Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy genealogy, cemeteries and working on my family tree. Photographing the South Florida National Cemetery is something my family and I love to do together. I am honored to help the families of the people who served our country.

If I take a photo for you and you would like another, a different view, or a picture from anywhere else in the cemetery, please just ask!

Thank you for any edits you send me.

Please consider sponsoring a wreath at the South Florida National Cemetery (or your local cemetery) to honor a veteran. Visit

Memorial# 134481695

Thanks for the photo and memorial of my brother's grave (Memorial# 134481695)

Could you possibly turn the memorial over to me so I can link Donnie to our dad, Memorial# 18383041, so that I can add information about him and his life.

Any help is much appreciated.

Marilyn Lorman Costello FAG Memorial # 130776139
Find A Grave Memorial # 130776139
Hello, Melissa,
Thank you for photographing my husband's birthmother's marker. We live in PA and would otherwise would not have been able to see it ourselves.
Here's some information concerning Marilyn:
b: 01 NOV 1931 Wharton, Morris, New Jersey
Daughter of Cpl. George Loraine Lorman & Beulah Jane Tillyer Lorman.

Eldest of five; Charlotte Jane Lorman McKeever (living); George Paul Lorman, Warren Valentine Lorman (living); Jacqueline Ann Lorman Hopco (living).

Married twice. 1) Robert Francis Gargiulo (desceased). Children: Roxanne Bernadette Gargiulo-Costello Fechtman (living); Anthony Louis Gargiulo-Selletti (living)
2) John F. Costello (living). Children: John Thomas Costello; Timothy Costello.

My husband was given up for adoption when Marilyn & Bob were in the throws of a messy divorce, so he really didn't get to know either of his birthparents. Bob was dead and Marilyn had remarried by the time we tracked them down. We both are very much in support of veterans and are on the WWI Centennial Committee for PA and involved with the organization called Saving Hallowed Ground. I applauded your efforts on behalf of our military.

Please update the birth info. I'll add some photos to your memorial.

Thanks again,
Barb Selletti

RE: Regarding Billy James Hill
Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! I've looked everywhere and cannot find a death certificate. One day I will go and visit the cemetery myself, but thank you very much for the picture.
