Message from photo volunteer:
Hi,
I am a volunteer with Evergreen Cemetery and have been working for the past 3 years with the president of the board on a burial list. There is no knowledge of where Becky is buried in Evergreen Cemetery. She is on the known list of burials, but with no location known.

Could you please remove your request from FAG, please?

I wish I could help you out.

Regards,
Angela Cozart McKnight
