RE: Michael Kopp
Hello, and thank you! I'm so glad you messaged me as I had some trouble with my email and the provider had to help me retrieve my email. By then it was overflowing with mostly junk! I'm still searching for your emails and those WONDERFUL photos you so generously took. Thank you so much for those. Kindest Regards, Nancy

Please contact me at There are some errors which need correcting for this memorial, which link to another that also needs some correction. I appreciate you listing these memorials and posting photos. Without people like you finding photos would be almost impossible. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thanks!

Hello Sandra,
That's great the DRT chapter is checking on the markers of past members.
Ellender was a distant relative and a descendant of the Earle family (5612050) of Waco.

Dear svanwyk,
Thank you for hanging in there with me as we determine what is right thing to do about Cousin Dick's findagrave memorial.

Let me roll this over in my brain and evaluate what seems best to do. I do not want to be a pain to anyone. I do not want findagrave to take over Cousin Dick's memorial and be under their control.

I think you have listed the only 2 options. Let me have a day to mull this over.

P.S. I promise not to "Tweet" about it------as if I knew how to.

RE: Richard Dodds
Dear svanyk,
Thank you for your reply and idea for addressing duplicate memorial problem.

Sounds good, except I know that "Jay" (Cousin Dick's wife) is carrying Dick's ashes around the country and returning them to locations where they made precious memories together. In other words, Cousin Dick ain't buried.

Any idea for addressing the above mentioned issue?

Dear svanwyk,
Thank you for your reply.

Then, will you please review Memorial# 134692179 that I created for Cousin Dick.

Would you accept his bio and his photos to the memorial that you created?
