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.

Aloha e Leilani,
Went to fulfill your photo requests today and found quite a few Kamauuʻs... so I took pictures of all, added pages & photos and transferred management to you... hope that is okay... after all, they are your ʻohana!
E malama pono...
|Jenny McManus||Nolan Family|
Thank you for posting this photo request. My grandparents were good friends with the Nolan's and I have many fond memories of them coming to my grandparent's home during hunting season. Mr Nolan would bring his cigarette rolling machine and I would stand by his side watching him roll them. We would also go visit them in Fairbanks between hunting seasons.
|Lynda Puakea||Parker & Waipa graves|
Aloha hou! Wanted to clean up the photos on my laptop (I store all photos on an external hard drive), so I made pages for the folks I listed in my previous message and transferred them all to you! Also, will send a photo of the row of Parker graves in Laie Cemetery. The old part of the cemetery is across a bridge and is much small than the newer section. I indicated that David, Wilder & Estrella are in the Old Cemetery... all the others are in the newer.
Have some major hula stuff on my plate right now so donʻt know when I will get out again... but I will watch for your requests... e malama pono...
|Lynda Puakea||Parker & Waipa graves|
Aloha kakahiaka e Leilani!
As you can see, I traveled up to Laie yesterday to fulfill some requests... also photographed some other Parker & Waipa graves... since those were the names of your photo requests Iʻm thinking they are also relatives of yours? I donʻt see pages for any of them... if they are yours let me know and I will post pages, add the pictures and transfer them to you...
David Nalani Parker
Estrella Parker Hottendorf
These 3 are in the old cemetery.
Stephen Parker Waipa
Mary Kalama Parker Waipa
Samson P.N. Parker Sr
Mary Choy Parker
The above 4 are in a row with the 4 Parkers you requested (Arthur Sr, Eva, Arthur Jr & Hazel) and I took a photo of that row of graves.
Look forward to hearing from you...
|Lynda Puakea||RE: Mahalo|
Always a pleasure, Leilani...
|Rose Anderson||RE: Garfield Osckel|
Garfield is my uncle.
Thanks for the information.
|Z||Parker graves at Laie Cemetery|
i stopped by there on my way to tacobell and found the grave and they are in good shape. someone very recently placed flowers and leis on the graves and i didnt want to disturb the offerings. if it doesnt bother you that the block the inscriptions than i can stop by again later this week or the next and take pictures or maybe by then the flower etc have been removed?

It's me, Kathy again Leilani. I forgot to add Robert C. Wallace should be added to Benjamin's list of children, b. 1901 and he should also be added to Lavinia Marlar Wallace children. Thanks again.
