Find A Grave rules on transfers:
"Need more help? If the memorial in question is a direct relative within the four generations to you and the memorial manager is not direct family, then they must transfer the memorial. If they refuse to transfer the memorial or do not respond within a reasonable amount of time, contact [email protected] and we will work on it for you." I'm happy to transfer memorials to any relative.

It is my personal belief that any information posted on the net becomes Public Domain. Please feel free to use any and all of my information in any way you want to.

If you find it necessary to contact me regarding one of the memorials that I manage, please use the "edit" button and provide your comments in the edit "window". I must add a request, for as much documentation as you can provide, for updating the memorials that you submit an update to. I hope this is not too much to ask. With so much incorrect information out there I rather not add to the problem.

Except for my family, please feel free to ask for transfers if you are related to that person whose memorial you want, otherwise I suggest following FAG regulations. However, at my discretion, I will make exception to these rules. Also, if you sponsor the memorial page I'll transfer the memorial to you. Just so you know, I accept memorials managed by FAG until a relative asks for a transfer. As contributors, I feel that we can offer more personal care of the memorials we manage than a corporate structure.
Also, if I find flowers or information left by family members when I'm reviewing the memorials that I manage, I will sometimes transfer management of the memorial to that family member.

Please feel free to post information on the memorials that I manage. I only ask that you do not post pictures that you yourself have not taken or do not belong to your family.

Also, just if you didn't know:
"This memorial is currently managed by Find a Grave. We'd be happy to transfer management to you.
As a memorial manager you will be expected to:
1) Respond respectfully to 'edit requests' and other contacts regarding this memorial.
2) Transfer the memorial to any relative if they request it.
Learn more about managing memorials."

TX Laws § 711.041. Access to Cemetery (a) Any person who wishes to visit a cemetery or private burial grounds for which no public ingress or egress is available shall have the right to reasonable ingress and egress for the purpose of visiting the cemetery or private burial grounds. This right of access extends only to visitation during reasonable hours and only for purposes usually associated with cemetery visits.

One Final Gift

Scatter me not to restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by....
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times....
The family ties we shared
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who come to see....
A single lasting proof that says
I loved....and you loved me.
by D. J. Kramer

While visiting some cemeteries you may notice that headstones marking certain graves have coins on them, left by previous visitors to the grave.
These coins have distinct meanings when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America's military, and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin.

A coin left on a headstone or at the grave site is meant as a message to the deceased soldier's family that someone else has visited the grave to pay respect.
Leaving a penny at the grave means simply that you visited. A nickel indicates that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together, while a dime means you served with him in some capacity. By leaving a quarter at the grave, you are telling the family that you were with the solider when he was killed.
According to tradition, the money left at graves in national cemeteries and state veterans cemeteries is eventually collected, and the funds are put toward maintaining the cemetery or paying burial costs for indigent
