Bio and Links
Bio Photo The photo here is a pretty good metaphor. I would be the duck on the far left.

I believe in Random Acts of Kindness of all kinds. Daniel Pletcher has a virtual cemetery for memorials that could use remembrance tokens. I liked his idea and created one here. The contents will change periodically and I try to keep the number between 10-15, but sometimes it's larger.

Did you know that an average of 100 or more US firefighters die in the line of duty each year? I have virtual cemeteries for deceased firefighters, mostly from Michigan, and a few police officers. Please visit them if you can.

I love animals and am currently owned by a 13-year old beagle named Mollie Brown. We still miss her pal, Buddy, who died a year ago. His memorial is in my Brown Family virtual cemetery.

I have added photos of both tombstones and people to memorials created by others. Between Dec 2-4, 2013 I also deleted 40 memorials of mine that were shown to be duplicates when two cemeteries were merged. I didn't particularly enjoy doing that but mine were the later entries so...

I know 3 excellent guidelines for interacting with other people.

"Assume good faith."
"Use good manners."
"Don't bite the newcomers."

I'm beginning to feel less like a newcomer, but I still and always will make mistakes. Please don't bite me. I already have enough wounds and scars to last a lifetime.

Best Wishes to you all,
CarmasKid, 11 Sept. 2014

RE: Grave Photos
Thank you for saying my name is pretty. It has much meaning for me.

After looking at the duplicate photos of headstones you listed and discovering out of the six listed, all six show headstone photos where the headstone is cut off in the picture, therefore, not showing the entire stone. If it were me in search of a headstone photo of a loved one...I would select the photo showing the entire stone. Does it really hurt to have two photos on a page when five can be posted? The one for Kate Bosack #133630610 shows her family plot headstone in the photo bearing her maiden name, to me that is special. I was about to delete Daniel Ferstle, Sr. #101135747 but it has all his wedding information under the photo, which is not in his bio section.

My opinion, let's allow these photos to remain and in the future, I promise to be more careful. In Clara's case, I did look before posting and did not see a post since she was under the incorrect name. I apologize.

I would be thrilled to work along with you in documenting the cemetery. That is a great idea! Also, thank you for taking the time to point out which photos you feel should not be duplicate photos. Can we agree to disagree?

RE: Grave Photos
I apologize for any hurt feelings and looked into the duplicate headstone reads; "If there is already a photo of the headstone, a second similar photo should not be added unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better." Please let me know what duplicate photo is worse than the one previously posted and I will be happy to remove it right away. Regarding Clara Ferstle, I posted it correctly before ever noticing she was posted under an incorrect name. Please do not take it personal.

Re: Louis Purol photos
Hi there:

You know, I walked most of that section last year, and I somehow missed his stone. I remember the monument that is right behind it (it's not in the photo) and many of the ones around it. Maybe it was covered then by leaves. I'll make a memorial for his daughter (thanks to the great biography, I don't have to list her as an unknown, because her last name is not on the stone), but I wonder where his wife is. I didn't see her stone in the area, unless that grave was to be hers and she may be somewhere else, or perhaps remarried.

Hope you like the photos.

RE: Kate Bosack
You are welcome! However, you have a daughter, Clara linked to her that is not her daughter. Clara is Kate's sister and I have her as Clara Ferstle. You may wish to delete your entry for Clara Bosack.
