Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others 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.

WILL AND TESTAMENT

WHEN I DIE I WILL NOT END
THO MY BODY TURNS TO DUST.
I'LL TRAVEL WIDELY THROUGH THE STARS
WITH FEWER CARES, I TRUST.
SO FIND A PLACE TO LAY MY BONES
MY MUSCLE, HAIR, AND SKIN.
THEN PLANT A TREE ATOP MY CHEST
FOR LIFE TO START AGAIN.
LET HER ROOTS ENTWINE MY RIBS
AND TEAR APART MY COFFIN.
IT MATTERS NOT THE LEAST TO ME,
I'LL BE IN HER BRANCHES, LAUGHIN'.
WHEN I'VE PUNCHED MY TIME ON EARTH,
WITH NO MORE NEED OF CLOCKS,
I'LL GO TO FIND THE NEXT NEW ME.
PLANT THIS LAST ME IN A BOX.

RE: LeRoy Thompson duplicate
Yes I know Doc & Laura well :). Please give them hugs from 'Cousin Margaret' and 'Tante Esther' next time you see them.

Assuming you would know my Neff cousins as well - Martha & Charlie's children. You may have already heard that Bob Neff died Oct. 8th, funeral will be Oct. 24 in Hendricks, MN. I will try to get cemetery info from that and start a page for him.

LeRoy Thompson duplicate
Hi Jerry -- Thank you for your helpful response! Yes, I am a newbie here! I stumbled upon this website while doing some work on my family tree on Geni.com.

I actually had searched for a page for LeRoy, but apparently must have entered his name wrong - so sorry for the confusion.

I have deleted #137526513 per your instruction, so you may go ahead and transfer #21410351 to me. I see I have also acquired a collection of my other Schindler and Neff relatives :). If you wish, I can also take over #21380599, my gt. grandfather Johann Schindler; 21318907 Aneta Schindler Gruneich, and #21380613 Richard Schindler.

So that you can place me in my family tree there in McClusky, Jacob & Susanna Schindler are my grandparents, my mother is their youngest daughter, Esther Schindler Gruneich - she is the only remaining sibling & will soon be 98. I have been diligently mining her memory for family history.

Thank you for your help, and all the work you have done organizing and photographing the McClusky cemetery!!

Photo for #137526513 LeRoy Thompson
Hi Jerry, I just added a new memorial page - for LeRoy Thompson, #137526513. He is included on the stone for #21380623, Theodore 'Teddy' Schindler. Would you be able to add this picture to LeRoy's page also?

LeRoy's mother is my aunt Emma Schindler Thompson. The information is from my mother, Emma's sister.
Thank you!

Re: Martha Schindler Neff #21368744
Hi Jerry, Thank you for your work in documenting the McClusky, ND cemetery. My mother is a Schindler -- sister of Martha. It appears that the death place information you have on her listing is in error. She was living with her daughter Janet Neff Wentz in Minot, ND at the time of her death - which would be in Ward County. Would you be able to correct this? Thank you.
