Sonja Marie Johnson
Hi Joe Walker,

I am particularly interested in the victims of Hillside Stranglers, but I am surprised by the information you have provided about Sonja Marie Johnson (1963-1977). You have indeed claimed that this young girl was adopted by Tony and Mary Johnson of Eagle Rock.
However, after much research, I found the identity of what appears to be her parents:

Thank you in advance for your answer.

I think it is ridiculous, even though not prohibited. I actually added the biography from a SAC because I thought it added so much to his memorial, but Bonnie added the photo a while ago and you know, we aren't required to tell the manager of a memorial when we add photos, but she took that from an online obituary. I always write to the paper and ask for permission. The local papers are really easy to contact and they always get back to me promptly. Only one time was I turned down, probably because they could not get a release from the photographer, and that is fine with me. Anyway, I don't add those kind of photos very often.

But these people who just copy photos without permission are doing wrong by Find A Grave. It reflects poorly on the management of this site.

It didn't really bother me that much; the thing that irked me was that she deleted my message without dealing with the issue, and then two weeks later, said she would do what I needed done, just send her the info. Well duh, don't delete the message! Before she deleted my message, I saw other messages to her that were similar, so it looks like she just doesn't pay attention.

How've you been lately? Have you heard from Luis Mata? We were going to plan a photo trip to Angeles Abbey but we never did. The manager is such a paranoid; he thinks we are collecting names to commit voter fraud! It takes all kinds, I guess.

Take care,

Happy anniversary of joining this site fourteen years and 2 days ago. I also see that you have contributed 1234 photos, cute number. But after looking at the # of memorials you manage, I'm wanting to send you one just to change that number. Lol.
If I can be of assistance here in Ellis County (TX) send me an email, and I'll do my best. I'm about 20 miles south of Dallas.

Take Care

Joe I was wondering why Dana Paladini isn't listed under 'accidentally in the line of duty' virtual cemetery of yours and how the DC says where the burial is, but they say no record. There was a Harry Paladini who died in 1968 in Sacramento and probably is his father. I'd check with them again. Maybe they got spelling wrong. I have added a photo for him.
