Thank you for making the time to visit Lakewood Cemetery in Mpls to capture images of Julius, Tille, and Robert Anderson's grave stones and posting them to their respective online memorials. Your volunteer work is very much appreciated.

Lawrence Olson
Hello DaveVangsness

Thank You so much for taking the photo of Lawrence Olson's grave. He is my biological father. Due to the "Olson" name being so common in Minnesota, it's been very difficult to gain information. I learned he was married, had a wife and had children. This is information I don't know how I would have received without you taking the time to place this photograph.

Thank You again so much for your work.
It's much appreciated.
Bless You,

I am. I worked there from November of 1992 until June of 1996. I retired from Northrop Grumman Information Technologies on Dec 30, 2004. I now spend my time doing genealogy since I am unable to play golf or walk very well any more.

Thank You for the Harman/Akenson photos. This is the first photo request that I made and am surprised at how quickly it was filled. And thanks for the multiple views.
