RE: Alan Kjos
You are welcome!! Its my pleasure to help out!!
I know what you mean about not being to visit cemeteries. MY grandparents (my mom's parents) are buried in ND, and we are lucky if we manage to go there once a year to visit. So in a small way, its my way of giving back to others who are unable to as well.

RE: Marian Hanson
Hello, Funny that the name is spelled HANSON instead of HANSEN and that the death date of 2011 is wrong. Regards, Brent

You are very welcome. While there I also took a picture of her husband's memorial and added him to Find a Grave.

Pay It Forward

Dale Myrum photo request
There was a photo request for Dale Myrum on Find A Grave in Hibbing Park Cemetery. I checked the cemetery database, and he is not listed, however, Donna is. I went to the location within the cemetery and took a photo of the marker. When I went to post it, there was already a photo on the memorial which I had taken at an earlier date.
