Thank you so much for posting this picture of the Malmedy Memorial. My mother's first husband, Tech. 4, Sgt. Cecil J. Cash, was killed there in Dec. 1944. If you live near there would it be possible for you to take a picture of the brick in the wall that has his name on it for me? I would appreciate it so much & would be glad to pay you for doing this.

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, I don't live in the area, I just went for vacation.

However, I have friends who travel to the area at least once a year, so I will ask them to make a good quality photo of the brick with the name.

Thank you so much! Sorry I haven't responded sooner but have been having a lot of computer problems & it wouldn't let me post on this site & many others. I look forward to getting the picture. I want to use it on my biography web page about Cecil. I will put their name as the photographer & your name as the referral. you can view what I've done so far & I will be adding more information to this page when the biography is finished. Thanks again for your

Hi Gus, Just wanted to let you know that it won't be necessary to take photographs of the Malmedy Massacre Memorial Wall afterall. Mathieu Steffens from the Baugnez44 Historical Center sent me a whole bunch of pictures recently in return for my donating Cecil's army memorabelia (sp?) to the Historical Center.

Thank you for offering to ask your friends to do this for me though. It really means a lot that you were willing to go to that trouble.

By the way, my father's name was Gus - short for August. And his father & grandfather were Gus's too. :-)

Hi Esther,

Thanks for letting me know. It is great news. You have the photo you were looking for and the memorabilia of Cecil will be displayed in a military museum, where it belongs.

I'll be sure to check it next time I visit the Baugnez44 Historical Center.

It is a pleasure to know people like you.

Take care.
