Hoping to transfer maintenance of memorials of those who are not my relations. I tried to add genealogy data to help people find their family members. Permission to use photos. They were taken for you. I'm just trying to "pay it forward" in thanks to all who have helped me.
Memorial Day Poem
Two short months have gone, dear Dad, since you have passed away Yet, most of what you gave to me is still alive today. Your faith, your love, your strength abide just like a strong oak tree Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.
Dear Mother, ten short years ago, you left this earthly home Yet, all you said and taught to me still shields me like a dome. Your care, your smiles, your lessons reign just like a master key Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.
Twenty years have flown, dear Gramps, since I have seen your face. Yet, all the love you gave to me surrounds me like a brace. Your caring, thoughtful tenderness dwells like the deep, blue sea Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me.
Dear Ancestors, the centuries passed since you walked on this earth Yet, all your values and your love have found a new rebirth. Your culture will sustain through time with each new family, Because I know, forevermore, you live inside of me. I wrote this on 29 May 2011
William H. Farthing-Memorial # 91299776 In noticing that you & I had different dates for him, I got a magnifying glass to see if I had made a mistake. Since the dates are a little hard to read, the dates I came up with are as follows: His B/d was Feb 2,1899 and d/d 12/10/1948.
On his wife Effie Sugg Farthing I came up with the b/d of March 21, 1870 and her d/d as 4/14/1901. What do you think?
