The memorial you did for Tom is wonderful. I contributed a grave photo and I also sponsored it.
Tom was a good friend of mine. I wonder, since only his sister remains, if you would consider transferring his memorial to me. ( I would, of course, transfer it to a family member if requested.)

I posted two pictures on his memorial of his grave and the pencil etching that someone did at the Vietnam wall in D.C. ... I didn't know if you wanted the pictures ordered differently ... with the grave photo showing on the actual page ... or the etching on the front of the memorial. Let me know how you would like them arranged ... or if the way that they are now done is fine. That is a wonderful memorial. You have done a great job. I am not a family member, just someone who has been taking pictures in cemeteries. Thank you ... and Dennis for bravely serving our country. God bless ...

|Sue Seeterlin Rice||Thank You|
I have came across your memorials and remembrances many times in my work on the 236 Oakland County,Michigan KIA's from Vietnam. Thank you for your dedication to remembering these young men who gave ALL. Please feel free to view my virtual cemetery for the Oakland county me, and the 1-8 Jumping Mustangs for which my husband served.

You made a very nice memorial for Royce Wilson, so I thought you would like to know I posted his obituary at Find A Grave Memorial# 134849392.

Thank you for posting the photo on the excellent memorial for Lance Cpl Steven M. Henry (1946-1967).
Steve was my cousin. When I was little, he taught me how to make paper airplanes. I'm also glad there are now links to his parents on the memorial.
Thanks again and best wishes,

Victor: Per your request I added photo of LCpl Smith's memorial. As info, I had no problem with original photo displaying on Find A Grave. Thanks for you work with Find A Grave, especially your dedication to fallen veterans.

I've only photographed 5,000 Mil stones, shoudda figured that one out.
I posted a new photo for Paul David Myers, 70044869. So...What do you think "NCM" on the stone means.
