I am an Elite Member of the "KICKED OUT OF FOREST LAWN GLENDALE, CA CLUB."
I started visiting and researching (in order to find) interesting graves over 30 years ago while traveling in the military. I have received emails from all over the world through Find-A-Grave.
I love to travel by car, plane and Harley; and my trips usually involve some time at a cemetery at some point.
Find-A-Grave is a favorite website of mine.

All I can say, is you rock. I sent a SAC to you for Corinne Robinson. I hope it is not too confusing--just let me know if you have a suggestion on how to fix her family links.

I see that several years back, you submitted a photo of the monument to Andrew Johnson. He was a distant cousin of mine. May I have your permission to copy that photo to my tree in ancestry.com? I would be more than happy to credit you as the photographer. Thank you. - B. MacBean

I am not sure what your connection is with Elisha Payne, or Hamilton, NY. Yesterday while on a Findagrave volunteer photo shoot at the Madison Street Cemetery here in Hamilton, I also took photos of the various monuments for Elisha, plus cleaned up and trimmed around his ground flat monument over the grave. I discovered the Findagrave.com web page for Madison Street Cemetery has a limit of photos allowed. I would like to offer you my photos in the event you might like to use any of them. Not that your submitted photos were not nice, but in the event you would like to use any of mine.
P.S. I can be contacted directly at:

Memorial Day 2012
"From the president of the United States and grateful Nation."
I remember the words so clearly as they handed my Mother the flag. I had never heard those words before that. As I stood there on that cold November Day, thoughts came swirling in my head. I flashed back to my fathers entire demeanor. How he organized his clothing drawers were. How he lived with honor, how military he was. How he had wanted to be in the National Cemetery and I was so against it.
It was like it was all coming together in my head, I was seeing experiences known only to those understanding military tradition.
He was part of this white sea of headstones belonging to the men and women who valiantly defended our nation. His military back bone had always been there.
He served as a Chaplin ministering to Vets at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital for years. He was on the honor guard for awhile. He gave blood routinely as he was AB negative, the rarest blood type in the world. Many nights he would get a 2 am call and out the door he would go to give blood because someone was in need. It took me years to understand what a military man is. He lived our nation and preserving it's goodness my entire life.
Memorial Day means so many different things to our society. The start of summer, picnics, it is the official end of winter where I live.
To veterans it is a time of reflection, of their courage, sacrifices, pride and loss. My son has lost 2 friends to the Iraq war, and another that came back severely injured and is struggling with his injuries and each day is a gift as those days are slipping away from him.
Memorial Day we bring into memory those that have fought for our freedom. I would like to thank you, for your Father, Son, daughter, husband, ancestor, or maybe even you, for the scarifies your families have endured to keep America out of harms way.
That as we begin Memorial Day 2012 our families remain strong and we are enduring together what our nation is all about....
"First in WAR ... First in PEACE ... and First in the HEARTS of his countrymen."
