Johnnie and I are also doing a survey of Riverside Memorial Park Cemetery in South Norfolk, Virginia. If you have (or think you have) any family members buried in Riverside, please contact me and I will check to see if I have already documented their grave site. We have surveyed about 3/4 of the cemetery at this time and have photos of each grave.
Have a great day and we hope to hear from you real soon.
