I noticed you have Mr. Albert J Sileo buried in Calvary Woodside. It could be he was re-interned to St. Charles. If you want I could transfer his memorial to you and you can transfer your photo and data. I believe Grace may be his wife

Regards and best wishes

The photos are not identical. The photo from 2013 is from an angle and at low resolution (760 × 511 pixels). The new photo is straight on and in high resolution (1280 × 914 pixels).

Hi Gary! Thanks for the update and wonderful info on this young man and his sacrifice. I'm hoping you don't mind but I've transferred his care over to you… you have such a connection with this group and it makes good sense! Hope all is well! Thanks for all you do! Blessings, Dana

Gary, I think I added all the relatives. OK to now delete yours. If this is one of your folks I'd be glad to transfer to you.
