As I get older, I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer. If they are not a close relative, I will transfer it.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.
