There are two memorials for John Ames. This one 192337455, no headstone photo attached. The second is memorial 16169569 and has a headstone photo attached for himself and his wife. Recommend keeping memorial 16169569 and deleting 192337455. Note there are also two memorials for John’s wife Harriett. One is 192337473 and includes a photo of herself. The second is memorial 192337473 and has a photo of Harriett. Recommend keeping memorial 192337473 and linking it with John Ames memorial 16169569. Delete memorial 42138344. This will establish one for John, one for Harriett linked together and have her photo on hers with the headstone photo on his. The headstone photo can also be loaded on Harriett’s memorial since it has both names on it.
