RE: Carl West
Hi Dianne. There's no one buried directly next to Carl. There are a couple spaces on either side of his headstone, I don't know if they're empty or unmarked graves. After the spaces, the person on his left is Mary F Guthrie Henderson (1899-1956) and on his right is Paul Bryant Jackson (1902-1957).

RE: Carl West
Hi Dianne, I'm so happy to have found him for you. The picture has been posted. I forgot to mention, he's in Section 22.

It's messages like yours that make the muddy shoes, ant bites, grass spurs, etc. while taking cemetery photos all worth it.

Have a wonderful day,

RE: Spiros Georgas and Hazel Pugh
Your welcome. My grandparents are buried just a few spaces from the Georgas's, so it was not hard to find. Good luck.

Your welcome. I am sorry I could not find it. I will talk to the funeral home and see if they can help me locate it for you.

RE: Karl and Lula White
I have all of those. Thanks. I went over there and the Whites are not in Sanctuary of St. Paul. I stopped b y the office but Mrs. Read, the receptionist on duty today, told me they were understaffed due to multiple services. I told her I could come back. She suggested Monday so I will do it then. She's generally pretty nice to me and I trust her when she says she has no one available. I did see a very young and skinny coyote! Not sure where it came from. We have them in our neighborhood as we have several culverts that drain into White Rock Lake.

RE: Karl and Lula White
I, too, used to have a gentleman who helped me with locations. They know me over there and I try to be respectful of their time and what is going on with visitations and such. Both my parents and in-laws are buried at SH. They know I have maps of several of the gardens because I keep them in a notebook I usually take with me. I have one of Hillcrest Mausoleum and will go over today and search the Sanctuary of St. Paul. If you wouldn't mind letting me know by name which maps you have, maybe you have one that I don't and I could get that one from you. Thanks.

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. There are four mausoleums at SH and the largest, Hillcrest Mausoleum, takes about 2 hours to walk if you are looking at every name. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.
