Gladys Michalak photo request.
Hi Jamie! I hope you are well. I was able to claim quite a few of your photo requests (Finally! I don't get much of a chance anymore.) Anyway, this is just to let you know that Gladys's grave is unmarked. She is located next to Wendlyn Michalak. He already had a photo on his memorial, but I've added a view of the area which shows Gladys's unmarked grave next to him. So I will be fulfilling your photo request with the same photo. Sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I'm always disappointed when there is no marker.

Best regards,

Mary Pelayo, nee Silva
Dear JAB,

Thank you for creating a memorial site for my Great-Auntie Mary! She was my father's aunt, the sister of his mother, Margaret. I knew her and loved her, and we shared a common interest--a love for genealogy. Of course, she began her fascination with ancestry long before I became interested.

My mother, Margaret, was the family historian on my side of the family. When she died in 2005, I continued her work, which has absolutely turned into a labor of love.

I would like to ask you if you would please transfer management of Mary Pelayo's memorial to me. I want to add this close family member to my virtual cemetery. As you can see, I have already sponsored her site, and I would love to go further.

Kind regards,

Back in 2010 you photographed her grave and for that I appreciate it. I do apologize for not thanking you sooner. Please keep up the good work as a photo volunteer. You are helping others by taking your valuable time to do this for us.

Thank you so much for posting Judy's obit. I was so surprised to find it. Judy was my sister-in-law, but more than that, she was my friend. As a teenager, she was my baby sitter. How my brother and I loved her. She was also a big sister to almost every kid in the neighborhood. What a special person she was.
How lucky we were to know her.
Thanks again,
Char Green Kelly

Gertrude Kloke

I noticed that you put in a listing for Gertrude Kloke. I had already listed her as well as family members. Her memorial is: 23806843

Just fyi! Thanks, Tony

I believe the correct location of birth for Mary Pearl Mason Lowrey is INDIAN TERRITORY not Indiana. The census information shows her born in Oklahoma, which at the time of her birth was Indian Territory. The actual title would be Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, which later became Leflore Co. Oklahoma.

Today I was at Rose Hills and was able to photograph Donna's headstone. Next to her was Richard so I also photographed his headstone. I will add it to his memorial or create one.
take care
