Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it.
In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am doing photo requests for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT THIS POLICY. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will no longer makes Edits (other than links and dates) for people who do not have their messages turned on. If I have questions, and have no way to contact you, I will not make the Edits. I do not use e-mail; please don't ask. And PLEASE, if you ask me a question, have the decency to have your messages enabled. How do you expect a response?

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of approximately 25,000 memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

Thank you, B.J., for the photos. What a nice touch to take a photo of both graves together. You have certainly “paid it forward” many times over. I hope you are rewarded in kind when it matters.

RE: Mary Louise Moore (#8211185)
Yeah, I can see how it would be difficult getting a photo of the top row. I have seen some mausoleums where they keep a small step stool on hand for easier access...maybe take a look around. Thank you for your efforts!

RE: Thanks

Sure, go ahead, I am kind of busy right now. A first cousin of mine passed away recently and I am in the process of making burial arrangements.

I saw that you took a photo of the interior of the mausoleum where she is buried. The existing photo of her name plate is very grainy and difficult to read. Any chance you could go out and take another one to replace it?

Hi B.J

In this case his wife died recently, a good friend of ours, and the headstone has been removed to add her name.
