Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Mortician. I live and work in Syracuse,NY. I am originally from Toledo,Ohio. I moved to Syracuse in 1975 as a result of a job transfer. I first became interested in Find-A-Grave last year by accident. I wanted to locate Babe Ruth's grave site. My inquiry lead me to the Find-A-Grave Website. I really became hooked because I found it so unique. However, I did not become an active member until sometime later. I find that I really enjoy creating memorials and going to the various cemeteries to take photos upon request for other Find-A-Grave members. I feel this to be very rewarding. I feel that what we do here shows a great deal of respect for our dearly departed friends and loved ones. Rest assured, I'll do all I can to fulfill your request. I will be glad to travel any reasonable distance within Onondaga County, NY to fulfill your request.

Glad to be of service.

Thank You

Bill Kest

Lewis Amidon stone

RE: memorial #43185586
I think this photo belongs to Lewis' wife Emily (Amidon)Amidon. The top part is obscured, but the first visible writing says "wife of ...." and the date is that of Emily's death. The same stone, cleaned up, appears on Emily's site.
