Dear Mr, Fraser,

I Thank you from the bottom of my Heart for putting the information on your site in recognition of the McDonald Brothers. Just wamted you to know as well within a short time there will be a new tombstone erected in a grey granite much like a war time marker for walter McDonald it will be erected to the left of walters old marker I made sure to ask that there will be No disturbing of the earth beyond 3 to 4 inches deep a free floating base. My Dad gave $1.000 dollars towards this stone. I had drawn up the design and if you would like me to Send a photo later I would be Happy to do so. Thank you for all of your respect and kindness in what you have done for these special war vets.
