Grief never ends|
but it changes.
It is a passage
not a place to stay.
It is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith.
It is the price of love. ~ Anonymous
I live in Texas but was raised in Southern Illinois.
If I've taken a picture of your family members headstone, I am the copyright holder. If it's a photo that I own, please feel free to use it in your own personal family tree such as Ancestry.com.
I won't link memorials to "Burial Unknown" memorials. Find A Grave's primary purpose is a grave registration site. If you don't know where the grave is, IT DOES NOT BELONG ON FIND A GRAVE.
I won't add copy and paste online census or other indices information to memorials. You can re-write the information and reference these sources and I will gladly add it to a memorial. See examples below of what I'll accept.
This is an example of re-written use of census information added to a memorial Nancy Jane Clark

I'm experimenting using a 1000 lumen flashlight while taking photos of old weathered stones and those always hard to read, gray and white marble, and it's been a big help. Here's an example George Wesley Weatherford

Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought.
To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears.
To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool.
To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen.
To be led by a liar is to ask to be told lies.
To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery.
Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Talents (Earthseed, #2)
