I am here, making a small footprint, creating memorials and photographing burial sites. My headstone photos may be used with proper credit. I hope they help many people in more ways than one.
Recording the death of someone is in honor of their life, and never meant to disrespect those left to mourn. I understand the pain of losing family and friends; and also the awe of finding an ancestor. It is bittersweet in some ways..
Please leave a flower for my mother, <a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=116186646
">June</a>; Father, <a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=2962914
">Jack</a>; and my two sisters, <a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=5595787">Kay Rose </a>, who was taken from us far too soon, and <a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=48970593"> Gwen </a>, also my best friend. I never imagined life without her ~ Thank you!
My family line is: Smith of IN/Germany; Carpenter of LA; Klein of LA/Germany; Girard of LA/France; Van Auken of IN/Holland; Van Wormer of NY/Holland (etc); which we all know....leads to many others :)
I will transfer any family members as long as they are not mine, unless it is a mandatory. If I have your family or close friend, please explain the relationship, as all requests will be considered individually.
If you ask me to include information on a memorial, please try to Include Your Sources via SAC; under "edits" on the said memorial. No guarantees on any that do not have a source under edits or to my email. Having spent many, many hours correcting errors on my own family members, I'd prefer not to be the one who spreads misinformation on anyone else's family members. Should you have any questions about a memorial and see my name or member ID as the source of information, please contact me and not the person who maintains the memorial. This is why the information is posted.
Thanks, in advance, for understanding.
...Life is short, be nice, play kind, and don't sweat the small stuff...
