Thank You!

I have looked for my great grandfather John Arthur Garrett, who left his family when my grandfather was 8 years old and was never heard from again, for 30 years. I finally found information on him through the genealogy website, FamilySearch. I was so excited to find him after so long! As I reviewed his death certificate, I noticed it said he was buried at the Institutional Cemetery in New Westminster, BC. I googled it and came across an article about the cemetery being turned into a park and then a garden. It gave a link to your website. Thank you for the time and effort it took to put it together and to make available the much needed help to those of us seeking to find our ancestors. All of John's children died without ever knowing what became of their father. I'm grateful to know and to find a connection of family that was once lost. Thank you!
