I was curious about the relationship between Virgil and Nils so I did some searching on ancestry.com. Seems Nils was born in Sweden on Mar 2, 1899 and came to the US on Feb 6, 1923. He and Thora appear in the 1930 US Census in Lynn, MA. May just be a coincidence with the last name.

You're welcome. Glad to help. I also added photos to Nils and Thora Beckman's memorials. They are buried a few graves away from Virgil and Carolyn.

Thanks for your picture, unfortunately I can't tell if he was a 509PIB, 82nd airborne during the WW2 . I'm pretty certain he is the hero I look after , same name, same Birth year, same state ... If one day you find his obit could you contact me ?

Thanks for taking a photo of Winfield Jackson's gravestone at the RI Veterans Cemetery. He was my husband's great uncle and I would have loved to have met him. I am amazed that you have been to the gravesites of every US President and Vice President. That is quite a feat and admirable of you to pay that respect to all the men who have achieved that high office. Thanks for being in the RI Veterans Cemetery on Memorial Day.

|Donald C. Theroux||Memory of Robert Theroux Memorial|
Thank you so much for the picture of my brother's
final resting place. His name is Robert Theroux, USA Korea, I just received your wonderful picture and will forward it to my sister-in-law, who will some day in the future join him there. I really appreciate what you and the other volunteers do for folks like me, who have moved far away from
what was our birthplace to new and different areas. I, also, had a chance to read your write-up about joining requests on requests. I thought that was what I did in my email, assuming that the person receiving the request would receive a copy of similar info as to what was contained in my request.
You see my memo requested pictures of my two brothers, both of whom are interred within the
Rhode Island Veteran's Cemetery, so that one visit would accomplish my wishes.
Mt other brother is Philip Francis Theroux, and his wife, Joan M. Theroux. Phil was a Korean War
Vet in the USAF. Born June 22nd., 1933 and died
August 22, 2005. Joan was born in 1936 and died last year. If you can please complete this for me I will be thankful to you forever. And perhaps you could explain what I might have done wrong.
Thanks. email@example.com Titusville, FL 32780.

I've resubmitted him to be added to famous grave status. Keep your fingers crossed.

|Esperer||RE: Jerry Smith|
Yeah, when I set up the memorial I requested it be a famous grave. Unfortunately I got a response back that it didn't fit the criteria, but there was no other explanation.
If you have suggestions to improve it, I'd love to resubmit it.
If I had to guess, I'd guess that they are tightening up their rules. It seems there are professional athletes that are much less worthy than Jerry who have the famous designation.

Thanks for catching that, Has been changed now, there is a grave between the two I need to go check it out again and see who that is and put it on here too I think.

Your welcome. You may also want to look at this one too, as I found it next to his grave site.

|Richard K Thompson||Presidential graves virtual cemetery|
Just a note that I happened to come across your profile page and saw your virtual cemetery listing of U.S. Presidents. It took some doing (one by one), but I thought that your idea was so nice that I created a similar virtual cemetery of my own (I gave you credit for the idea). I've visited perhaps a dozen of the presidential gravesites so have a ways to catch up to you. Good job!

Hello. I HAD to stop by because I LOVE M.A.S.H.
also. I watch the re-runs often, and the reunion show that was recorded in 2002 (?).
Oh gosh, they had a great cast! The reality,
the laughs, it was a one of a kind show.
I also noticed that you have family in Rhode Island, which is where I live. cool huh?

Camera tied to a stick! Actually, I'd tie my camera (using it's wrist strap) to one of those flower placement poles, then set the timer and hold it up to the nameplate/plaque. I got really good at it after a while!

Hi ... I am just seeing your email, 2/16/2012 ... I do not know when you sent it.
I would be most happy to transfer it over to you. Do you know how to do it?
