|Bio and Links|
In late August of 2015, I had a stroke, and more recently issues have been found with my heart, it's looking like most of the health issues are behind me though and I will soon be back out, just in time for the Florida summer. Winter of course is the prime time here for getting out to photograph, the summers are so hot and the shadows so harsh, and the grass grows to fast for the ground crews to do much other than cut it, and leave it piled on the headstone. |
We discovered Find a Grave while doing research on our family trees. From there has grown an interest in recording cemeteries for others to use. We are willing to transfer the memorials of people who are not related to us, to anyone who has a connection with the person, whether within guidelines or not. Don't hesitate to ask.
Feel free to use any of our monument photos any way that you want to, as few (if any) of them have any artistic and/or commercial value which might be covered by the intent of the Copyright clause in the Constitution. (Please note, however, that this only applies to photos with our name under them. For any others, you will need to contact the person who added them for their permission to copy and use elsewhere.). The above was borrowed with a few edits, from RobMinteer57 (#47389024)
Our family tree includes the following surnames, Read, Clark, Nelson, Fletcher, Forshee, Shirley, Diederich, and Bohl.
We live in Palm Beach county, Florida. Currently we are focused on Pinecrest cemetery in Lake Worth. If you would like a different photo on a memorial we created in Pinecrest, let us know. Less time is spent on photos taken while mowing the rows to document the cemetery, than is spent on photos to fulfill specific requests. We can go back and do a request quality photo for a memorial you are interested in if you would like.
"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness, the tender mercies of its people, their loyalty to high ideals, and their regard for the laws of the land."- Eighteenth-century British statesman William Gladstone

She was transferred to me the other day :)
|Neil Loftiss||RE: Hi|
Thanks for the note, and the information. It is interesting that John & Etta were buried so far apart. Likely a matter of cash availability?
|Becky Ramsey||Findagrave Photographs|
Dan & Karen, thank you for all your contributions to the Findagrave website and for permission to use your photographs in our Family Tree files. Becky
|Melissa D. Cobb||RE: Thanks|
You are welcome and I appreciate your message! I am sorry to read that health issues are slowing you down. That can be very difficult to deal with, especially when it hinders us from doing things we enjoy. I am happy to help anytime though. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thank you so much for the transfer. Perhaps you found her obituary? The beautiful portrait you put up was on her legacy page. But no matter where you found her, I'm grateful that you did, because it's such a lovely memorial. Thank you again and take care!
|Colleen Wittick||Transfer Request|
Greetings... A while back you were kind enough to transfer my grandparents' grave to me (Mary and Alonzo Wittick). I was wondering if you would also consider transferring the following Pinecrest Cemetery graves to me?
John Abraham # 121544725 (my great grandfather)
Thomas Abraham # 143094602 (Johnís Son)
Josephine Abraham # 143291386 (Thomasí wife)
Looking forward to your reply.

Hello! My name is Heaven-leigh. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to transfer Joyce Lamb to me? She's my great-aunt, I'm her sister, Joan's, granddaughter. I just recently discovered Findagrave and would really appreciate looking after her memorial. Thank you for your time and consideration.
