Memorial Transfer
I was hoping that you could transfer the memorial for Margaret Fetterman to me... She was my great aunt.

Hello Richard,
There is a photo on your Memorial that is (1) a duplicate and (2) mounted sideways. I thought you might want to be aware of this fact.

Mr. McLean -
Last night, in going through some of my sister's notes, I came across a list of Lester's descendants. Including, Verlen & Nadine (Kuhl) McLean, 3 children: Gregory Lee, John Verlen (JV) and Cathleen Nadine.
This morning while working on Find A Grave I came across your name.
As strange as it seems I have found family members this way before, so I have to ask. Do any of these names sound familiar to you?
Thank-you for your time and assistance. Carol

James L Woodward's Memorial
Thank you so much for giving me the maintenance
of Jim's Memorial. I have been working on it since yesterday morning. Please take a look at it. We are very proud of our soldier, who had a Presidential Unit Citation and didn't even know ,that he was a hero. who is buried at Jefferson Barracks.

Please give me maintenance of the Memorial that u created for my husband. I have sent you requests before and they were not honored.

I thought maybe you were on vacation or traveling, as I don't see why you would not honor my request.

I was very upset when he passed away, so I did not create his memorial before his Obituary hit the paper. However, I would like to add that and many photos to his memorial and I would appreciate it if you would grant me maintain the original memorial, I will take the one that I created down.

If you won't give me maintenance, I will pay the money for extra photos and removal of ads from my memorial, but I would rather do right, and let you keep the honor that you created it and I can change the order of the information that I add.

If you check on his family links you will note at either I created or maintain all of his relatives. When I am gone, my Daughters will maintain these family Memorials.

Respectfully Requesting,

Verna Deana Woodward, Wife of James L. Woodward

Hi Richard,
I found Mrs. Alexander's obituary, and I thought you might wish to use it as her Bio.

Betty Lou (Wood) Alexander passed from this life on December 4, 2016 having reached the age of 80 years. Betty was born in Wichita Falls, Texas on October 30, 1936 to Velma and Thomas Wood. She grew up in Wichita Falls and worked various jobs while in high school. She attended Abilene Christian College where she met and married Robert W. Alexander, with whom she had three sons: Wayne, Michael, and Larry. She spent the next 22 years raising her sons at home in Houston, Texas. Upon Larry's graduation from high school, she took a job as a bookkeeper for Myrtle Cruz, Inc. (Houston) where she worked for the next 30 years. She spent her last years in Waco, living first with her son Michael, then at Stoney Brook Retirement Center.
Betty was an avid gardener and filled the yard at her Houston home with all kinds of plants and flowers. She was a registered Master Gardner and a member of the Houston Master Gardeners Association for many years. She loved visiting the various arboretums and nature preserves in her area. She was also an avid reader, with bookshelves full of political, historical, and fiction books and novels.
Betty was preceded in death by her parents Thomas and Velma, her brother Tom and her third son Larry. She is survived by her sons Wayne and Michael, daughters-in-law Teri and Suzanne, her grandchildren Tyler, Melanie, Kristina, Richard and John, step-grandchildren Reed and William, granddaughter-in-law Jenna, great-grandchildren Avery and Bradley, and her niece and nephew Jason and Courtney.
It was her desire to be cremated, so we have followed her wish. A memorial service will be held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Waco on Friday December 23rd at Noon.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to: The Carleen Bright Arboretum, 1 Pavilion Way, Woodway, TX 76712.
