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".

Walter Lee Nowlin
Hi Shirley,

I am curious why you did not delete your duplicate memorial of Walter "Lee" Nowlin. Changing or omitting the middle name is not the same as deleting.

It is still a duplicate of the same man.

When this becomes a paid position that I need to take orders from someone, please let me know. But until then....

I have added his obituary Shirley. I had to work this morning and did not take the time. Guess I should have labeled the memorial "under construction", Lol.
Thank you

RE: Brungardts'
Shirley, I try not to list the names of living persons that are often included in full obituaries. I have transferred the following memorials to your care. Change the bio information as you see fit.
Memorial #156774553 & #156774554.

Thanks... Michael

Oops, I also created a site for William Clarence Lemons - # 156179338. He is my Uncle and I have and am adding photos to this page. What should we do?
