"Wally" Our dear doggie...
Lew Browder (aka zadalew) One of Find a Grave's finest! Go on over to his page and leave a tribute.

To change information click on the "EDIT" tab at the top right of the memorial. If I reject an edit, please contact me should you need to know the reason (usually it's a date typo that doesn't make sense, or a duplicate request). No "proof" necessary - most people do their homework, and I'm good with that.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANY PHOTOS YOU DID NOT TAKE or add photographs of obituaries.

DUPLICATES happen. Let me know in the "other comments" section of the "Suggest a Correction" section and include the number of the original memorial in the event that it is one that has been transferred to me. FAG has to delete transferred memorials that are duplicates, and needs that original number.

Please be as specific as you can in stating relationships. My decision, on a case-by-case basis. I DO transfer out of FAG Guideline. Most people request memorials for the right reasons: they know and care about the person they're requesting. I generally transfer those who are not my family or close friends. Too many do NOT have someone with a personal connection.

OBITUARY: please credit the source, name of paper or mortuary, and date. I omit survivors' names (if it is a recent obit - within the last few years)outside of spouse, partner, or parent if I don't have express permission to include them.

MY PHOTOS - OK to use. I would like to know if family photos are being used so I can be sure they're going the right place. I've found a few that have been incorrectly assigned.

I photograph and update cemeteries in Pottawatomie and Riley Counties, Kansas, when I'm not employed as a full-time substitute teacher. I am a member of the Riley County Genealogical Society.

My grave interests come from parents who love history and writing, and frequently told us stories about past (passed) people in our lives. As a preacher's kid I played in cemeteries a lot growing up, and I guess I haven't stopped.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photo for Orlando's memorial page. Any chance his wife, Virginia, is buried near by? Thank you again!

Charles Schade (Sunset Cemetery)
You might wish to add Charles to the Schade's plot in Sunset. It would be 7-A-384-6. He's listed but there is no other data available - much like Arthur Schade and James Messing.
