Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 memorials 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.

RE: Charles McGlone -John McGloyne

Wow! Cannot thank you enough for all your efforts. With the inclusion of Charles, all of my grandfather's siblings now have their final resting places located on Findagrave.

It's people like you that are making this such a successful site!

Again, Thanks!

Charles McGlone -John McGloyne

Hope I might be able to impose on you further for a bit of help. A month or so ago, you graciously responded to my request for a photo.

My grand Uncle was Charles Michael McGlone. According to Mt. Olivet records he is buried in Sec 19, Block 15, Lot 0, Grave 69

You sent and posted on Findagrave a picture for headstone for John McGloyne.

According to Mt. Olivet records, this John McGloyne is buried in Sec. 19, Block 15, Lot 0, Grave 107. As you can see, all identifiers are correct except for Grave number. I am hoping that at your leisure, you might help me straighten this out. Actually, I would be a bit surprised if there is indeed a stone on my Charles McGlone's burial space. Thank you so much for all your help.

RE: Duplicates
To VDR, I am deeply sorry for your loss and yes, I may have been a bit confused too, as I only was seeing the end result of my efforts, and not taking into consideration what was going on in your life.
Forgive me for being hasty. Michigan mother

Thank you very much for the picture. I had taken a picture of the grave back in 1980 and was wondering if it was the same grave site. Thank you for confirming that it was!
