I found my maternal grandparents' memorials on Find A Grave.
They are buried in Golden, Texas, and I lived in western New York. I had never been to their graves.
Find A Grave Contributor Bill75773 randomly added them.
My mother had been to her mother's committal service in 1979, but had never seen the grave marker.
In April of 2017, we took a trip to Golden to visit the gravesites.
I became a contributor to help others find their family & friends.
When I photograph a gravesite, I try to take both a plot photo and a closeup shot. I sometimes add plot photos to memorials that already have a closeup. This is not meant to imply that the first photo is not good enough. My only intent is to help future visitors to the cemetery to locate a grave they wish to visit. Also, in the caption of the photo, I usually give directions to the grave.
I invite you to visit the memorial for My Dad.
