❤ Think of all the joy you'll find when you leave the world behind and bid your cares goodbye.
-Peter Pan ❤
I create memorials to simply honor the person that has passed on. I mean to show no disrespect. Each memorial is created with compassion for the individual and their surviving loved ones.
When I visit cemeteries to take photo's, I am respectful. I do not trample over the graves, but am instead very aware of where I walk and stand. I clean and clear the marker to the best of my ability and try to clear weeds to show that someone has visited and that someone cares.
My intentions are not to violate your privacy, but to honor your loved one in a way that a family member across the county can come to visit and place flowers. I have placed many of my own family members on this site as well to be honored and visited by others, and I am thankful for each and every person that has visited their memorials and left flowers or messages of love. I also want to personally thank each and every Find A Grave contributor that took the time to create memorials and post obituaries for my family members. Without their contributions I would not have known what happened to many family members that I lost contact with when we moved out of state.
ERRORS: If I have made any errors on any of the memorials I have created, PLEASE let me know. Some of my sources are not always accurate and therefore I won't be either. I do try to cross reference when able but sometimes things still come out wrong, for this I apologize. I do not intend to pass along erroneous information. I welcome corrections, with PROOF of the edit, please.
(Also, please do not send me edit requests with the same information I already have in the memorial just because you do not like the way the layout looks...this is ridiculous and I will decline the request.)
EDIT/TRANSFER REQUESTS: I welcome transfer requests and don't have a problem transferring out of guidelines. That includes distant family members and friends/acquaintances. I would rather a memorial be with someone that knew the person rather than a complete stranger. I will not transfer any of my own family members except upon rare circumstances.
All requests need to be done via the "edit" tab within the memorial in which you are referring & you must be logged-in.
~ DEAR ANCESTOR ~
Your tombstone stands among the rest,
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care;
it is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist;
you died, and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
so long ago
Spreads out among the ones you left,
who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
The Everlasting Light
Those we love must someday pass,
beyond our present sight;
Must leave us and the world we know,
without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle,
their lovely light will shine;
To brighten up another place,
more perfect, more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven,
where they shine so warm and bright;
Our loved ones live forever more,
in Gods eternal light.
