Good Morning Deborah, I am hoping you can transfer the following memorials to me:
Joseph Anthony Karrels #70899716 and Henrietta Marie (Barzier) Karrels #70899561... they are my great grandparents and their last living child (my grandmother) just passed away on the 26th and I need to update a lot of information and add photos as well. Thank you so much for your time and efforts on Find a Grave. Thanks again! :)

RE: Merry Christmas
Christmas snow and a gravin I go. Got a short list, only uprights today to find. Have you been on the billionsgrave web site. I have a note book with divders for the sections at Woodlawn. Any headstone I don't have goes in there by year.

I can enlarge the section off the billions site, make a copy and paste it to a blank paper and draw lines to the HS. at least I can see where to start looking. Not all the HS I'm looking for are on billions. this is a place where peeps up load GPS from their phone, therefore if nobody did one, it won't be there.

Have a nice day, hope you have a very nice christmas.

Working on getting some snow here in Sioux Falls, don't ya miss it LOL.. Weather slowed me down a bit far as going out to woodlawn and getting photo's. so far I have put back in 3,400 photos/memorials I removed. That billionsgarve web site, as been helpful finding the missing HS I didn't have in my stash to replace. At least I can see on the map where they are and what they look like. Those flat ones are the worse to located.

In case you didn't know Findagrave has been updating the edits submitted on those memorials where the member has passed away and also those who have been suspended, so don't hesitate to put in a edit.

Have a great christmas, stay warm :)
