Bio Photo "We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

Linda, Thank you very much for your time and finding my Great Grandfather's Headstone. Strange that there was no information on it.

RE: Please delete photo
Hi Linda - Sorry - I thought it would link to me. Please remove the one from George and Ursula Winterfeldt? Thanks so much for the quick reply.

Please delete photo
Hello Linda - I tried to send you a private message but your email doesn't seem to work anymore. Could I ask that you please delete the picture you posted of my parents gravestone? We did not ask you to do this, it would have been nice if you had asked us before posting it as I know they would not want it.
Thank you!
