I became interested in Find A Grave when I was looking for information about a friend's son that died many years ago. To my surprise Find A Grave came up with his headstone. After telling my friend about this way of memorializing her son, she gave me a photograph to upload. Of course I had to become a member to add it, so I did. After browsing through the site I realized the value, added some ancestor's graves that I had wanted to see for years and requested photos. I was overjoyed when Laurie LaPage fulfilled my request. I am hoping that this tool will help me to find some missing ancestors, memorialize those that I find and allow me to help others find clues to their ancestors.

RE: Lundquist in Lakewood Cemetery I was surprised as they rest in a very expensive neighborhood. I spoke to someone later that said there are a lot they do not have stones. I'd think in this cemetery it'd be different. Happy to help.
Walter-surname Hello, Could you please put a link between the following: James C. Walter and Mary Miller Walter (husband and wife) and connector links to each of their sons: Clayton M. Walter and Carroll M. Walter.
Clayton and his parents are at Oak lawn Cemetery and Carroll in in the National Cem. in Sumter Co., both cemeteries are in Fla.
And if someone could please get a photo of where Carroll Marion Walter is at rest it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for doing a great job. And thank you for considering my request. Diamond.
Daniel Joseph Godinho gravesite DJ was a very dear friend of mine many, many years ago when we were in high school. I found out he'd passed away about a year after the fact, and I never knew where he was interred. I always wanted to visit the site to pay my respects to him. My husband encouraged me recently to do some research, and I found the name of the cemetery...and then I found this page. I don't know who you are or why you added his grave to the site, but in my eyes you are an angel. I will always be grateful to you, because now I know where my friend is and where I can go tell him the goodbye that I never got to say. I can't begin to tell you how much that means to me. Thank you.
RE: Cornelia Smith Absolutely not, we never feel like we've wasted our time searching for the final resting places of loved ones for their families. We just wish we could have had better news and picture to send. Let us know if you have any further cemeteries we could check.
