In Remembrance, Grover D. Wigley
Thank you for fulfilling my photo requests of the marker stones of Grover D. and Ruth Holt Wigley and for visiting thier gravesites. My family had thought of and spoken of this family many times over the years. I recently found a sympathy, thank you card for Mr. Wigley that had been sent to our family, so this led to the recent search of the resting place for Mr. and Mrs. Wigley and then you helped complete all, by providing the photos for the memorial pages here at Find A Grave in thier remembrance and as of, a very nice family. I very much appreciate your efforts put forth in doing so, Mr. Bill Foster! The photos are very nice!
