Why wasn't a Memorial to John DeGroat added as Jim's was?

I see John's here on the "in memory" section.  When I put Jim's obit on the  DMHS '67 facebook page I noticed that no one had put John's on that page, so I added it.

I knew Jim, a/k/a “T,” at DMHS, at Albion College, and in the Saginaw legal community.  I never heard him say a bad word about anybody; I never heard anybody say a bad word about him.
