NOTE --
The missing oval photo on the memorial is missing because when John's parents moved to California, his mother took the picture with her. The final location of the picture has now long ago been forgotten.

Note: The missing picture was stolen, not taken by his parents. And his mother never left Albuquerque after John's death because John was there. (per his Great Niece)
