Thank you Jessica. I appreciate it!

Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.
Last year I fulfilled over 450 photo requests at this cemetery after the burial location was provided.
P.S. I tried to look up his burial location at the local library, but I could not find his name in the list of burials for this cemetery.
