I extend a very sincere thank you and apology for the 4 month lateness in acknowledging the lovely token you left for my loved eldest brother.

He is now with our parents and in God's keeping.

Thank you for transferring this memorial to me. I really appreciate it. I have come across your memorials when adding my family members. If you don't mind, I'd like to request a transfer of those people. I will try to do that from now on. If you have a problem with that, please just let me know. I am trying to enter on Find A Grave the memorials I know of and link them to family members. I have been doing genealogy for YEARS, but am rather a "new" member to Find A Grave. So a lot of people have entered a few of the memorials I am interested in before me. I hope to go back and enter all the obits I have on everyone. That is really the time-consuming part, as I have to type them all up!!! Many thanks again, and keep up all your good work!!!

Thank you
How generous of you to spend so much time & effort photographing & recording memorials. Please pay no mind to negative & rude people. Rules are set for a reason, to avoid chaos & I applaud you for your efforts & it is greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!
Dear Lady,

Thank you so much for taking the pictures at Woodmere of the Frahms. I also appreciate your time and dedication to helping photograph the graves of family members far and wide. Please do not be discouraged by negative feedback; know that the work you do is appreciated and the rules you follow are legal, sound, and fair. Thank you again for all that you do!

RE: Frances Augustine's maiden name.
I have been a member here for MANY years also and you are the FIRST person to quote the rule book. Who really cares if a person is a third great grandparent and not a second great grandparent so dear Lord we better not pass that one to a relative because they guidelines say only second great grandparent not third. HOLY COW! If they aren't related to you then why do you care?? I cannot figure out if you are playing "high and mighty" with the memorials you have created or what your plan is! Just because they are my husband's relatives does not mean they are not my family. If you have an issue with sharing people's memorials with them just because "you" have created the page then maybe this isn't the place for you. I don't care how many years you have belonged to this site you are arrogant and controlling.

ALSO, If you want to control how people use your photos of their loved ones graves than maybe you shouldn't take photos and add them to the memorial and allow someone else to take photos that can be shared in people's trees. YES it is your right and prerogative, but why in God's name would you want to create a memorial for people to see their loved one's final resting place and then keep them from storing a picture of the headstone in their file?? Only one reason, CONTROL. No one else here has the guts to tell you but I am going to tell you that I don't care how many years you have been a member here and the work you have done, it isn't all about YOU! And I wouldn't have left this message public but you have no other way to contact you so here it is, for all to read and see what an arrogant controlling person you are. I will not be contacting you again and I suggest that you think about why WE ARE ALL HERE, to help each other see our loved ones final resting sites, not to COLLECT memorials. Have a great day!

Hello: I haven't heard from you in a while. It's always nice to see new pictures posted in Woodmere. I changed Harry's birth year, as requested. I also found his parents and linked them to him. Keep up the good work...

RE: Frances Augustine's maiden name.
I need you to explain what you mean by out of guidelines. This woman is my husband's great great grandmother. Why would anyone have an issue with transferring a relative to a relative?


RE: Frances Augustine's maiden name.

I will transfer, even though she is out of guidelines (I do those on a case-by-case basis). Not everybody will do that, as you should be aware.

Lady in Black,

First of all, thank you so much for taking pictures of my father's and his stepfather's headstones. I had not seen them for almost thirty years as I'm no longer in the area.

Secondly, I noticed that the combination picture of their headstones on John's memorial has a caption with his name misspelled as "Martell". Would you be able to fix that for me?

Thanks so very much for your work in keeping many of us attached in some way to our loved ones.

Much Appreciation
First of all my hope is that you are feeling well these days. May you be blessed with continued strength. Next I wanted to extend my appreciation for the 2 memorials you created of (my paternal Aunt & Uncle) George & Genevieve Tier at Woodmere Cemetery (memorials # 133251484 and 133251485). I have placed a description in Ancestry on each of their pages but did not place the stone photos per agreement. Do folks ever ask you for permission to do so? Or would you rather transfer the memorial to me? I have never asked to do this before and unsure of the proper steps for requesting such, all advice is welcome. I know you are busy, I will pray for your health and hope to hear from you someday soon.
You are quite an inspiration! Much appreciation.

RE: Sam Nappo
Thanks for your help. Sam has 4 living siblings. Libra, his sister, is 84 and a real treat to be around. The last name in Italy was Nippo. We went the awful day Detroit was flooded. Plan to go again next spring. Hope to pick a better day. My graveyard buddy, Ellinda, has not been able to go "graving" because of a bad back. With luck she will be better by Spring. There's safety in numbers. If you would like, I will let you know when we are going and maybe we can team up. Carol

RE: Re: Pirvu photo requests
Hi Lady in Black,

Thank you for taking the time to take pictures of the Pirvu family grave.
My quest for the Pirvu family grave begun when I discovered your picture with the grave of the Pirvu's daughter Viola that died in 1929.

Regards from Romania!

Thanks! May not make it back there until next year. Hope to have better luck then.

Sam Nappo
That horrible day that Detroit flooded, was the day my son had promised to take me to Trinity and Woodmere. We hadn't watched the new reports and had to take many detours. The cemeteries muddy, but I didn't know when he would be able to take me again so we tried our best. With us was my 84 year old friend Libra Cramer (nee: Nappo) Sam's sister. She told me his name really was Salvatore but everyone called him Sam. I am going to get more information from her. Need correct spelling of name and full dates of events instead of just years. I have found your name many times. You are doing an awesome job. Thanks for the concern. Carol

Louis Purol and daughter, Arlyn
Thank you so much for going out to the cemetery and looking a second time for Mr. Purol's grave marker, and for creating a memorial for his little girl. Few people would have invested the extra time and effort that you did. I really appreciate your help.

Best Wishes,

I have been searching for my maternal grandfather's brother George Phillip DeWest. He searched his entire life for his brother. I believe this George is my grandfather's brother. Do you have any other information?
