Attention: Visitors to Find A Grave Memorials

* Thank you for additional information and corrections to memorials I create and maintain. Thank you for your time and interest!

** Just so you know ... Content for memorials I create and maintain has multiple sources, some including family genealogists and stories/bibles/photo albums/scrapbooks, personal knowledge, FaG site contributors, cemetery walking, online research, transcribed records, and the kind folks who write me with additional information and corrections. Please note content cannot be guaranteed and you are encouraged to check your own sources.

Lives are commemorated,
deaths are recorded,
families are reunited,
memories are made tangible,
and love is undisguised.
This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect,
families bestow reverence,
historians seek information
and our heritage is thereby

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life, not the death, of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering, always.
