Hi A.J., I'm hoping that this is an issue that can easily be resolved. I just found that two memorials had been merged when I went to share it on Facebook and Twitter on the anniversary of his death, which is today. As I have described in his bio, he was first buried on the island of Saipan in the Marine Cemetery there. In the early 1950s his body was moved to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific which is where his body remains. He also has a cenotaph in the family Cemetery plot in Upper Alton, Illinois which I clearly identified as a Cenotaph. There is also another cenotaph which I did not create a memorial for here, but describe in the bio. Each of the original memorials were cross-linked by hyper text in the bios for those interested. Are you not allowing even a single Cenotaph for the common man? Here is the link to the one remaining memorial:

The original physical burial memorial was at:

I had paid to sponsor both memorials. My preference is to have both. If there may be only one, it should I believe be at the place of actual burial and then I would create links in the bios of his parents in the family cemetery.

Thanks, Doc
