Bio and Links
Bio Photo "I will show you fear in a handful of dust." T.S. Eliot

We are not so much afraid of dying, as we are of no one remembering we existed at all.

We only walk this earth because of the people before us. Every name is a memory to a life, not just a branch in a tree. Sometimes all that echoes through time is a name, a date, a relationship, a headstone. But bringing those things together here is remembering the person who lived, and I am proud to be a part of this community of volunteers who spend their free time to send the message "you have not been forgotten"

Still active as of October 2014. If you have any information to add to any memorials I have created please let me know but use the EDIT- SUGGEST A CORRECTION feature. Please also use this feature when inquiring about a specific memorial, the comments section below is not helpful in directing me with a link to see what you are talking about.

PROCESSING EDITS: I know about the feature, but I don't blindly click all. Have patience, I will get to it, but I do check- I will also look for an obituary for you if its here in Oregon. So have patience, check back when you get the email, it might be worth a look.

DO YOU KNOW? Find A Grave will automatically process all untouched edits after 3 weeks. Yep. that contributor who's been ignoring your requests for years didn't just finally get with the program.

DO YOU KNOW? if you mess up a submission you can go to your own edits page, use the drop down menu to find edits you have submitted, find the edit you did and delete and redo if it hasn't been processed. Pretty Nifty if you ask me. Edits on Find A Grave are finally happening and they have fixed some of the flaws from the initial launch.

PHOTOS: I took the photo to help you! If you would like any of the photos I have taken for your own family tree, you are welcome to them. If its a family photo I added though, please contact me! I don't mind sharing, I have a public tree on that I will give you directions to for more photos (if I have them). Our ancestors should be remembered by all who want to preserve a piece of who they were. My collection is the work of many who believed in saving photos of cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents they never knew and then taking the time to share them with me. As we pass through this world, I feel better knowing my ancestors wont disappear and pictures forgotten if multiple people from all over have the key.

I can't thank you enough for posting the picture and information of my aunt. I have been searching for her gravesite for some time now and thanks to you it is found! She was the last of 12 kids of my grandfathers siblings that I have searched for. You are a treasure. Thanks so much.

I see from your message about Sherry that you are researching the Westfall family. I was hoping you might have information about her mother Mary Cedars Westfall. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

I would like a photo for the unmarked graveside of Jennie Luttrell. Plot - Garden of Lasting Life, Block 45, c, Space 4.

I am also trying to locate an obit for the same person, she was born 18 Dec 1898 and died 2 Nov 1983. Any help is appreciated.

RE: photo permission
You're very welcome, Erin. I agree with every word you said. (typed?) Before my health started failing, I drove hundreds of miles, stayed in motels and sometimes brought my family to help as I took photos of cemeteries.

At first, it was just searches for family gravesites. As digital photography improved, I was able to take hundreds of photos per trip. So whole cemeteries became the thing.

I hope you have a great day.

photo permission
Hi Erin,

You wrote:
"I was wondering if you would grant me permission to use your photographs of their headstones in my family tree? I will give you proper photo credit if you will allow this."

Photo credit was all I've ever asked for from people who use my photos. Thank you for asking.

A few minutes ago, I was denied access to a photo that I took. I was a loyal subscriber to Ancestry for over 10 years, but their prices have gotten ridiculous. Since I'm no longer a subscriber and people hijacked my photos to take credit for themselves, I'm not allowed to look at my photos there.

Best of luck to you,
