Walking, I am listening to a deeper way.
Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.
Be still, they say. Watch and listen.
You are the result of the love of thousands.
~ Linda Hogan (1947-present)

"No love, no friendship, can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever." 

~ Francois Mocuriac


After a hundred years
Nobody knows the place, --
Agony, that enacted there,
Motionless as peace.

Weeds triumphant ranged,
Strangers strolled and spelled
At the lone orthography
Of the elder dead.
Winds of summer fields
Recollect the way, --
Instinct picking up the key
Dropped by memory.
~ Emily Dickinson
by JOHN MASEFIELD (1878-1967) found after his death in a note left for his"Heirs, Administrators, and Assigns":

Let no religious rite be done or read
In any place for me when I am dead,
But burn my body into ash, and scatter
The ash in secret into running water,
Or on the windy down, and let none see;
And then thank God that there's an end of me.


Ample make this bed.
Make this bed with awe;
In it wait till judgment break
Excellent and fair.
Be its mattress straight,
Be its pillow round;
Let no sunrise' yellow noise
Interrupt this ground
~ Emily Dickinson

"They say such nice things about people at their funerals that it makes me sad that I'm going to miss mine by just a few days." ~ Garrison Keillor

I see your post for Thomas Bradley. His mother is grand-aunt of my husband. Are you familiar with his family?

Zappa edit
Thanks for the Zappa edit suggestion. I just happened to stumble onto the Zappa headstone while in the cemetery searching for ancestors so if you would like me to transfer them to you just let me know. I'd be happy to do so.
Really enjoyed reading the quotes & poetry you have in your profile.

Frances Marie Milford
She is on the stone with Louis Wesley Milford so I left her linked as his spouse. I removed the link to James Milford until it is verified that she was also his spouse. Do you know the relationships?
