Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the history, the architecture, the beauty, and mostly the serenity of a cemetery, especially Hollywood Forever where I've been visiting for 30 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most.

Memorials are gladly transferred to anyone who'd like them - save for my own family members.

Always feel free to post a Public Message for me.

I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Cemetery offices are much more likely to cheerfully provide family members with grave locations than photo volunteers, especially those of us they see often. We don't want to wear out our welcome, so to speak, and appreciate your calling or emailing the cemetery in advance to get the grave location. Hollywood Forever's phone number is 323-469-1181 and their email address is Please help us help you!

RE: re:Freida Levine Brooks
Jim - according to my mom she would have died in mid 1940's. Sometime after my mom was born in 1943 - but only 2-3 years later. How exact of a date do we need?

RE: re:Freida Levine Brooks
Hi Jim - Thanks for responding so quickly!

I will try to find a date of death - I have one for Sam (her husband and the other person i put a request in for). They were both buried in the Jewish section - sorry - i should have included that info in the original note.

RE: Dowd Grave Photos
I did see the other Dowd family grave photos you took; again, thank you for going the extra mile. The photo with the specific locations marked is priceless. You are providing a great service and like my family, I'm sure many other families are as sentimentally touched by your work. You've given us all a chance to re-connect with our lost loved ones, even if it is only through a photo of their grave marker. Again, many, many thanks!

Dowd Grave Photos
Please accept my most sincere thanks for the great photos of the grave markers and burial locations for my cousins. Your kind gesture means a great deal to those of us on the East Coast who are not able to visit their grave sites. Words cannot express our gratitude. Thank you!
Best regards,

Jim, thank you again for finding my dad's gravestone. Every time I look at it, I choke up. I had another question if you don't mind; As a surprise, I want to forward the notes and information and photos to my brother. Can you tell me how I can do that? Is it possible? He has no idea in the world that I did this, but he has done so much for me I'd like to return the favor. But I am SO not a techie, so any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you.

Oh, Jim. I wish I could find the words to thank you for what you've done, not just for me but for my brother, as well. We had so little time with him, but I can tell you for a fact that there was love enough for eternity. This is the first time I've ever seen his headstone. We were so poor after he died--I was 14, my brother 17, and we were still paying off debts from my sister's death when she was 7 and I was 5. There just wasn't enough money to take the bus from Santa Monica to North Hollywood, not enough money to put a tombstone on my sister's grave. I have to tell you, I didn't think seeing his name on that granite would affect me so much, but, oh, Jim, it chokes me up every time I look at it. I wish I was there, sitting on the grass, running my hand over the letters in that tombstone; thank you for making me feel like I am. Thank you, Jim. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I have only one question: I need to edit the notes--I want to keep only the notes with the Navy flag. I need to show both names, me and my brother. I don't want him to feel left out when he sees this. How can I edit what I said, erase the one under my name and keep the other one? Thank you, and Jim, thank you again. You can't know what you did.

I want to thank you very much for the pictures of my Grandmother, Uncle and Aunts Burial site. The pictures are crystal clear and better then I had hoped for. Thank you again.
