What people are saying:
"Just a note to let you know that my wife and I enjoyed your talk about cemetery research last night.  Most of the presentations we hear are somewhat dry but the humor you injected in your talk helped to make your talk both informative and enjoyable.  My wife and I do not hold any office at OCGS.  We are just members who enjoyed your talk.  Thank you."
