|Bio and Links|
Single mother of two sons ~ 1 has 2 legs the other has 4. |
Spent my adult life working in customer service and as a caregiver to terminally ill friends and family. I have watched dementia and Alzheimers destroy memories that can never be recovered. It is for that reason I feel that each and every memorial should include as much information as possible. I have been told that this site is merely a database for locations of graves. And it is my opinion that if that were true we wouldn't be posting flowers & messages. We wouldn't be adding photos and bios. We would have nothing more than John Smith row 4 plot 7 Sunny Acres Cemetery.
Most of my memorials are created from grave photos. I search the site before I create the memorial. If I find that I have created a memorial and subsequently find that it is a duplicate of a BU memorial I send an Edit to the contributor advising them of the grave location and that I have a photo of the grave. If the location is added to the memorial I will post the grave photo and delete the memorial I created.
If the contributor does not respond or update the location within 30 days then I will keep my memorial and it's photo in place. As per the site guidelines the contributor is supposed to update the location within 30 days of creating it.
If I have posted a picture of a grave marker it is a picture that I have taken myself. I place no monetary value on these photos. I took the pictures to create or complete memorials and provide photo documentation of the grave site. If family or friends would like a copy of the grave site photos they are welcome to them.

My T-Day was quiet but lovely. A good mix of people I love (via telephone visits) and time to relax, reflect and count my blessings. Hope yours was great, too.
|EmilyAnn Frances May||Happy Thanksgiving|
Thank you for your visits to my family memorials and for all you do here. Many blessings to you and yours.
|Nancy E. (Nancy Jean) Graves||RE: Allegra Wanitta Scoby|
I found where she did pass away, but I cannot find an obituary for her. Short of purchasing her Death certificate, the only evidence I find for her death is on family search.org and ancestry through the SS death information. Her location is a mystery, at this point. But I will keep at it. I did find her brother through Billion Graves, maybe she will be on that as well.
Thank you for your concern.
|Nancy E. (Nancy Jean) Graves||Allegra Wanitta Scoby|
Thank you for the reminder for the Birth and Death information on the section designated for that info. My concern is that I do not know if I have her located in the correct cemetery. Since there was no indication except her SS death notification, and no access to an obituary, at this point in time, I do not know where her grave site is located. The Death Certificate's are expensive. If she had passed away in my County, I could go to my local health department for a look-see and find her location. Otherwise, at this point in time, locating her was a shot in the dark, Cemetery wise. I may just have to delete it. The SS indicator was for Sacramento, Sacramento, California, with no further information. If I find out the correct location, I can relocate this memorial. Thank you for your kind assist.

Sorry it took so long for me to respond! Are you still in the Sacramento area? I didn't get to experience WOODY'S EXXON as long as I would have liked. :D But I still here stories about it today from many of the guys that used to hang out there. It sounds like it was "the" place to be in the 70's if you liked cars and guys!! I came in around 1978 and they closed in late 1980 I believe.

|Spencer Jones||RE: Betty Jo Barnhart|
Thank you for the transfer. I agree with your reasoning - I feel the same way :)
|Pennsylvania Lady||Robert Joseph Levine|
Thanks for helping me with my error.
Thank you for bringing that to my attention. It's probably the most important part of a memorial and I'm glad you let me know!

Thank you for bringing the duplicate record and misspelling to my attention. I have deleted the duplicate. Have a great week.
