Bio and Links
Bio Photo I could care less about the number of memorial that I create. Or that I manage.I am more concerned about recording the persons in the cemetery for all time in the internet where weather, vandalism, and time doesn't degrade a person after they have been laid to rest. I have seen many headstone worn to nothingness, broken by cowardly vandals who take "kicking a man when he's down " way too seriously! The dead in this case are known only to God, they truly become nothing more than another grain of sand!  I try to keep that from happening, as much as I am able. I freely transfer the memorial that I create, I am not stuck on 4th generation criteria. If you are related, you hold more ownership to that person than I! I just hate to have other people step on my toes to glorify their own numbers. It's the deceased that is important in establishing a memorial, not the creator of the memorial page.

RE: Susie Sonner
Mr Sonner, hi. I recently got some photos from Pifer Cemetery. The cemetery is unbelievabley in bad shape. I did get some that are really hard to make out, but it looks like they are Sonners. If you like, I can send them to you by email, and maybe you can decipher or delete. You may know who they are from a date, a letter or two in the name, etc. If interested, please send me your email

RE: Wayne & Harriet (Nelson) Turner
You are Welcome...Had some others to do, too, so thought I'd "brave" it as the sun was shining, but didn't help much & it was even noon by then.....Always visit Dad & Mom's graves there, too, and my own tombstone, so I'm there all the time ~~~~~

Thank You!!
Just want to let you know that I love your bio. I, too, get so frustrated at those who care about little more than racking up the numbers, even to the tune of getting pertinent information wrong. Or, worse yet, to make a "fake" memorial and then put a newly deceased person's name on it, even though it was created weeks before, just so they can call, "First!"

RE: Samuel Lee Sonner
You are welcome, Bruce. As you can see from the picture (which I had taken quite awhile ago...and didn't realize that I had it), it is a very worn stone. Sorry it is so difficult to read.

Happy New Year to you, as well.
