Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found while doing geneology research. It's one of the biggest assets in my research. I wanted to be able to give back and decided to become a findagrave member.

I believe that memorials should belong to family members whenever possible, as family have a personal interest in honoring their relatives and are better able to complete, maintain and improve memorials with additional details and research. I don't have a problem transferring a memorial no matter how distant you are as long as I'm not related.

Virgil Lora

I visited Shrine of Remembrance in Colorado Springs and photographed the location where
Virgil is interred. I have added the photo to
his memorial.

For you reference, his ashes are located in the
Columbarium of Peace, A-2

RE: James R. Crim
Yes, Larry, there was a Gibson Hospital in Edina. I don't remember when it closed, but it was in operation in 1966--a classmate of mine died from an appendix operation in March of 1966. She was allergic to the anesthetic. We were in the 8th grade. I also remember a cousin of mine being born there in Sept. 1960, she was a preemie and that was quite a historical event for the county and the hospital was equipped with an incubator, so she was a miracle--and is still very much alive and healthy today!!! I know that by the mid 70's it had been turned into a facility that was for older folks and others that were unable to live on their own, it was called the Hostel House. My maternal grandmother lived there until her death. Sorry for such a long answer, but the memories poured out.

RE: Dora Edwards
I do know the Embalmu2 has put in all of the names buried there. She used to work at this cemetery.
Unless the name is there, probably not for the hubby. Has your cemetery have any unclaimed cremains? If so, please get in touch with Missing in America Project. They are looking for any vets to be buried at the National Cemetery your state uses. I am with them here in St. Louis and working with 3 cemeteries and getting ready to bury several at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. I will help if you want me to.

Lorle McElfresh
Larry, I am so grateful to get the photo of Lorle's grave marker at Park View. She was buried in Linville first in Mausoleum. I have not yet found out why several people were taken out and buried either IN the cemetery itself or moved to another location. From the looks of the Mausoleum, I would say the lack of "upkeep" in $$ was likely a good reason of making the moves. It is sad that something that started out so well, became in such sad shape. I thank you so much for your adding the photo to her Memorial at Park View. You do a LOT of great work and it IS appreciated!!

Thank you so much, Larry for getting the beautiful photo of Leon's grave marker. I don't know if you ever met and or knew him, he was a "card" and he is missed so much by those of us that knew him!! Appreciate your posting the photo!!

RE: Lurena E. Rogers
You're very welcome for the photo. The office at this cemetery does not like volunteers. I have several maps of this cemetery that I received when they were helpful and that's how I find where graves are located. California has very strict laws as to giving out information. Her death certificate would tell you what cemetery she was released too, but that would cost you quite a bit of money. You could call the cemetery and ask for a counselor and see if you could pretend to be a relative and verify she is actually there. I also have emailed them sometimes asking for plot information. You try explaining your problem in an email again as a relative, and have them verify that her body is actually buried in the cemetery. Hope this is helpful to you. Chris
