Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Thank you for your kind words. I know exactly what you mean about childhood and memories. We grew up not far from each other. I lived on Atkinson between 154th and 156th Streets in the southernmost end of Gardena. My brother and I spent many fun days at the local parks, and riding our bikes with friends. Everything seemed so much more calm and easy then. At least in our corner of the world. I also remember seeing visions of Vietnam every night on the news.

Well, take care. Pop in now and then, and let me know if you need anything at Inglewood.

Best regards,

You're welcome. And please call me B.J., I'm not a "mr."

If you should ever need anything else at Inglewood, I'm still there every week.

Take care,

Hi Charles. Are you still active on this site? I was working on some photos in the same area where young Elmo Bertschi is buried and I checked out his Find A Grave memorial again. Could you change his biography to take out the reference that his grave is unmarked? I remember how glad I was when I discovered that he actually is not buried next to his brother but is down the row a little way.

Hope you are well.

We might be related?
Hi Charles,
My name is Marie McPartland Oehler. I saw your name in the findagrave for Anna Meehan McPartland and I was wondering if we might be related.

My grandfather was James Joseph McPartland of Roscommon, Ireland. His father was William. I have found several cousins/2nd cousins while doing the McPartland family tree.

Can you tell me about your line? I look forward to hearing from you!

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 is always a pleasure to hear from you; so please stay in touch!
Hugs & God Bless.
Connie Jean
