Our Loved ones all had their hour of "Splendour in the Grass"|
What though the radiance which was once so bright..Be now for ever taken from my sight.. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendour in the grass.. of glory in the flower.. We will grieve not.. rather find strength in what remains behind......poem by William Wordsworth's
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too 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, in blood, in 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 have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
"Come Home to be With Me"
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me.

Do you have any idea where the Grassy Branch Cemetery is in Sevier Co., TN. Find A Grave doesn't offer a map.

|Pat Millican||RE: Cartertown Cemetery|
You are very welcome. Glad I could do it.
|Charles Dean Crosby||RE: Thanks|
I know that feeling. I have been looking for the death dates and burial sites of my 2nd and 3rd great grandparents (Crosby) for 10 years now. I know about where they should be, but have the same issues with old unmarked stones, as in this area. The county they were in, the court house was destroyed in the civil war and all records were lost. I haven't given up, but it is discouraging.
