Bio Photo THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin, In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds - Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot; Who lies beneath this hollowed ground? Was it a babe, child, young or old? No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay. We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget, But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence, A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend, For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come Will be grateful for your trust.

DeWitt & Lila Bates
I added a picture of their marker and it pushed their pictures down. This is just in case you want to move them back to the top.

Tom A Yates
Thank you so much for the obituary for Tom Yates. I'm sorry it took me so long but I have updated his memorial. His granddaughter is one of my best friends so I included him when I was searching for another name in this cemetery. If he is your family, I would be more than happy to transfer to you.
