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.

RE: Raymond Mauerhan
Chris,

I thought that you would want to see the note that I received from Raymond's daughter-in-law regarding the information that you found at Fairhaven Memorial Park, and the good that will come from it. Thanks again, Steve

"Thanks so much for sending the information from Chris, I am amazed at how detailed a search the Find-a-Grave contributors will go to to find the correct site, that is so very kind. I showed it to (Raymond's son) and we will check into it next time we are down there, it is very sad that his dad is just in a common storage area."

RE: Raymond Mauerhan
Thank you Chris for going above and beyond to find the information on Raymond. I've never heard of this situation before but it probably happens a lot.
