" The best way for Americans to know themselves and their history is to walk among the quiet headstones of our graveyards. See the dates and realize how young they were. Read the inscriptions. Feel the cool marble. Imagine. You can know your family that way, but you can know what America is by placing yourself among the remains of the men and now women who died to make her and to defend her."

RE: Rose Atkinson Brenda, I did already make memorials for the MacArthurs, and added photos to them. Looking forward to receiving more information.
You have not indicated your relationship to any of these persons. Ordinarily, when I work closely with someone to get photos, etc. I will transfer even if it is out of guidelines.
The original memorial for Rose Atkinson was one of 25,000 that I took over from Chris Mills when he had over 400,000 memorials and asked for help (so I volunteered to take all of his Inglewood memorials). In other words, Rose was not transferred to me because of relationship.
I will be happy to get a photo of Rosa Woodruff's marker, on my next visit.
Rose Atkinson No problem, Brenda, and thank you for the kind words. I will make sure the link is made. Also, I will put the photo on Rosa Woodruff's memorial, with a note that the photo was taken from her daughter's niche in the mausoleum. Can you identify any of the people in the other photo? It was not easy to get a photo of a photo, especially since it was taken though glass, but I thought maybe some of the people could be identified. I am wondering if any of them are Melvin and Evelyn MacArthur. Do you know the relationship of them to Rose Atkinson?
