~~~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.

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

Selma Oestreich
Hello Janet,

Just wanted to inform you that Selma Oestreich is still alive. I don't know where this Selma fits. Thank you for attaching my grandmother's obituary to my grandfather's page.

Hello Janet, it's been over a month since contacting you about this family, and I would really like to wrap things up so I can move on to the rest of my tree. What's the hold up? Is there some bit of information that you are having trouble with? As I have said before, just contact me if you need some documentation.

Wright #60931484
I am sending this msg. because the Wrights in the Devol Cemetery may be my family. My ggrandmother Georgia A. Wright lived in Cotton County with her husband Minor C. Welch. I have not been able to find her relatives. She was born in 1864 TN and died in Amarillo, TX and has a findagrave site. Do you know anything more about the families in Devol? They might be her siblings.

Eleanor Peak Milburn
Your work is appreciated. Perhaps you'd want to comment on Eleanor's site that several other sources list her husband as Joseph (or Rev Joseph) Milburn. Googling her name brought up several sources. Thanks for your hours devoted to this work. Joan Corrie
