"In Dreams"

A candy-colored clown
they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
"Go to sleep. Everything is all right."

I close my eyes, Then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream
My dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you.
In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you're mine.
All of the time
we're together
In dreams, In dreams.

But just before the dawn,
I awake and find you gone.
I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

It's too bad that all these things,
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams.

Roy Orbison " In Dreams " 1963

Many thanks to all who have put or will put flowers on my dear wife's memorial page !!!

Thanks for the added information. The memorial now looks "complete."

Edna Cunningham
Hi David,
The three pictures on the memorial are all ones that I took. I never know if someone wants it plain or with flowers. Which one is the old one? And how many pictures do you want me to upload. Or would you prefer I send them to your personal address and you can upload the ones you want?

RE: Cunningham headstone
I didn't know how to contact you after I had down-loaded the pictures. I have other pictures of the headstone if you want them. They are a close up of Edna, and a close up of Ralph, and also the back side of the headstone. I didn't know which to put on the memorial, so I'd be happy to change anything you want, or email the pictures to your personal email. Let me know if you want further follow-up.
And you're welcome. Happy to help out.

My maternal 11th great grandmother is also your maternal 10th great grandmother, Anne Whitmore. That makes 11th cousins 1 time removed. Hello cousin!

Elizabeth Cadman White
Re: Memorial# 91899351

Hello David,
Before leaving Find A Grave, someone transferred to me a memorial for Elizabeth Cadman, whom I believe is your 9th Gr-Grandmother. She is the wife of the William White of Mayflower passengers.

This couple is too often confused with my own ancestor William White who had nothing to do with the Mayflower. He was a brick-layer of no fame.

Elizabeth is no kin to me, but if you would like me to transfer Elizabeth to you, I will be happy to help you with sources to get her pedigree correct.

Please email and let me know. Thank you.

Saw your nice flower on her page and was just wondering if you were cousins through George or through her mom? George's second wife was my mother's sister.

You know them and I don't. If I have more of your family, ask for transfers. :)
