Having met in college in the mid-1970s, we went our separate ways and lost touch. In 2009, we reconnected via facebook. Gary's wife had passed away and Ferebe was happily single at 56. |
On December 11, 2010, we were united in marriage and in name as a friend of ours coined us "GAREBE," GAR for Gary and EBE for Ferebe. Needless to say, it stuck.
We are enjoying life's journey together through, among other things, photography. Becoming more interested in the genealogy of both of our families, we were introduced to Find A Grave and now enjoy helping others discover the memorials they seek that are in our area.

Thank you for finding my step mom's brother's grave. He died in WWII, she has not ever seen his grave marker and was thankful when I sent her the photo.

That's no problem at all. I appreciate your efforts. I started with Find a Grave a little over a year ago at a cemetery where my Mother and Father are buried. I saw there was around 50 photo requests and I thought I would lend a hand and fulfill some of the requests. I also own a lot for myself in the same cemetery. Well the office was far from helpful. They would give me one or two and then grumble about they had things to do. I was sort of kiddin around and told them, well, maybe I will,just photograph the entire cemetery and I won't have to ask anymore. We both had a laugh at that one. Well the more I thought about it and about 12,800 photos later I never went back to the office for locations. I started loading and would notice from time to time that I had fulfilled a photo request. It took several months but finally the cemetery is 99% complete. There are unmarked graves and listing for some that are not even in the cemetery.
6 months or so ago I remember a contributor from your area talking about a book for the cemetery that had listings and locations. That would be nice to have. I have asked here in Jacksonville and the cemeteries tell me they don't have anything like that.
It has been a very enjoyable experience creating memorials and uploading photos. It can become a little addicting, but it is a good addiction. Thank you again and God bless.
