Bio and Links
Bio Photo Due to 3 deaths in my immediate family which the last one included my husband of nearly 40 years who died of cancer. It may take me some time to get back to you, or make edit changes.. Thank you for understanding.

"So much of what is great has sprung from the closeness of OurFamilyTies."
----- Sir Thomas M. Barrie (1860-1937), playwright and novelist

I do add non-family graves, If I've added one of your friends or family members and you have additional information. Go to the "EDIT" tab on the memorial page to send me a correction or addition. I will do transfers to family members even if they are not within the findagrave guidelines, as long as the person you're asking for is not my own family.

"Wer die Vergangenheit nicht ehot verliet die Zukunft. Wer seine Wurzeln verrichtet kann nicht wachsen."
Who does not honor the past, loses the future. Who destroys its roots, can not grow.
----- Friedrich Hundertwasser, Austrian artist-architect, 1928-2000

RE: Abraham Daniel Schermerhorn
Thanks for your quick response. I appreciate the time and effort it takes to create and maintain these memorials. Makes it great for those of us who live far away.
