I transferred Elizabeth's memorial to you since she is part of your family.

Albert Joseph Worthing
Albert Joseph Worthing buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Omaha Nebraska is my great uncle. I have several other relatives buried there. Would there be a chance you could transfer management of that memorial to me. I have information I could add and would like to be able to link to other family members. Thank you.

Good Evening Michelle,
I saw you had a photo request for great aunt Bessie's tombstone. I am related via the Anderson/Herrick/McElhaney line. Most of them are buried here and in Connecticut I believe. Let me know if I can be of any help.

RE: ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
Thank you for Eugene Socha's name. We will add him to our list. It is not required they be on Find A Grave, just served in the military, peace or war time and be buried at Westlawn-Hillcrest.
Please let others know of this project sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge #326. The more people that know about it, the more complete our list will be. We know many that served in the military have no indication of their service on their grave.
Thanks again,
Carl and Carolyn Diamond

Thank you for letting me know about Joseph's remains being returned to the mortuary. I see that my request was removed. I'm not sure how to record the info so that I (or someone else) won't put in another request. I'd appreciate knowing if you have a tip for me on this. Thanks for your effort.

Ann :-)
