"Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear."

Everyone is a mother, father, son, daughter, sister, brother to someone and everyone deserves to be remembered. Lest we forget those who have fought for our freedoms as well as those who have gone before us.

I am only the caretaker of the memorials I create and believe family members of these memorials are entitled to manage their memorials, therefore I encourage family to ask for transfers.

It is never my intention to create a duplicate memorial. If you come across a duplicate that I have created after yours, please use the "Suggest Other Corrections" tab to let me know and provide the number of the original memorial so information, flowers and messages can be merged and saved. Thank you.

We are all in this together and sometimes mistakes are made, so if you see changes or corrections, PLEASE use the "Suggest Edits" tab on individual memorials to suggest information corrections or additions. This sends a direct link to the memorial as well as your own profile page. I will check suggested edits before accepting and will request more information if I can't verify the information submitted. NOTE: From F.A.G. Administrator concerning edits:"You are allowed, and encouraged, to require official documentation when considering edit requests".

EDITS: As of 2018, due to the volume of incorrect or non-verifiable information, when you submit an addition or correction using information from an official source including published obituaries military records, birth, marriage and death certificates, please include the link that anyone can access to that source or type the information referencing the source, so that I can verify. If I can not verify the information, I will decline it.

If wish to add additional information such as military status or a significant lifetime achievement, please use the "Suggest Other Corrections" tab to request these changes. Copy-and-paste census, Social Security indexes and other data are not "bio's" and will not be added to the memorial. I will, however, use information from them to update/correct the memorial if needed.

I WILL honor our Veterans for their service. Please do not ask me add one's former military rank as a prefix. Use of the rank as part of one's name is strictly prohibited by the Department of Defense (DoD). Use of rank is reserved for career 20-year retirees. I will, however include one's service rank in the bio if so requested.

Please do not request to add a printed obituary to a memorial. This is a violation of copyright laws, a violation of Find A Grave guidelines and can raise privacy issues for listed survivors. I will, however, use information from them to update/correct the memorial if needed. Please do not upload scanned obituaries, vital records or newspaper articles in the photo section per Find A Grave guidelines.

Please do not post obituaries and other "bio" information in the Flower section of the memorial. Any posting of such information in the flower section will be reported as abuse.

Thank you to everyone who has sent edits along the way, to those who have responded to edits I have requested and the many volunteer photographers who make it possible to pay respects to loved ones far away.

You can contact me through any of the memorials that I maintain by sending me an edit using the Suggest Other Corrections tab.

Remember, each memorial created here has a memory of someone once loved, now gone, but not forgotten.

Always a silent hurt, many a silent tear,
but always a beautiful memory of one we loved so dear.
God gave us strength to bear it, and courage to take the blow,
but what it meant to lose one will ever know.

"Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble 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.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew.
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you."
