Desinel is the daughter of John Willis McFarland, and Ann Mahon McFarland. She is buried between her Mom and Dad. They share a common stone.
My cousin died before I was born. All my mother knew about her manner of death was that she collapsed on the sidewalk one day while playing. I am told she was a sweet girl who loved animals, and playing with her dolls. She was an only child. They always called her "Baby". I wish I had known her.
I would like to thank "birdlegs" for taking the headstone photos for me, and for allowing Find A Grave to transfer this page to me. It was such a thoughtful thing to do. Kind deeds come from all different sources.
I would also like to thank Paul Nickolai for enhancing the older photos for me.
Thanks to Medora for sponsoring this page.

She was only six,
Her death before my birth.
An Angel of sunshine,
A short time upon this earth.
An only child, cherished, and loved,
Their world crushed beyond compare.
The center of their universe,
She is no longer there
Their smiles are wooden, with haunted eyes,
Speak their sadness, show their love.
How could this happen?
They ask the Good Lord above.
Without the answers, she's laid to rest,
The sunshine gone, in a heavy rain.
That's when they really know,
They'll never see "The Baby" again.
But years go by, and their time has come,
They are laid to rest at the common stone.
Mother, Father, and Desinel Ann,
All happy and safe in their Celestial Home.
