I believe one of the worst things that can happen to anyone is to die and not be remembered for contributions made and sacrificial service rendered to enrich the lives of others.
Being a contributor to Find A Grave enables me to PROPerly Salute those who've directly and indirectly touched my life, and the lives of others. Also, it helps my family (and hopefully other families) easily obtain genealogical data on departed kin.
My goal is to create "quality" memorials that speaks to & honors the lives of persons who've passed on. My idea of quality is a memorial that, if possible, has at least one picture of the departed person & has a bio that says something about who the person was, & the contributions he/she made in the lives of others...
