Thomas T. & Virginia Tomich

I noticed you have memorials on my grandparents so I thought I would provide you with some more information to add to them.

Thomas was born on October 25, 1932.
Virginia was born on November 22, 1936. She was also cremated like her husband.

Also, are you related to either of them?

You can reach me on here or at

Bradley Men
Dear Jim Ditton,
It was brought to my attention that several of the Carl D. Bradley men were duplicates of your original memorials. I am sorry for the mistake. It was not intended by any means. I did email you earlier tonight and also have transferred my duplicate memorials to you. I hope you will read the email to you and take it into consideration before you have them deleted. Thank you for your patience.
With Best Regards,

Donald McIsaac
Hi Jim,

Are you a relative of Donald McIsaac, Find A Grave Memorial# 8658848? If so, I was wondering what you might be able to share about him. I have reason to believe that he is my 3rd great grandfather.

RE: LaVerne Cook parents
Sorry, I agree with you. I think I meant to add the birth & death dates. They are on the gravestone.

I deleted the edit request.

Thank you and please accept my apologies
