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.

A Horan
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!

Wish it was more than a funeral home marker, but you can use it.
