Thank you for posting the headstone picture for William H. Douden, he was a distant relative of mine. His parents were William L. Douden b. 1898 and Pearl Rosalind Erway 1903-1987.

Thank you so much for putting the picture of my uncle Frank's grave stone online. I wish my dad could have seen it. Henri-Chapelle is a beautiful and very restful looking place.
Again thank you for your courtesy and thoughtfulness.

May I use your photograph of Pfc Harold De Grasse's cross (Find a Grave #56298077) for a slide presentation honoring the men of Windsor, Vermont who gave their lives in World War II? Thank you for the time and effort you put into this work. Seeing the cross with his name makes the loss of this young man very real.

Thank you so much for the photo of my uncle's grave stone - I didn't know him but remember my dad talking about him and I believe my grandmother did manage to visit from England on one occasion. Very much appreciate it.

Thank you for posting a picture of my grandfather's grave. My mother was only able to visit her father's grave one time, and that was in the mid 80's. It is comforting to know that there is someone in Belgium who has visited his grave even after all the years that have passed since WWII. Your dedication to that means so much to us.

Thank you photographing of the headstone of Flight Lieutenant Raymond Newton, from Vancouver, Canada. No one in our family has been able to visit the grave site and it is comforting to know that it is being well cared for.

Please transfer the cross marker picture you added from #56284552 to #68738909. There is a duplicate file for William Petry and I have his parents attached to the new file #68738909. After this is done, then I can delete the older file. Thanks for your help and for providing the picture.

|Veterans Researcher||PFC Clovis C Basden|
Pfc. Basden, buried in Margarten, Limburg, Netherlands, was from Paris, Lamar County, Texas. Here in Paris, we are building a Veteran's Memorial to remember and honor those who served our country (see: Red River Valley Veterans Memorial www.rrvvm.com). We plan to have on our website a biography and a picture of the headstone of the men who served. Is it possible that you would give us permission to use the picture you have posted for this soldier on our site. We would want to use it without your tag, but would give you recognition in the portion of the webpage where we thank those who have helped on this project. Please consider joining us as we honor the men from this area....
