Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the 40's in The Bronx, NY
Father of a son born in 1978

I have worked as a clinical social worker in the New York State Office of Mental Hygiene- and as a medical social worker at Hospital for Joint Diseases /Orthopedic Institute and St Lukes/Roosevelt Hospital specializing in Home Care. Have had a private practice in psychotherapy and certified in Elder Care/case management, NY State Nursing home evaluator. I moved to Westchester County in 1997 following a long residence in New York's Greenwich Village.
I have discoverd a degree of serenity in visiting the cemeteries in my area, and in providing a service to those who contact me.
There are some amazing stories to be interperted in reading the headstones.

I will only establish memorials of graves I have visited and photographed. During the visit I honor the lives and memory of the deceased and offer a prayer for their descendants health and happiness.

I have adopted Bethel Cemetery in Croton-on Hudson, Old Baptist Church Cemetery in Yorktown, Shrub Oak cemetery, Cedar Hill in Montrose
Kyrias Pupa in Ossining [Many of the headstones in this cemetery include memorials to family members murdered by Nazies in Auschwitz in 1944],

First Hebrew Cemetery in Peekskill, King David Memorial Gardens in Putnam Valley and Rose Hills among others including:Sisters of the Atonment at Graymoor also Hillside, and Old VanCortlandtville, and Assumption cemeteries in Cortlandt Manor NY, Mount St Francis in Peekskill

First Presbyterian Church Yorktown
When I find a Revolutionary War or Civil War grave I try and research that souls's history and include his regimental history and his service record if I can locate it to his biography, This being the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
I provide the American Legion with the location of military veterans graves so they can be provided a flag on memorial day

Whenever possible I will try to include photos of couples graves and family plots with Moms and dads with their children.

I believe we are meant to remember and honor people whose graves we visit and add to Findagrave.
Only recently have I been the recipient of the kindness of other members of FindAGrave and have discovered the graves of my Grandfather, and his wives, and learned that he had many brothers. My family has been added to many fold am I am overjoyed.

NOTE: All of my photos are free to all who would like to use them all of my work is voluntary.
Please feel free to share.

Thanks for sending me the information about the Westchester findagrave group. I do not live there but I have been visiting my brother (mostly in the winter months). The beginning of may I will be starting my next class so I will not be as available as usual but I normally still work on transfers, adding information and limited help for people interested in genealogy etc.

RE: Delancy Cole's memorial photo
That's true, admin doesn't like stock photos, like the POW/MIA flag, icon photos, etc. They say, if you find yourself posting one photo on multiple memorials, it's probably wrong. (I thought you were saying they wouldn't allow you to post a stock photo of that specific soldier.) Anyway, happy hunting! Rich.

RE: your photos are loading sideways
The strange thing is that the photos are upright from viewing on my iPad. Hmmmm. Will have to look further into this

RE: Your wonderful photo of Gussie
You are so very welcome. Hopefully this will bring some well deserved joy to the family. This is such a tragic story. She was a very beautiful woman. Are any of her children still alive today to see this? It has been my pleasure to contribute in some way.

RE: Albert Cruger's photo
It's helped me tremendously to learn the cemetery. And, I have the advantage of maps and records to help me, so I don't spend a lot of time wandering about. I always look at the file to see what other people are buried with the person, which helps to find the plot. So many people, now and in the past, do not have markers.
