If anyone has anything to add to a memorial I've made PLEASE let me know and I will be glad to add the information! I Love to link their parents to each memorial or have their obituary to add.|
I'm interested about who my ancestors were and how they may have influenced who I am today. I am also researching my husbands ancestors and am learning as much as I can to pass on to our daughter. It's also fascinating to learn about the many different church backgrounds they all have had.
Still searching in PA!!
I found this through a friend:
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
They say that life is fleeting; I know that this is true. I left this world so quickly, with no goodbye to you. I know how much you miss me, your tears fall ever light. The pillow where you lay your head, Is wet with them at night. I know your heart is hurting, the words we left, unsaid. I love you's left unspoken are spinning in your head. The strength that I have carried, that served to make you whole, remains to make you stronger, within your grieving soul. For you see, while you were weeping on the day I passed away, at the gravesite near the flowers where my loved ones knelt to pray. An angel came to see me, she took me by the hand, she led me to a kingdom in a very distant land. As I look down from the heaven, and see you standing there, your heart so ever burdened with more weight than it can bear. I long to bring you comfort, I long to give you peace, I long to hold you closely, cause all your tears to cease. The joy I've found in heaven goes far beyond compare. The love that's so elusive, can be found here everywhere. The light is softly shining, there's no storm clouds here or rain. There's no teardrops found in heaven, there's no suffering, there's no pain. You needn't be so troubled, Stay close to God and pray that someday we'll be together, one bright and glorious day. So my love, you shouldn't question my dear you need not cry I've gone to be with Jesus I really didn't die.

You are very welcome!!!! Always glad to lend a hand to a fellow researcher if I can.
|GLENDA EISENHOUR||RE: Catherine Mayer|
You're very welcome. Glad my memorial was helpful. In fact, I'm not related so if you would like this memorial transferred to your care, I'd be glad to do so.
|Chuck Lewis||RE: Crawford Grave|
I posted new pictures today for the Crawford plot. I also saw a Heavener plot nearby that I didn't see during my first visit. If the following are part of your family, I'll gladly upload the pictures if you create the memorials.
George T. (1873-1956)
Willie A. (1882-1963)
Lewis T. (1924-1998)
Theresa G. (1925-2007)
George T. Jr. (1907-1972)
If they are not your ancestors, I'll create the memorials and post the pictures. Let me know. Thanks.
|Chuck Lewis||Crawford Grave|
I posted some pictures of the Crawford grave to fulfill your request. Now that I know the plot location, I'll go back in a few weeks and get you better pictures. For your information, although the plot is under the name of Crawford, there are 2-Heavener's (Lee Roy and Mildred M) and 2-Schaefer's (Mabel E and Clarence E) buried there. If you would like pictures of their stones, please let me know. Thanks.
Also, I am curios, are you sure on her mother's name? While doing our family tree it becomes unclear on who her mother was. Harvey married two sisters, Sallie Newcomer and Emma Newcomer. Then had a third wife, Annie. We believed her mother was Emma. Everyone on that side of our family with knowledge has passed so we have been trying to piece it together. I added Annie's info to her memorial but I am really unsure if she is her mother. Thanks!

I added her parental links to her memoria, thank you! Jennie is my Great Grandmother, we called her Grandma Sue. Her daughter Hazel is my maternal grandmother. I would rather not transfer this memorial, but I think I have to if you are of closer relationship. Let me know, if anything I guess we learned we are related! :)
