINC Photos
Hi Emily, You're very welcome as always. It IS nice to be out in warmer weather and even better to see the ground in a color other than white....
Just so you know, the fences are back up around parts of 3A & 2T. The parts that aren't are just dirt. (A little snow came in handy to cover that up for pictures.) Now it looks like they're about to start on 2J & part of 2G. The "Under Renovation" signs were up yesterday. So far they're still accessible - the only fence is along the walk by the columbarium. I'm guessing it won't stay that way.
Have a good one...Glenn

Hi - I just discovered a SAC from you which contained this statement:

"I'm hoping that we won't turn into two
of "those" type members; who refuse to update or add info because the info comes
from "that person"."

I can guarantee that I have never refused to update or add information because of where the info came from. Nor would it have ever crossed my mind to do so. I can only guess from your statement that you have. How sad and unnecessary.

RE: Memorial 143579494 and spouse
I didn't know the comments on a declined edit wasn't working. Thanks for the heads up; you are not the only one I've requested info on a declined edit request, now I know why.

I agree with pretty much everything you said. However, I do believe the space is most likely added by someone who can't type fluently. They type in "all-caps" and the only way to distinguish the "Mc" followed by another capital letter is to pad a space in the middle of the last name.

This being the case, the probability of the space "not" belonging is much higher than 50%/50%. I'd guess that 99% of the time, neither "Mc" nor "Mac" are follow by a space, except when added by someone who types in all caps.

The stone will be engraved using capital letters. If the first "c" uses the same size font as the capital "M" then a space will be padded. If the first "c" is engraved with a smaller font than the "M" then there will be no space added.

The above paragraph is true more than 90% of the time.

Again, wait and see. Then do it the way you feel is best. I'm more than happy with that.

My only real complaint was no "declined comment" and you've explained that away.

We just came back from the cemetery. I went on a fact finding mission and to get my wife out of the house. She had back surgery Tuesday a week ago and still has 8 staples in her back. She's getting cabin fever (specially now with the sun shinning bright), now that the snow is gone.

Have another great day,

Do you...
Think that people are addicted to arguing on the forums? They seem to relish it so much and love to get shit going. It is absurd. It is the reason I seldom read or go there any more. It is insane. Is it not??

Memorial 143579494 and spouse
Good morning Emily,

You declined my edit requests for this memorial and for her spouse's memorial. I asked you to remove the space form their last name. Your reason for declining was "Not accurate - Their data conflicts with my data."

How could the data conflict with your data when it is spelled exactly as I requested (w/o the space) in the obituary you posted?

The obituary was written by the family (or funeral director with input from the family); don't you think the family would have spelled their own last name correctly?

If you some other reason for not wanting to remove the space, then please say so. When declining an edit request you can add a comment to explain why. I'd be happy with a more appropriate reason for declining that just clicking on one of the vague choices from the drop down menu.

As always, have another great day,
(We're still getting heavy frost overnight, with 1-2 inches of snow predicted for Monday morning.)
