Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Sheridan County North Dakota.
I am a retired farmer.
I was in the Army 82nd Airborne,Fort Bragg,North Carolina 1964-1967.
I am into genealogy for a few yrs.
My family lines are the Reiswig's, Triebwasser's, Henne's & Schaefer's.
A new hobbie is taking photo's of grave markers.
And I will do transferes on request. Anyone can use any photo or info I have posted..

"We are all volunteers on this great site. We do not own the memorials. We are merely caretakers." (-Dr. Andree)

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny;
When the government fears the people, there is liberty."
Thomas Jefferson.

"Man is not free unless government is limited." Ronald Reagan.

Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
Lord Byron, (1788-1824)

Happiness keeps you Sweet...Trials keep you Strong...Sorrows keep you Human...Failures keep you Humble...Success keeps you Glowing...But Only Friends and Faith keep you Going.

"Words of Wisdom" sent to me by a Friend.

"Those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants."
-Unknown.

"The German is like a willow.
No matter which way you bend him,
he will always take root again."
~ Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn

"The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of God stands forever." ~~Isaiah 40:8

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others 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.

WILL AND TESTAMENT

WHEN I DIE I WILL NOT END
THO MY BODY TURNS TO DUST.
I'LL TRAVEL WIDELY THROUGH THE STARS
WITH FEWER CARES, I TRUST.
SO FIND A PLACE TO LAY MY BONES
MY MUSCLE, HAIR, AND SKIN.
THEN PLANT A TREE ATOP MY CHEST
FOR LIFE TO START AGAIN.
LET HER ROOTS ENTWINE MY RIBS
AND TEAR APART MY COFFIN.
IT MATTERS NOT THE LEAST TO ME,
I'LL BE IN HER BRANCHES, LAUGHIN'.
WHEN I'VE PUNCHED MY TIME ON EARTH,
WITH NO MORE NEED OF CLOCKS,
I'LL GO TO FIND THE NEXT NEW ME.
PLANT THIS LAST ME IN A BOX.
By: DIENNA GENTHER - 2005

You're welcome, Jerry. Unlike most markers at Lodi Memorial, this one actually was easy to find!
