Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was a carpenter for 25yrs. then a Building Trades Instructor for a College 24 yrs before retiring, now I have a Video Hobby. Film Transfers to Video Tape & DVDs, also Slides & Photos, old Records & Cassettes to Compact Disc, all for Customers. Other hobbies are genealogy, buying and selling on ebay, building and working with computers. Thanks, Don.

When a person dies, I check to see if they have been posted, (not months & years while they are still living.)if NOT I post them. Posting while they are STILL LIVING is WRONG!!! - -DON'T ASK me to DELETE MINE if the DUPLICATE was posted while they were STILL LIVING.

Who wants to go to a Cemetery and Mourn a Cold Granite Head Stone while the person is Life and well?

Evergreen cemetery updates
Thank you for bearing with me for the edits I've sent (mostly plot locations) on many Evergreen cemetery memorials. I've had a listing of memorials without headstone photos and over the past few days have gone out to the cemetery and whittled down the number of memorials that didn't already have headstone photos. Quite a few of burials in the past six months already have their inscriptions engraved, so with so many people putting up flowers in advance of Memorial Day this was a good time to get photos. I have a couple of sources for the plot locations so after getting the photos taken that is why I've sent many plot location edits to you.

At this point, I've gotten about all of the fairly new headstone inscriptions taken care of. As I notice more recent DOD inscriptions engraved I'll get those photos and send plot edits.

For now, though, about all that are left are some much older burials where I can get plot view photos for burials without headstones. Will wait until after the Memorial Day activities to work on those as trying to dodge cars and people right now (and rain) hasn't been easy.

In a few cases I took new photos of joint inscriptions for spouses that had died some years ago and posted the new photos to those memorials, so that both spouses with full DOD inscriptions are represented.

Sure glad I have a digital camera - couldn't do this project with film!

living people
THANK YOU SO MUCH for not posting living people. I feel it is very distasteful and ignorant of people who do this. I do not want to be posted to find-A-grave until after I have passed.
