Everybody...looks like Freddie's memorial plaque honoring him should be ok and IS approved, just scouting for a different location other than his childhood home, it's the LOCATION of the plaque that was CANCELLED, NOT the plaque itself!!!!

....and instead the Foundation is shooting TENTATIVELY for it to be placed at,
I think Garden Lodge, if that doesn't pan then they will again try for another location that DOES work out. But the Plaque for Freddie IS APPROVED.

I had emailed the CORRECT Heritage Foundation Chairman David Graham & President Rick Wakeman on Saturday 4/16/2005.

This morning 4/18/2005, I received this lovely email from Mr. Ian Freeman who is with the CORRECT Heritage Foundation.

"Arlene, thanks for your note.

I think that if you re-read Brian May's website item, you'll see that it says
"Enquiring whether any truth that a plaque will be installed *at Freddie's
teenage home*..." This is the house in Feltham, and has since proved not to be
possible.

In fact, the plan is now to locate the plaque elsewhere, probably on his home
in London. We are currently talking to Brian and Roger Taylor and hope to be
able to proceed with a plaque shortly.

Many thanks for your interest.

Best,

Ian Freeman
The Heritage Foundation"

Thats great about the plaque...Garden Lodge would be a great place for it. I hope the plaque will go there.

Fairy...and Everybody else...here's everything you need to know.

I already emailed a letter to David Graham and Rick Wakeman about this and trying to facilitate this happening NOW for Freddie.

FYI...KENNY EVERETT, the Capitol One Radio DJ who championed Queen & Freddie, already has a plaque (Kenny died after Freddie).

"Kenny Everett- Plaque unveiled 16th May 1999 Teddington Studios"

Also included are Peter Sellers, John Lennon, and Buddy Holly who is from Lubbock, Texas United States....so I'm sure Freddie fits is a MOST worthy and deserving candidate.

EVERYBODY!!!!There are 2 DIFFERENT Heritage Foundations, and some of you had the INCORRECT Heritage Foundation and web address.

Everybody...here is the CORRECT website for the CORRECT ORGANIZATION!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.theheritagefoundation.info/

Here's the list of artists with plaques.

David Graham's email is

david@theheritagefoundation.co.uk

Please write him and President Rick Wakeman to show your support and see that Freddie is honored as so he should be, it's worth it...for Freddie.

OK thanks so much, Arlene!! You're cool. That's why I asked...I didn't want to write to the wrong people! I'm at work right now, I'll email them tonight.

Thanks again.

Love you Freddie!
