James M. Nov. 29, 1943 July 23, 1998   Policeman Prayer: Walk with him tonight, Dear God, Along each darkened street; Walk with him tonight, Dear God, Along his lonvely beat. Keep him happy through the night and please make sure he's warm, and guide him to a sheltering door in case there comes a storm. And let him know though he's not here, my prayers are free from fright, because, Dear God, I know so well, you're on his beat tonight.

I'll be happy to transcribe and photograph tombstones that you request as long as they're within the following counties:
Cuyahoga, Portage, Stark, Summit
I'll even consider transcribing entire cemeteries, or sections of cemeteries on a case-by-case basis. Once in awhile I may have to charge a fee, depending on how much research and how much travelling I'll need to do, but would never do so without working out the details in advance with you.
I f you wish to make a request, or have questions, email me!
