Bio Photo A Poem called "A Disappointment" by Louis Jenkins

Can you imagine reading this as an obituary!

The best anyone can say about you is that you are a disappointment. We had higher expectations of you. We had hoped that you would finish your schooling. We had hoped that you would have kept your job at the plant. We had hoped that you would have been a better son and a better father. We hoped, and fully expected, that you would finish reading "Moby Dick." I wish that, when I am talking to you, you would at lest raise your head off your desk and look at me. There are people who, without your gifts, have accomplished so much in this life. I am truly disappointed. Your parents, your wife and children, your entire family, in fact, everyone you know is disappointed, deeply disappointed.

A person who duplicates another's work is a DUPLICATOR! If by accident, all is forgiven, but, if done on purpose, that person is a SERIAL DUPLICATOR. People of this ilk belong in detention center and sent out of the country after a kangaroo court trial of peers.

No PLEASE and/or THANK YOU concerning requests results in little done on my end! So, be nice if you want results. Otherwise I may just vaporize your requests into oblivion, where ever that is.

John is dying. However, he can smell his favorite chocolate nut brownies cooking downstairs. John summons all the strength that he has left, he flops out of bed and crawls downstairs. He sees the brownies cooling on the counter and staggers over to them. As John reaches for one, his wife's wrinkled old hand reaches out, smacks his and she yells:

'No John, you can't have those! They're for the funeral!'

And yet, another joke fer yah!

Bob's Tavern' was right next door to a cemetery. One day in mid winter a drunk stumbled out of the tavern. Due to his drunk state he wasn't careful where he was going and he fell into a freshly dug grave. "Help!" Screamed the drunk on the top of his lungs, "I'm freezing!" Before long another drunk sauntered out of the tavern and made his way towards the first drunk's cries. "I'm freezing!" Screamed the first drunk again. "Of course you are" scolded the second drunk, coming closer. "You kicked off all of the dirt they had covered you with!"

Hi Larry:
Does your wife have the shot gun loaded & sitting by the door (grinning)...

I've been dealing w/a dingbat out of the West Coast area who seems to think it's really cool/neat to duplicate someone else's hard work & I beg to differ w/'em as all it is doing is making 'em lots of enemies on the site & eventually,
they'll dig themselves a deep enough hole & become someone's memorial on here....geesh !!!

Getting geared up for the "rally" that will be invading our area in a couple of weeks...WOO-HOO

Got my .45 all set & ready to go if the need be,

~ Beth ~

Emanuel Walters
I was told that Emanuel Walters d.1939 was buried at
the Rockford Cemetery. I see that there are three
possible cemeteries in the area. I am thinking Elmwood may be this one? How or who would I contact to find burial information?
Thank you for your consideration

Holy Name Cemetery
Hey Larry,

Thanks for the quick response to my requests at Holy Name. You got them all! You are the best.

All Star game this year in Mpls, hope you can catch some of the festivities. The Twinkies are rebuilding this year I guess. ;)

Looking forward to the start of football, hoping the Gophers have a good season in store for us.

Take care, my friend, and thanks again for all you do for findagrave and me.

Thank you for trying to find the Lindberg's. They must be in unmarked graves.

RE: Byron Edwards
Braving monstrous ticks, copper-headed rattle moccasins, and more skeeters than Carter has pills, I went back to Union Cemetery and found Byron. Now, Doug, the picture I took shows only the top of his stone...sucker is buried deep and all I had with me was a pair of nail clippers!!! But I was able to determine, by feel, a few letters of his name. I have no doubt it's his marker. He's buried near Andrew, too, so it fits. This cemetery was virtually impossible to find, even the county was not sure of its location. But I was determined, and I knew my big 3/4 ton Chevy could handle the terrain. This place ain't seen but a couple dozen people in fifty plus years, and they were the farmers whose fields adjoin the cemetery. Not many worries about vandals where this place is.

Anyhow, Union Cemetery has now been fully transcribed!!!

Case is sol-ved............yeah!!!!!!!!

RE: Mt. Hope Cemetery/Mapleton
Well we survived the long, cold winter. It killed many shrubs, trees, etc. Then came the long cold spring. June was awful. Rain and tornados. Got damaging hail twice this week. Probably no sweet corn out of our patch her at Logan. Still chilly. I am thinking of reviewing what Noah said about the rains. Wet here also. Back problems since Feb. 3rd epidural next week. So, I have the "slows"! Let me know if you come to Monona County.
