Bio and Links
Bio Photo
Please do not transfer memorials to me, especially in mass. I can barely maintain the memorials I already have.

I am still interested in adding others that I have an interest. I may possibly request memorials in which I may have a specific interest in the future.


I discovered this site in January of 2004 when I "Googled" my cousin who at that time had recently passed away. I thought this is a great site. I then entered all the members of my family.

Now, in addition to entering family and friends, I also enter people from the obituaries or news that for some reason or another attract my attention, especially if there is a photo.

I have a soft spot for Chicago/Chicago area Police Officers and Firefighters.

I enter people to honor them and so that they are noted and remembered beyond their family and circle of friends.

Some times after I have entered someone's loved one, I get an e-mail thanking me for entering their loved one; most people are pleased to discover their loved one on Findagrave; I know I was pleasantly surprised.

If, I have entered your loved one on here and you would like to take over their memorial; please use the edit feature or e-mail me to let me know that you want ownership and I will gladly transfer ownership to you.

By the same token if you discover your loved one here and you don't want them shown on this site, let me know and I will delete them.

If anyone has additional information, let me know by the edit button and I will gladly enter any additional information; also please let me know where you found that information or how you know that information.

RE: Keith W. Strohmeyer
I want to apologize to you. I try to put most of the bio and dates in, but I must not have. I have known his mother for a long time.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Nancy

Michael Cichan # 91810116
Hi! It was just brought to my attention that you'd added a photo on Michael Cichan's memorial (#91810116). Unfortunately, the photo you added is not his photo - see , which identifies the people in the photo you posted as Michael Zanger and Hollins Langton. If you could remove it from Michael Cichan's memorial, it would be very appreciated.

Tyshawn Lee
Hello Ladybug:

It is an honor to sponsor Little Tyshawn here on Find A Grave. The senseless murder of this dear little boy is a heartbreak and outrage. These people are stealing our future by taking our children. Prayers for the killing to stop.

I am thankful that you reached me with your message. It was very kind for you to take the time. Thank you for all your work on Find a Grave Dear Friend.
