Bio Photo "The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten." -- Cesare Pavese

I love visiting cemeteries, ever since I can remember. Sometimes when I visit a cemetery and gaze over the area, I'm awe-struck by the number of souls who have walked this soil before me. Sometimes when I visit, I'm confronted by a dog who wants my lunch and when given it, becomes my friend for life. And sometimes when I visit a cemetery, I feel like I'm apartment hunting.

Forgive me if I make memorial errors or procedural mistakes. Please let me know of my errors and I'll gladly correct them. I'm just an old lady who's trying her best.

Thank you for your kindness and compassion...

Military Tombstone for John H. Alden
Hi you have posted a Military Tombstone Photo for John H. Alden Civil War Veteran Co L IL 12 Cavalry, who buried at Virgil Cemetery, Fulton Co., IL. Would it be possible to use your Gravestone Photo for him? I would be glad to give you credit for ownership of this wonderful gem. Appreciate you sharing.

Thanks for the picture of Abner's stone. Is there any chance the other half of it is lying there to figure out when he died? Thanks!

Thank you so much for the photos of the Blout family. This means so much since we are unable to get up there ourselves to see them.
