Place in commemoration of my deceased friends  and acquaintances
Here you are welcome with me to commemorate my good - and also "bad" - friends and acquaintances and send your last words or virtual flowers to them. I can't stand the thought of them just laying forgotten in a winter cold cemetery, where nobody visits them. On these pages they will live on for us in memory, words and pictures while we together construct and formulate the content around them.

Especially I will commemorate my many murdered friends. When I had reached 22 in 1980, I stopped counting them. In several cases I know their murderers and will therefore invite these to send their own words to their victims to this memorial place to help them in the reconciliation process. 
 

A temporary farewell to Popye Jackson

For good reasons this web-site will continually be "under construction." We should not let death frighten us - there has to be room for humor also. But as webmaster or Dare you look him into the eyes?cemetery keeper it will naturally annoy me a bit if I don't get to make nice gravesites for all of you friends in time ...
.........before I myself have to kick the bucket!

Choose your tomb stone in good time
....and get the special friendship discount!
