As I'm sending a number of you changes* for your pages, additions, etc., please know that I do thank you even if I don't send each of you a thank you - THANKS to you all. (*The changes I'm finding are in the "Variety Obituaries" series of books.)

* A note from Find a Grave: Tony Scott's book is highly recommended. Wonderfully detailed and accurate. I've been using it for years...and it's been updated by the author regularly!

RE: Sparling Family at Hwd Forever
Hey, Tony!

No, not relatives, just fulfilling a photo request, but wanted to offer additional pics if helpful.

Honestly, the Find A Grave community has been so helpful to me in my family history quest, I'll do just about anything to give back - seemingly just like you!

Happy to meet you.

Sparling Family at Hwd Forever
Hi there,

I just added photos of the Sparling family plot at Hollywood Forever, along with photos of their individual headstones.

Further, there was a request for a photo of "Maria Margaret" Sparling (1885-1917); I found a picture of a "Margaret M." Sparling with dates of 1886-1917, I'm guessing this is the correct person.

Finally, I have pictures of two other Sparlings buried near the family plot:

Raymond W. Sparling (1887-1956) and
Margaret Sparling Kingman (1909-1980) with her husband, Kenneth Kingman.

Please let me know if you would like these other photos as well.

You do get around! I searched and searched for Mr Curry today but all I found was a suspiciously empty spot where his marker should be. We both know what that means - either no marker or a sunken marker. I'm going to post a photo of the general area with an arrow to show the approximate spot. Hope this finds you well! Jim

Hey Tony, Long time since we connected and trust this finds you well and still graving.

I went to Rosedale for the first time today. Go figure the first 10 photos I took were already done by some guy TLS. He gets all over the place.....LOL

Just wanted to take a moment to send my best regards...James
