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.

******************************************

The Final Gift

Scatter me not to restless winds
Nor scatter my ashes to the sea
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee
Remember now the happy times
The family ties we shared
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared
Deny me not one final gift
For all who come to see
A single lasting proof that says
I loved....and you loved me

D.J. Kramer

find a grave
I noticed the good condition of many of the fallen markers in the Gold Hill cemetery. Would you perhaps know someone who could copy the inscriptions on them before they are lost. The inscriptions are sometimes so telling about what kind of a person was lost. I found one tomb of two little girls. The inscriptions said: Two little feet trod the streets of gold; two little hands the angels hold; two little lips sing the new found song; a new little angel in the angels throng. Her sister's said: God knows best whom to take, whom to leave below. Blest be the name of our God we say. Blest when he gives, Blest when he takes away. I wonder what the inscriptions of the miner's markers say. It should be recorded too. Nancy

Hello, I came across a memorial you manage for Michel Rudler: # 60818338.

You have information on him posted that I am hoping to source. You list your source as a findagrave visitor. I was wondering if you could help me get in contact with this person?

I have found Find a Grave such a wonderful resource,

These details you have posted have helped so much
in giving more information on these family and friends.
