Bio Photo Greetings!

I've been a wife for 28 years and a mother of 2 remarkable young people. While I have been a nurse for more than 30 years, part of my life's dream was to be a history teacher. I love the things I can learn with finding graves, especially, when I am able to learn of the accomplishments of those people whose graves I photograph.

If there are any additions or corrections to be added to a memorial I have entered, please let me know.

Also, if I have created a memorial for your loved one that you wish not have included on this website, contact me and I will delete it.

Benjamin Raymond O'Toole's gravestone photo
Hi: Some time ago you kindly added a gravestone photo of my brother Benjamin Raymond O'Toole, Jr.'s gravestone on my memorial of him.
I wanted to tell you that since that photo was taken, unfortunately, there was damage done to the stone. Part of his birth year was "nicked" to the point where the 1 in 1931 was almost impossible to read.
I contacted the managers of the cemetery and asked if I could have another grave stone put him. The stone was rough also. Some were and some weren't. Well, since the stone was from a historic period, World War II, they weren't sure if they could replace it. They did replace it and now there's a new nice stone there. We took a photo of it, but can't seem to get it onto the computer. We will eventually. I'll let you know when we do. I would like you to keep yours there even when we put the new one up.
I just wanted to let you know.

I seem to have spotted a bug, and dont know who to turn too... hoping you might be able to work it out, or know who to turn too.
In the following cemetery, under all the famous interments, the two functions:

Maybe its a temporary glitch in the system...

Benjamin Raymond O'Toole's memorial
Hi: I wanted to let you know that my brother Ben's stone is going to be removed and another will be put in its place. The reason this is being done is that since you took the photo of his stone in 2006, some damage was done to it by accident. I believe what happened is that when someone mowed near his grave, part of his birth year was chipped almost off. So instead of it saying 1931, part of the one is damaged. Also the stone is not as smooth as others around it. The cemetery has agreed to put up a new one and it should be up in about 40 days.
I'll let you know when it's up. I'd appreciate it if you would not remove yours until the new one is up and I can figure out how to download or upload the new stone photo.
I have really appreciated your kindness in taking a photo of his grave.
Take care.
