Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner




Hello,

Thank you in advance for the many updates and links that I receive almost daily for my memorials. I strive to keep up with them.

Before accepting information in edits now, there is a great effort made to confirm the information you send. One edit sent to me, may take 4 to 6 hours of my time searching on ancestry and other genealogy sites to complete. I gather the records for said edit, gain knowledge of the family, contact other contributors to link family members that I am able to find, so that the entire family can be linked on any given memorial.

Please make sure your information is accurate, so that I can accept it. There are a lot of people being linked to those they do not belong to due to so many "same names". It is an easy mistake, I know, as it has happened to me in the past. When possible, follow your loved one from birth to death, check your dates and locations lived to make sure it is the correct memorial.

Know that I appreciate your time and effort. Please, be respectful of my time and effort. If I have made an error, sign in to Find A Grave, and send me an edit. If you have documentation of your information, include that as well.

I would also like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"


When making CORRECTIONS & TRANSFERS
Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. ***PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES***
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

Keep in mind, those of us who list the memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

I just want to tell you that I don't mean to step on your toes by posting a photo on one of your recent memorials. Let me know if I can be of any help with posting photos and forgive me.

Thank you so much for contacting me regarding the above memorial. I try to always confirm information before I post it but this one completely missed the mark. I appreciate you letting me know and I have removed the photo.

Like you, I want to make sure the information I post is accurate and reliable. So, please, keep up the good work!

Kindest regards,

Delores

RE: Sharon Martell
No...I'm not related as I created a memorial for her husband back in January of this year & while doing research on his family etc & came across the memorial you had created for Sharon.Just thought it would be nice to have them linked together is all.If you are family or a friend & you'd like for me to transfer Donald to your care,please just ask & I'll be more then happy to transfer him to you.

I mainly try to create memorials for our Veterans & their families as it is my way of saying
"Thank-you" to them.Having been married to a military man (Air Force) I sorta know what the families left behind go through if ya will...

Have a great week-end <(^_^)>

RE: Eugene Oster
I had to smile at the request. After the marker was placed I could find a memorial for Gene. For what ever reason the system had a hiccup. I was able to transfer them over.

RE: Jeremiah Brooks
Wow, you have done a really nice job on this memorial. As difficult as it was to travel in those days, I wish we had some insight into why he went all the way to Texas and then returned to Tennessee. It's not like one could get on the interstate highway and be there overnight. Even by train, it would take more than a week. Sigh, I guess at this point, we'll never know the underlying stories of how and why. Again, great job documenting his life story.

Thank you for transferring Gordon to me. It did break my heart that a stranger did his memorial. I was planning on doing it. He is not forgotten and never will be.
I understand your thought behind what you do and I do appreciate the thought, but you did the memorial four days after he died not giving his family time to do anything. Again thank you for transferring Gordon's memorial
