Response: Flowering isn't my thing but I do leave a flower when something about the memorial touches me. Ergo, there is nothing disrespectful whatsoever. Over the years, that has added up to several thousand flower "numbers". I guess I need to stop "paying my respects" because some people see it as "collecting brownie points"...

Response: So, you agree (as the site owner pointed out) it can be used as a genealogy RESOURCE although that is not the purpose. Thank you. Unfortunately many people do not understand that.
