|Bio and Links|
Single mother of two sons ~ 1 has 2 legs the other has 4. |
Spent my adult life working in customer service and as a caregiver to terminally ill friends and family. I have watched dementia and Alzheimers destroy memories that can never be recovered. It is for that reason I feel that each and every memorial should include as much information as possible. I have been told that this site is merely a database for locations of graves. And it is my opinion that if that were true we wouldn't be posting flowers & messages. We wouldn't be adding photos and bios. We would have nothing more than John Smith row 4 plot 7 Sunny Acres Cemetery.
Most of my memorials are created from grave photos. I search the site before I create the memorial. If I find that I have created a memorial and subsequently find that it is a duplicate of a BU memorial I send an Edit to the contributor advising them of the grave location and that I have a photo of the grave. If the location is added to the memorial I will post the grave photo and delete the memorial I created.
If the contributor does not respond or update the location within 30 days then I will keep my memorial and it's photo in place. As per the site guidelines the contributor is supposed to update the location within 30 days of creating it.
If I have posted a picture of a grave marker it is a picture that I have taken myself. I place no monetary value on these photos. I took the pictures to create or complete memorials and provide photo documentation of the grave site. If family or friends would like a copy of the grave site photos they are welcome to them.

|Andrew Witham||RE: Samantha Schultz|
Thank you for your message
To the best of my knowledge, there is no younger brother, and certainly was not one at the time of her passing.
She has an older maternal half-brother. During the time that I knew Samantha, which was from 1998 until her passing seven years ago, and during which time I was married to her mother's sister, I never once heard mention of a younger brother.
Perhaps Kyle was a half-brother by her father, who, in the entire time I knew Sam, I never met, nor to the best of my knowledge was he present at her funeral? I could be wrong.
In any event, the article you quote was not written by me, but by Sam's immediate family, and copied from the newspaper in which it was published at the time. You may find answers to your questions by asking family.
Sam's aunt and I separated about a year after Sam's death, since which time I have had negligible communication with my ex-wife or her sister.
Sorry that I am unable to help you - but I have no idea about what you mention, nor am I interested in being dragged in old family issues.
I now have a family of my own, and live overseas. I am, however still very fond of Sam, and choose to remember her in my own way.

Thank you for your reply and for honoring Marty with your flowers. I didn't know the family really well as my dad was in the Navy while I was growing up and we only connected a few times. I did make it to one of the kid's wedding when I was older. I remember Marty being a fun person.

You left some flowers on Marty's memorial. Are you related? She married my first cousin.

|Sonia Young Francisco||Eugene Foster|
You created memorial#113766204 for Eugene Foster which includes a photo of his headstone. A Marine's Daughter created what I believe to be a duplicate record ( Memorial# 81733799) without a photo of his headstone, but connected to his spouse and children. Perhaps you and she should communicate about the possibility of a merge?
|LadyDi_60||Re: Lottie Moody|
Thank you so much for your help. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for his headstone photo. I appreciate you taking time to do this for me.

I have a question about this memorial:
Find A Grave Memorial# 123458525
This came up in a cousin's documents on Ancestry. I see the photo of the marker has a generic message on it, but above it is the name of the baby twin girl- can you tell me about it? Is this name listed on the back? Are the parents names also on this- it looks to have Carlson names above it. I have no other children/twin listed for this couple so I'm trying to solve this family mystery. What is the reason the baby was buried this way?
Thank you so much.
