Bio and Links
Bio Photo Member & Secretary of the Vauxhall Cemetery Committee. I have photographed all the headstones at the Vauxhall Cemetery and have catalogued those headstones and burial plots.
If I can be of any assistance in photographing any of the Southern Alberta Cemeteries please contact me and I will try to accomodate you.
If I have made any mistakes in my entires, please contact me and I will correct the errors or make transfers.

As I walk through Cemeteries I sometimes fantasize about my ancestors and those long gone, what their lives must have been like, the losses, & hardships they may have suffered, The happiness of a simple life back then. This poem says it all.

Dear Ancestor,
Your Tombstone stands among the rest,
Neglected and alone.
The name and dates are chiseled here,
On polished marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care,
Though it is too late to mourn.
You do not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh, in blood, and bone.
The place you filled so many years ago,
I wonder if you could have known,
Would spread among the ones you left
In all the seeds you've sown.
I wonder if you lived and loved?
I wonder if you ever knew?
That someday I would find you in this spot,
And come to visit you?

Weeks family headstone photo & bios
Hi Kathie,
Thank you for the great photos & obituaries for Stephen & Corintha Weeks (cousins of mine). I had tried a few years ago to get into the Cemetery but the roads in were flooded at the time.

Thank you for doing all that you are doing!

I just discovered that you recently added Walter's gravestone photo to his memorial and want to tell you how much it is appreciated! Thank you so very much! Walter was a half-brother to my grandmother.

Thomas E. Kay regestry.
When doing a name search in the Brooks cemetery, his name doesn't show but he is listed in the internment list. Can you correct this ?
Regards; Wayne Clark

RE: 127419440 Thomas Kay
Thank you so much for The work you are doing. My siblings have been trying to find where he was buried for many years and always assumed it was Brooks or Cassils. Thanks to you we have the location. I have a little more information to add to his record and will do so right away.
Thanks again; Regards Wayne.
