I told Mom about FindAGrave.com, and she liked the idea. It's a volunteer network of members taking pictures of stones for faraway families and genealogists. In turn, someone will gladly take pictures for you. Headstones are a key "proof" for vital statistics in family trees, but it used to be a matter of traveling back to the source. Originally, people made paper tracings of the engraving.
We were near Jasper because Mom was having a kitten spayed.
We traveled to North Florida PAWS in Jennings for the surgery. It's an out-patient thing; we dropped her off at 7:30 AM and picked her up at 5. She got her hysterectomy, rabies shot, ear mite treatment and two doses of standard vaccines (FVRCP) - they send the second dose home in a syringe - for $65. It's a non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) status, so donations are tax-deductible, should you be so inclined. Annie was so impressed that she booked her own hysterectomy there for next week.
After the drop-off, we did some graving.
With three sets of eyes, we were successful. I don't count Bossy's eyes, because they never left us.
