|Love Always, Renee||Vincent Sabalausky|
Hi Jim, my husband and I were at Great Lakes Nation Cemetery today. My parents are there. I tried to do your photo request for Vincent, but found out that he does not have a headstone. I took photos of your Grandparent's graves with the Christmas wreaths. The cemetery will be removing the wreaths next weekend. It is very beautiful there with all the wreaths. This spring, I may be able to do some of your other photo requests. Take care and best wishes always.

Thanks so much for your generous donation of time when creating & maintaining these memorials.
I hope Your Holidays are happy, comfortable & safe.

Hi Jim, I hope you have a blessed Christmas. I never hear from Nancy any more, and Phil never liked me very much. Best wishes to you and I will say a special prayer for you to have peace in your heart and joy in your life.
I posted a photo of his Niche that is currently unmarked. James
|Zelda||RE: Millard Johnson and Mrs. Jeanette Bujel|
Mr. Johnson's photo has been added.
There's only a few weeks left in stone placement in the cemeteries so Mrs. Jeanette Bujel may not get a stone until next spring.
Her grave is close to some family and friends, so I'll try and keep an eye on things.

I fulfilled your request for Mrs. Mary Johnson at St. Hedwig Cemetery in Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
Next to her stone was the following:
Millard R. Johnson
SHSN US NAVY
May 28, 1940 June 26, 2013
If you start his memorial, I can add his photo.
Please, let me know how you'd like to proceed.

As you've noticed, Mr. and Mrs. Ledford do not have stones in place (sincere apologies for this delayed response).
Mrs. Virginia Piotrowski's stone was in place and her memorial has been updated.
|Pat Kaszubowski - Thomas||RE: Monica Misiak - Wyroba|
Can't find her parents burial information anywhere.
That's why I wondered if you would be willing to copy and paste the information to her memorial.
Thank you for asking. If I find them I will make an edit for parents.
Thank you Pat
|Patricia Ibbotson||RE: Anthony Assenmacher|
Anthony is his name and the grave marker is wrong on the spelling of his name and also his date of death. If you check Family Search you will see it listed under the spelling Ossenmaoohie with the date of death as 29 Jan 1922 in Bad Axe. The newspaper death notice is correct.
|SourPersimmon||RE: Josephine Osmialowski|
Memorial complete. Sincerely appreciate all your help w/ these memorials.
A genuine pleasure "doing business" w/ you. It's refreshing to have F-A-G members, like yourself, that appreciate the gravity of this site. The grounds w/in the cemetery walls are consecrated and it behooves everyone @ this site to recognize that; this isn't a "numbers game".
Additionally, have encountered numerous memorials flowered by you; quite an impressive and admirable library of "holy cards". Family members happening upon this site, will be genuinely touched by your respect and dignity of their loved ones. You're to be commended.
