YOU may use any of my Find-A-Grave photos you wish for your personal/NON-commercial use ~ with NO further approval from me. S Buller is married, has 2 grown sons, a beautiful daughter [by marriage], a terrific wife, 3 grandchildren, & is a US Navy Vietnam Era veteran. Any info on the Henry J Buller family/relatives of the Conrad Holdeman family is greatly appreciated.
****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain the records please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and willing to take them over. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really helps reduce duplicates. It would also be a good idea to leave someone instructions on how to do these transfers should you go inactive without warning.****
Duplicates: It is never my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the SAC and let me know. Nicely, please. I'll be happy to remove it. Please don't create a duplicate of my memorials...
And for those that don't seem to get what a dupe is: If I enter a memorial on Febr. 1st for Jacob Carter and then someone else enters another memorial for the same Jacob Carter on Febr. 19th, the one entered on Febr. 19th is the duplicate, not mine. And, you should remove the dupe!
Due to all the new find a grave members who show no respect for us (dedicated members for few or many years) I will only check email & messages about thrice a month & do a limited amount of research while processing the requested photo. I will fix what I can, when I can, & if I can.
I try to be as accurate as possible, but sometimes mistakes are made. Please feel free to help me correct them. At times there are different dates on headstones vs. death records. These dates I cannot correct, these are original records. If graves have been moved to other cemeteries, I didn't do it...someone else made that decision. Usually, if I say I couldn't find the stone...it wasn't without some concentrated effort (my wife is just like a bulldog when it comes to finding stones.
--- Also, like many other FAGers ~ I view the memorials on this site as loving tributes to our relatives & friends. I endeavor to "reunite" them with family, and if I am able, to add a tidbit of personal detail or a story about them. Also, if any photos are in error, then just ask and a correction will be made. I usually decorate the stone/s with flower/s before taking photos ~ if this irritates you or you don't like it ... you should go to a therapist ~ I believe the memorials on-line should reflect how the plots should look on Decoration/Memorial Day. Sorry if that's too blunt...I must be old-fashioned or something.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On somethimes polished stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh and blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Beloved one...the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the many you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you.
