"Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them." - George Eliot
I have always been a cemetery enthusiast for as long as I can remember. Not to mention I have been in the death care industry for about 10 years now. Being in the business, I understand the importance of memorializing our loved ones and making sure they are not forgotten.
I do not have any direct ties or relationships to any of the memorials I have added, the loved ones contained herewith, or their families. I also do not have any ties to the funeral homes or cemeteries cited in any of the memorials. Find a Grave is simply a hobby for me. Any memorials I have added come from obituaries from funeral home websites (whom I credit), newspaper obituaries, miscellaneous internet research or simply walking thru any cemeteries.
Please do not send any nasty or antagonistic messages. Any negative messages will not be responded to and will be deleted. My intent on posting memorials is not malicious or invasive. My sincerest intent and hope is that you would not feel exploited but that you would embrace the memorial of your loved one or friend.
I do not have any ties to any of the memorials I have sponsored. Find a Grave allows up to 5 pictures for every memorial at no cost. In order to allow more than 5 pictures, a donation of $5 allows you to sponsor a memorial so that you can add up to 20 photos. My sponsorships were the result of trying to add a picture or updated picture of a headstone and the photo maximum had already been reached. I am a Find a Grave supporter and my donation is nothing more than wanting to support a worthy cause.
I respond to any updates or corrections as quick as possible. I usually like to get to them either on the day the request was sent or at least by the next day. However, if I am busy it may take a while. Please be patient.
I am very flexible on transfers. Please just ask ;o)

Management of parents memorials I have sent 2 emails to Find A Grave to be given management rights of my parents memorials but have not heard back & still have not been given the rights yet. First one sent on March 2014. Second one a month ago. What else do I need to do?
