~~~Precious Gems~~~

If your heart feels heavy,
It may be weighted down,
With the many precious gems
You fail to pass around.

Diamonds are the loving words
You always leave unsaid.
Rubies are the seeds of joy
That you refuse to spread.

Emerald are the helping hands
Only offered grudgingly.
Sapphires are alms not given
To ease a fellowman's need.

Changing won't be easy
And it may even smart.
When you begin to mine those gems
Embedded in your heart.

It will take a lot of practice
Each and every day,
Learning that neglected art
Of giving yourself away.

First there'll be a secret fear
You may be refused,
Or sometimes deep resentments
That you are being used.

But as you sow your precious gems
Along life's many miles,
You'll notice how they sparkle
In people's happy smiles.

And your heart that was so heavy
Will grow to twice its size,
But be as light as a bird in flight
As it soars up to the skies.

"Transfers: I am not one of
those people who refuse to
transfer in or out of guidelines.
State up front how and why you
feel you should be the manager
of the memorial. I will use
my discretion, but as a general
Ask and ye shall receive, unless
you're 1 of those people who don't
transfer out of guidelines".
(I borrowed this from T.V.F.T.H)
If you are one of those people
the above poem is for you,
please read it and take it to
heart. I also don't like
veiled threats. So please don't
do that. It is so ugly.

For transfer request, please go
to edit. It will make it
easier for both of us.
If you have sent a correction
addition etc. please be patient,
and give me thirty days, to take
care of your request.
I am going to remove my e-mail
address, as I continue to receive
Transfers,corrections, additions
thru there, rather than thru edit
as I have requested above. Please
be sure to include the memorial
number as it is time consuming to
for members to have to look it up,
when you could just as easily send it.
Please do not post a death certificate
or an obituary in the photo section
on any of the memorials I manage.
The obituary should be typed and
submitted to be entered in the bio.
We want the memorials of those we
loved to be as nice as possible.

Willie Moldenhauer correction
Hi Janet,

Doing genealogy for my family recently, I visited Bush Cemetery in Berlin, WI. I believe there is an error for the parents of Willie Moldenhauer. (I recently join Find a Grave and offered the correction.) His parents are William & Mary Moldenhauer, my great grandparents.

Thank you,

Barbara Wulf

It is in the wrong cemetery. There is a memorial for him in the correct cemetery.

Thank you.

re; pvt Orry M DeKay
Hi Janet, I would ask for you to transfer, but I live so far away. I have done edits and am just waiting for you to get a chance to accept. This memorial will link quite a few of my DeKay relatives. Took a while to find him. Thank You! Art Nelson

death date correction
The death date is transposed for Melbourne Cheslak # 79345815. It should be 1961 not 1916.
Thank you Wendy

Samuel Larkin - INFO
Hi Janet,

I have been doing extensive research on the Larkin family. As far as I can tell, this Samuel Larkin who died in 1938 is Green's brother's son. I have this Samuel's death certificate. He was born 30 January 1871 in Mexico, Oswego, New York. He died 22 June 1938 in St. Petersburg, Pinellas, Florida. His parents are: William & Adelaide (Greene) Larkin. Samuel's wife's name is Mabel (Ames) Larkin.

With all the research I have been doing, I was running into duplicate names, which made everything very difficult. So I ordered birth, death, burial information from most of the cities I could think of. Since receiving this information, it contradicts a lot of the online information, which don't list proof.

Green's son Samuel is buried in New Haven Cemetery next to his wife Amy. He died in 1932.

If you want more information, feel free to contact me.

Thanks, Brenda McClain

Her stone is so deteriorated that you can bearly read the words. I'll post the photo, but if it is not up to your standards, just let me know and I'll remove it. Betty Jane

Julia E Hood
I was wondering if there is a headstone or what on this grave. What do you know. I am looking for my great grandmother Julie Hood who died in Dalark dallas Ark. Anything you can tell me would help me determine if this is her grave.. She died sometime between 1865 and 1870.

Thank you Cindy Eason hartley
