Hi & sorry for the delay! I posted a copy of this Gateway Guardian sticker as a comment on George Elkington's profile. It stays in the comments there, but this sticker is for your profile page - you can copy/paste the coding from the e-mail to your profile (feel free to change the display of your name to suit). Cheers, Liz

Hi Gordon,

I noticed all the changes you're making to William Gray-6005. Would you please provide some insight to me on what you are trying to do? I noticed you added parents and spouse, then removed them.

Thank you, Sharon
