Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved to visit cemeteries and thought it was a little weird until I found this website. Visiting a cemetary satisfies many of my favorite hobbies: plants ( Whenever I go, I walk around watering plants that people leave for their loved ones but are unable to come back and take care of), photography, and history. I especially like to visit old cemeteries to take pictures of the elaborate monuments. I'm really happy to discover there are thousands of you out there that feel the same.

I try to put as much information as I can find on the internet with each memorial and also try to include the source. Feel free to use any pictures of headstones and grave markers that I have uploaded on your family websites or Ancestry,com.

Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers. ~ Hans C. Andersen

Thank You for the Flowers!
Hi,Sonia! I just noticed that, back in June, you added virtual "flowers" to my loved ones' memorials ...Clare, Pat & Tracy Swiontek, (Maryhill Cemetery). Very thoughtful, and appreciated!

RE: Jordan memorials in Mt Carmel
Thanks Sonja ! I had photos of all my relations but I am just starting to add them to Find A Grave.
If I find I have missed someone now I'll know who to ask!

Patrick family
In regards to the Patrick family in Our Lady of Sorrows, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind transferring ownership to me? I would appreciate it. Thanks.
