A dear neighbor got me interested in cemeteries while I was a child, she, her daughter and myself use to do Sunday drives and along the way we always stoped at a local cemetery.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.
If I should not be with you when the next sun sets,
Don't mourn.I've had a lot of sunsets, and I've loved them all.
But I have had such splendid things to love,
You'll know I've had my share.
Just reach out to the world:
Embrace it for me.
Grab joy, but let it shine; it may be all that's left of me Still shining.
And when rain dances, know thatI will be the dancing.
Don't forget: I love you always. Still.

I thought the following might be of interest to you....Reply from Roanoke Library/Virginia Room in response to questioning of the Blue Ridge Cemeteries:
Thanks for bringing us this question. Given what you're finding, I can see why there's some confusion!
Our research indicates that there are really four cemeteries here:
1. Blue Ridge Baptist Church Cemetery, Botetourt County, VA
2. Blue Ridge Church of the Brethren Cemetery, Botetourt County, VA
3. Blue Ridge Memorial Gardens, Roanoke, VA (City of Roanoke)
4. Blue Ridge Baptist Church Cemetery, Vinton, VA (Roanoke County)
It looks like the cemetery pages in FindAGrave with maps are correct. The questionable one, then, would be the Bedford County cemetery. According to the multi-volume set of Bedford County Virginia Cemeteries we have here in the Virginia Room, one of the four internments listed in the Bedford County cemetery on FindAGrave are actually in the Roanoke County one (Charles Webber.) In the book "Some Bedford County, VA Cemeteries, Vol. II" the Roanoke County cemetery is described as "located at 2410 Hardy Rd., Vinton, on the Bedford-Roanoke County line." I'd suggest that could be the issue.

I'm guessing that Susan must be a relative on mother's side, but I can't make the connection (I'm assuming she's the Susan that is still alive, listed in Henrico). - Mark

Thanks for the Max Barker transfer. If you get chance, can you see if Max's wife is buried in any of the Roanke Jewish cemeteries? She was Dorothy Banks Barker, died June 3, 1989. Thanks. - Mark

Thank you so much for linking Katherine Mabe #34261045 in West End Cemetery to her parents.

Ms. Laurie: I'd certainly appreciate it if you'd link Mr. Dunjee (54098486) to Drusilla Dunjee Houston, 112043072 (his daughter). Thx!
Hello again Laurie,
Thank you so very much for your generosity in transferring Elizabeth L. "Lizzy" Parke Rainey to my care. I have now successfully connected her, and as more information comes my way and time permits, will be adding to OUR memorial. Have a peek, I think you'll like what I have added so far.
Your willingness to share is much appreciated.
With regards and sincerest thanks,
