RE: Thanks
Alec Kennedy & wife Margaret in Old Good Hope Cemetery -- I finally have taken all the headstone photos in this cemetery. I posted the ones that had outstanding requests first. I will be adding the rest within the next week or so. Welcome to findagrave and I see where you are sponsoring many. My mother was a Jones from this county but I think her Jones were not kin to yours. God bless!

Thanks again,

RE: Faye Stuckey Edwards
Jay,

Thanks for sponsoring the memorial that I created for your mother. I am transferring her memorial to you. I am glad that you were able to find her listed on Findagrave and I'm also glad that I was the creator of her memorial. She is now in your care.

Ron
