I'm working on my life's goal of visiting 1,000 famous graves in my lifetime (and hopefully more)! You can see who I have visited, who I want to visit, the people that I've wanted to visit the most, and the people I want to visit the most in my virtual cemetery list. I am also working on visiting all of the Presidential Libraries. My avatar is Patrick Swayze's star.
If you need/want to email me, please put Find a Grave (or a variation) OR the name of the person's grave you are emailing about. If it is a non-famous person please also include Find a Grave (or a variation) also in the subject line. Otherwise, it will be deleted as Spam. Also, it is better to email me than to leave a message here. I check my email much more often than the Find a Grave page these days. Thanks!
Lucien & Nannie Parrish Thank you so much for taking a photo of the area where my Great Grandparents are buried, in Eden Cemetery. I was unaware they had no grave markers. A bit of a jab to my heart, but I thank you for the effort you put forth.
RE: Felix Corsi You're quite welcome. I was honored to visit your dad, (and your mom). I'm very sorry that they are no longer here, and please accept my condolences to you and your family. Your dad passed away 9 days after my mom. ~~~ And I remember, and miss those penny candy machines too. (loved when they had the tiny little toy charms in them). Regards, Patty
