  • Fuzheado | Talk 01:24, 15 August 2015 (UTC) - Will be with you in spirit! Try to identify videos in Wikimedia Commons or expired copyright that could be included in Wikipedia articles. Even if doing the video is daunting, if you make a list of articles and video assets, we can incorporate them at a later time.Reply[reply]
