Hi Craig,
Two years ago when I first became a contributor I was asked to photograph Gertrude Lempke's headstone. I was able to find her husband's but not hers. I talked to the sexton and he said there is no record of her being buried there. Her husband is in the block that is strictly for cremations. It was suggested to me that she may have been cremated but as of yet be laid to rest next to her husband. Was wondering if you would mind adding a note to her memorial saying something like that?

Thanks again, Alice

Hi Craig,
You entered a memorial for Orville Stewart Pirsig in Mt Carmel Cemetery, Manistee, MI, I believe by photos that I have been taking at Trinity Cemetery Manistee, MI that he is actually buried there instead.
Thank you for all your hard work entering memorials.

Hi Craig,
I was adding headstone pictures to memorials in Trinity Cemetery, Manistee, MI and fond that you accidentally made a duplicate memorial for Alfred H Stredicke.

PS: The only headstone I found in the cemetery with the last name of Stredicke only said "Grandma & Grandpa Stredicke on it. Do know if it is for Alfred and Genevieve?

Hi Craig,
Thank you for all your hard work with F.A.G.!! Isn't it an amazing hobby!!? I absolutely love it! Anyway, my question is do you know if the Burt Breece that is buried in Oak Grove cemetery was the 2nd husband of Anna Breece buried in Trinity Cemetery? I don't want to link them together without knowing for sure.
Thanks, Alice

Lavera Dinkel

Thank you for adding the lovely photo of my step sister Lavera Dinkel to her sight. It must have been her high school graduation picture. She was killed while driving her car as 3 teenagers crossed the center line and hit her car head on near Manistee in 1972. She left a husband and 3 young sons. The addition of a picture of the person's face really makes a grave marker have "life". Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness and kindness.

Hello Craig,
I just wanted to offer a correction for the parental information for Anne C. Bonner in Mt. Carmel Cemetery. Her parents were Patrick and Mary (McCarthy) Kilty not Kelly.
Thank you for your work.

RE: Stanley Romanowski
That is so odd! I have accepted your edit but made a note that the years are different.

Thank you for all of the hard work that you have put into Holy Cross and the memorials! You have no idea how much it has helped.
