RE: Highlighted names
I will have to e-mail you the instructions on the link that creates what you are talking about. There is an explanation on the Find a grave front page of theirs. It can be found where it says 'Help with Find a Grave. But it's hard to understand unless you know what you're doing. When I get a chance, I'll e-mail you how to do it.

Thank you for flowering my memorials. Each & every flower never goes unnoticed and are deeply appreciated.

Hello Gwen, It was a pleasure to see that you recently visited my Mom & family. Glad to know you are doing OK. I just recently returned to flowering and have been missing everyone.

Take care & best regards to all.

BTW: Tell Karl Hi & will be visiting soon.

RE: Highlighted names
Hi Gwen,
Thanks for getting in touch.
I cannot remember how to do it, but seem to recall that I copied someone's and then altered the details to change to the people I wanted to high light. So feel free to use mine and see if it works. I will also ask my son to see if he can remember too.
Welcome back to Find A Grave.

Thank you for searching the Abbeville Cemetery for Thomas TIDWELL for me. I appreciate the time and effort you put into looking for his gravestone. His was probably one of those stones that was so old that it is unreadable. Thank you again for your time and trouble. Joyce DAY

* Your Dad ~ Ralph Respess *
Hello Gwen, you are so welcome. From his memorial it sounds like he led an exciting life. I visit Karl's memorials periodically, so it's nice to meet you for the 1st time. Karl & I have been
friends for almost a year now. [Time does fly]

I also ran across 'Julie' and visited "Mary Sue Brakefield Barnett. And tried to bring up "Francis" but drats, my laptop cut me off???? I finally got back on & will try & go to Francis now.

Take care Gwen & thanks for your nice note.
