Bio

I realize some people think they're helping people by providing death certificates for everyone they can by posting the document on memorials as a photo, but my personal opinion is that it's in poor taste and completely unnecessary. Ancestry.com and Familysearch.org would be much more appropriate for that type of record. The point is, the records are available to those searching, and a memorial is to tell something of the individual represented. When biographies are more full of "data provided by member #____________," it sadly becomes more about who contributed than the person represented. That's my two cents worth... and some of the many reasons I don't maintain memorials.

Unable to locate memorials for the following victims of the Big Thompson Flood of July 31, 1976:
Barbara Dawn Leyden, age 29, McLean, VA
Priscilla Pasibe Manongdo, age 28, Quezon City, Philippines
Clarence B. Waters (8/19/1912 - 7/31/1976) Riveria, AZ
Mary Sue Waters (4/8/1914 - 7/31/1976) Riveria, AZ
