Please invert the gravemarker photo, it is hard to read upside down.

Thanks for the photo marker. Sid Armstrong was an interesting person at Tabernacle ARP church. He was always well liked by all. His sister RUTH was also a favorite.

Thank you for accepting the update that I submitted. I wanted to let you know that I'm excited to have that information on his memorial. I was hoping you would consider adding his obituary that I found to his memorial's bio, since it contains such great information about his life and his family took the time to write it all out. Thank you for all the great work you do on Your work touches so many people whether or not they reach out to say thank you.
