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.

David Hollingsworth?
Hi Vera, been a long time communicationg. I saw that you were maintaining #32027202. It was interesting that it was created in 2009, but he did not die until this year !!

If you do not mind would you remind me where you live? I think it must be florida since you have done so much there. I will be going to the Orlando area over Christmas and I would like to call and speak some if you were willing. I lost my hard drive a few months back and my FTM backup was two months old so I have been scrambling to get everything back up and running. It seem that when you download from Ancestry, into the new FTM some things get scrambled or the abbreviations ae not consistent with my methods. I have been updating the Hollingsworths that we have in common so that is why I decided to reach out.

regards

Edward Sanchez Whitehead...

Thanks, Vera, for the edit and transfer of Avie. She is my great-grandfather's sister. Been trying to find out why she died at such a young age.
Thank you, again!
