RE: New profile pic
Ah, Bernard, you're always good for a laugh!

Have you been to Hillside to do photo requests lately? There's a lot of open photo requests. I haven't been there for a couple of months. Someone put in a photo request for Al Jolson, whose memorial already has photos on it. I left a note for the requester. Seems a little strange.

RE: Love That Name
Haha! I like it! Conjures up the image of an old favorite. I had to google him to remember when Wolfman Jack died. I forgot that it had been so long ago. Time sure flies.

Thanks for sharing!

RE: IPC
I see that! That's weird because I was just on that site la couple of nights ago and it didn't look that way. The wording has definitely changed regarding the burial location look-ups: it used to say "1974 to the present" but they actually stopped adding to that part of the database a few years ago. That is, it became hit or miss; some burials were added and some were not. They revamped their own internal system a few months ago and the front desk staff were struggling with it when I would go inside for locations, but they seem to be used to it now. I keep asking them to put everything on the public website so we can just look them up ourselves, but they joke about that "we'd never get to see you, then".

Anyway, I'll check it out a little more when I get home tonight.

Thanks for letting me know! Keep in touch.

RE: IPC
No, actually, the person who designed the webpage is an Office Administrator who gives out locations to us all the time via e-mail. They are very nice and helpful to the point of going overboard sometimes. I know it says they will charge for photos, but twice now I've had them take the photo for me when the marker was an up-high niche in a dark corner of a mausoleum. They know that I am putting them on Find A Grave and I do have their permission. I have even asked them if there was a charge and they said no.

So I'm not sure why they have that on the website. It was re-designed several years ago. It was nice to have the inclusion of the maps, because when I first started, I had to go into the office every time I needed a map.

At first I thought they were nice because I am a customer of theirs, but I think they are that way to everyone.

Some of us have had to have gravestones literally unburied from up to 10 inches, and they never complain about doing it.

My Mom grew up (halfway) in Inglewood, went to Inglewood High, etc. and I have lived here and in the vicinity all of my life, so IPC is special to me. I bought my Mom a niche in the old Mausoleum and I have a crypt in Sunset Mission.

Best regards,
B.J.

RE: Claudia Walne
I just heard back from Sunset View and they tell me that Claudia McCann is buried in an unmarked grave next to her husband, in Palm 3 Section, Row 33, Grave 3. Rev. E N Walne is in Grave 4. Thank You for calling this to my attention. Bill

Claudia Walne
How extraordinary. I've met some of her descendants and sent them links to the site, and they didn't say it was in error, and perhaps they didn't know. I will hold off making changes until I can get better information. Please keep me apprised if you learn anything more, and I will do the same. I had thought to contact a California veteran's group or women's veteran group, hoping to inspire them to do something special with the daughter's unmarked grave, but I haven't done anything so far. The daughter's cremated remains are in her father's grave. It may be that Claudia's remains were likewise cremated and interred the same way. Thanks for letting me know.
