We recently went to the Fashing Cemetery to fulfill a photo request. We took a photo of Ms Kowald's headstone. We would love to send it to you since we can not post it to her memorial. You are only allowed to post 5 photos unless the memorial is sponsored. Please let me know if you would like to have this photo. Have a blessed day.

Hi Vanessa, I just visited Belle, and I remember I've visited her before. I just wanted to say that we had at least 4 pet rats when our sons were growing up. They are very nice pets. I'm sorry you lost your pet. They are all special.

RE: Thank you!
You're most welcome, dear Vanessa. I'm so sorry for the loss of Belle. Every little soul that we lose touches our heart and lives on in the next one we adopt. Your tribute to her is lovely. I'm most honored to have been one of the ones who visited her. Fondly, Suse

Hello, again. I am updating my Find A Grave files. I have markers for Alex and Glenn. The free memorial has all the pics I can upload. You are limited to 5. Let me know what you would like me to do. I am thinking about going out to Fashing this week.

Have a great day.

Thank you for sending me a SAC. It was much clearer and I've made the links you requested to her parents.

The pictures on the memorial were not put on there by me so I'm unable to remove them. The only way you can add more pictures now would be to sponsor the memorial which would be a one time fee of $5. Sorry I'm unable to help you more.

Hi Vanessa,

You posted the below PM to my profile page.

"Hello Ruth!
My name is Vanessa I'm the great great granddaughter of Jacob A Blaise Sr. I was hoping you could add my great grandmother's sister to his page as his child. If you could I would greatly appreciate it, I'm trying to connect all of my family's pages. Let me know if you can, his memorial number is #56624130."

I checked the memorial using the number you provided; however, it isn't a memorial I created. It was created by Frank Pennington and transferred to you to maintain. I have no idea how my name became connected with this memorial.

I'm so sorry that I can't help you with this.
