|Bio and Links|
I have now been back in Colorado for a couple of years but I am still dreaming of waterways, bridges, moss covered trees, and yes the rain. I don't know if I will ever get use to the snow but I am told we need the snow for the water levels during the summer. I am unsure of the numbers but I believe rain works better and it doesn't require a shovel. |
I have been lucky enough to connect with family and friends. While in Oregon I had some great Colorado volunteers that helped me with my family's stones and have had the pleasure of meeting and working with them in Colorado and meeting new ones along the way.
I have had quite a couple of years, babies born; friends & family that have passed; reconnected with friends from high school; getting to know my granddaughter, and I have had two surgeries.
I have been working a number of cemeteries trying to help family find family and over the last three years have heard some of the saddest and happiest stories from family that were so happy I helped them locate a missing loved one. I still get surprised when someone mentions the number of memorials I have loaded or the number of photo requests I have completed. I do this for you and the numbers mean nothing. If I was somehow able to help one of you during the day find an aunt, uncle, sibling, grandparent, parent, or childhood friend – it is you that has given me a reason to smile that day and continue on with what I do.
Also, I believe in transferring photos to family no matter how many generations removed. I believe the four generation rule is used for hoarders that are interested in numbers and just want to keep your family. One of my pet peeves is people taking over or starting memorials that do not know how or have any intention of maintaining the site. I feel the family belongs to the family but should be with a family member that is going to insure that links and edits are going to be taken care of in a timely manner.
I do not transfer to non family – I volunteer my time for the family and that is where I want them to end up. I am impressed and grateful that there are people who take time to work on groups and any editing you require or photos you need – I am your girl but NO I don't transfer to non family.

Guess what!? the admins at Find A Grave merged the photos as well. Now there are two on this memorial.
Will you please delete one?
Thank you again for your prior prompt help.
|Whitfield||Ora Emma Waters Burgess @ Fishers Cemetery|
Thank you for being a photo volunteer.
You have posted a photo for Ora to: 70906553
This is a duplicate memorial and will be deleted/merged shortly.
Will you please post that same photo to: 19586729
The original memorial, instead?
Thanks in advance.

Thank you for trying to find the grave for Emma Ackerman. I appreciate your time and effort.
I don't know how this happened; I requested Ida Pettingill Smith and you got Ida Peterson Smith. I thank you for the effort though.

You're very welcome! Glad I was able to help.
|Stephany Wilson Wingard||Peter Duffy grave|
Thank you for both pictures. That is his wife, Opal V Duffy, next to him -- and my 1st cousin 2x removed. It gives me more information about her also. A bonus! She is part of a missing link in my grandmother's (father's mother's) family.
|Gale Boetius Perez||RE: Charles Klaiber Photo|
Thank you, I didn't notice! And thank you for Regina's maiden name.

Hi! Thank you so much for the beautiful photos. I love that they are taken in the snow, and appreciate very much the picture also showing the context. Thank you so much for taking your time in the cold weather to do this.
