RE: Re: Fred Rousseau
I am not sure Fred was actually buried at the memorial site. That is why it says burial unknown. I was told that his body was cremated. He wanted the ashes to be placed in a capsule and sent into outer space. I think his name was etched onto the monument out of respect for who he was. I will ask at the office about the details. I do not want to overstep my bounds here. I do not know the person that added the memorial to find a grave. I was hesitant to add the picture since the creator of the site did not add it themselves. But, I have a lot of respect for Fred and I think he deserves to have his name etched in stone.

RE: Re: Fred Rousseau
Thank you for the note. Yes, Fred was a legend, a great man and truly missed by all. I only met him a couple of times at Grandlawn Cemetery when I was doing genealogy work on my family tree. He was a great inspiration to me. He is why I do find a grave now. In his memory. At Grandlawn they call me "Fred's replacement". That I could never be. While I was out graving I noticed that his memorial did not have a picture so I took it and posted it for him. I was surprised that it was not posted yet. He has a large family plot. I will have to go into the office and look up the exact location of the graves. Then I will add it to the memorial. Grandlawn staff all loved and respected Fred. This is his time of year, Christmas. Happy Holidays.

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 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.

Bob Bartell
