Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it if it is on my interment page or email it to you if it is on someone else's page!

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

Thank you so much for both updating and transferring management of my grandparents! I was able to add more photos and feel like their memorial is more complete. I see you've done this for many folks, and I want you to know your "retirement work" is deeply appreciated!

Hi Vern -- Barnwell Bishop is my Great-Great Grandfather. Would you mind if we used the photo you posted of his headstone in our Family Tree? We appreciate your efforts, and thank you for considering our request.

My Grandparents in Roseland Memorial Park
I had just started a memorial for my Grandmother when I had noticed you had already done that...for which I thank you, VERY MUCH

Is there a way of condensing the 2? I have some pictures of my grandparents which I'd like to put in a memorial for either of them

My Grandfather's memorial number is 127812976
LaVerne Frederick Wilhelm Cook

My Grandmother's memorial number is 127813071
Mourine Thelma Cook

I did use your photos of my grandmothers marker

The Memorial I was working on is 135887559

Is it possible for me to be assigned as the caretaker of their memorials?

I so appreciate what you do, just when I thought I was the only one remembering them.

THANK YOU -Keith Lattimore-Walsh

Ray and Betty Clark in Roseland Memorial Gardens
Hi Vern,

Thank you so much for adding Ray and Betty to this website and posting great photos of their markers. Ray was my maternal grandfather's older brother and he and Betty didn't have any children. Nobody else from the family lives in Michigan, so without your effort we probably never would have seen pictures of their final resting place. Would you mind transferring them to me? I'd appreciate it very much! Ray: #131692369; Betty: #131692333. I've added a photo so everyone can see what a great looking couple they were.

Thanks again,
Kory #47244808
