"When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner|
Thank you in advance for the many updates and links that I receive almost daily for my memorials. I strive to keep up with them.
Before accepting information in edits now, there is a great effort made to confirm the information you send. One edit sent to me, may take 4 to 6 hours of my time searching on ancestry and other genealogy sites to complete. I gather the records for said edit, gain knowledge of the family, contact other contributors to link family members that I am able to find, so that the entire family can be linked on any given memorial.
Please make sure your information is accurate, so that I can accept it. There are a lot of people being linked to those they do not belong to due to so many "same names". It is an easy mistake, I know, as it has happened to me in the past. When possible, follow your loved one from birth to death, check your dates and locations lived to make sure it is the correct memorial.
Know that I appreciate your time and effort. Please, be respectful of my time and effort. If I have made an error, sign in to Find A Grave, and send me an edit. If you have documentation of your information, include that as well.
I would also like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.
Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.
Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"
When making CORRECTIONS & TRANSFERS
Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. ***PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES***
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.
Keep in mind, those of us who list the memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.
The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.
I am of the belief that "no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten." Phyllis Behrendt 2008
So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

You are more than welcome.

Thank you so much for sponsoring my Great Grandfather's memorial! It was such a surprise when I opened my email and had a message that his memorial had been sponsored.
He was a kind and gentle man, and I miss him every day.
So you made my day and I really can't thank you enough! ❤️

Thank you very much for submitting the photos. It makes genealogy research much more meaningful when there are pictures.
May the Lord bless you.
Since I happened upon your contributor page, I thought I would leave a note and say "Hi". I enjoyed reading your profile and agree with your sentiments. Thank you for sharing.

If you get a chance for a better picture please.
I hope to get up there sometime to mark the graves with GPS directions.

Thank You. When I saw YOU had created Levi's Memorial I was so thrilled. It means a lot to me to connect this wonderful family together. I we to Rico with Levi's family in about 1992. I had never been there. Jimmy and I played after we visited the burial location. I can still remember the anguish on Linda's body as she knelt there at her baby boys grave. I was about 14 or so and recall it as if I had just been there. Each memorial we put up is touching lives. Thank You my friend.
