I came across Mr. Nicholson's obituary. I know some contributors do not use them, but I wanted you to have it in case you wish to use it as his Bio.

Thomas Frank Nicholson passed away on Saturday, May 7, 2016, at the age of 50. He was born on December 18, 1965, in Houston, Texas, to Frank Martindale Nicholson and Gayle M. Thomas Nicholson. Thomas was currently employed with Jones Lang LaSalle.

He is survived by his brother, William Nicholson of Pompano Beach, Florida; and his two sisters, Hannah Finn of Pasadena, Texas, and Rebecca Smith of Katy, Texas. He was preceded in death by his parents.

The family will hold a private memorial service at a later date.

The above memorial, for Robert M. Furnish, is cataloged with a burial location of "Cremated, Other". Please change this to Elmwood Saint Joseph Cemetery, Mason City as evidenced by the photo of his grave marker on the memorial. Thanks.

I think there is an erroneous link to Virginia as a spouse. It should be Eva.

Please remove memorial #172317095. It is a duplicate of an earlier memorial.

Recent Transfer of Arlene McDermott
Yesterday you transferred a memorial for Arlene McDermott (#142259466) to me. While I am honored that you would consider transferring management to me, I have no family connection to Arlene, despite sharing the same last name. Did you perhaps transfer it to me by mistake?
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
