Headstone Photo Oakdale Cemetery

THANK YOU!! For the headstone photos of my Uncle Charles Franklin Bias Jr in Oakdale Memorial Park, Glendora, CA.

I used to live in Glendora, but now I live in Atlanta, GA.....even though I am back in CA each year, I spend all of my time visiting family members in other parts of the state. As a result I have not been there in decades. My Aunt Myrtle Bias was also buried next to Charles last year so maybe when I am out there this spring, I will have to go by and visit them both.

In the meantime, it is wonderful to see the photos of Charles headstone. THANK YOU AGAIN!

Charles F Bias Headstone Photo

Thank you so VERY much for taking the time and thought to take and post this photo. None of our family still live in the area. They are my Uncle and Aunt.

I am in GA and so without your thoughtfullness we would not have this photo.

Charles F Bias' wife, Myrtle Bias, just passed away and she has also been buried next to Charles in Oakdale Cemetery there in Glendora.

Without asking you to make a special trip, on your next visit would you check and see if Myrtle Bias has a headstone yet. If so would you take a photo for me. I have posted her information onto the site. Thank YOU, AGAIN!

Gil you are WONDERFUL
Thank you so VERY much for the recent photo you took of my Uncle Charles Franklin Bias Marker in the Oakdale Memorial Park in Glendora.

I live in Atlanta, GA and so do not have the opportunity to visit and have never seen his grave.

Uncle Charles' wife, Myrtle has Alzhimers and is in a rest home in ND where her son, Ron lives. Ron has cancer and he also could not remember the name of the cemetery where his dad is buried. After I located the cemetery by GPS I posted the tribute to my Uncle Charles so he will never be forgotten and them made the request for the photo.

You fullfilled that request in such a speedy manner and I cannot say thank you enough. I am sending the photo on to my cousin Ronnie. I am creating a family book for him now and this will be a wonderful inclusion. The book will pass to Ron's son in AL, who also has never been to his grandfather's grave. So we each and everyone thank you for your kindness!

And REALLY thank you for the MESSAGE you left on the site, what a wonderful, generous person you are, it has been my priviledge to have this contact with you!

The amazing gift we call Gil.

You wonderful, amazing, human being! Your kindness was a very pleasant surprise. It's really hard to express how great a gift it was that you allowed me to give to my best friend.

The picture was actually a gift for my Cassandra Adams. Her mother passed when she was a teenager and her father passed even sooner than that in a motorcycle accident. ( He is buried to the left of her mother )

My friend Cassi had always talked to me about her parents and that she couldn't remember what their grave markers looked like. I wanted to let her have some closure. You allowed me to do that.

She was so shocked that she cried with tears from so many emotions. When I cried with her I was thinking of you. I told her that I had help from an amazing person known only to me as "Gil". She was so grateful, as am I.

I couldn't take the credit for the gift that you allowed me to give to my friend that I care about so very much.

You asked me about the person next to her mother. It's her father and he died before she had the chance to know him.

You asked me if I wanted a picture of his marker in your message. If you get a chance someday that would be really sweet.

You dear man. Thank you, Gil.

Most sincerely,

Christine Radtke

Thank you so much Gil for the photo for John Dobash. He was one of 87 men my unit lost in Vietnam. Now he is back together with the rest of his men where he belongs. A few more to go and my work will be done. Thanks again.

Dorothy B Leonard/Addison Bohreer

Thank you so much for the pictures of Dorothy and her father's graves. I had never seen them before. I spoke with a man at the cemetery today and he is going to send me some pictures of markers that we can look at. This was a magnificant man and I can't stand the fact of him being in an unmarked grave all these years.
Thank you again for all your kind help.

Clarence Leonard
Thank you so much Gil. We were horrified to find out that my sister-in-law didn't put a tablet down for my father-in-law. We will have to change that. No wonder they all called her Greedy DeDe - makes us wonder what the heck she did with the money. How upsetting.

Were you able to take a picture of his wife Dorothy Bohreer Leonard or her father Addison Bohreer who are also buried there and I also have requests for them.

Thank you so much for trying. At least now we can rectify the problem.

I would very much appreciate a photo of her tablet. To the best of my knowledge she is still living.
