|Bio and Links|
I've been drawn to cemeteries for as long as I can remember, having often played among the old tombstones at Oxbow Lakeside Cemetery while growing up in White Lake, Michigan.|
If you would like to leave a flower for my Dad, I'd really appreciate it. Please & thank you! :) December 10, 2013 will be his 29th Angel Day. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, he was a wonderful person and parent.
My family genealogy names include Burks, Kerr, Ellison, Fitzgerald, Glazier, Vidlicka, Corley (Curley, Kurlick), Tomorackas and Tiscavitch.
It's taken me a while but I have added a page for my sweet Jackpot, who is one in a long line of beloved furbabies who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 1988, I've explored celebrity graves as a hobby and along the way have been just as moved by the neighboring "civilian" headstones that surround and outnumber them. I have been a member of The Hollywood Underground since March 1998.
I run the GrandViewMemorialPark.info website in order to keep the public informed about the ongoing closure/lawsuit story happening there in Glendale, Calif. The cemetery is expected to re-open in late 2013.
Special thanks goes out to fellow graver Linda Mustion, who has worked tirelessly to record over 6,000 memorials to the Grand View FindAGrave page one by one. I'm also a member of the Grand View Volunteers group which added over 30,000 memorials to Grand View's page in 2010. We continue to fulfill requests and manage/transfer memorials to families seeking information on loved ones there.
Adventures in Grave Hunting is my cemetery-related blog. I haven't updated it in a while but the archives of old stories go back several years. I plan to resume updating it when Grand View gets back on its feet and I complete the book about its history. I have a huge backlog of interesting stories just waiting to be told when I have more free time.
My first contribution to Find A Grave was in August 2000, in honor of my grave hunting buddy Denis Svoboda.
I collect vintage photographs of grave markers and of people posing in cemeteries, wondering about the stories behind the snapshots. I like to match them with Find A Grave memorials that are already online, virtually reuniting loved ones whose pictures somehow ended up for sale here and there. See the evolving results here.

|Betty Allaire||Actor Harry Glazier|
I was looking at the Chronicling America, Historic American Newspaper on line. I read an article in the Los Angeles Herald dated December 19,1908.
FUNERAL OF ACTOR TO BE HELD AT GLENDALE.
Body of actor Harry Glazier Interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery Sunday services at 10:30 o'clock
There is more in the article.
I thought that since you made some memorial for the Glazier family you might like to check it out.

I know I haven't checked in in awhile but as you can imagine I have still been trying to fight the good fight where this grave is concerned. Today I emailed and it's gong to the manager of the cemetery.
If you speak to Robert's sister's please tell them I have not given up!
|Micah ||Sammy Davis gravesite|

I am Jennie Eva Hughes granddaughter and I would like to know if you are related to Jennie and if so thru whom. I have been many times to Jennie's gravesite here in Spokane Washington,and the name of the cemetery is Riverside Memorial Park.

|Terry Goodwin||RE: Reynolds photos|
You are quite welcome, glad to be of assistance.
|Gina Waren||Robert Thetford never ending|
I have not forgotten and I have not stopped calling. Please give my sincere apologies to his sisters for the amount of time this has taken it is crazy!
But, I will not stop until I finish this or I'm forever banned from that cemetery!
|Deanna Saucier-Renard||Saucier Boys|
Im not sure who those boys were in the Eluther Saucier photo but for sure Saucier's... the one on the right looks much like my brother Rocky (David) Son of Donald James Saucier from Michigan.
|Gina Waren||Robert Thetford - the on going saga|
Just thought I should check in since I haven't. Needless to say I haven't managed to get the Valhalla guy to call me back for almost two weeks now. I will wait until this afternoon and start calling his manager. I don't know what else I can do at this point. It's sad but I will never try to do this again at this cemetery.
So very sorry, but know that not one day goes by without me thinking about Baby Robert and his sister's waiting.
|Gina Waren||Robert Thetford|
First sorry for the two..empty messages. I emailed you yesterday via your Yahoo account, did you get it? This one is a follow up. I am still meeting with the Valhalla people and had hoped to get this done yesterday. I called again this afternoon and my point person had left for the day.
I may not ever try to fulfill another claim at Valhalla, which is too bad as I am so close but I will finish this one!
I left an 8 page print out of all the requests there for the manager so he can see how much people would like to have that connection still with their loved ones. All of which would need to be searched by the staff since none have locations.
Please give my apologies to Robert's sisters for this new delay.
