|Bio and Links|
So many are asking about the bio picture I'm using, it's from a poem written by Monte Leon Manka titled The Shadow on the Wall.
I enjoy working with Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime.
Please REMEMBER I do this in my FREE time out of respect for the families. If mistakes are made, BE KIND and remember this isn't a paying JOB.
We are here to help each other, and it would give me honor to know I have helped one. Thank you for caring about the family I also care about so deeply.
You may use any of my photo's for genealogy purpose's, providing a note of credit is given, and send me a message on where it is being used.
Note: Requesting Memorial Transfers
For transfer request please use the edit button, then Suggest, for each request, this is the only way I'll handle it otherwise your requests will go unanswered. Be sure to include YOUR FAG number.
FYI: For our Veterans Graves
While visiting some cemeteries you may notice that headstones marking certain graves have coins on them, left by previous visitors to the grave.
These coins have distinct meanings when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America's military, and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin.
A coin left on a tombstone or at the grave site is meant as a message to the deceased soldier's family that someone else has visited the grave to pay respect.
Leaving a penny at the grave means simply that you visited.
A nickel indicates that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together.
A dime means you served with him in some capacity.
By leaving a quarter at the grave, you are telling the family that you were with the solider when he was killed.
According to tradition, the money left at graves in national cemeteries and state veterans cemeteries is eventually collected, and the funds are put toward maintaining the cemetery or paying burial costs for indigent veterans.
In the United States, this practice became common during the Vietnam war, due to the political divide in the country over the war; leaving a coin was seen as a more practical way to communicate that you had visited the grave than contacting the soldier's family, which could devolve into an uncomfortable argument over politics relating to the war.
Some Vietnam veterans would leave coins as a down payment to buy their fallen comrades a beer or play a hand of cards when they would finally be reunited.
The tradition of leaving coins on the headstones of military men and women can be traced to as far back as the Roman Empire.

You have a grave photo posted on Michael Pachin's memorial. #54267394 Also listed at the bottom of this gravestone is F.R. Pachin Jr, which is an infant sibling of Michael's that is also buried in this plot.
Would you be so kind as to add this photo to Franklin Pachin's memorial as well? Memorial # is 54267393.
Thank you for all the work you do on Find A Grave!

Do you want me to wait for Lois's death date scroll to be added to her crypt or go with what's there now? One of Robts pics shows her crypt as it is now. Whatever you want. Cem said it may be a few weeks on the death date. Thanks Colleen
