Messages received are placed in bio for family.
Thanks to picture takers, I try to say THANKS, sometimes lost in volume of e-mails on edits, also sometimes system won't allow the Thank you to be sent! Especially if messages aren't allowed! One can pray, believe and receive, or we can pray, doubt and do without. I know experience is a hard teacher, the real test is often given first, and the lesson afterward. Some individuals won't accept ANY edits irregardless of proof!!

We all live on through the differences we make, by words and works, of love and compassion. More eyes and sharing make better memorials, documentation isn't always available to all. Due to distance, accessibility to records in different countries, or even eyes on at a Cemetery. Rudeness is unnecessary, good Memorials the point. Pic requests are limited to 20/wk, why is someone mad I make a request? I wonder!?! 2019 someone complained about something and 35,000 of my flowers were removed, why? Cause I honour others?

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

What I like about Find A Grave the tangible stone pictures of interlocking families.
Scattering of Cremains to me, is a romantic notion, a sound choice for some (& it can be), but my experience has shown that family can come to regret this decision in later years, as they have lost the opportunity to create a focal point for remembrance. That's where FindAGrave can be helpful.
Cemetery walking involves oodles of kms, extensive planning, travel time, riding multiple buses, bees, flies, gnats, ticks, mosquitoes, assorted other bugs (dragonflies ñ butterflies), dogs, burrs, briars, weeds, tall grass, snakes, scrapes, cuts, multiple holes to avoid, mud, dirt, snow, severe rain, dust, wind, blazing sun, rutted roads, hills and dales, getting lost, damaged knees, sciatica, other aches, and BUCKETS of sweat. Appreciate others that brave the elements too!

QKL TIME HOW SHORT is Aikens' Motto. Remember life is short - don't hold grudges. Everyone struggles, and no one is perfect. Do what you do with love and kindness. 'PARUM SUFFICIT' - a little is enough ~ is Barraclough's I have both of those covered! ~ ãüröræ UE We have not inherited the earth from our ancestors, merely borrowed it from our children!DAK ~ Life brings tears, smiles, and memories: the tears dry, the smile fades, but the memories live on forever. ~RIP Meredith
FYI • Under the Canadian Protection of Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), "a cemetery headstone and any information on it are considered to be in the public domain. Therefore, information obtained from these sources are considered as 'open' information which may be released. This is true regardless of whether or not the people mentioned are living or dead or how long they have been dead."

Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited, memories are made tangible and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.
I must be up and doing, aye, each minute. The grave gives time for rest when we are in it. – W.S. Blunt
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.

Annoying when people here are able to communicate to me, as I'm giving that way, but leave NO options to respond!! That's Unrespectful to others!

THIS quiet Dust was Gentlemen and Ladies, And Lads and Girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing, And frocks and curls. This passive place a Summer's nimble mansion,
Where Bloom and Bees Fulfilled their Oriental Circuit, Then ceased like these. - Emily Dickinson

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps You wouldn't want to know.
But, here's another question, which Requires another view,
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?

'Be yourself, everyone else is taken.~Oscar Wilde
Before you assume, learn the facts.
Before you judge, understand why.
Before you hurt someone, feel.
Before you speak, think.

It is indeed desirable to be well descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors. --Plutarch (AD 46-127)
Best advice received, "Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm for your willingness to help others, especially as we honour those before us, and thank you for submitting, as best as possible, sourced information that generations of families of the deceased will forever appreciate!"

Morning or Evening wherever you be!?
Life is just a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things, but we were never meant to stay.
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with our Lord.
Not a religious gal, spiritual I be
'Not for fame or reward, not for place or for rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity, but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it. They suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died.' May you rest in eternal peace.

"We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie in Flanders Fields."
~~ John McCrae

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, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
so long 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.

Days Gone By;
The special book upon the shelf, was made with many hands. Our ancestors who posed back then, all came from different lands. Their pictures were all tucked away, and rarely did we see, the importance of these treasures - The start of you and me. The history of our families, now here in black and white, preserved with special care and time, each page is done just right. When time permits, we take it down, and think of days long past. Our hopes, our dreams, our heritage, all safe and made to last.

As I research I'm finding quite a lot of duplicate memorials, suggesting merges, and updating existing memorials with their parents, families and dates as I discover them.

Coimetromania (Ko-metro-MANE-ia): An abnormal attraction and desire to visit cemeteries.
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. ~author unknown
Remember This:
I have had the distinct pleasure to collaborate with some truly wonderful fellow Contributors and to offer burial records I have come across to give to others for them to add Memorials for whom they are related to . Through integrity, honesty and mutual respect, all beautiful things are possible. With having cancer, it has been an ongoing invaluable experience to work with such wonderful upstanding people.

Behind every Contributor #, there is a human being. Human beings who care about the deceased, who give the deceased the honor and respect they deserve and to Memorialize them. Doing deceptive things to other Contributor's and to the Memorial's they have created
or maintain is not only disrespectful to the Contributor who manages the Memorial, but most of all, is disrespectful to the deceased person for whom the Memorial is for. Through partnership together, the deceased will be forever memorialized on this beautiful Find a Grave website.
May it remain free and a valuable resource, especially for those without resources.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars!
We had a beer, and toasted you,
we miss you lots, it makes us blue.
Rest in peace, our brave knight,
we will be together another night.

Thank you {Find A Grave} for all the worthy and vital work you do!!
It is an honor to be a member.
Thanks to other volunteers for their valuable input. If it wasn't out there, you wouldn't have found it to correct it!
Will respect any request to take down a memorial and apologise in advance as it is not my intention to cause any hurt or pain, just Honouring Souls. And it has happened, although rudeness unnecessary!
Wolf is a symbol of guardianship, ritual, loyalty, and spirit. Wolf has the ability to make quick and firm emotional attachments and often need to trust their own instincts. Thus, they teach us to do the same, to trust our hearts and minds, and have control over our own lives.

Remembering all 'Loyalists' with blessings for their ideals, principles and courage. Happy to be able to document and preserve their memories for the future.
Ducit amor patriae.
