Bio Photo LAST ON LINE: 14 Aug 2017

Retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer with over 29 years of service. I am also the wife of a retired US Army soldier and the mother of a soldier who was injured in Iraq from an IED. SUPPORT THE TROOPS!!!! Please Honor all our military without complaining on memorials!

My memorials are lopsided as I manage a deceased cousin's contributions to Findagrave.

If Findagrave doesn't approve of comments in our profiles, they DO access our profiles and delete comments and some of our flowers in our scrapbooks.

TRANSFERS: I follow Findagrave's guidelines of the 4-generation rule for transfers; aunts/uncles/cousins are NOT included in the transfer rule. Consider creating a virtual cemetery to keep your relatives together. If the individual in the 4-generation rule transfer request is a closer relative to me, then I will maintain the memorial.

DEATH CERTIFICATES are welcomed on my memorials as they are in the public domain and, although at times there are errors, they can provide a wealth of information. I add them so individual's who cannot afford have access to their relative(s) documents. It's my way of paying back. And now Findagrave is owned by

SUGGESTIONS: For those making suggestions, please research and provide the researched information for me to update. Additionally; 1: If someone has a duplicate memorial, courtesy is to ask that individual to delete it FIRST before asking Findagrave to get involved.

HEADSTONE PHOTO VOLUNTEERS-If you volunteer and post headstone photos, please take a photo of the COMPLETE marker. I find more and more that some individuals crop the bottom of the markers off - especially on military grave sites, which does an injustice to our veterans. You took the time to take the photo, then PLEASE take the time to crop & post the headstone photo correctly.

Working together is a whole lot better than working by yourself:)

SSDI-Regarding the "Last Residence" in the SSDI: This is the last address of record, not necessarily where the individual died. Please do not ask me to list it as the place of death on memorial pages - to do so would only be a guess.

I work hard on Findagrave and have sponsored quite a few memorials. Please be a contributor and not just a person who adds names. It's great to see the people who do provide research.

SPAM: Recently SPAM has been coming into my email and it's that 'robo' email wanting to give us money. Appparently our Findgrave accounts have been hacked. SUGGEST changing password!

Thanks Sherlock
Thanks for the photo of Clarence Morris' headstone, although it turns out this is not the individual I thought he was. You do take great photos and I wish all photo contributors took such good quality and framed photos as you do.

You're the best...

Henry Shankle/Memorial Park Cem.
Hello. My husband and myself were at Memorial Park Cemetery this morning doing photo requests. We were unable to locate Mr. Shankle's grave, so asked the nice grounds crew in the area to help out. They were able to find Mr. Shankle's grave - but, unfortunately, there was no grave marker there. They put a white flag up at his grave, which is what we photographed. His grave is in very close proximity to the graves of Claude A. and Ida Shankles.

RE: Lawrence Dale Wheatley
I also have the correct photo for William E, which as you suspected, is not the one shown presently. As I don't know the original memorial owner, I am reluctant to post a new photo, what to do?

thanks for correction of name Lawrence.
