Ja mes and Bama
I will be happy to transfer James and Bama Fike to you, if you want. I spent hours adding memorials to the Ryan cemetery and am really pleased to have someone notice one of my additions.

ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

I could not help but notice that you are a Unitarian. I wonder if you could clarify a point, I was told that Unitarians consider that an act ( say murder ) does not constitute an entire waste so long as someone got something out of it.So in a crime where someone was murdered as a result of desire the crime would be mitigated by the murderer having obtained something from the act.This relates particularly to a tribute left to Robert Piest a boy in the US who was murdered 34 years ago by John Wayne Gacy. One of his tributes put forward this 'theory' he was a Unitarian. Is it true and if it is could you explain it to me.
