Bio and Links
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.


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.

Clarence is my grandfather. Thank you for your work on this website. I unfortunately did not make it to the services, but this has given me a tiny bit of closure and I do plan on visiting him this year. Again, Thank you so much!

Vera, Thanks for your most kind deed in transferring baby Glenda's memorial to me.

We were at the Forest Grove Cemetery last week and came upon her tombstone. I did not have her on the family tree. Thanks!! for adding her memorial.

Happy Thanksgiving. We are in Florida for a few months to get out of the cold weather.

Hi - thanks for all of the work you do.

Can you add Edna Newmans Rhoden as another daughter of John Newmans. Her number is 64124104. There is one more daughter who has passed away. Her name is Elizabeth Newmans Warren. I don't have her memorial number right now.

Thanks in advance.
