I will gladly transfer memorials, unless I am more closely related. With the exception of my hands releasing the Spirit Dove, my photos are your photos.

I have always been drawn to old cemeteries. I read and touch headstones as my way of remembering those who have passed on.

I am forever grateful to the following FAG members:

Janie #47619161, who located numerous documents for me about my great grandmother who died in 1912 and started my family tree on, giving me an incredible jump start on my ancestral research.

Clint Black #47536687, who was instrumental in helping me learn about my Wyoming ancestors from back when Cheyenne was still a territory.

Van Bender #47533106, who brilliantly took photos of all the damaged crypts at Saint Bernard Memorial Gardens after Hurricane Katrina. Without him I would have never known where my dear friend Dianne Agnes Bird May lays peacefully after a horrific death.

Dee #48005787, who went to an incredible amount of work to locate the gravesite of Hung Anh Truong #96905085 in order to be able to photograph his headstone. Hung, a Vietnamese teenager, is considered to be one of the first hate-crime victims in Houston, TX.

Judy H #46977685 who has filled over 30 of my photo requests in Milwaukee, and has even created memorials with photos of my family that I did not realize were buried in Milwaukee, and then transferred the memorials to me. Judy's work provided me with many dates of birth and death I was not able to find on my own.

And those who have transferred memorials of my ancestors to me, filled photo requests for me, and have taken their time to help me along the way.

I have had the privilege of documenting an old forgotten Jewish cemetery in Lavaca County, Texas, that is in deplorable condition, and over 150 graves in a Historic Black cemetery in Colorado County, Texas.

You are so welcome. He was on the front page of the Courier. I know exactly where his ranch is, but did not know him.

Thank you for offering to transfer Audrie's page but I didn't know her. I sponsored her because I have a niece named Audrey and something about her just grabbed my heart. She, Willow, and her fiancÚ will now be in my heart forever. It truly is sad and tragic what happened to them.

RE: James Kidder #85995550
I have seen this material on Kindle. Frankly, I don't know how that particular statement got on that page in that particular spot. I do not remember. I appreciate your bringing it to my attention. Would you be more comfortable if I put a direct quote from the book? Let me know.
Have a wonderful day!
