Hi Martha,

The reason I am contacting you is because one of the memorials you manage, Mary Tunnison # 65577900, is the memorial for my great-great grandmother. It would be greatly appreciated if you could pass over ownership to me of this memorial.

Thank You.

Hi Martha
I'm looking at William Schneider 42152906, you are credited with the entry. He was my great grandfather, died before I was born, but are you connected to him?

Is there any way to get the caretaker to make new markers for those broken tomb stones? I know there are grants, etc.

Thank you so much for the transfer of my great grandmother to me. And especially for creating her memorial so far away it means so much.
