RE: Lorace Catterson
Thank you very much, that is a very nice gesture, I didn't even think to ask. He was quite a remarkable fellow, served his country well both in the public and private sector. I look forward o putting his obituary that I wrote for him online. Thanks,

RE: Richard Dodds
Dear svanwyk,
Thank you for hanging in there with me as we determine what is right thing to do about Cousin Dick's findagrave memorial.

Let me roll this over in my brain and evaluate what seems best to do. I do not want to be a pain to anyone. I do not want findagrave to take over Cousin Dick's memorial and be under their control.

I think you have listed the only 2 options. Let me have a day to mull this over.
Bonnie Shirley Amery

P.S. I promise not to "Tweet" about it------as if I knew how to.

RE: Richard Dodds
Dear svanyk,
Thank you for your reply and idea for addressing duplicate memorial problem.

Sounds good, except I know that "Jay" (Cousin Dick's wife) is carrying Dick's ashes around the country and returning them to locations where they made precious memories together. In other words, Cousin Dick ain't buried.

Any idea for addressing the above mentioned issue?

Dear svanwyk,
Thank you for your reply.

Then, will you please review Memorial# 134692179 that I created for Cousin Dick.

Would you accept his bio and his photos to the memorial that you created?

RE: David harkness
Thank you! I was planning on sending you my bio for him to ask you to post it on his memorial but got sidetracked with other things and hadn't gotten around to it. I've now removed the bio from my flowers. BTW...Harkness is also the officer seen in the well known film clip of witness Bob Edwards being escorted up to talk to Dep Chief Lumpkin in front of the TSBD, in order to tell him his story of having seen a man in the SE 6th floor window of the TSBD. (Edwards and his coworker, Roland B. Fischer had been standing on the SW corner of Elm and Houston during the motorcade and both saw the man in the window 10-15 secs before the limo turned from Main onto Houston, and both gave affidavits that day and testified to the Warren Commission.) In the film clip Edwards is famously pointing up toward the top of the TSBD and saying "That's where the man was". Officer Harkness is in front of him and to the right and is seen mostly from the back but for an instant is seen in profile. The clip is seen in many JFK assassination documentaries, so if you follow the assassination you will probably recall this clip. Thanks again svanwyk! :)
