Thank You Note

One of our stalwart volunteers, Cliff, received this note recently -

Thank-you very much for taking the photo and writing the transcription of this grave.  It gave me the dates and the touching tribute the family chose to inscribe on their loved ones headstone.  It's very nice to have this, and it's thanks to you that I have it.  Sincerely, J... T.....

Keep up the great work, Cliff!  You know you are appreciated.
