Bio and Links
Bio Photo I could care less about the number of memorial that I create. Or that I manage.I am more concerned about recording the persons in the cemetery for all time in the internet where weather, vandalism, and time doesn't degrade a person after they have been laid to rest. I have seen many headstone worn to nothingness, broken by cowardly vandals who take "kicking a man when he's down " way too seriously! The dead in this case are known only to God, they truly become nothing more than another grain of sand!  I try to keep that from happening, as much as I am able. I freely transfer the memorial that I create, I am not stuck on 4th generation criteria. If you are related, you hold more ownership to that person than I! I just hate to have other people step on my toes to glorify their own numbers. It's the deceased that is important in establishing a memorial, not the creator of the memorial page.

Arthur and Marie Miller Headstones.....

Hello Bruce,

Your note of thanks for the headstone photos is greatly appreciated. It is sad that Marie's marker is in such a poor condition.

Best wishes,

Hi Bruce,

Glad you like the pictures. I see that there are still more photo requests from you (and others) and my husband and I will try to find them soon. We've lodged at the nearby Strasburg Hotel many times over the years, but mainly for hiking on nearby trails. We only recently thought to sleuth around Riverview after seeing the many requests. Like you, I love to connect families, and have been greatly rewarded in the Find A Grave community. We took these picture on Valentine's Day on what I think was the coldest day of the 2015-16 winter season!

take care,
