Hey Lisa,

Thank you for the wonderful obit on this man. I also wanted to acknowledge and thank you for all the work you have done at and for Grandview. I have been there twice in the late 60's with an elderly neighbor to visit her mother. I was in my teens. That is what got me interested in wandering cemeteries and reading the sentiments people place on headstones. I see you name, often, at many of the cemeteries I photograph and see how dedicated you are. Respectfully, James Mason
PS: I think we met once at Forest Lawn with Jayne?

Jack Stephan
Hi Lisa. Nice job with Jack Stephan's memorial. I was at IPC yesterday and got a current photo of his name plate with death date on it, but I can't add it because the 5 photo limit is met. Would you want to remove the one that doesn't have the final date on it so I can add it?

I saw some Burks above the Stephan family. Relatives of yours???

RE: Grand View, Burbank

Gosh, I didn't know I could get message on Find A Grave, so I just noticed your message.

Thank you so much for letting me know the Cemetery is now open. I called them and told them how happy I was to learn that they finally were able to open again.

Again, thank you

Abigail Cross and McDill Cross are my great grand parents. I would love to have a picture of their head stones. If that could be done I would appreciate it very much.

RE: Robert V Faris
A new photo is up.
The stone has aged poorly and is almost completely indecipherable after the cross and his first name.

RE: Robert V Faris
That's great that you found him & uploaded it. Sad that it was at a flea market, isn't it ? I wonder if that's his widow and sons. Too bad it's been up for 2 years and still no family have shown up.
You should add the caption of where you found it.

Da nada. I don't know why, but some people seem to think that duplicates of memorials are a hanging offense. Go figure.

Actor Harry Glazier
Greetings Lisa,

I was looking at the Chronicling America, Historic American Newspaper on line. I read an article in the Los Angeles Herald dated December 19,1908.

Body of actor Harry Glazier Interred in Forest Lawn Cemetery Sunday services at 10:30 o'clock

There is more in the article.
I thought that since you made some memorial for the Glazier family you might like to check it out.

Robert Thetford - next round

I know I haven't checked in in awhile but as you can imagine I have still been trying to fight the good fight where this grave is concerned. Today I emailed and it's gong to the manager of the cemetery.

If you speak to Robert's sister's please tell them I have not given up!

Best regards,

Robert Thetford never ending

I have not forgotten and I have not stopped calling. Please give my sincere apologies to his sisters for the amount of time this has taken it is crazy!

But, I will not stop until I finish this or I'm forever banned from that cemetery!

Saucier Boys
Im not sure who those boys were in the Eluther Saucier photo but for sure Saucier's... the one on the right looks much like my brother Rocky (David) Son of Donald James Saucier from Michigan.

Robert Thetford - the on going saga

Just thought I should check in since I haven't. Needless to say I haven't managed to get the Valhalla guy to call me back for almost two weeks now. I will wait until this afternoon and start calling his manager. I don't know what else I can do at this point. It's sad but I will never try to do this again at this cemetery.

So very sorry, but know that not one day goes by without me thinking about Baby Robert and his sister's waiting.

First sorry for the two..empty messages. I emailed you yesterday via your Yahoo account, did you get it? This one is a follow up. I am still meeting with the Valhalla people and had hoped to get this done yesterday. I called again this afternoon and my point person had left for the day.

I may not ever try to fulfill another claim at Valhalla, which is too bad as I am so close but I will finish this one!

I left an 8 page print out of all the requests there for the manager so he can see how much people would like to have that connection still with their loved ones. All of which would need to be searched by the staff since none have locations.

Please give my apologies to Robert's sisters for this new delay.

Lisa, I am the person that claimed this photo assignment. I realize that it has lapsed and i can't re-claim it but I wanted you and Robert's sister to know that I have been to this cemetery 6 times and am still working on it. I have a Monday appt at 8:40am again. The grave is unmarked and I have had to enlist the help of the family service personal and ground crew.
Best Regards,

RE: Eluther Saucier
I'm sorry I have no idea who the boys are. I Know that Eluther died young and unmarried so don't believe they are his boys. Perhaps nephews? Thanks for the photo.
