|Renee||requests at Woodmere|
I have been trying to get info & maps from Woodmere, but they are understaffed & unwilling to give info to an Find A Grave member.
Woodmere's policy is they can only give info to "family members."
So if you can provide grave locations for your all requests, we will do our best to fulfill any requests we can.

It is my honor to sponsor your Grandfather's memorial page. He was a fun man and nice Father in-law to me. Please add any photos you would like to his page. My parents are at Great Lakes National Cemetery and and I try my best to get there at least once a year. I have no contact with your dad or aunt. Just had my second back surgery and don't get out to the cemeteries as much. I went to Arlington National Cemetery in 2010, and hope to go again. My best friend is at Michigan Memorial Park in Flat Rock and I have already purchased a double niche near her crypt for my husband and me. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

I was able to contact someone at the cemetery today and they verified that Maxine does not have a headstone.

I went out again today and went directly to the plot the office gave me. I could not find a tombstone. I also put a rod in the ground to see if it had sunk below the ground...there was nothing there. Sorry I could not fulfill your request. Also, Milton has no tombstone.

My pleasure! I do have a question though. Are these 'Allor's with no 'e', related to 'Allore's with an 'e'? They are right next to a friend. Thanks!
