|Bio and Links|
I am a Son of the South (hometown in northeastern Florida; college educated in southwestern Missouri), career soldier (retired as a LTC in 2008 with over 29 years, and a subsequent Retiree Recall put me over 31) who was originally trained in the USMCR (M Company (-), 3/24 Marines, 4th MAR DIV, Semper Fi!) with combat in OPN Urgent Fury (Grenada), El Salvador, OPN Desert Storm (Persian Gulf War), OPN Joint Guard (Bosnia), OPN Enduring Freedom (Global War on Terror), & OPN Iraqi Freedom (Global War on Terror). I also served in OPN Noble Eagle (Global War on Terror/ USA Homeland defense), OPN Volcano (disaster relief, Armero, Columbia), and USA disaster relief during Hurricanes Hugo, Opal, Frances, and TS Alberto in Florida. I have been married since 1989 and have 1 son. I am also a retiree from the Florida Department of Corrections and worked criminal justice 29.5 years. In my youth, I attained Eagle Scout with the BSA and was a Triple Letterman (football/ wrestling/ track) in High School with my greatest achievement in athletics being amateur boxing (72-3, 55 KOs). I also served 2 years with the FFA Chapter during high school. Thanks to all of you who have visited and left flowers/ comments on my memorials, and especially those who have sponsored them.|

|Jennifer Ellis||RE: Lora Fillinger|
That is great news as I couldn't find a memorial on findagrave. I plan to make a trip to Logan soon and wanted to visit the cemetery as well as other family cemeteries. Did you create a memorial or has anyone created a memorial for her and Fred? If so can you direct me?
Thank you for the information.
|Jennifer Ellis||Lora Fillinger|
You maintain a memorial for Lora Fillinger who is the sister of my grandfather William M. "Coonie" Hager. I was wondering if you knew anything about their mother's place of burial. In the bio for Lora it states Jennie died in 1974. I have only been able to locate that she passed in 1973 in Florida. I do not know the accuracy of that information. Would you happen to know more? Are you related? I would appreciate any help. Jennie raised my mom after her mother passed away and my Papaw Coonie remarried.
