RE: Leo Michael Carter
Hello again Jeannie,
Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate them. I have spent a lot of time in the past couple of years walking up and down rows at the cemeteries with my broom and camera sweeping markers off and pulling some grass and taking photos. Jacksonville has a lot of people who have moved to other cities and some have never seen their relative's grave marker and Find a Grave helps them visit online. I love Find a Grave. You can leave virtual flowers and notes. Volunteers in other cities have helped me with photos of family graves in other states. As I have added memorials and I get feedback from relatives who had no idea where their relatives were buried and I read the notes they send me it gets me wanting to add more. I have around 87,000 photos of grave markers in Evergreen. It will take years for me to upload them all. It is a work in progress. I hope you enjoy Find a Grave as much as I have. God bless.

Johnny

RE: Leo Michael Carter
Hello Jeannie,
I have been a Find a Grave volunteer contributor for a little over two years now. I had a similiar situation happen with my parents as you have had with your brother. I Googled their names and found their names listed on Find a Grave. There was a Marker photo on one and not on the other and I went out to the cemetery (Arlington Park) and photographed their grave marker. I came home and joined Find a Grave and uploaded the photo. I thought it was a really good idea. It was free and it was a lasting memorial that present and future generations should find of value in their genealogical research. While I was at Arlington Park photographing my parents marker I took a photo of a few of the surrounding markers. Some had a memorial and some didn't. I created one for the ones without and added marker photos to any that needed them.

I didn't know your brother and no one requested the photo. I have taken many thousands of photos at Evergreen Cemetery and several others. If the memorial for your brother in any way offends you or your family I will be glad to delete it from Find a Grave. I certainly in no way mean for the memorials and photos to be offensive. If you like the memorial and would like to contribute items to the memorial I would be proud to transfer your brother's memorial to your management. You can add stories or obituaries and add links to other memorials in Find a Grave for Mother, Father or Spouse. You can add up to five photos to the free memorials. Find a Grave is all Volunteers who take photos and create memorials for free. No one gets paid. Find a Grave has a program for sponsoring a memorial. It is a one time fee of $5 paid to Find a Grave and it takes away the banner advertising and gives the contributor the ability to upload up to 20 photos to the memorial. I sponsored by parents and some others and have like a photo album with 20 photos.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Johnny
