~~~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.

Earl Pagel
Adolph Pagel
In 2012 you posted a memorial for an Adolph Pagel born in 1829, for which I have been unable to have the proper headstone attached to his memorial. Are there truly two Adolph Pagel's in this cemetery, as a donor has now posted the elders headstone photo to the older Adolph Pagel's Memorial as well. Please help me clear up this error in acknowledging if the older Adolph is also in the cemetery? Or is this a memorial for an Adolph which does not exist and needs to be removed?

James M, George & Emily Brown
I think you have James M, George and Emily Brown in the wrong cemetery. The markers for James M & George are in Lakeside Cemetery in Fremont. I think Emily is buried there also but her name is not on the grave marker. They all have duplicate entries for Lakeside Cemetery in Fremont and Lakeside Memorial Park in Waupaca.

John W. Shuey
Hi Janet, since you maintain John's grave post, I am wondering if you have a genealogy or other information on him and his family? I am looking for the parents of Katherine/Kate Shuey who married Charles Leverich at Cass Co., MO in 1877. She was born in Wisconsin in 1849. They had a son John Winter Leverich. They lived in Montana where they all died. Kindly let me know if you have anything that you will share. Thanks! John

I went to the cemetery today and did some photos. I have added photos of some headstones that you did not specifically ask for. If you would like a list let me know. Otherwise I am sure you will find them. Thanks. Nancy

David "Dave" Jantz
If you are still work for Find A Grave, I have an obituary for the above that I can send you. He was my father-in-law and there is some wrong information on the web site. His name was Dave & not David. He was never a David although the census takers listed him as such. I have been working on the Jantz genealogy when I came across this website. I would appreciate hearing from you & letting me know who to send a copy of the obituary. Ellen Jantz
