Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, and welcome to my profile page. I'm a retired USN aviator, a native of Los Angeles and a survivor of the September 11, 2001 attack on the Pentagon. I am very blessed to be living in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with my lovely lady and our beloved canine and equine children.

After more than a dozen years as a member here, I've seen my share of silly and even childish exchanges over things that have nothing to do with the purpose of this very special place. It's sad but true that I rarely come here anymore because of these issues, and I sincerely hope that this doesn't happen to anyone else. Please remember that this is a cemetery and it should be treated as such, with dignity and care.

RE: 6844701 - Tony Pastor

I just noticed a picture that you attached to bandleader, Tony Pastor's, memorial page. The woman sitting next to trumpeter, Harry James, is hotel-ballroom owner, Maria Kramer, and not vocalist, Louise Tobin. The picture was taken in 1945 and Harry and Louise were divorced at that time. He and actress, Betty Grable, were married approximately two years earlier, in 1943.

Just thought you may want to know.

Samuel T. Elrod
I gather, from your messages, that you're related to Sam Elrod, TM1, USNR. I'm related to him as well. He was the youngest child in the family, my grandmother, Mary Ellen Elrod, was the next youngest to him. It would be interesting to compare notes someday on our family history. I'm on Facebook as Richard Cunningham, and also have been working on a family tree on My email address is so drop me a note sometime.

Good day, and thank you so much for writing such a beautiful message on his grave.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but did you know him in real life?

Best Regards

If you are talking about Marci Farnsworth King, she is my sister-in-law. I married her older brother Brad. I believe she graduated HS in 1976. Gardenia High I think?

Hello Don,
It was my pleasure to transfer your grandmother. I transferred a couple more that you sponsored a few minutes ago.

Take care
