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 hallowed 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.

|Lynda Puakea||Parker & Waipa graves|
Aloha hou! Wanted to clean up the photos on my laptop (I store all photos on an external hard drive), so I made pages for the folks I listed in my previous message and transferred them all to you! Also, will send a photo of the row of Parker graves in Laie Cemetery. The old part of the cemetery is across a bridge and is much small than the newer section. I indicated that David, Wilder & Estrella are in the Old Cemetery... all the others are in the newer.
Have some major hula stuff on my plate right now so donʻt know when I will get out again... but I will watch for your requests... e malama pono...
|Lynda Puakea||Parker & Waipa graves|
Aloha kakahiaka e Leilani!
As you can see, I traveled up to Laie yesterday to fulfill some requests... also photographed some other Parker & Waipa graves... since those were the names of your photo requests Iʻm thinking they are also relatives of yours? I donʻt see pages for any of them... if they are yours let me know and I will post pages, add the pictures and transfer them to you...
David Nalani Parker
Estrella Parker Hottendorf
These 3 are in the old cemetery.
Stephen Parker Waipa
Mary Kalama Parker Waipa
Samson P.N. Parker Sr
Mary Choy Parker
The above 4 are in a row with the 4 Parkers you requested (Arthur Sr, Eva, Arthur Jr & Hazel) and I took a photo of that row of graves.
Look forward to hearing from you...

Thanks for the information.

i stopped by there on my way to tacobell and found the grave and they are in good shape. someone very recently placed flowers and leis on the graves and i didnt want to disturb the offerings. if it doesnt bother you that the block the inscriptions than i can stop by again later this week or the next and take pictures or maybe by then the flower etc have been removed?

It's me, Kathy again Leilani. I forgot to add Robert C. Wallace should be added to Benjamin's list of children, b. 1901 and he should also be added to Lavinia Marlar Wallace children. Thanks again.
|Countrygirl69||Ella Georgia Wallace|
Hi,Leilani, This is cousin Kathy. Could you add my Grandmother, Ella Georgia Wallace (1884-1941)to Benjamin Wallace's children. Georgia and Dettie should also be added under Benjamin's second wife, Lavinia Marlar Joiner Clements. Georgia, Oliver and Dettie are Lavinia's children, rather than Brunette Martin's. Thank's, hope all is well with the family.
|Sherry SH||Alexander Jarret photo req. Diamond Head|
I see what happened here, there are two memorials for Alexander. The one that has a photo is memorial #22695620. Spelled with two Ts.
I will leave it you to ask the creators of the memorials to straighten it out. let me know where you want me to add my photo.
|Randall||Frances Hobron Baldwin Cameron|
You are very welcome. I am glad that you liked the photos. Her name and dates were a little hard to read.
