I respect the sanctity of cemeteries. They are peaceful enclaves to honor not only the dead but for living beings to muster moments of clarity and solitude apart from hectic lives. Delicate breezes and the dancing of leaves over these hallowed grounds creates an abiding serenade and precious symphony for the dead. I am grateful to the many thousands of contributors who selflessly provide photographic assistance for loved ones and strangers alike. Their thoughtful renderings memorialize the departed and give comfort to the ones surviving them.

RE: Hope You Are OK! Hey, Charles: It is so good to hear from you! Thank you so very much for remembering me & sending best wishes! I hope you are doing well, also, & I hope you had some wonderful holidays filled with all things that puts a smile on your face & joy in your heart! I have not been doing as much here at Find A Grave as I use to a couple years ago, but I have started back lately visiting more frequently than I was. I still think of you'all often & miss my visiting & staying in touch like I use to be able to do. Since 2010 things have been somewhat a little bit crazy around here & I have had to cut out a lot of my leisure or 'me time' if you know what I mean. Thanks again for your message.....it is always a pleasure to hear from you; so please stay in touch! Hugs & God Bless. Connie Jean
I found it! I found Modie's marker! Hi Charles. I went there again today to take photos in a plot that is close to Holly Plot. So, I thought I would take another look. This time, I walked the length of the row starting at 223 and heading north, and there it was, in lot 228, rather than 223. I guess I wrote down the wrong number.
I almost did a happy dance next to his grave. And just think, if you had not told me about the addition of the portrait photo of Modie, I would never have been inspired to go back out and have another look.
Be sure to tell Renee, that there are now photos of the real location of Modie's grave.
Take care, Charles. It's been fun doing this for you. -Bonnie aka "Honey" ;)
RE: Modie Well, Charles, I was out there yesterday and went straight to lot 223 where Modie is supposed to be. No luck finding him. There were at least 2 spots in that lot that appeared to be unmarked. I have a feeling that his marker has been covered over by sod, over the years. This has happened to me on many occasions here in Inglewood. The grounds appear to be well taken care of, but occasionally this happens. I had one pair of stones over in the Magnolia Plot that were buried 5 or 6 inches down. The groundskeepers uncovered them for me, and I was able to go back and get photos. Maybe that is what has to be done in Modie's case. You know, I bet you think I'm being anal about this, but I am not going to give up. Especially since his sister knows there is a stone there, and you've added that adorable photo of him to his memorial. I want his memorial to be complete, no matter what it takes. I'll keep you apprised of my endeavor! Best Regards, Bonnie
