Bio and Links
Bio Photo 9/13/2011 Well it is a sad day at my house. My cemetery buddy is now herding cows in Heaven. She passed away in my arms with my voice being the last she heard. She was my best friend, my grave marker and the best cemetery hopping buddy that any one could have. She will be missed. (tear)
Rest In Peace, Sweetie!

My Daddy dug graves for the City of West Plains, Missouri for many years and he has passed his love of cemeteries on to me. I just love to walk cemeteries, and Sweetie goes with me!
If you see any info that is not correct, or you would like changed, please let me know. I try to get things right, but sometimes I mess up!

Thank you for all your hard work. We are descendants of Edson and would like to know the source for your obituary. We had heard parts of the story but could not verify it. I am a member of Find A Grave in Central Illinois and work to keep the Farmington Cemetery database up-to-date.
When you have time, please let me know.

RE: Your dad
I am not sure how to request a transfer...? I would like to manage my mom and dad's grave site (Al and Donna Dean). Could you provide me with more info on how to do it? Thank you SO much for you time.

AL Dean's grave site
My name is Shannon (Dean) Gaydash. AL Dean is my father. Please, Please change his name back to AL. His name was NOT Alonzo. If I had to guess, I would bet you heard that name from my Aunt Frances Dean who worked tirelessly as a volunteer for the cemetery. This is, however, inaccurate. I have birth certificate and military records and, of course, this is my father. I am a member of Find A Grave and would happily take over both my father and mother's(Donna Whiteside Dean) site. Thank you in advance.
