Bio and Links
Bio Photo ****Leo is currently unable to work on his memorials. Please be patient and I will get any corrections, additions, or transfers just as soon as I can... (Annette)

If I made your day then I did my job. My main interest is the veteran memorials. They are doing a great job defending our country. They do their part. Lets do ours. We can't let them down. On a down note, many cemeteries have taken a stand on NOT releasing grave location to non-family members. So, if you have a photo request and you are able, please contact the cemeteries and get the grave location if you do not have it. I have maps of most of the cemeteries in the RGV, so my job is much easier if the location is available.
