Dear Ancestor

"Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is to late to mourn

You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh and blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would of loved you so
I wonder how you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you"

Walter Butler Palmer

Chciuk & Kulmaczewski photos
Gerard, thank you very much for the pictures of Chciuk & Kulmaczewski's crypts! Because of the distance, it's impossible for me to visit any cemetery in the US, thanks to people like you, I've got a chance to visit them on-line! Big thanks!
