Virtual Cemetery Initiative
When we learn of the passing of a classmate, we are often shocked. It is a painful part of the bereavement and grieving process. Sayville alumni have relocated all over the country and world. Some who have passed on are interred in local Sayville area cemeteries. Many are interred elsewhere, Cremation and donation to medical science have further reduced the number of local interments.
Our memorial pages (which we call virtual cemeteries) serve to provide a central location to visit, share remembrances, memories, photographs, comfort one another and pay tribute to our deceased classmate in the years to come.
Our memorial pages do not exist for morbid curiosity; rather their purpose serves to bring to mind fond memories of our departed classmates; who are always loved, never forgotten and forever missed.
Our new virtual cemetery pages list all deceased class members with links to the individuals own memorial page. Where possible, we try to include a senior picture, photo of the gravestone and obituary. We also try to link to other family members memorial pages.Virtual cemeteries for most years have been generated. Some have many names, some only a few and some have no known names as this is an on-going project. At this point, we are seeking any available demographics on our deceased alumni.
This does involve time and research as the job is never done. Interested in joining the research team? Perhaps some of you would be interested in;
“adopting” the virtual cemetery for your year of graduation?
performing research i.e.. ancestry.com, newspapers.com, etc.?
