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.

Name change
Hi Bruce, I'm sorry, but since I left you a name change request, it will not let me change the name. Thank you for the advice, I will do that from now on.

Your friend Brad Undertaker 61

Hi Bruce, I just entered a memorial for Rose Marie Bates. Her Fathers first name on his head stone is spelled, Augustus, that is also the way his name appears in Mrs. Bates Obit. Could you please change yours so my family link will be correct? Memorial # 68731329 In the Fairview Cemetery in Bluffton, IN.

This will greatly be appreciated.

The Paxsons at ANC
Thank you for your photo request for Cornelius and Ann Paxson at Arlington National. Their stone is one of the most worn that I've seen at Arlington, and was difficult to photograph, especially with overcast sky and snow on the ground. I finally photographed it in black and white rather than color and that helped a bit. I also have edited a close-up of the engraving, so that you might read it a bit better. Please let me know if you'd like me to try again when the sky is lighter and the ground provides more contrast than the snow does.

Thank you!
