Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.


Sometimes God picks the flower
That is still in bloom
Sometimes the rosebud's chosen
That we feel He's picked too soon
Sometimes the flower is fading
With petals floating down
But God knows the perfect time
To gather flowers from the ground
There is a heavenly garden
In which God takes great pleasure
Because He's placed within it
The loved ones that we treasure
He walks among the blossoms
Giving them eternal rest
And I know that it must please him
Because He chose our very best.

Used by permission. The perfect time for Otis to pass from this life came November 4, 2010.

RE: Geneva Taylor, Poynor, # 171267321
guilty, however if you had of clicked on photo you would have noticed it said photo by Wayne Smith. I may have done 5-6 of these over the years but always gave credit to any one who did photo. Have noticed a lot more where you have done photo's and some one else has reposted. Have seen 2-3 a week where some one has reposted mine and I don't really care. My pet peeves are those like Sue who's picks can not be read and Mary who leaves something out in getting date to match markers. Have over 50 corrections in Tyler Mem alone.
