|Bio and Links|
As my Findagrave Profile name suggests, I am one of the many people to be diagnosed with Autism (Aspergers, to be specific). As one diagnosed with this syndrome, one of my characteristics is that I focus my attention around specific subjects. Most people with Autism or Aspergers may focus thier attention on dogs or subway routes. During my early high school years, I was fixated with graves after I stumbled across Findagrave. I would usually travel to cemeteries within my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania's Main Line), or whenever I was on vacation. Eventually, I felt that my fixation with cemeteries became morbid, so I slowly shifted my attention onto another subject: the US Presidents. To this day, I can still recite (1) the names of the Presidents of the United States in chronological order from George Washington to Barrack Obama, (2) the years they served in office, and (3) thier Vice Presidents. I also have an odd interest in visting State Capitol Buildings. Every once in a while, however, I would enjoy roaming around a cemetery (mainly if a President was buried in the cemetery). In October 2008, I decided to create my own Findagrave account, so here I am =)|
DISCLAIMER: As of January 1, 2013, I'm taking a year off (& possibly a little longer) to spend some time away from FAG so I can focus more on my own personal life. I'll be back sometime in (or after) 2014, but right now I just need to focus on my own personal life -- meaning, until then, I do not wish to get any personal e-mails asking to fulfill FAG requests.

Thank you for taking the time to take the Panichelli-Harter photos at Sts. Peter & Paul Cemetery in Springfield. Very much appreciated, esp. with the present weather. Have a good weekend!

Thank you so much for the picture of Joseph and Anna McCorkle's tombstone. I truly appreciate you taking the time to do that, and now can add the image to my family tree. I believe I have their birth and death dates, and will do an edit on the memorials when I get on my computer tomorrow.

Thanks very much for the photo of E Berkeley Tompkins' gravestone. I see you braved the cold and snow to get this shot. I wasn't expecting anything to show up on that request until spring --- if ever!
At my job, my assistant has Asperger's, so I'm very familiar with the challenges you face every day. She has done well... she has a Master's degree in History, and is working toward another in Mass Communication. She is even publishing a book, and it has gotten good reviews.
I wish you success in whatever you choose to do. Keep at it and you'll go far. And don't let any fools tell you "it can't be done." They're wrong. Accept constructive criticism gracefully, since we all get hit with that; but ignore mean-spirited people who do nothing but try to sap your self-confidence.

Thank you so much for your attempt to photograph my friend's graves for me. I have contacted the cemetery to try to learn the location of their plots and will post same when I hear back.

Thank you so much for the photo. Such a great service you and others like you do.
Hello, I appreciate your effort in taking the photo, but it's entirely unreadable. Can't make out a single letter. Maybe taking it on a better weather day with better light. Thanks for volunteering.
