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.
If anyone has an addition or correction to anything I have posted please contact me and I will quickly correct it. I am more than happy to turn over ownership to anyone who requests it. AND PLEASE IF YOU SEE THAT I HAVE ENTERED A NAME TWICE, PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT IT. It is easy to make a duplicate without realizing it.
Also -- another FindAGrave contributor wrote this... I think it says it all:
Please note: This is NOT a numbers game, Nor a "who has who" game here. Some of us are serious about getting names & photos of headstones that are not going to be around and making memorial pages. That is what this is about, making/recording that person lived and died. Like many, I spend long, long hours either in a cemetery, or adding memorial pages to Findagrave.com. I would love to see some of the headstones of family members that were in the 1700 & 1800 of my family, but that isn't going to happen as many are gone.
It doesn't matter who has the memorial page, the important thing is that someone cared enough to make a memorial page to honor that person and that is what findagrave.com is all about. Honoring the deceased, NOT who has what memorial or how many that they have. Thanks!

A BIG Thank you for your speedy transfer, I have added links for Adah's Parents and Parents. You have been a truly valuable contributor to one of the best sites on the internet in FindAGRave! I wish you were tied to the Pixley and Darling and Root descendants of Lawrence and Adah.
THANKS FOR THE TRANSFER
Thanks for the requested links for Gladys Weller Bates. Robert Stauffer suggested I ask you if you had grave photos on file her parents, John and Elizabeth Weller in the same cemtery, memorials 20889518 and 20889802. If you do, please add them.
Much appreciation and best wishes,

I found them & thought maybe you would like to know, they all died in a small plane explosion in Canada. Thank you for putting them on here for me to find, I will have lots too share at the next family reunion because of helpful people like you.

Bones! Did you do the photo in Chelsea for John Cassidy recently? Thank you thank you. I have been meaning to get there but when we come down from the UP it's always to rush to something else. Thanks ever so much for taking all the time you have given to Find A Grave.
