RE: Blanche Pratt, photo request
It was my pleasure! There were no other Pratt markers that I saw. You might want to call the cemetery and ask if they know if there is a marker or do they have any other information for you. There's only a husband and wife that takes care of the cemetery.

Good luck

RE: Lavern K Thein
Oh! lol I get it! I didn't read it right the first time. I am Kay's daughter. Her mom was Lorrayne. So I guess that would make me your niece :)

Lavern K Thein
The correct spelling is Lavern Kendrick Thein. I am his granddaughter. Just wondering who this particular listing is? There is no name with the information?

I would of been happy to link Terry to Mary Jane. Unfortunately the system only allows me to link to Mary Jane's spouse or parents.

Insearchof will have to link him to her. Looks like you have had previous correspondence with them and it should not be a problem for you.

Thank you for your time and talents in the Find A Grave Community.

Please call me Leo. Yes, i do happen to live about 25 minutes from Independence, Iowa. We were there this past weekend taking photos for others. If there is something I can help you with, please let me know.

RE: Lavern Thein
Hi. I've transfered the page as requested. Yes, I live in the Waterloo area and would be able to locate the grave and get a photo but I will be out of town for a week or so. When I get back, if the photo request is still in place, I'll see what I can do.
