We are still going strong after almost 13 years.  After all this time, we are family.

I bet you get the same look!

I knew this was the truth!

And I bet most of the loyal Tombstoners (you know who you are!) feel the same.

An Eagle Scout Honor

Last night was Eagle Scout Honor Court for Ryan Shupe. Ryan had contacted me during the summer asking about a cemetery project for his Eagle project. He rewalked the San Ysidro Camposanto and prepared all the information for upload to my website. He is a special, shy young man and it was an honor to be able to watch him get this award. There were letters to him from our congressmen as well as one from President Obama.

On the Road Again

Once again we are off to Arizona.  I was determined to find the Rehoboth cemetery this time!  We (somehow) missed it 3 weeks ago.  WE GOT IT this time.

Rehoboth Cemetery (if you look carefully, you can see I-40 traffic in the background)

And we found Thoreau Cemetery

These two cemeteries look so much alike - they are all dirt and tumbleweeds.  They appear all but abandoned, but both have current burials.

Back to familiar grounds

We took a trip to Arizona and couldn't resist stopping at two cemeteries we haven't been to since 2004.  Not much has changed, thankfully, other than a few new graves.

Our website

To see how our New Mexico Tombstone Transcription cemetery listings are progressing, click on the link below.  Charles Barnum, in Nevada, has been our webmaster and he is doing a fantastic job of putting the lists up and keeping all the different links straight.  I think it looks MARVELOUS!
