RE: Hammons in Hillcrest Cem.
Hey, I just added Arthur W. Hammons to Hillcrest Cemetery, so go ahead and add your photos. Thank you very much for the suggestion. Oh, don't worry about the blank memo, my fingers get faster on the keys than my brain works........haha. Thanks again for everything that you do. Sincerely, Shirley Covington

RE: Harrell in Hillcrest
Thanks for the photo for the Richard Harrell Memorial. I have entered a Memorial for Rilla Harrell (133038356). Thanks for all you do on Findagrave.

I have entered Memorials for several Simmons' in the Woodland Cemetery in Kentwood. If they are related, I would be happy to transfer their memorials to you. Please have a look.

RE: Doris Wilson
Thanks Gerald. No transfer is necessary. I knew her but am not related. She was from New Jersey and knew of Frank Sinatra before he was famous. She was so funny. I remember her telling me that if it were not for his ability to sing he would have been just another skinny kid from Jersey.
