I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

Hi, Jim.
That was quick! No transfer is necessary; I'm not related - I just enjoy getting the families linked back together. Thanks.

Hello Jim,

Thanks for transferring Olive's memorial to me. I've updated her information and linked her to her mother. I'll continue to review the available information and update her memorial accordingly. Thanks again for all your help!

Kind regards,

Arthur Adams
There is no marker. Arthur was cremated on 5/30/1968. The ashes were never claimed or scattered according to cemetery records and currently reside in "permanent care" which is in their vault.

Hello - Skylawn was having technical difficulties and was unable to give me a grave location. I will try again later.

I recently started working at Hillside Cemetery and Find a Grave is helping me to learn the cemetery, and, some of the stories of people buried there.
