Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR,

YOUR GRAVESTONE
STANDS AMONG THE REST,
FORGOTTEN AND FORLORN.
YOUR NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT,
ON SLATE OR OLD LIMESTONE,
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE,
IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO MOURN.
YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT I EXIST,
YOU DIED BEFORE I WAS BORN.
YET, EACH OF US ARE CELLS OF YOU,
OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE
OUR HEART CONTRACTS AND BEATS A PULSE,ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN.

DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED,
SO MANY YEARS AGO,
SPREAD OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT,
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO.
I KNOW THAT YOU LIVED AND LOVED,
BUT, I WONDER IF YOU KNEW,
SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS SPOT,
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.

RE: death certificate
I don't know where you got that idea. Following is from FindAGrave help pages:

May I add a death certificate to a person's memorial page?
Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. Please select the option for "Other" in the "Type of photo:" to be added, as it is not a Grave, Person or Family photograph. NOTE: Death certificates do not necessarily contain completely accurate information about the deceased. There are often errors regarding the final burial location (as well as other data).

RE: HI AGAIN
I know how that feels. I lost my husband in 2001 and currently a very dear friend of mine can't seem to recovery completely from a major surgery he had over a year ago. I live in hope that what the Lord wants me to do will be revealed and that I have the strength to endure. Yes, it changes our outlooks completely. I am honored that you choose me and I will do my best to do right by you

RE: hi
Hi Roberta. You would have to contact Find A Grave and make the request thru them. I would be happy and honored to create your memorial and to take care of your memorials. Are you okay?

Duplicate photos
I see you have put photos on 74096881 and 71970403. Please remove them. I can not figure out why photos are posted when the is already a photo, unless the second is much better.

Thank you for trying to find the grave to photograph. I found his burial listed in the Indiana Archives, so that's the source. Perhaps he is buried elsewhere or his stone has become worn.

RE: Fixed one
Ah. Sometimes I am too obscure, even for myself. What I should have said was I think you accidentally used the wrong cemetery. You have a very beautiful memorial, you even included the obituary. At the bottom of the obituary it says "Burial will be in the Eel River Cemetery." not the Eel River Presbyterian Cemetery. The memorial at the other cemetery includes a picture of the headstone with the same dates as your memorial. Of course, I could be wrong. Gee, I'm sorry about that bit of confusion.
