Single mother of two sons ~ 1 has 2 legs the other has 4. |
Spent my adult life working in customer service and as a caregiver to terminally ill friends and family. I have watched dementia and Alzheimers destroy memories that can never be recovered. It is for that reason I feel that each and every memorial should include as much information as possible. I have been told that this site is merely a database for locations of graves. And it is my opinion that if that were true we wouldn't be posting flowers & messages. We wouldn't be adding photos and bios. We would have nothing more than John Smith row 4 plot 7 Sunny Acres Cemetery.
If I have posted a picture of a grave marker it is a picture that I have taken myself. I place no monetary value on these photos. I took the pictures to complete memorials and provide photo documentation of the grave site. If family or friends would like a copy of the grave site photos they are welcome to them.

Thanks so much for taking this picture. His son (My dad) is 80y.o. and will enjoy seeing it. Thanks again for all the trouble and time you took, Angela
|Angela Elkins||Ernest Thompson|
I am so sorry you went thru all that trouble and didn't find him. With the phone # you provided I was able to call and find he is in row 4, grave 49 near the canon. She said to enter thru the Fruitridge rd. entrance (there are 2 entrances) and he is in the cem. area on the rt. hand side.
She also said St. Mary's Cem. is taking over the care and maintenance of this part. I understand if you can't go there again. Thanks for trying, Angela
|Airrow||RE: Oliver Conrad Photo|
That is so cool. Only had that happen once myself, most of the time I just wander around lost even when I know where someone is supposed to be. It took me a long time just to track down this family and I still haven't found the mother. His father did not have a stone so I'm especially happy to see one for Oliver. Thank you again.

Thanks so much. Angela
|David Pike||RE: Gavin James Coyne|
Thank you, Mary. It was just a coincidence that I was working on finding graves of Squalus crewmen when I came across Mr. Coyne's memorial. I did notice it was brand new, so maybe it was just meant to be. I'll add a bio as it relates to the Squalus connection soon with some photos.
My Dad, now 90 1/2, is frail, but fairly good mentally and is still walking at least a mile a day living in southern Minnesota. When the Squalus sunk in 1939, it was raised, refit, and renamed Sailfish and did 12 war patrols in WW II. My Dad was aboard for the last 3, which included the unassisted sinking of the first Japanese aircraft carrier in WW II during 3 torpedo attacks over 12 hours in a typhoon. The boat was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for that patrol. When the Sailfish was decommissioned at the end of the war, my Dad as Yoeman, was the last crewman to leave the boat.
Thanks again for all you do!
