Bio and Links
Bio Photo In late August of this year, I had a stroke, this has greatly hampered my ability to do Find a Grave. I cannot get out to cemeteries, my ability to work on the internet is has improved, to the point where I can keep up with edits and messages. If you sent an e-mail that I have not responded to, it was probably missed, please sens it again. We are praying that soon I will be back to 100%, and will be able to get back to doing everything I once did.

We discovered Find a Grave while doing research on our family trees. From there has grown an interest in recording cemeteries for others to use. We are willing to transfer the memorials of people who are not related to us, to anyone who has a connection with the person, whether within guidelines or not. Don't hesitate to ask.

Feel free to use our photos, they are put here so people can use them. Proper credit is not only appreciated but the right thing to do.

Our family tree includes the following surnames, Read, Clark, Nelson, Fletcher, Forshee, Shirley, Diederich, and Bohl.

We live in Palm Beach county, Florida. Currently we are focused on Pinecrest cemetery in Lake Worth. If you would like a different photo on a memorial we created in Pinecrest, let us know. Less time is spent on photos taken while mowing the rows to document the cemetery, than is spent on photos to fulfill specific requests. We can go back and do a request quality photo for a memorial you are interested in if you would like.

"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness, the tender mercies of its people, their loyalty to high ideals, and their regard for the laws of the land."- Eighteenth-century British statesman William Gladstone

Grace Becker
I am searching for the headstone of Grace Becker (married to Irvin Becker). she is suppose to be buried at pinecrest but is not listed in Find a Grave. I see that you have several other Beckers. Do you know if Grace or Irvin are near by? Thanks. Joyce Hoffman

Messer menorial photo
Dear Dan and Karen,

Happy to see you have the photo you needed. Your request was still active so I included him in our picture session at Woodlawn. I did not have the info on George Messer so I was unsuccessful. I was pleasantly surprised to see the photo was already in place.
Hope that means you are well!

I hope this request finds you on the mend. I was wondering if you could transfer the above memorial to me. Alice King (her maiden name was Lazette)was my great-grandfather's niece, making her a cousin. Thank you. My #is 47038289.
