Sandra K Hoernke
Iím hoping you can help me. You created a Find A Grave memorial for Sandra K Hoernke or at least that is where I found your name. Sandy was a good friend of mine and was shocked to find out that she had died January of 2013. For me it is as if she died last Wednesday. I donít want to attempt contacting any of the family as I donít want to open old wounds. It would help me to get my head around this if I knew the answers to a few questions. How did she die? Did she suffer? How are her son and daughter doing? The answers would lessen the sock and pain but would give me some understanding of what happened. If anyone can help me you can contact me at

Tobias Moser, #53309524
Hi,If you are not a descendant of Tobias Moser would you please transfer management of his memorial to me. He was my great, great, great, great-grandfather through my paternal grandmother. If you a descendant, I would also be interested in knowing which branch you descend from.

Thank you for your consideration of this request and I look forward to hearing from you.

Wilbur Degen
Hi, Deborah! You had so much good information about Wilbur's wife Olene Degen. She was one of my mother's sisters. Are you a relative, too? I wondered if you had such good information about Wilbur, too? And the gal who added his memorial is transferring it to me--but I'd gladly sign it over to you if you want.

Best regards,

Ron Pagano
Hopewell Cementery
Hello my name is Ron Pagano, and I am trying to find information about Hopewell Cemetery and the Duble Family. I see you created or sponsored the page for Michael Dubell, who is in and unmarked grave. My question is how did you find out this information? Is there any one who has records for this cemetery? I can't find anyone who knows anything about its management. Any info you can give my would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
