Obits of Carol Shively and margie baker
Dear Melanie, could you resend that last message to me, some how it got deleted and I can't find it. Much appreciated. I would like to add pictures if I can find them. I am going to visit cemetery this spring. Thank you so much, Craig Klucas

RE: carol shively
Yes, my friends and I knew Claudia Hevel. Margie Baker and I continued to write one another after that summer, she moved to Flagstaff for a bit. I always thought that we should have made a movie like American Graffiti for that summer. We would go swimming at Ice Harbor dam, sneak into the Prescott pool, play football at the school. On top of the comaraderie of the whole town, Waitsburg, Dayton and the area was beautiful. 2 summers ago me and my four kids came back through Lewiston, Idaho and through Waitsburg. We saw the most beautiful sunset ever. My kids had to stop to take pictures of the sun setting over the wheat fields.
As we came through Waitsburg a flood of memories took over and I had to tell my kids about how much fun we had. Craig Smith a friend of mine who worked together got a kick out of me telling about it. He wanted to know if I looked anyone up. They probably wouldn't remember me anyway. Besides, it was late. Yep, very nice girls. Bye

carol shively
Dear Melanie, I was looking up information on Carol Shively and looked up your bio, it said you went to Richland, Wash and Bemidji. What a coincidence, I grew up in Richland and spent summers in Minnesota not for far away by Hutchinson, and Wadena.
I worked the summer of 1970 with a bunch of other guys at the Green Giant cannery in Waitsburg, what a Great summer, we rented a house in town and got to know a lot of townspeople, a real warm community. There I got to know Carol Shively and Margie Baker who was also killed in the car crash. We all had a lot of fun, I also worked for a Mr. Jaquot, roguing wheat. Many, many good memories.
Those girls getting killed just broke my heart and I still think of what they could have done in the years since. I guess that's why we have to live every day to it's fullest. Neil Young is playing "Heart of Gold" (I'm growing old)
I just thought I would tell you to let you know that even when you depart early, people still have a huge impact on other people's lives and futures. I think about them from time to time and truly miss them--good friends. Love, Craig Klucas

Saw message on my E mail to delete my Find A Grave on him. No dups
allowed. So I deleted mine. Now I don'T see one at all. I didn't
know there was one. He's buried in Bejou City Cemetery, MN.
Someone said no grave headstone. Aren't Military supposed to
get on from the government?? Sorry about the dup. Tommy was
my favorite cousin, my father's sister's son. Thanks, no harm
intended. Barb McIntosh-Stott

Wanted to let you know that I just received email notification from Find A Grave letting me know that someone had fulfilled a couple of my photo requests. Don't know why they had a temporary lapse in notifying us, but I'm sure glad that they are doing it again!

Distant Cousins
Hey Melanie. Yes, it does appear that you and my husband are very distant cousins through your common ancestor, Daniel Stockton. Nice to meet you too! You mentioned something about possibly contacting Find A Grave about no longer sending notification whenever a photo request has been fulfilled. I just want to caution you to be very careful not to get them "ticked off" at you. I have read some of the comments that other F.A.G. members have posted and they warn that you should be very careful not to criticize Find A Grave Admins or call attention to yourself in a negative way. Some people say that the Admins have retaliated by deleting some of their memorials. Tread softly!

Nice to meet you too Melanie. This is actually Lloyd's daughter Cathy as Ive been managing his account for him lately and forget which one I'm one when I reply. We are happy to share information so let me know if you need anything on the Stocktons.

RE: Wow, that stinks!
Daniel Stockton was my husband's 4th great grandfather. Bless you for being a volunteer photographer. I am hoping that will eventually resume sending email notification to let us know when our photo requests have been fulfilled. As you said, that is probably why you have not received sort of acknowledgement when you have posted photos. I would like to think that most people would be grateful and thank you if they realized their photo request had been fulfilled. I do hope this doesn't discourage you from continuing your generous work as a volunteer photographer. Even if you never receive a "thank you", your photos are invaluable to folks who would, otherwise, never have the opportunity to see the final resting place of their ancestors and loved ones.

RE: Bonnie Roisland
Hi Melanioe -

Sorry for my lack of response. I suffered a couple of very personal tragedies in May of 2013 and consequently have been out of touch with many things as I have tried to deal with these losses. Never the less, if you still have the photograph for Bonnie Roisland's grave, I would sure like to have it. I will put in the request through the Find A Grave link that you provided.

Thank You for doing this and for your patience with me.

Brad Tharp

Hi . . . Thank you SOOOOOO much for the wonderful pictures! It is always so nice to see where the graves are located to the spouse and children. I appreciate your time and your thoughtfulness to volunteer!! Glad that there isn't a foot of snow in Minnesota . . . . at least not yet! We're waiting for the first snow here in Wisconsin . . . uggh!! Thanks!

RE: Lewis & Rose Hayes
I believe that I got that information from the death certificates, but I also question if that is correct. According to a transcription done in 1984 for the Prince of Peace Cemetery, the oldest stone was 1929, so it makes no sense that Lewis and Rose Hayes would be buried there. I note that I had Rose listed in both Pine Grove and Prince of Peace and that Andrew J took over Rose's memorial at Prince of Peace, and that I had Lewis listed at Prince of Peace. Sloppy work on my part, but I'll try to follow up on the two death records.
