BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN (via Alice Huitt Preston)

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others 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.

Hi DAvis,
I went to the cemetery today and they have a wonderful listing of all interred there. I took a photograph of the listing you were looking for, and it says he was removed to another cemetery. I'm happy to pass along the photo if you give me an email to which I can send it. Thanks!

RE: Helloo...
Hello, Davis. - There is a copy of my book on my Cobb County Wallaces in the Marietta library. We can discuss how or what you might wish to use from it. I would be delighted to make more people aware of their lives and contributions to the area. The title is: Descendants and Kin of Toliver Wallace (1809-1882) . . . There is a section on Bird Wallace who really deserves a book all his own - what a character he was!

Specialty was on Ga. 293 (aka Old 41/Main St.) just over the Cobb-Bartow County line on the right heading north. A newer building, circa 1960, is there now and operated by a different company.
Thanks for the update on the Quarles family.

Just a note of appreciation for the "Specialty Manufacturing" photo you attached to my Uncle Joe's Memorial (#84178982). That has to go back to the 1940s. I grew up in Acworth and went to NCHS with several classmates from the Stanley road area (Holcombes, Quarles).

Thanks again,

Rick Kienel

"Done... but there are others flowers still there."

Yes, but yours was the ONLY one that said it was a duplicate memorial. Which it no longer is. Thank you for removing the flower. And, thank YOU for drawing my attention to the dup that listed her as ORA.

"Only the memorial page owner can remove... and that is you. Feel free to delete my flower. Thanks."

YOU are the only person who can remove your flower. Click on the picture and it will take you to the delete page. Thank you.

Davis...F/G merged the two memorials and now the original (and only) has your flower on it:

This is a duplicate... this is DORA A.

Would you consider removing this flower.
Thank you.

RE: Bio
It is difficult to manipulate Find A Grave sometimes. I also did all the marked graves in Kennesaw Memorial Park. That cured me of the urge to do any other entire cemetery.
