Bio Photo You have my permission to use any headstone photo I have posted, as you wish.


If you are responding to me because of an "edit" I sent to you or a memorial I made, PLEASE include the memorial number or the URL to that page. A simple mention of their name is not enough.

I will gladly make changes or corrections, no matter how small, if you request them. PLEASE do this by clicking on "edit" at the upper-right corner of the memorial, use their form to notify me by email. If this is your loved one, I would prefer transferring management to you. Just ask, same process.

I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.

I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, especially the older, historical sections, long before I knew any of the "residents"... I am a regular visitor to Lower Lake Cemetery as it is nearest to me and I have friends and family there.

I began making entries at Find a Grave, first with ancestor's info, my parents in Hayward, then Lower Lake Cemetery because I have lived here for so long, I knew or know of many of the "residents." I knew many of these people personally and/or their families. I am not related to any of them directly. Two sets of in-laws, including my husband, many friends, high-school teachers and classmates, the doctor that delivered my son, etc., etc. My son has eight grandparents in this cemetery counting the greats- and steps-. My parents are in a Hayward cemetery because they made their own pre-need arrangements. If they were here, I would take care of them too. Thanks to Find A Grave I am able to "visit" them, add virtual flowers and notes, gather them and their families into virtual cemeteries I made for that purpose, and so on. I love that we can request headstone photos for those distant graves and get them! Usually. I DON'T LOVE THE FUSS ABOUT COPYRIGHT ISSUES THAT OCCUR OCCASIONALLY.

Every time I start to work on my family tree, I get side-tracked in the local cemetery. Since the beginning of 2011, I have been systematically photographing all the tombstones there and making memorials here. I REPEAT, FEEL FREE TO USE ANY HEADSTONE PHOTOS I HAVE ADDED AS YOU WISH!

I am always researching AKRIDGE and HAVENHILL/HEAVENHILL/HIMMELBERGER family trees... when I'm not getting lost in my neighboring cemetery.

Happy hunting.

I just wanted to thank you for putting a picture up of my uncles grave. Your thoughtfulness means a great deal. I was not able to go to his funeral. I don't know much about his last days.

Again thank you,

Connie Bell :'(

Thank you for Nina Fitts
My sister and I did not know there was a headstone for ďNana,Ē as we called her. Our mom told us that she was cremated and her ashes were spread on the lake. Iím sure thatís true, too. Maybe our Uncle Dick made the stone happen and we just never heard about it.

We spent a great deal of time in Clearlake Park and Lower Lake when we were kids. Itís wonderful to know that such great people still live there!

Thank you so much for uploading all those photos.

Mary M Fisher 82787143
I know it's a long shot, but any chance you're related or know anything more about the Mary M Fisher you created a memorial for (#82787143)? It looks like someone else gave you some obituary info to add and you said some was cemetery info. It looks like you gave the contributor's Find a Grave id #, but I can't figure out a way to search for just a contributor (as opposed to a memorial). Maybe you know how to do that? Thank you very much for creating the memorial! I've had very little to go on, but I think this is my GGG grandmother!

I apologize for that - I was cutting and pasting for several different people and forgot to check for edit on people that only had one record.

Thank you very much for the transfer. I will take good care of him.

Linda Wilson headstone

Thank you for adding the memorial and headstone photo for Linda Wilson in Lower Lake Cemetery. I appreciate your work. Are you related to her? If not, I'm her 2nd cousin and would like to have her record transferred to me. If you are related then that's great! Please let me know.

Thank you,
Amy in Texas
