RE: My heartfelt thanks
Thank you so much Dana for your kind words! That's why I do it! Because I know how exciting it is to get loved ones grave photos unexpectedly in your inbox, especially if you've never seen them before! I've been photographing for findagrave for a few years now and noticed that grave requests were piling up at this cemetery, 177, and some people have been waiting a year for photos so I made it my goal to fulfill them all by the end of the year! I hope you weren't waiting long! Thanks again for your message! I appreciate it!

Hi again, from D.Simon
I also noticed you've left a photo request regarding Bernard Batashoff who is buried in Queens, at least I think that is you, if I understand how the computer works. And you indicate that Bernard was your uncle and his wife Elaine your niece.

I know that Anna Batashoff was married to Sam Simonowsky, and my mother, who is still alive, remembers Anna going by the Hebrew name Nechama. She lived until at least 1949 as I have a picture of her visiting on my grandfather's porch in Rockaway in that year.

Fannie, as you know, lived to 103. Her brother, Ben Simonowsky, died in Santa Cruz, California in 1992, but he has a surviving daughter, who is married with a kid of he own, so the line continues. Ben changed his name to Simms after WWII. My father was in touch with both Ben and Fannie, although moreso Fannie, until his death in 2010.

My guess is you are connected to the Batashoffs in some way, as I am a Simonowsky. Fannie was a substantive woman, not at all foolish and very good hearted. I am sorry I didn't get up to NY to see her before she passed.

Hi, from D. Simon
I noticed you left a kind message on the entry for Fannie Simonowsky Black. Fannie was my second cousin. My father was Bernard Simon, from Max Simon, who was a brother to Fannie's father, Sam Simonwsky. Did you know Fannie?

If so, my email is

Thank you
Hi, please tell me whose memorial you are referring to below.
Thanks, Jean

Jean, my apologies. The message beneath this was not for "Anna", but for YOU! :-)

Anna, I thank you for making available the final resting spot of a very special man, [and his beloved parents, who rest alongside him]. Don was the owner of one of the most magnificent little shops in NYC back in the early 1980's, FLIGHTS OF FANCY. The passion, love and creativity he brought not only to his shop, but to each customer [especially my husband and myself] are still a treasured memory, long after his passing in 1994. I have thought of Don often over the years, and am grateful to you for placing online this "memorial".
G-d bless you for honoring those who have passed on, who hold a special place in the hearts of us who are still here on earth.

You are more than welcome. What a sweet message! I have recently photographed the entire Ryan cemetery so if you need any more photos I would be happy to upload them.
