It is appointed unto man once to die, " saith the Apostle; yet, when in the daily intercourse of life one whom we have long known and cherished is suddenly stricken down by the hand of death, we more forcibly realize the truth of the Scriptures that "We bring our years to an end as it were, a tale that is told;" that "Dust shall return to the earth as it was, and the spirit unto God who gave it."
My primary goal is to honor many of the U.S. veterans who have been overlooked in Findagrave, or if listed without veteran recognition, denote their service on their memorial page.
Many of the memorials listed in Findagrave do not truly define the location of actual human remains. Instead they are accounts of tombstone images, death/burial records, cenotaphs and many are assumptions. All subject to error. Nevertheless, it is important that they memorialize a human person who lived and died, regardless of the actual disposition of their remains
Please be aware that the accuracy of each memorial is subject to error not only by the manager but through unverified edit requests, mixed information through merged memorials, auto edits when the manager does not or cannot respond, and blind changes from the administration requested from other contributors.
Please don't feel obligated to complete a middle initial with imagination. Without proper documentation, I will not accept.
I reserve the privilege to decline any edit suggestion based on assumptions. Withhold all suggestions for field entries which you have no documentation. If reasonable, I will post your suggestion in the bio section with your member number .
I chose not to add a combo/dash surname as it inhibits that person from a general search function. Generally, I prefer to use the name from the tombstone or S.S. record if available.
My thanks and devotion to you who are courteous, polite and appreciative. Those who are rude, demanding and condescending, don't call me, I'll call you.
