|Bio and Links|
My families are Chambers, Birdyshaw, Estes, Williams, Cole, Jester, Seymore, Bonds. My husbands family Carpenter and Keller.|
Some people have a problem with their pictures being used by others; I don't. If you want to use any pictures I have posted, feel free. If I have created a memorial for your family member and you need me to transfer it to you, I have no problem with that. Just let me know.
I don't do memorials for the numbers; I try to link family members for other generations and wish that all contributors would do the same.
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.
