This year NJMOH has been blessed with the support of so many members giving of their time to ensure our forgotten veterans are honored and given a final resting place. Through the efforts of our members, county coordinators, the assistance of so many veterans organizations and rider organizations, NJMOH has become family to 91 abandoned veterans. THANK YOU on behalf of myself and the Executive Committee, without your support NJMOH would not have reached this milestone.
 
In the coming year, through your continued support NJMOH inter many more abandoned cremains. Already there are three funeral homes with cremains and many more will be cooperating with NJMOH in 2013 to fulfill our Mission.

A letter of appreciation from a family member:

December 28, 2012


Dear Veterans & Friends,

During a recent visit to your state to visit my husband’s family, decided to drop in on an aunt and uncle who I had not seen for 30+ years.  There was so much to talk about and I learned things about the family I never knew.

The one that really surprised me was the fact that my grandfather had been cremated and his ashes had been lost.  This was the explanation of the funeral home at that time.  Upon returning home, the first thing I did was Google Theodore August Musall. Then I watched the video of 12 veterans being laid to rest in August of this year.  My grandfather was among them.  I felt both so sad and so blessed at the same time knowing that God had just shown me some of His most honorable servants here doing His work.

My most heartfelt thanks for you!

In His Loving Grace,
Sharon Nigro
