You most definitely may use the picture. I do not mind, especially if they are used for family history. Also, I am not related. If you request a transfer of any of these memorials, I will send them.

|Kathleen M||RE: Earl and Geneva Ballew|
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply.... At the time I started contributing to Find A Grave I also started working on my family tree. Then life interrupted and I put both of those activities on the back burner. I am just now getting back to this. You may freely use my photos. I'm going to update my profile so that in the future anyone can use my photos without asking and waiting over a year for me to reply! Again so sorry for the delay, but thank you for asking as it has prompted me to make it easier for everyone else.
