THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
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 hallowed 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.

I spoke too soon.
Right above the Wiedmaiers is "Mr. & Mrs. John Clark."
We haven't corresponded in a while, but I found something tonight that was interesting.
I was looking through my great-grandfather's funeral book. His name was Charles E. Pritchett, Sr.
On the "Relatives Attending" page, I found the signature of "Mr. & Mrs. Bernard Wiedmaier." I instantly recognized the last name as being a Pritchett relation.
I'm trying to think of the relationship between Faye and Charles. Faye and Charles would have been cousins since their mother and father were siblings.
I thought that this was interesting.
Thank you Paul for the Davis transfer and all the memorials you have listed. Your work is appreciated.
Thank you so very much for the transfer.
Happy and safe Holidays
|Marie Hasslefree||Lester H Stull & Martha E Stull|
Please make the following correction relationship at:
Mountain View Memorial Park Lakewood, Washington
Martha Elizabeth Stull is my Mother.
She is buried beside my uncle Lester Harold Stull.
The relationship on the headstone says SPOUSE. This is incorrect. They are brother and sister.

Thank you Paul for the transfer of Mabel Raplee. Sorry I called you Carolyn! I had just made a request to Carolyn for Mabel's husband and had assumed she had the Mabel's memorial too.
Hope this new year brings you great things!

If you call the cemetery and get the burial location I will go out and take the photos that you requested. Due to privacy laws this cemetery will not give out grave locations to non-family members.
You can email me direct at email@example.com or post the plot number on your memorial pages and I'll keep an eye out for them.
