Bio and Links
Bio Photo ****Leo is currently unable to work on his memorials. Please be patient and I will get any corrections, additions, or transfers just as soon as I can... (Annette)

If I made your day then I did my job. My main interest is the veteran memorials. They are doing a great job defending our country. They do their part. Lets do ours. We can't let them down. On a down note, many cemeteries have taken a stand on NOT releasing grave location to non-family members. So, if you have a photo request and you are able, please contact the cemeteries and get the grave location if you do not have it. I have maps of most of the cemeteries in the RGV, so my job is much easier if the location is available.

Valentina Silva's birthdate
I requested to add Valentina's birthdate because I found it in the public records, Texas, "Birth Certificates, 1903-1935".

The record states she was born in Raymondville, Willacy Co., Texas on Valentines Day, Feb 14, 1929 to Marcos Silva, 49 then, and Leocadia Castillo, 37 then.

Philip Bolger: Find A Grave Memorial# 38678899

Philip Bulger: Find A Grave Memorial# 55172074

I have a question. The markers are on the same grave (one at the head & one at the foot). Are Bolger & Bulger the same person? The death dates are different.

Hello Lionel,

Thank you very much for creating a memorial for my father. I emailed you on February 10, 2014 asking if you would transfer my father's memorial to me but neglected to include my contributor number. My father's name is Sam Webster Daily and his Find A Grave Memorial # 24564415. My name is Kathleen Daily Perez and my contributor # is 48189508.

Best Regards,
