Denise Bonaventura, Spring Grove Cemetery
Hi Bob,

Thank you so much for taking pictures of Denise Bonaventura's grave at Spring Grove Cemetery and uploading them to her Find a Grave memorial!

She's a much missed part of our Air Force cadre from overseas. I live a long way from Connecticut and being able to see her headstones on her Find a Grave Memorial really makes me feel like I'm visiting her at the cemetery.

Thank you so much again!

Photo of Nora McCormick Brady grave
Hi Bob,
Thank you very much for taking the time to get the photos of Nora McCormick Brady's gravesite. I appreciate the close-up and the overall view. In fact, you helped to solve a mystery, as I can see her daughter & son-in-law's grave markers in the foreground of the overall view (more photo requests now). Very clever. Thank you, again, very much.

I cannot find the words to describe how much I appreciate these photos. Honestly when he died I never really thought I would get to see William Jr's headstone.

Thank you.

Hi Bob,
I was so surprised to read your message about the confusion with the two cemeteries. Did you see Alma Kudish's grave there? I wonder how you figured it out. And thank you. I'm so glad you did.
All the best.
