I am retired. Enjoy baseball (Atlanta Braves) and many other hobbies. I believe Find A is a wonderful idea and hopefully more people will help identify a lot of the ones that have passed before us. I especially enjoy following some of the older graves especially those who fought in the civil war and have photos. This is so interesting to think... (read more)

The stone in my photo says it all

"This is Me"

This stone can be found in the Mentor City Cemetery, Mentor Ohio. It is part of a family plot towards the back of the cemetery. There is a main family stone and than this one. It's not the prettiest stone by far but the guy had a sense of humor. I smile everytime I see it.

PLEASE NOTE! With being able to do links now under this great new edit system, PLEASE put ALL of the memorial numbers into ONE EDIT.

Hello. I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.

Michael Harrington (157,376 Memorials)
I find most of my contacts here on Find a Grave to be positive, and I do my very best to be helpful, friendly and cooperative. I do not, however, respond well to rudeness, lying or demands. If you cannot include a "Please" and a "Thank you" with your request, you will NOT receive a very high priority on my "To do" list. Please treat me as you would like... (read more)
