I have posted the photo in lostplaces.de and immediately got the answer:

It's the Chapel of St. Pancratius, but not in Troisdorf or Germany or Europe but on the La Loma Catholic Cemetery in Manila, Philippines:

Thank You Christoph! another great find! I was only.. what... 10,000 miles off? LOL

With no landscape showing in the background made it hard to determine a possible location. My first impression of the pic judging by the architecture & damaged condition of the building it was possibly german.

WOW thank you so much for identifying that for us! I'm going to my mother's wedding (my grandfather's daughter) in June and plan to bring all this great info with me to share with the rest of the family!
