Bio and Links
Bio Photo "We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

Thank you so much!
Dear Linda,

The wonderful photo you took of Jozef Varga's (his son changed his name to Wargo about the time of his father's death) tombstone is indeed the marker for my great grandfather. His wife was Maria Kocis.

I so appreciate your time and effort.

Very best wishes,

Tish Como

Thanks for the great Patuzzi volunteer photos, I'm grateful! I have 3 other Patuzzi photo requests at this cemetery, if you feel spunky. Rich.

Thanks so much for the Ferris headstone photo and the information on the other Ferris'. I added them to this cemetery and requested a headstone photo, which you already have.

Dear Linda,
Thank you very much for talking the photos of three Canfield women in the New Canaan cemetery. I live so far away from my area of research. Your willingness to be a volunteer means so much to me and very much appreciated.

Restland Memorial Park Photo Requests
I would very much like to fulfill your photo request for Stephen Arandes and Helen Arandes.

I will be travelling to Restland Memorial Park next week, and it would be helpful if you could call the office at the following number 412-823-4888 and ask them to look up the Grave Location and then send me a direct email. As I walk the cemetery, I will attempt to locate the marker
and upload the picture, as well as give the GPS Location.
