Bio

Any photos that I post were taken by me or are from my personal family photos. They may be used by anyone, anywhere, anytime.

What other hobby can boast that it is free, gets you outdoors, involves photography & computer skills, helps others, and lacks crowds, traffic and parking problems? Not to mention that the dead will rarely tick you off as much as the living will. :-)

Please understand that for me this is a hobby to get me outdoors and that I enjoy the peace and serenity that cemeteries offer. I only put on memorials for people I know or have some connection to--I am not doing a huge research project or making this my life's work. I am not looking to list huge numbers on FAG or to document entire cemeteries. I leave that to others.

Mostly I like to fulfill photo requests. But I do it in an unorthodox and nontraditional way. I do not look at plot numbers nor do I visit cemetery offices. I simply run off a list of requests, look at the names, and then ask which souls want to be found--amazingly, the ones who do then "pop up" in my line of vision or something draws me to the tombstone. I simply drive around slowly and wait to be led. It works for me and it makes me feel honored to be connected to the energy of past souls.
