Bio Photo I enjoy contributing to Find A Grave. It's a great way to create a permanent memorial of our family, friends and loved ones.

I will be happy to transfer memorials to a family member or friend. If you find mistakes or duplications, please let me know so I can correct them.

God Bless You All,

Please stop by and visit my Dad and leave flowers if you like.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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.

Vera,

I really apreciate the transfers and for promptly entering links. My greatgrandmother was a McKinstry from Pennsylvania and I have been researching the family for almost 40 years.

After moving to Gainesville, I discovered there were McKinstrys here and have been researching the family and find them very interesting.

Again Thanks for the transfers and all the good work you do for Find A Grave.

Thank you!
Hey Vera, I hope you're having a wonderful day. I appreciate the Deen transfers, though I can't imagine why you'd send them to me. But I appreciate them nonetheless.

Regards

Vera,
Thank you so much for the transfers. I've been trying to add a little to the families' biography as well as connect them with most of their people who were in the Wilson Co. TN area after their migration from Clark Co. KY. I appreciate all the diligent work you've done in documenting and photographing the memorials.
