I remember as a kid my mother would take me often to Glendale Forest Lawn. We would bring lunch (McDs) and sit by the graves in the very old section (B section) of the cemetery. When we finished our meal, we would then walk around and clean off the grave markers. Mom and I didn't have any family members buried at Glendale Forest Lawn until 1995 when my grandfather passed away. Then Glendale Forest Lawn had an whole new meaning to me.

It's important to me that no one is forgotten and should be remembered. I have been doing family tree for 20+ years as well as photography and they are both a big passion of mine.

I enjoy being a volunteer for Find A Grave, cleaning off the graves the best I can, taking pictures of the markers and creating memorials. When creating the memorials, I try to connect their relatives or spouses to the memorials. I cross reference all information before adding it to the memorials. I know how frustrating seeing misleading or incorrect information in the family tree so I try to provide the most accurate information as if it's my own family tree.

Editing my memorials- I enjoy the time and effort in what I put in to creating each memorial. I love starting the memorial out with just a name and a date, building the memorial and connecting the person(s) to their loved ones. If I have trouble finding correct information to add to the memorial, then I will add the information I am certain of and will revisit the memorial when I have more information. I don't approve any edits requests for my memorials unless the information cross references and if it doesn't, then I will not approve the edit. I want to make sure the information is correct and matches to the person. If I decline your edit your request, contact me and we can brainstorm to provide the correct information to the memorial. I won't take if personal if you don't approve any of my edit requests. Everyone researches differently and I respect that.
