Wow you are fast. I am wondering I you are a relative. I am and had just entered the information when your showed up. If you are a relative that is great but if not would you mind deleting yours and if you not would you mind taking out her husband and children as they are still living unless you have their permission.

Thank you,

Gravestone Photo Permission
Thank you for photographing the gravestone of David Price in Middle Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery (Memorial# 117844781). I appreciate it.

Dave Price was Member #0168 of the Alford American Family Association. I would like to add this gravestone photo to his AAFA memorial:

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photo? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, HistoryBuff [or your name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,

Philip Henry Whitman

I was so glad to find you had posted my father-in-law's grave (95507855) here.

Could you replace the obituary on his memorial with the "real" one that was sent to the places where his friends lived?

It is:

Philip Henry Whitman (1918-2012)
Philip, 93, at last has joined Mary, his beloved wife of 62 years.
Philip, born in Topeka, Kansas, graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in chemical engineering shortly before World War 2.
As a Navy veteran of WW2 and Korea, he photographed the aftermath of Hiroshima and many other places while on duty overseas.
He worked for Gates Rubber Company as a sales engineer in Cuba, Hawaii, Canada and many places in the United States until he retired to Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
Six years ago, he moved to The Heritage, an independent retirement community in Brentwood, Tennessee.
Philip was a voracious bibliophile. He loved and bought unusual cars for family use, including a Studebaker and a Kaiser. He also loved to fish, produce his own wine, play cribbage, listen to opera and devour chocolate-covered peanuts.
Throughout his life he taught himself phrases in many languages so he could greet and thank people in their native tongue.
He loved animals - especially cats - most of all Irish, who went with his family to many of the places they lived in the world and in later years Lucifer, adopted from Paws and Claws in Siloam Springs in the mid-1990’s, whom he always insisted was the world’s greatest cat.
Philip was private, independent, strongly opinionated, seldom unkind but did not brook fools.
He was a man of great integrity and pride who in the end died with dignity - quietly and quickly – in his own home.
He is survived by three sons and daughters-in-law, David (Patricia), Wayne (Sarah), and Charles (Cynthia), 5 grand-children and 6 great-grandchildren.

Another interesting thing is that he and Mary his wife were cremated (so the stone in the cemetery is only a cenotaph for both.)

His side says "You won't, so I can't" - his favorite saying.

Her side says "A Class Act."
