Correcting a ‘grave’ situation

By JOE GONZALES

 

Most people who are retired, spend their days relaxing and enjoying their time off. Whether it be traveling, watching television, doing yard work or just spending time with their family. They enjoy their retirement somehow. But, Steve McAnelly, a 74- year-old Air Force retiree from Portales, N.M., enjoys spending his extra time walking rows at cemeteries. McAnelly devotes much of his time taking photos of markers at cemeteries, and posting them online at Findagrave.com.

This site allows people to find the graves of ancestors, create virtual memorials or add photos, virtual flowers or a note to a loved one’s memorial. But, as you will soon know, McAnelly puts a lot of work and pride into what he does. He also does this while not getting paid a penny for it.
