Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing this research on the cemeteries from the area where I was raised, but once addicted, I go on and on. The memories of those from home are wonderful. I've even been able to go back in my photo albums and find photos to add to many memorials. I have no specific family I'm looking for, I just want to keep those memories alive.

Most of the contributors on Find A Grave have been wonderful to work with. Only a few haven't been willing to make additions, links or add bio's. I try really hard to include a bio with as many memorials as possible. Many old obits, I pull out of my scrap books. I feel the obits/bio's gives life to the person that we've lost, as well as gives us names to search for links. Sometimes I make mistakes so please do let me know so I can correct them.

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

We now have a Findagrave listing for the Columbarium at First United Methodist Church in Fort Collins.

Hi Shirley, I've sent all the information I had on my duplicated memorial to be edited, and the biography information to the creator of the original memorial. Hopefully, the changes will be made in a timely manner and I will delete mine. Thanks for the heads up. Vicki Peterson

Shirley, I am not sure how I missed linking Melvin's mother. Melvin is my half sister and brother's father. Thanks... Michael

Hi Shirley,

Received your sac for Orville's children:

Please link this man with his deceased children.
1. LaNaye #123908322
2. Cary #13393126
Thanks, Shirley

Just want you to know I can't link his children to him. You need to suggest the corrections to who ever has his children's memorials. The links run from child to parent not the other way.

Sorry, hope this helps.

Thank you for the obituary for our friend, Scottie. We were waiting for this to come out in the paper.

Are you related?

Do you know if there will be an interment? I would like to link him to his mother, but can not find the location of her grave or if she is on findagrave.

Thank you also for the photo. We did not have one to post and did not want to ask his family, yet.
