ID Military in Westlawn-Hillcrest
We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.

If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.

Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

Doris Hampton Trejo
Hello. In 2008 you left a flag on a memorial for Doris Trejo. Are you related to her or did you leave the flag because she is buried with her veteran husband? I am trying to find descendants of hers because her father and my great-grandmother are siblings. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Edna Mae Young
Hi Jan,
While looking for my husbands "adopted by heart" mom, I found this link. I am REALLY hoping it is the right Edna Mae Young. We live in Irving, Texas and my husband Richard rented a room in Dallas, Texas from her for a while before we were married. She moved back to Kansas in the 80's and we lost touch with her. She was a very big part of my husbands life and of ours with our kids. Even my sisters called her mom and all the kids in my family called her gramma. She had a sister named Virginia Swanner who lived in Kansas. We made many trips up there to see them. I would be thrilled if there was a connection. She was also a registered nurse and loved poodles. LOL Thanks for you time. Just let me know if I am on the right track. Judy Gallegos Gafford

My dearest friend
Thank you so much for kindly remembering my parents. As you may guess, the loss of my dad was another bad shock for me, and it took me some time to get back onto my feet again, but I try my best and sure pray that dad is pleased with how I cope. Have not read from you in what seems like an eternity, please keep in touch, love and hugs, xxx Edda

Was wondering if u are somehow related to her?? We just found out she was related on my grandmother's side of the family. She would have been her aunt. We've been doing an ancestry search.

Charles F. Greenawalt
Hi Jan, I see you added flowers to Charles F. Greenawalt's memorial. Are you related to Charles. The reason I am asking is that Charles married my great grandaunt Mary Fair from Birdsboro, PA. They had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. If you could provide me with any information I would be very grateful.

Sometimes I need to reach out to you because this is the only acceptable place to grieve. Mother has now been gone 10 months. Most of the world thinks that is enough time to be on with my life. Papers finaled and settled, bills surrounding her death are paid. Life moves on. Things are moving but I am standing still.

I had a memorial video done when my Dad died. Many pictures set to music. When my Mom died, I had one done for her and put my Dad's on the same DVD. Now it is hundreds of pictures and seems like a root canal to watch.

I viewed it tonight for the first time since I buried her.

What I saw was babies, toddlers, young adults, young adults that found each other and fell in love. They grew up together. Over and over I replayed each picture in my head. It was the days before the responsibility of family life and work. While love was fresh and dreams were being built. The look of two people who loved each other and nothing was ever going to stop them. The days I was their baby and remembered the picture being taken.

What kept coming back to me was how real their lives were. That they had a childhood and a life. Even when I can't see them, it somehow goes on. We all are touched with life, our own and the loss of the lives taken from us. All over these pictures were people communicating love, with a gentle hug, a smile, eyes shining with hope. As I view the pictures of your loved ones on your memorials, I see the same lives, the same hope, the same "I leave you with my love."

So tonight I just wanted to say they are sending us their love, I know they are not gone but live on in our eyes, in our hope. In everything that made them, also makes us.

I don't want to stand still anymore. I want their lives to shine through me. I don't even know if it's possible. I have to learn how to grieve, I don't think I have been doing this right. I think part of grief is letting go, that courage that only we, can find deep within us that "they" put there. There is no doubt in my mind that our loved ones will give us the courage to grieve and let go.

Anyway I needed you tonight and I thank you for friendship and helping me find the courage that my Mom and Dad gave me.

Sweet Dreams,

RE: Your dear Mom
I am just doing this day by day. Things have changed so fast for me. I am still not able to eat I have lost 8 lbs in 10 days. Sleeping is hard also. I just get to sleep and then wake up. I hurt almost everywhere. My joints and head aches most of the time. I am limping. It has taken on a physical form, not just sadness but I am getting sick.

I felt that at some point I would feel relieved, knowing she had gone home to be with the lord. That her pain had come to a close. I keep reliving the last days where she was so thirsty and she would try to swallow, and it would go right into her lungs. So fluids were stopped. Her veins could not hold am I V.

The last days were precious to me but are forever burned in my memory as true suffering for her. I have been staying home except to go to the cemetery.
She will share my Dad's head stone.

I keep reminding myself that a month ago I got a new grand daughter. That I have a son who is married with three children now and I should be focusing on them.

I am so tired like running a marathon that never ends. I feel your prayers and I know God must be hearing them. I wish this on no one. I can offer no advice on any of it as of yet. I am still wading through this grief like quicksand at times I feel like it will just grab me and pull me under. I am at war. In my spirit and body.

Thanks for listening,

RE: Your dear Mom
It is like my life has went on pause. The grief washes over my like waves. One minute I am ok the next I feel like I am going to fall to the floor and not be able to get up.

I keep picking up the phone to call her, then in a split second, I remember she is gone. I long to hear her voice. I need her to comfort me.

Find a grave is a very public place to grieve and I know that. You always run the risk of showing that bit of your self that is just a little to much. I don't car right now I need you.

I have been here for six years and I need your support and prayers. I can't sleep, or eat I am in physical pain and I can't hear God. Everything around me is changing. I laid her to rest yesterday, the sun came up today because I was up to great it. My life is moving forward but I can't feel it.

If I do get to sleep I wake up alright for a few seconds and then the pit in my stomach comes again and stays the day. I can't write a bio because I just sob and then my memory falters. I feel there should be a place that society sends people in grief to, someplace to get better.

The pain is so intense. So much worse than when my Dad died because I still had her. The apron strings were never cut and they were always short. I am thinking of joining the armed forces...maybe over seas nursing. I want to run from all of this. I want to hear God again. It is so silent.

Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to pray for God to comfort me. For a direction to be revealed to me. I am lost. Like the foot prints in the sand, I am waiting for him to carry me because I am not walking very well right now.
