RE: Richard Tesi
Hi Debbie:
Thank-you for the transfer(s). One of the memorials I transferred to you earlier is not @ the cemetery where his obit said he was as I had put in a request for a pic of his stone to make his memorial complete & he wasn't there.

Take care & I'll be talking to ya,

P.S. Your welcome

RE: Katherine Grubl
You're welcome. This one was a tough one, but once it started rolling, everything fell into place. As long as you understand that no two people in the universe spell Grubl the same way, you'll be fine. :)

Let me know if I can be of any further help! :)

RE: Frieda Van Vorst.
I hope you are better after your stay in the hospital.

The other contributor has been accepting my edits in a pretty timely manner so that shouldn't be a problem. I know that some of your memorials have photos where his does not. You may want to be sure those stay somehow as well. You could always send an email to edit@FINDAGRAVE.COM and ask them to just merge the 2 memorials together. An easy way would be just to forward them the email I sent to you, if you like.

Take care!

Yes a man from Delaware took pics of Blades Cemetery and he e-mail me.Then sent me a pic of his grave.I went down that weekend and saw his grave. 3 hour and 152 miles to get there.But well worth the trip.No one from his family seen his grave in 71 years.

Awwww thank-you Debbie.You know me as I like to have pictures on my memorials :-)

I have a LOT that don't have pictures that I'll put requests in for so that someone else can visit BHNC & see the beauty of it :-)

I have been working on deleting the names of living family members names & place of residence etc on my memorials but oh my gosh if that isn't a very time consuming task has to be done.
I think I have most of the obit pictures deleted so I'm good there...I think (sigh)

RE: Go away Snow
Beats the heck outta me but we got close to 8" of the stuff & this morning @ 6:30a.m. it was a
whooping 16 degree's outside.Can ya believe this stuff ? Its still summer,is it not ???

We attempted to get to BHNC the other day & got hit w/a thunderstorm etc so had to postpone that trip for the time being...suppose to be back in the 70's so we'll get 'er done :-)

How are you feeling my friend ? Better I hope :-)
