Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

Hi Chris,

I did not have any of these nicknames in the maiden name, I don't know how they got there. I think they are all ok now. Thank for your concern and pointing this out to me. I think I'll have to check my memorials and see how often that happened.

Thanks again

RE: Nicknames
I posted that almost 6 years ago - It all ends up in the same spot on the memorial. I knew "Joey" all the time I was in Prospect. He was a wonderful person and brought joy to many people. a

RE: Dilcie Hood
I have no clue how the quotes got there as I do not use them. I thought they were added by you submitting the change. Very odd indeed!

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your suggestion to change a name; however, this is my step-mother and I know that this is what she would have wanted. I have denied your request and given you an explanation of same in my denial. She was married to Denny Hill, whom she loved very much and he died very suddenly. She then married my father whom she also loved who died very suddenly. My father and Denny Hill are buried side by side and she is buried on top of my father. This is the way she would have wanted her name recorded. Sometimes you can't always "go by the book" in all circumstances and since I knew Dee personally, I'll be following her wishes. Cheers

Thanks, Chris! I corrected the Will part...never noticed it looking like a maiden name with the slant.~~Lynda.

You sent a correction asking me to remove a nickname from the maiden name field. When I checked the memorial there was nothing listed in the maiden name field. Maybe the removal was automatic, I don't know.

I will not be listing the name you gave as the nickname until I can do research to verify it.
