Bio and Links
Bio Photo Not much to say, but I do enjoy helping people, and I know how important it is to the heart, to see the final resting place of an ancestor, and to envision the other family members being there, the day of burial.. I am also a professional radiographer/technologist, so that helps my passion for photography. And my photos are not touched-up so to speak, and never with borders. (borders meaning only the headstone and its borders are showing) .I try to keep the nature in the grave photo.. A fallen leaf, a sprig of grass, a pinecone. I just sweep away the dirt so that you can see the names, but other than that, I try to assure you a connection, when you view the photo, as if you were right there with me the day that I took the photo..
I have now extended my findagrave search to 30 miles or more so that I can offer my services beyond just locally.. I not only like to drive, but I like to discover new Memorial Parks and I take my searching very seriously.. Starting early in the morning, just as the day is beginning, gives me a "sense of well being" and a clear state of mind for the challenges ahead of my searching.
I have now started to take a 2nd photo of the surrounding area because I feel that the headstone is just kind of lonely without showing where exactly your loved ones truly rest.
Permission is given to copy and use the photo for your own purposes. No reason to ask.

Thank you very much for taking the photos of the gravestones for my great-great aunt Nora and her daughters at Holy Cross Cemetery. I had posted their memorials some years after I'd been to the cemetery. I cleaned up their gravestones and took photos, but hadn't gotten around to scanning them, etc., to post.

Delete photo
Hello, Judy,

Please delete your photograph of the crypt on Find-A-Grave Memorial # 163380513. We already have this online and don't need the duplication. THANK YOU SO MUCH. God bless you.

It looks to me like the shadow of the tree.

But maybe it was uncle Hazel came to say thank you.

I really appreciate what you did.

Hi Judy

Leigh Anne did send a photo but it is soo bad.
The man just took half the marker and the person that took the photo is in shadow all lover it and his hand is in it.

So please go out and take a nice picture of the whole marker for me. It does have the date of death on it now So that is good to know.
It can't be attaché to the grave.

thank you

You are an angel

RE: H L Smith
Hi Judy

Friday will be great . I emailed Leigh-Anne yesterday that you would be coming out next week. She said she would have her grounds man take a picture and send me. I have been dealing with her sent November. About a month ago she said she would send a picture. I will email you when I get the picture or let you know Thursday that she has not sent a picture. If this is ok with you. I do appreciate your help.

Thank you
