Bio and Links
Bio Photo 9/13/2011 Well it is a sad day at my house. My cemetery buddy is now herding cows in Heaven. She passed away in my arms with my voice being the last she heard. She was my best friend, my grave marker and the best cemetery hopping buddy that any one could have. She will be missed. (tear)
Rest In Peace, Sweetie!

My Daddy dug graves for the City of West Plains, Missouri for many years and he has passed his love of cemeteries on to me. I just love to walk cemeteries, and Sweetie goes with me!
If you see any info that is not correct, or you would like changed, please let me know. I try to get things right, but sometimes I mess up!

Shannon Gaydash
AL Dean's grave site
My name is Shannon (Dean) Gaydash. AL Dean is my father. Please, Please change his name back to AL. His name was NOT Alonzo. If I had to guess, I would bet you heard that name from my Aunt Frances Dean who worked tirelessly as a volunteer for the cemetery. This is, however, inaccurate. I have birth certificate and military records and, of course, this is my father. I am a member of Find A Grave and would happily take over both my father and mother's(Donna Whiteside Dean) site. Thank you in advance.

Herman Otto Story Transfer
Thank you so much for what you did for me.
I appreciate the transfer and will make the
change. Lynn was my Aunt so I just wanted to make
the correction since she didn't have a son by that name.

You did a great job and like you, I love visiting cemeteries and taking pictures too.

I hope you are doing well and I will be thinking of you and Sweetie.. :)

Edit -Herman Otto Story

I'm Barry from Birmingham, AL.
I just located my Aunt and Uncle,
Lynn and Everett Cooper who moved to Ohio many years ago to make their home. They lived and died in the Fremont area and are buried
in Greenwood Cemetery. A very nice lady named
Judy who listed them transferred their memorials to me since Lynn was my Mother's sister.

I noticed that Herman Otto Story is listed as her
son. I know that is not correct and wanted to ask you to edit and remove his name from her memorial. His ID# is 23959645.

Lynn Cooper -ID# 116100858
Everett Cooper -ID# 116100872

My Aunt Lynn was born in 1920 and it
indicates that Mr. Story was born in 1912.
Anyway, if you would correct this for me I would be so grateful to you. And in reading your bio, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet dog. I have been through that and I certainly understand the loss.

Thank you so much.
I hope this finds you well.
