Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was a young teen I walk through cemeteries. There is such a peace that I feel when gazing upon the memorials of the departed. Often times I would wonder if anybody still cared about those who have gone before. I liked to think so. After all, one day we all will be gone and will want to be remembered as well. As I have gotten older and I realize the days ahead may not be as many as the days behind, I love walking through cemeteries more than ever.

I like to imagine what life may have been like for those now buried. Many family lots seem to yell, "we had a story". I love to take photographs and try to learn of those who walked the earth a long time before me. Some of the prettiest cemeteries are in my own back yard here in Green Bay, Wisconsin and they are surrounded by history. I love walking to these local cemeteries because the walk takes me through some gorgeous neighborhoods with awesome houses. Many of those individuals who are buried in those cemeteries may very well have lived in one of those houses or walked the same streets. I like to imagine what it was like back when things were slower paced.

Because I am also a history buff these walks to and through local cemeteries tend to satisfy some of that passion for the past. I am delighted to start paying tribute to deceased family and friends. I feel it is an honor to fulfill photo requests and I will try to take and edit quality pictures that will bring honor to those loved ones or ancestors. I am not doing this for numbers or game I simply enjoy helping people memorialize those who have gone ahead.

**When asking for corrections or suggestions please provide specifics such as memorial numbers and understandable sentences of what you want. Many of us are not familiar with some of the short hand lingo used by some contributors. I want to honor all requests and do them correctly the first time however if the request is obscure I may have to ignore it. Thank You**

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME REMINDER MESSAGES ABOUT THE EDIT TAB. I AM AWARE OF IT. I WILL GET TO THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THAT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE AS SOON AS SOME OF YOU WOULD LIKE. UNFORTUNATELY I AM EXTREMELY BUSY THIS SUMMER AND HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO MAKE IT TO THIS "VOLUNTEER" SITE ON A DAILY BASIS. I WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO TAKE CARE OF THESE TIME PERMITTING. HOPEFULLY WHEN THINGS SETTLE DOWN THIS FALL I CAN GET TO THE EDITS MORE QUICKLY. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR PATIENT COURTESY.

memorial transfer #110316863
Thank you for transferring the memorial for Charlotte Fisher to me. I will take good care of it!
(and P.S. with your "busy" note, you sound like many of us - I am thankful when winter arrives so that I have less excuses for not working on FindAGrave)

Bernard B. Haefs
I noticed that you are the manager of the memorial for Ralph Haefs (#109674037) in Zion Cemetery, Shawano Co., WI. I am looking for the graves of his father and mother who I believe are in the same cemetery or nearby. His father is Bernard B. Haefs b. 14 Aug. 1887 - d. Aug 1981. His mother is Linda Buelow Haefs b. 1881 - d. 1983. The surname may either be Haefs or Hoefs. I am working on the genealogy of the Haefs/Hoefs family and am trying to find all their final resting places. Bernard aka Ben was my grandfather's brother. I would appreciate any help you can give me in this matter. Thank you, MaryAnn Sall

Bertha M Kasten Gandt
Hi,

I am the grandson of Bertha Kasten Gandt. Her daughter, Elsie, was my mother. I'm updating her find a grave page and the page of my grandfather, Otto Gandt. I was wondering if you would consider changing the administrator of Bertha to me. She died about a year and a half before I was born.

Thanks,
Jon Strupp
