    Default FindAGrave entry for Ueshiba - Need a new grave-manager

    Greetings!
    A few years ago I took over the responsibility for Ueshiba Morihei Sensei's grave-site online on "FindAGrave" dot com. I did this as a sign of respect for O-Sensei as I used to train Aikido.

    But now I feel I may not be the best person to expand and maintain the entry in question. So therefore I am asking anyone here, who is a registered member of FindAGrave dot com, to take over the "stewardship" of O-Sensei's grave online.

    If you are willing then please PM me and I'll transfer the management of the FindAGrave entry to you.

    All the best!

    There has been no replies on the subject. Allright, fair enough. I will do my best to maintain the memorial and possibly expand it somewhat (though not by much). I'm not gonna turn it into a flamboyant egotistical version of a memorial, but maybe just a bit more info on the man and his legacy.

    Did you ask over on AikiWeb.com? May have better luck there.

    I found FindaGrave.com and searched for Ueshiba, but could not find it. Is it in a special part of the website, not available to everyone?

    Ah yes thats the one!

    As you can see there isn't much info on the page. I still haven't been able to gain access to aikiweb forums in order to ask for a proper guardian of the page in question. Apparently there is some sort of hardware problems as of right now.

    Mr. Goldsbury: I'm willing to give you the control of the Find-a-grave post if you are willing to accept it. All you have to do is register an account at the site and I'll transfer control over to you.

    I do not think anyone else will be as perfect for the position of "guardian" than you, sir!

    Hello Mr Hall,

    Happy New Year!

    I attempted to access the site because I am a moderator here. AikiWeb at present has hardware issues, but should be back online before too long. I suggest you ask there first.

    In that case I'll ask at the website once I get the confirmation email

    Happy new year to you too!
