Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am going to add a pet peeve here. People who are only interested in numbers should at least wait a respectful time before posting a memorial to allow a family member to do just that. Posting a memorial a day prior to burial is very disrespectful of the family.
"It is said every person has three deaths.
The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.
The 2nd death is when the body is lowered into the grave,never again to be seen in the flesh.
The 3rd and final death comes much later,when all who knew that person have joined them in the afterlife,and the name, even existence of that person vanishes from knowledge."
For this reason I make myself available to do tombstone searches and take photos of same in my area. I have retired from active work and enjoy doing genealogy research on my family. I will attempt to locate and photograph any requests. I do not date nor watermark my photos. Permission is granted to use my photos for personal purposes only. Please contact me for other purposes.

creating memorials
I agree with you that it is disrespectful to create a memorial before the burial. I was going to do one for Anna a week or so later but another person made one before she was buried and I let him know how I felt about that. He is acting like a trophy hunter. Relatives should have the first chance to create a memorial.

I added the photos to Roland's memorial. I took them the day I went there, and forgot to upload his! This getting older is no fun!

Have a great day

photo request
I just wanted to thank you for the picture you had taken for Abraham Mabee. It reminds me why it's important for me to continue taking pics for others.

Thanks again
