Jason C. Finan memorial #171904976
Dear Richard McLean,

I have done several memorials for fallen soldiers. My husband is a very patriotic veteran having served 26 years (Desert Storm and also Vietnam Veteran). I see that you both have similar backgrounds. He served in the Navy and then Seabees reserves for the remainder of his 26 years. He also has ridden with the Patriot Guard Riders and the Warriors Watch in the Bay Area. He is also a life time motorcycle rider!

I recently discovered via an email from another Find A Grave contributor that I have a memorial for Jason C. Finan memorial #171904976 which I created on October 28, 2016 and you have one also that you created a few days earlier on October 21, 2016, Memorial #171653222. I don't know how that happened since I always check to see if the memorial is already done so that I do not create a duplicate. Since I do have a duplicate which I spent a lot of time on, I am asking you if it is possible for you to transfer your memorial to me or to let me just keep mine since I have a lot of stuff on my memorial and would hate to see it get lost. Or, I could send you the information that I have if you would like. I have tried to email you twice but I have had no response.

Hopefully, we can work this out so that all of the information is on his memorial. Please let me know how you think the best way is to handle it. Thank you so much for all you do in the Patriot Guard Riders, it is a much honorable service. And, thank you for your service in the U.S. Army. We have two grandsons that just signed up the Army. One yesterday, we went to Sacramento to see him take his oath, and one last month that did the same. The first on is 20 and he is at Fort Sill, OK now for his basic training and then off to Fort Sam Houston, Texas for schooling for 55 weeks to become a 68C Practical Nursing Specialist.

The second grandson (same family) will be doing his basic training and training for Military Police at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri for 20 weeks.

Well, please let me know what you think. Sorry, that I created a duplicate but I always check first so I don't know what happened. Thanks.

Hi I tried to email you but it bounced back. I did not know someone had also made a memorial for Marijayne Johnson. I have made one as well.
Did you know her?

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
