A Cemetery is a history of people, a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace today.
A Cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering always.
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.
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marble 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 how you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
~ Walter Butler Palmer, 1906 ~

I have added the obit for him from the Glasco paper. It was much more detailed than the Salina one.
Transfer Joseph Giroux and his wife Helen.

Made the change from spouse to parent. thank you
|R. Jeanne Moran||Morris and Margaret Boucher|
Excellent. I am hopeful that you will be able to sort it out! Thanks for your prompt response.
|R. Jeanne Moran||Morris Boucher|
Ditto. Morris's wife, Margaret, is listed twice as his wife.
|R. Jeanne Moran||Margaret E. Boucher|
Do you know that Margaret's husband, Morris, is listed twice on your site? Perhaps you could redo the relationships to eliminate one entry.
I sent you two requests back in early May, that have gone unanswered. Just sent them again in case they were overlooked or forgotten...thanks
|R. Jeanne Moran||Joseph Isaac Boucher|
P.S. I left the correct father's memorial site number as an edit on June 12, 2015.
