St Louis Police Officers
Well, I hate to see hard feelings when duplicates are made because of UNKNOWN BURIALS. With all do respect, I believe Timothy has done a great job with his memorials, and he has a connection that I don't believe you do. I think you should consider deleting your entries. I would think differently if you had them in the proper cemetery instead of UNKNOWN.
I did mention to him when you found out, you may ask him to delete. I also mentioned past experiences of you with COPYING photos. I specifically used the words, COPY and UPLOAD. NEVER did I say steal, or never did I tell him that I would not inform you either.
With that being said, I will delete my memorials for another memorial that's more informative and has more photos if it is a better overall memorial.
In my humble opinion, I don't think you should judge deleting a memorial by the date it was created.

St. Louis Police Officer's
Both of the indicated memorials were transferred to me from their creator. I have worked very hard over the last 6 years in researching my fellow officer's that have served before me and with me while I was an active police officer with the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department. I am now retired from that agency. I find it rather strange that the woman or person that brought these duplicates memorials to my attention today is the same person who then turned around and made you aware of my memorials and told me that you would steal information from my memorials for your original's. I have over 584 police officers from my department on F.A.G. and I'd appreciate it if you would just let things be as they are. The person that gave these 2 memorial's is very professional and it is my fault for not checking at the time of the transfers.

Thank you very much.

They are all duplicates, I've found them all and added them to my virtual cemetery for you.
I left the original memorial # on them all.
