Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a swimming pool contractor M-F and on most weekends I teach scuba diving lessons. I take photos above and below water.
My Grandmother is burried in Pacific Crest Cemetery and a Grandfather at Green Hills, both of these and Roosevelt Memorial Cemetery are very close to where I live so I don't mind going there to photograph headstones or markers for families.
I love the search for my ancestors and I'm sure you do too. I have been on for a few years now and really appreciate the few photos that I have, I think of my photos to the members here on "Find a Grave" as gifts to them and the generations to come to share about their families.
Unlike many who take photos for this web sites, I WANT you to use my photos with your family tree.
Take and enjoy - share with your family and friends. These photos I take are a small gift from me to you. They are YOUR family, not mine, they are "copyright free" so use them as you see fit.

Thank you so very much for obtaining this photo! I am from Missouri and the chances of me getting to California to take the photo myself was not possible.
I really appreciate you taking the time to volunteer to go out of your way to add this photo to Woodrow's Memorial. Your kindness and generosity is touching; may it be repaid tenfold!
Blessings to You!

RE: Jesse DeLaTorre Photo request
Hi Walt, Thanks for the info.. I placed a photo request when I was searching the F.A.G. page for wilmington cemetery and was looking for Delatorre family that was placed there.. I didn't create the memorial or add any info to it and was hoping a photo would answer some questions. Thanks for letting me know.. now I'm curious as to who the other Delatorre you mentioned is. Just trying to track down family. Anyways.. thanks again
--Mrs. Delatorre

Charles is buried with his wife in same cemetery so I do not know why you would say there is no record of him in this cemetery.

Thank you for taking the picture of the unmarked grave of Robert Groves in Green Hills. I looked again and saw the unmarked notation. He has been difficult to find and I appreciate your time taking the posting the pictures.
