Bio and Links
Bio Photo I feel these memorials should be maintained by family whenever possible. With that in mind, if I am not related to the person, I will be happy to transfer the memorial.

If I have a picture on the memorial you want to use, feel free, you don't need to ask.

I surely don't understand some contributors that hold your families memorials "Hostage", If you are not related then "Give it up", I absolutely believe in KARMA...(and Ghost) but that's another story...

I spend most of my free time working on my Family history and find roaming old cemeteries is amazing. Some of the headstones I see are nearly unreadable, some are eroded to the point they can no longer be read. If we don't try to preserve these at least by photos, they will be lost forever, no one will ever know who they were. By taking photos and sharing the info, maybe someone who is searching will find who they are seeking.

I'm back in Texas now but spent a few months in Pennsylvania. I found the cemeteries there are
unique and some so very old. I loved it and the trees and grass, lol everything was so GREEN!

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories will never fade, because ones loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart,for as long as there is a memory, they live with in our heart.

I saw this on another contributors page (R Schuerer #46794628), It is so true. Makes you think, don't it.....

I believe that a soul is awakening whenever someone remembers and thinks about the deceased person no matter how many years have passed. The soul may be an unknown, a distant family member or a very close relative. God knows the soul of this person who is never forgotten by Him.

It seems the lives of acquaintances or certain relatives, whom you had the personal opportunity of knowing during their lifetime, become more significant after their death. Upon reflection of their lives, you realize the importance of their individual needs that you did not fully appreciate while living. Little or no gratitude was ever expressed by you in appreciation of knowing a particular person.

It appears that we take life so much for granted that we miss the real important happenings and occasions. So many memories of life's events are so easily and quickly forgotten. Suddenly you realize upon death or some time afterwards, the significance of that person's life on your own.
Opportunities of love and/or friendship lost forever.

No person is ever truly dead until the last person forgets to remember them.

Hi! Sorry it took me long to reply, I'm new to this and I didn't know that I had msges. Wow! I wondered who put all this information, it is nice to meet you online. Maybe one day we will meet in person after all we are family! 😆

RE: Bernice Lucille Carr Friend # 99476232
Yep thought you'd like that. One caveat about folks who want transfers - there is a whole lot more to this. Collectors want your work to add to theirs: often they are running a business but I have no interest in their ventures. I go with what Find A Grave guidelines state. I often go into crime-infested neglected areas wasting my own gas and doing my own research. That said, several of us in one area took on a few cemeteries that nobody else wanted to inventory...we got a lot of data that was long forgotten. For example, check out Carl Braatz - this guy is cool!...# 96241199

RE: Vinita L Hughes
Thanks for posting the death certificate. I had seen it on Ancestry and it was the first real understanding of her cause of death. My grandparents didn't seem to really know or perhaps it was just too painful to talk about.

Can't think of anything else I can add except that Vinita's middle name was Louisa.

Again, we really appreciate your hard work.

Vinita L Hughes: 1919-1920
Dorothy Hughes Bills was my mother and Vinita was my aunt.

Not familiar enough to know what is involved in having the memorial transferred to me. Keeping updated? Responding to questions about Vinita? Please advise. I am willing to help.

As noted, none of the siblings were half-siblings. My grand parents were only married once.

RE: 112046539 William M Arrington
Mr. Arrington may have had a marker at one time. 100 years of neglect, vandalism, and harsh environment has taken a toll on many gravesites in Concordia. Concordia had a pretty rough time in the 70s and 80s.
