Hello Craig,
You made a memorial for John S Watson in Trinity Cemetery Manistee, MI a few years ago. And it is a duplicate to one that was made by Amy Murphy a few years prior to yours. Yours offers way more information than Amy's. I was wondering if the two of you could work together to make this into one memorial?
Thanks, Alice

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

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.

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.
