Quoting another FAG contributor and agreeing.
"I think it is a real shame what FindAGrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers and enter the memorial first!! What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them".
Or a game of getting back at others, as well, instead of trying to work with one another, you chose to work against each other. If only we could all start from scratch and just get along think how wonderful this site would be?

|Pat Simmons||Thank You|
Today while strolling through Mt. Olivet Cemetery (virtually, of course), I made my way to your contributor page. I want to thank you for your comments on the findagrave "competition" as that's been making me crazy for years. I'm extremely particular about the memorials of my loved ones and try to update them and add flowers regularly. Often times I find they've been duplicated and my requests for transfers or merges go without even a reply of any kind. Oh well! It is what it is, but again thank you for stating what it is. :) THANKS! Pat
|Pam Witherow||RE: Clifton E. Woodward|
Thank you so much for the transfer of my cousin Clifton, unexpected, but VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!! Clifton introduced me to my "first love"--the Ford Mustang. He worked for Ford Motor Company and drove a Mustang convertible home one weekend. He took us giddy teenage cousins for a ride in it--I was hooked!! I still own one today!! Again, THANK YOU!!!!

If I had a penny for every mistake I have made on here, I could purchase some of your swamp land.
I have some flat land here in the mountains of Va if you wish to purchase ;)
"Sorry my mistake, probably the first one in my life, and if you believe that I have so swamp land in Arizona.....etc....."
|Rose Wenstrom||Daniel Stenner|
Hello! Thank you for the information, I've added it, and also his obituary that I found in our local paper. I don't think Daniel has a headstone. I'll double check on it, maybe I missed it. Do you know, if he has no headstone, can the local American Legion or the cemetery order one for him, since he's a veteran?
Thank you for all your work on Find A Grave! Rose
|NLColes||RE: Euless Grant Eldridge|
I saw you requested Grant's dad's stone. They are buried in the same section. I looked for his dad's gravestone and I believe it's unmarked. I'll verify it this weekend. Thanks.

You're very welcome, glad to do it for you.
|Chuck McKinley||Stenner in Memorial Park, KCMO|
There were six more Stenner all right there together if you want them, seeing how you are working on the family history.

|Tess Beshara||Flower left for James Hannibal Simons 27294112|
My name is Tess Beshara and I looked at your bio from the posting you made for James. I agree with your thoughts. I have been researching the Yager, Quick, and Simons and as you know that becomes so many more. I was wondering if you were related to James Hannibal Simons? Our line is from the Edward Yager's marriage to his second wife Sallie Ann Smith. The James Hannibal Simons is descended from one of the children of Edward Yager's first marriage to Mary Adalaid Green. I have lots of sourced information for the children of both marriages.
