Thank you so very much the time you still devoting to our country and those who fought for freedom without thoughts of virtue or glory. You are an American to be admired by all.
Thank you for the corrections to my memorial for Joseph.
I ask you for permission to use your data for this memorial giving you credit of course. It would be so very appropriate to honor him in this way.
I have a virtual cemetery for the fallen I have encountered since I started working in central Georgia it is called 'Some gave all'.
Thank you once again, Bren

Hello Viktor,
First, my heartfelt thanks for creating my brother's memorial. I did notice that you have my mother's last name wrong. Would it be possible for you to edit it?
Instead of June I Hall, it should be June I Ball.
I'd appreciate it very much.
Thanks again for taking the time to create these memorials.

Hi, Victor!

What a beautiful write-up I found on my Brother-in-law's Memorial Page! Thank you for creating it! I admit I was a little confused because I thought I had already created a page for Lamar with a headstone picture and bio links, etc. But I couldn't find it. Hence, confusion.

I wanted to ask you, if you wouldn't mind me maintaining his page, I would love to have you transfer his Memorial Page # 133596470 to me.

And I thank you for all the work you've put into having our heroes' pages memorialized here! It really was an informative write-up you wrote on his page.
