Title: Memorial to P L Ferguson
Post by: Candice on October 22, 2019, 01:01:10 AM
Pondering how to do the sun rays around the picture.  I've played with them a bit but if you have a hint or source, my ears are open.   I haven't started on Mr. Ferguson's picture yet.  Also, I thought you'd like to see Mr. Ferguson's headstone.  I found it through Find-A-Grave, a site I use for ancestry research.

Update on the memorial.  Would you believe I found Mr. Ferguson's death certificate?

Great job Candy! Nice research too. I wonder if just a tiny blur on the type below so that it matches. I hate to say that as its nice to have clear, but think maybe it would like what is above.  :up:

I agree, Margie.  I'll see what I can do.  :) How about this?

Thank you, Mary.  I just posted a picture with just a bit less grunge.  Which one?
