Thank you so much for the transfer. I really appreciate it.
|Mary Ann Loss||James Cofield|
Hi there, Would you kindly consider deleting a photo that you added to #3273063? It's the wrong Cofield. I've also asked Find A Grave to do the same and am sending this note to cover all bases. Thanks so much, Mary Ann

Hello Matthew & Chrissy!
Thank you so much for the work you do on FindAGrave, most especially with Military memorials.
I was contacted, today, and was informed that there was another memorial created for my cousin, Cynthia Inez Brown Skidmore. At the time I created her memorial, I did not know where her remains/cremains were placed, as it was not mentioned in the obit. I had also created memorials, in the same matter, burial location unknown, for her husband, the Col. Lloyd James Skidmore Jr, and their son, Lloyd James Skidmore III.
I would like to request, and hope you will oblige, that you add the photos from the memorials you created to the ones I created and allow me to continue to maintain the original memorials and remove the ones you created. I would so appreciate it.
Cynthia Inez Brown Skidmore - 138855673
Col. Lloyd James Skidmore Jr - 138855408
Lloyd James Skidmore III - 138854958
Thank you for your kind consideration.

Many thanks!! You are fast!
If possible and appropriate, remove the actual obituary and just leave the summary. I sent the actual obituary only for your information. If you want, just delete everything below...."July 20, 2002"

I went to the cemetery today and found Roman's family plot. I was pleased to find a headstone for Roman. Although it's not a military marker, it does note his military service. Just wanted to let you know that the photos are posted. I may send you some edit requests for him.
PS Thanks for taking a look at the information for Alban W Purcell. In addition to feeling that our veterans should be paid special attention to, I thought his information was particularly interesting as he seemed to have many different facets to his life. Did you happen to see that one of the actors he was in a supporting role to was John Wilkes Booth? Ironic. Yes, could be another one, but ... And, no, that's NOT why I referred you to the article. I just happened to notice it while I was reading after I clipped.
