I have just now started as a member of this site. Please transfer Thomas Root's memorial to me. I am his brother and would like to maintain his site. I am in the processes in adding our parents and another brother. I would surely appreciate your help. Thank you.

|Wes T.||EDITS Cedar Tree Cemetery OK|
In case you were wondering, the source on those edits I have put in (mainly plot numbers) -- is the book "Our People And Where They Rest: A Visit to 104 Old Cemeteries in Eastern Oklahoma," James W. Tyner, Maxine Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, American Indian Institute, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. 1970-1985, (Library of Congress No. QE99-C5-T97) There wasn't a place for me to put that in the edit form.
Thanks for all your help! Best wishes.

Sorry, I must have had too much coffee this morning. I am NOT trying to get my photo count up.
|Merf||Paul Holloway, Greenwood|
Just returned from getting his photo. Couldn't find it yesterday because the plot section on the memorial was incorrect. He is actually in section 10 instead of section 8. I've fixed that on the memorial. I'm a data manager for Greenwood, so I can make certain edits.
Photo will be up in a few minutes!

THANK you for the bio information for Michael. He is one of the 13 who died from Pocatello, Idaho. I added their memorials and they are listed on my virtual cemetery. Two of them, Ronald Mottishaw and Grant Clark graduated from our class of 1963. We held our 50th class reunion in September and they were honored.
|Jim Craig||Michael Hanson|
I photographed the grave of Michael Hanson at Memorial Park Cemetery and uploaded the photos to Find a Grave. Thank you for all you do to keep these memories alive.
|James L. Cook||Donnie Dwight Presley|
I made the requested changes. I grew up in the same neighberhood with Donnie. Even though he was a few years older than me, we were knew each other. I was only one month from 15, I remember the day his death was announced at school. And his funeral. He buried head to toe with LCpl Robert Peterson another friend of mine.
Sir I thank you for your service to our country, that gives us our freedoms we so cherish.
My God continue to bless your days and keep you safe.
|Melissa Copeland||LCpl Timothy Lawrence Gilson|
I want to thank you for for making such a great memorial for my uncle Timmy. I would be honored to manage his memorial if you ever need to transfer it.
