RE: Re: Wilma & Clarence Bivins
Thanks for your sweet note, Candra. I'm still kicking myself for not locating Wilma's headstone just on spec back in February. Nevertheless, this was one of the most satisfying little "aha's" I've stumbled on. Besides, the headstone itself is lovely. I'm very pleased that your family got some measure of satisfaction from the discovery. Cheers, Marina

Re: Wilma & Clarence Bivins
Hi Candra. I uploaded photos of the joint headstone for Wilma and Clarence today. With help from the wonderful ladies in the cemetery office, we discovered that the location ID for Clarence (which I attempted unsuccessfully to photograph in February) was incorrect. The reason for that is that before Wilma passed away she made arrangements for them to be interred together in a different location, but the internal records were not updated. It was a happy discovery all around, because I was able to provide not just Wilma for you, but Clarence as well - plus the cemetery was glad to know that the update hadn't been properly entered. That cemetery record update is in the works. I also have submitted the appropriate edit to the F-A-G location entry for Clarence, as well as links for them to each other. Those should update in a day or so.

RE: Clarence Bivins
BTW, did you notice there's a Wilma I Bivins in the same park, different location. Would she be of interest to you?

RE: Clarence Bivins
My pleasure, Candra. It's always disappointing, with a pang of sorrow, when there's no headstone. But El Toro Memorial Park is lovely.

Clarence Bivins
Unfortunately the gravesite for Clarence Bivins is unmarked. I was able to locate the gravesite by confirming the site numbers of the graves surrounding it. I photographed the site and its surrounding area. It's only grass where a headstone would be, but if you would like the area photo uploaded to his Find A Grave memorial page, I will be glad to do so. If not, you can withdraw your photo request so that it doesn't appear as unfulfilled. (Someone else may try to fulfill it and repeat the fruitless search.)

Thank you so much for giving of you time and effort to photograph the headstones for me. I am truly appreciative.

Thank you so very much for sending the photos of the Bivans grave. I enjoy visiting and photographing cemeteries but there was little realistic hope of ever getting to this one, and I would not have these pictures were it not for your generosity. I really appreciate the help.
