Updated December, 2020: Yahoo! can have technical issues with Windows 10, so I sometimes have to use different devices to access my email account. The message at the bottom may say, sent from a device, or be blank. I use a desktop computer, and also access my email directly from the web, however, sometimes my Kindle Fire shows my mother's name, as the Kindle is registered in her name, if I'm not accessing my email directly from the web, and from another app on my Kindle. I do not own a credit card. I use an abbreviation of my name, as an homage to author A. A. Milne, and for greater privacy on my public Find A Grave page, but usually give my real first name in emails, unless I just plain forget to. Please be kind. If I contact you, please know that I am acting with the best of intentions for the site and fellow contributors. I always try to be as respectful to the opinions and feelings of others as possible. I quite enjoy most of the recently added features, and would like to stay on the site as long as everyone wants me here. If I have made an error, I will correct it. Flowers and Notes are always welcome and it makes my day when I find a new one. Please ask before posting my family pictures on other websites. I don't mind, but if you do indeed copy them, I would appreciate a credit under my Find A Grave or real name. If you ask, I might have something you would like better to show you. Gravestone pictures may be used wherever you wish, but I would appreciate my Find A Grave or real name being mentioned, if someone else needs a clearer copy. I store most of the originals in my computer. I am always looking for new friends and relatives. Any additional information is always appreciated. Photos are greatly welcomed. Thank You. If I can be of service in regards to any of the people I have listed, please do not hesitate to contact me. Often, I do not list exact causes of death, as they are too unfortunate and/or disturbing to list. For this reason, I would prefer death certificates not be posted on memorials I create and/or manage. It seems disrespectful, and the information on a death certificate is often inaccurate when it comes to birth dates, etc. In most cases, I choose to list nothing at all, as I wish to be truthful, yet sympathetic to those still living. In addition, it is not of vital importance, except to those interested, and/or family members. In certain situations, I do not know what the exact cause of death was. In regards to biographies, every family has its secrets, most of which will not be mentioned. Most records where I have a listing of the person's children, if the children are step or adopted, I will not specify them as such, so as not to offend anyone. I am an Iowan, with roots in Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, England, Ireland, Norway, and Germany. I also have cousins, both living and deceased, in Washington state, Oklahoma, Nebraska, California, Colorado, Oregon, Ohio, Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. I have a few family connections to other countries. My current and future listings consist mainly of family, close friends, and some friends of friends. Sometimes it is an infant or small child found in the newspaper or a local funeral home online. If anyone wants to know more about me, carefully view my many listings. I could be called a historian in general. If they are not of personal value to me, I will gladly transfer any of my listings to family or friends of the deceased. Cemeteries and the like have fascinated me since I was a mere 7 years old. Please refrain from posting scanned obituaries on the memorials that I originally created and/or manage. If I should get messages asking me to remove something, I cannot personally remove anything I did not post. I would prefer that online photographs that accompanied the obituaries not be posted for the same reason. Many people do not want their names listed in an obituary, so unless I know the family doesn't care, I no longer post obituaries in full. If it is my family, I may not want pictures of the deceased posted here, depending on my relationship to the person, and someone else viewing the memorial page may feel the same way about seeing their close family members photograph on the website, when it was only intended for funeral home use. I have been seeing postmortem images accompanying obituaries more and more of late. I would prefer to be notified if you want to post pictures from the funeral home websites. I occasionally find people that are unaware of the site, and I always try to respect the wishes of the surviving family. I am unable to do photo requests at this time, unless I find a cemetery that I plan on going to shortly, as I do not always have the capabilities to fulfill them. I Do Not Do Transfers unless you have a closer relationship to them than me. Relatives by marriage may be an exception. You may be considered if you were a friend of the deceased. I dislike arguments, and don't discuss politics. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.-Matthew 5:8.
