Bio and Links
I am retired now and love going to old cemeteries. When I get a request I always print out all the requests for that cemetery even if they are from several years back. Also when taking a picture of a double or multiple monument I like to get the photo of all the loved ones. When I do this, I take the time to enter it onto the Find A Grave site even though there has not been a request. I wish I had time to do the whole cemetery but with so many requests just the little extra I do is very time consuming. Maybe later. So if you have several requests please be sure to post them with all the info you might have. All Photos I submit I do because I like helping people find their loved ones grave. So in saying that, I give my permission for those loved ones to use my photos in other sites. Isn't sharing what its all about? Its very interesting to read and look at the designs that family have made for their love ones. Also the interesting people you might meet during the photo outings. I am new at this and have already encountered very friendly people who are connected either to the church, cemetary or a loved one. I wish to thank the people for their time and thoughtfulness of an endless job in maintaining the graves of our love ones. Even though some are volunteers their job is not easy. We seem to have forgotten that it costs to keep up the maintenance. The price of gas is not cheap and volunteers are having to pay for it out of their own pockets. So please, donate to help keep up the maintenance. As one caretaker told me just the other day, every little bit helps. So please donate!

RE: Re: Transfer of Josephine Wood
Hi Gerry, yes it worked. Thank you very much, I'm trying to collect as much of my family as I can. I appreciate you setting it up very much. Without you I would not have known where she was.
