I believe in representing the markers in the best way I can, not only out of visual preservation, but because they are a memorial to someone's loved one. |
Feel free to contact me about photos, transfers, etc. I am thrilled to be able to transfer memorials to family members. I hope someday to only hold my own family memorials (particularly the names listed in my virtual cemetery).
Please allow me some time to make changes; I have a demanding job these days. :)
Additional information is added to memorials at my discretion in order to preserve privacy for the families. Thank you for your understanding.
I started working on the National Memorial Park cemetery (Falls Church, VA) in 2008 and have spent the majority of my time in sections U, X, W, H, Garden of Ascension, Last Supper, Fountain Court, The Cloisters, Cremation Garden, and recently K - though some days I like to rove around. It is 200 acres so plot numbers come in very handy for photo requests. The NMP office will give out plot numbers by phone without charge but I don't want to wear out my welcome by asking too often. :)

I'm happy to see that you created a memorial for Kenneth A Dawson who was a murder victim back in 1976. (Find A Grave Memorial# 30028561) I'm not a relative of his, but am familiar with his story. If you would consider transferring his memorial to me (48137944) I could write something brief on his memorial about what happened, as well as a nice description of him told by his father in a newspaper article I read. If not, I understand. Please consider it. Thanks.

I am wondering, you entered this information for this person. Would you by chance have access to an obituary for Margaret. I am wanting to find out if this is my aunt. The name, dates match, but I am not sure of death date or the death place. Any other information you can provide would be greatly appropriated.
Thank you much

Hello, I submitted an edit request to link him to his parents. The sources were family obits and census records. Thanks for having created his memorial. Paul Turner

Hi, I have entered an edit to link Nelson D Holmes (#35989559) to his father Patrick D Holmes (#35989528). My research shows this through both of their WW II draft registrations and 1920 & 1930 censuses. However Gertrude E Wall was his mother. I found a marriage record for her and Patrick. Patrick is buried here with Ida Lou as his wife. I cannot find a death for Gertrude nor a marriage for Patrick and Ida Lou.
This is not my family; I just wanted to find Patrick & Ida Lou's parents to link them, but found his son instead.
Thank you for all that you do.

Good Morning. I beleive what you are doing at the National Memorial Park in Falls Church, VA. is great!! Keep up the good work. However, one of the memorials you created already existed. It is for George Melvin Bay. He is an ancestor of mine and I appreciate your efforts. If you don't mind, would you either merge your page (#135565723) with mine (#105824051) or delete yours from the site. No need to have two pages. Thank you for all your efforts and for your cooperation. Dan

Good morning. I have a picture of George Bay's marker, and when I went to add it to Find A Grave, I noticed there are 2 George Mason Bays listed with the same DOB and DOD. The other one was created first, but lists that there's no cemetery. Yours lists National Memorial Park where I took the picture. Your Find A Grave memorial(#135565723) was created second. The other memorial is #105824051.

Thank you so much for transferring Florence. I'd love to receive Howard as well. He was her second husband. Thanks again. Wendy
