Connie,
I was moved by your warm message regarding your sons' memorial. Not long ago when I stumbled upon this site, I began entering my own family members but then learned that while photographing my mothers' headstone, that maybe the surrounding stones should be entered as well. Since then I have even drug my grandchildren on "Cemetery Days" where they help me photograph headstones of unrelated persons.
So many of the older stones are so hard to read that I found a need in me to capture stones in photos and enter them here before the original stone no longer exists.
I also feel that once a person passes from this life to the next they tend to be forgotten once their spouses, siblings, children, or parents are gone and find it sad that although they may have a stone, this does not help future family members know them or who they were. I felt the need to give these stones some kind of voice, something that would help any person wishing to know more, no matter how far away they might be, find it possible to learn all they could, even if all I could enter was a mere photo and name. If you would like to maintain your sons' memorial, I would be proud to transfer his memorial to you. I thank you for your words of thoughtfulness, I as many other contributors to this site take messages such as yours to heart and find comfort and great pride in pleasing those such as yourself. Once again, if you would like to manage your sons' memorial, please let me know and I will make the transfer as soon as possible. However I will also understand if you prefer to simply visit it. If you have any suggestions or changes you would like to be made please let me know, I will be happy to make them as soon as possible. Please remember to include your sons' memorial # 54533826 to make finding his memorial and making changes faster.
Thank you again,
Tammy
