OH, I just love these shots. And right across the steert from you! How awesome. I think this in the top 3 of things I miss... churches and cemeteries. Sounds odd, I know, but the above ground gravestones I find strangely comforting, and the old solid churches with stained glass, well they just feel more spiritual. I like the two as a set... The blue of the sky echoed in the blue of Mary's robe against the white and gray, that just knocks me out. Thanks to Owen, I'm so glad I found this blog!

Tiffany Hughes - Wes! LOVE the first two. Love them all, but LOVE the first two. Hilarious! I'd blow them up to 20 24 s, or 16 20 s, put them side by side in the gorgeous new farmes you have and hang them in the hallway or in her bedroom. How perfect. That's just in case you wanted to know what I'd do with them

Last week I adopted a grave of William C Waldridge, unit 34 TK BN 5 ARMD DIV, rank PVT. He died unfortunately at 13 april 1945.
I would like to know more about this soldier or his family.
I believe he lived somewhere in Kentucky. There is a possibility to bring family some DVD-material of his grave in Margraten (Holland).
Who can help me finding relatives?

We live a view miles from the Margraten Cemetery. And today we visited it for the first time. And it leaves a lasting impression. We have visited War Cemeteries in other country's. Someone’s father, son, brother, sister, mother is buried there far away from his or her family.
I am in the possibility to make a connection over the web. So If you need a picture of a grave. Or there is something we can do for anyone please let me know. It will be a very small effort against the sacrifices made so I can be free.

I am trying to get a picture for my father of his father's grave. His father died in World War II and I believe he was buried in a Dutch cemetary. If anyone knows a way of obtaining this please let me know as it would mean so much to him. Thank you!

My son recently visited my Father's gravesite, and was very impressed by the obvious care of the Dutch people. Thank You. M. Gilmer
