Note: I do not post obits on memorials I manage- period! If a memorial is transferred to me and it already has an obit, it is left on, as I try only to add to a transferred memorial.
Regarding transfers: I believe that relatives and friends should have any memorials I maintain transferred to them, regardless of what the guidelines are. Of course if I am a closer relative, the memorial will not be transferred. If I am a more close friend, it will not be transferred. If the memorial is of a close friend of mine, and the requester is a distant relative, I might not transfer. Please, please use the edit tab on the memorial you wish transferred to you. Also, I may ask for some proof of any claims of your relationship or friendship. You'll never know if I will transfer a memorial unless you ask.
arrena i am on a mission LOL. i will give it my best shot. i finally found her neice, also arrena that went by rena and straightened that out. i will keep looking. i believe they have mixed these 2 up and maybe mixed her up with someone else.. its just going to take time to sort it out. why dont you go ahead and make a memo for her with an unkown burial that we can link from. maybe that will bring out some relatives that have info. let me know when you do. its only fair that you have the memo. ill let you know what i find. holly
Cosby Nelson Not sure if you will get the note I sent via the Edit system on this. I declined the change to Cosby Bryant Nelson because his stone shows B. Cosby Nelson. So I changed it to Bryant Cosby Nelson. My family is from this area so I know they often interchanged their first and middle names and it can be hard to tell what is what.
If you really want it changed, let me know a source or sources that show Cosby as his first name and Bryant as his middle and I will take a look at it.
