"We actually don't fear death. We fear that no one will notice our absence, that we will disappear without a trace". (unknown)|
People come to Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. People volunteer on Find a Grave for many reasons; genealogy, curiosity, closure. Sadly, some are in a contest to see how many memorial pages they can put in, mistakes and all, and they hold tight to those pages they've created even if they aren't related to them at all…for them it's all about the numbers.
My friend, Melinda Fowler, and I started doing this for our own families and then it quickly became something bigger…it was about other people's families. We have gotten such satisfaction out of fulfilling requests and everyone is so grateful. But it is "we" who are grateful for the opportunity to honor your relatives. We're not in this for the count, but for the gratification in connecting relatives and for recognizing the need to say "I WAS HERE".
p.s. I take a lot of random pictures in the Danbury, CT and Westchester County, New York area. If I should happen to run into your family and you would like to take ownership, by all means let me know and it's done. Families should stay together!

|Sarah Bach||Thank you|
I was so touched by your bio because it magnified how I truly feel the purpose of remembering those that have passed before us. Thank you for your time and effort. I happened to see your profile as I was discovering distant Foshay relatives buried in Danbury cemeteries.

Thank you for the photos!
|K||RE: Roshka transfers...|
You have been extremely kind. I know his memorial is in great care.

I hope you don't mind that I transferred over Paul Roshka into your care. You accepted other members of his family and I wanted to keep them together under your care.
If you can't or don't want to keep his memorial, feel free to transfer his memorial back into my care.

Thank you so much, Linda, for taking and posting the headstone of my great grandfather! You are truly an angel on earth.
|Mark Holmes||RE: Picture for Henry|
Yes, you can go ahead and transfer if you wish. Thanks very much.
Thank you! The picture is fine, slightly blurry but perfectly legible, no need for a return trip.
