3/19/2024 I am seeing several photos posted to memorials that are really not very pleasing to look at. The headstone may be overgrown with weeds and/or the photographer has not taken the time to sweep the dirt and debris from the stone. When I come across these types of photo's I will go ahead and post the photo I have taken. I put effort into cleaning up the headstone prior to taking the photo so that it is presentable. I do not apologize for wanting the memorials I am involved with to look the best that they can look. This is a recording for history!!

I started researching my family in 1996. A truly wonderful experience. The more I learn the more I realize I do not know. Finding the resting places of my ancestors is an important part of my search. I enjoy photography so photographing grave markers while out just fell into place. I enjoy helping others so fulfilling a photo request is a very special thing.

"I am because you were."

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you!
This is inscribed on the headstone of Wilmer D. Poe who is buried in Lakewood Memorial Park in Hughson, California.

If you speak their name, they live.

Below is a definition of what a cemetery truly is. I originally came across this posted on the bio page for Find A Grave contributor--Cristy: ID #46780434. It was written by her dad's cousin, Mary Lou Brannon.

So folks, now I know why I spend the time I do In my local cemeteries. Thank you Mary Lou for writing this wonderful piece and Thank You Cristy for sharing it.

THIS IS A CEMETERY
Lives are Commemorated - Deaths are
Recorded - Families are Reunited -
Memories are Made Tangible - and Love is
Undisguised. This is a Cemetery!

Communities accord Respect, Families
Bestow Reverence, Historians seek
Information and Our Heritage is thereby
Enriched.

Testimonies of Devotion, Pride and
Remembrance are carved in stone to pay
Warm tribute to Accomplishments and to
The Life - not Death - of a Loved One.
The Cemetery is Homeland for Family
Memorials that are a sustaining source of
Comfort to the Living.

A Cemetery is a History of People - a
Perpetual Record of Yesterday and a
Sanctuary of Peace and Quiet Today. A
Cemetery exists because Every Life is Worth
Loving and Remembering - Always!
