Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hometown of Hammond, Indiana, near Chicago. I now live in Boise, Idaho. I work for Cloverdale Funeral home in Boise, ID. Prior, I've been a paramedic since 1978, as an EMS provider, manager, educator, and in communications. I've been photographing cemeteries and grave sites for over 15 years. I have developed a presentation on the art and symbolism of gravestones and cemeteries which I give through the city's Community Education system and at genealogy/ family history conferences, and to various historical groups. I also give historical tours of cemeteries in Boise.

PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" TOOL THROUGH FINDAGRAVE FOR ANY CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONS. Requests to add obituaries to entries will have them edited to meet F.A.G. guidelines, mentioning no living relatives.

I'm always available to photograph graves in the Boise/Ada County, Idaho and surrounding areas. My ISP doesn't send me photo requests for some reason, but feel free to e-mail me directly if you have any requests. Before you send me corrections to entries, please make sure it's my entry and not just my photo on the entry.

RE: Hillside Cemetery
David,

Thank you so much for the kind words, it's greatly appreciated and means a lot to me. The Hillside Cemetery is what really got me going on Find A Grave.

I though it was so disgraceful the condition of the cemetery and the complete lack of respect vandals have for the people buried there.

When I found a transcription that was done in 1957, I thought how wonderful this person Vera took the time to record over 1200 headstones, if she hadn't done so we would never know the people buried there.

Thank you for the work you also do. It's people like you that make Find A Grave a wonderful site.

I also deleted some of my original photos of the Calligans (they were from 2006, taken on my phone's camera) so that you can add your pictures.

Take care my Find A Grave friend. God bless you and keep you safe.

Best Regards,
Bernice (Mark's Mom)

Hello,

her death date is 21 nov 1873 not 1872. I can send copy of obituary, death notices if you need them.

I would like to ask permission to use your photo for my family history and on Ancestry.com. I would, of course, credit you with the photo.

Thank you for the work you do, it is appreciated.
