George, it has been brought to my attention that the photos you claimed to have taken for me are indeed not yours. Per JoLynn, you stole her photos and posted them as your credit. I know we all make mistakes, but you need to be honest with yourself and other members. This is our family genealogy, we all do this because of our love for our ancestors. Please correct your wrong doings!

There is a sense of peace when I walk a cemetery. I try to make sure just because some one is gone does not mean they are forgotten.
I talk with many family members to learn about the story behind the person that is behind the stone. We work so hard in life and in
the end we just have a stone left if we are even able to afford one. I take photos of rocks, wooden crosses, sunken graves were coffins lay.
It saddens me that I won't know who they are. But there is some times if I am lucky that one person that remembers that they buried grandpa
under the tree here or they buried grandma over by the gate there. I may just one day find all of those unknown graves.
I have done 55 cemeteries in Choctaw County while I was pregnant with all five of my kids "two sets of twins", with my mom who had a heart condition
at the time and she sat in the car watching me take photos while she so wanted to join me.
She used to always take me to cemeteries while I was a little girl before a soft ball game. I am so Blessed for February marks 2 years of her heart transplant.
You have no idea what meaning and impacted these moments mean to me. I don't just take a photo of the headstone, I get to know the person as well through
reading family information or having family tell me about them. Do you do that? Meet the person behind the stone. You may just learn some thing.
You were not taking away my photos in my eyes, it was more of you taking away the wonderful moments I had with my family in those cemeteries.
My kids picking wild flowers for the ones who had no flowers. My mom using what strength she had at the time to just read a stone with a lamb on it to see how long the baby lived.

Have a Blessed Day.................

Shame on you
Please delete the picture of Shirley Mantooth's headstone. I have been informed that it was not yours.

Stolen photo
I don't like getting corrections stating that you have posted a copyrighted photo on one of my memorials. Please do me a favor, and don't add any more photos to my memorials. I do the time and actually take my own photos for people, you should try it, it is very rewarding to your soul.
