I just like cemeteries and leaving flowers. Thanks are not necessary. If you would like me to remove my token from your relative's memorial, you have only to ask. If you're in my friends list, you probably have a virtual cemetery I want to wander. I came here to find Rhonda Lou Jones, buried in Britt IA. She is one of the memorials in my virtual cemetery "missed." The first person entered in "missed" was Mary Helen Swope, whom I was dismayed to find here. Tiny cemetery with fewer than 100 people? I'm there! Cemetery in an odd place (traffic circle, parking lot, median strip)? Love it! Abandoned/neglected cemetery with headstones centuries out of date? Cool! Cemetery I would most like to participate in clean-up and restoration: Old Trinity Cemetery, in the awesomely-named Bone Gap, Edwards County, IL. I visit it on They wrote an article about it: "Nature Reclaims an Abandoned and Forgotten Cemetery," in 2010. Cemetery I most want to see in person: Saint Francis Assisi Cemetery in Brainerd, MN. It's located in Crow Wing State Park--how cool is that? I learned of its existence via Amy C. Rea's blog entry for May 9, 2012. Most disturbing cemetery pictures: with CemeteryTraveler's article "The Watery Remains of Monument Cemetery." Cemetery I want to see before it disappears completely: Orphans' Home Cemetery in Atchison, Kansas. How I want my remains disposed of: Take my ashes and those of my beloved pet, put us in a Bios Urn, and plant us on the site of my childhood home. Add violet & viola seeds. Put up a field stone (we have enough of them around), engraving optional. Let the Bios Urn tree, as it grows, engulf the stone. Carving tree trunk optional. Never dig me up again.

RE: Minnowman
Ok so, Mark's "memorial number" is #101502841

I checked out the "profile number" #46627509 (Minnow Man) and when you search #46627509 as a "memorial number" it does come up as someone else.

Sorry for the confusion. I did also send a note to the person who created Mark's memorial, through an edit request, and asked her if she could link his profile page to his memorial. I have not received a reply yet.

Thank you for all your efforts.

I read your post on Minnow Man's profile. I was wondering if you knew how to link Minnow Man's profile page to his memorial page. I sponsored his memorial earlier this year. Yesterday was his third Angel Day. Any help would be appreciated. I have been a member here for a little over nine years, but I am not very good at the technical aspects of this site. Thanks
