Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
In this field of green.
The name and date are chiseled out
For all the world to see.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died long before I was born.

Yet we are of one, you and I,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the life you lived
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Wylie, I posted the obituary and also linked him to his parents and his siblings.

Thank you for all the hard work you do on findagrave.

Yes, my dad was married to a Gladys Jones prior to my mom.
You can contact me at since I rarely check this email.

RE: Re: Christine Audrey Foster Bidwell
Great! Do you have any suggestions on where to begin looking for marriage certificates on some of these?
Thanks so much!

Christine A. (Foster) Bidwell
Hello Wylie, I am new here, and am following up on some disjointed family tree research with a very old trail... Do you happen to know if Althea Coe Foster had a daughter? Her name was Christine A. (Foster) Bidwell b. 1927 d. 1988. My member # is: 49128266.
Hope to hear back from you. Thanks much!

Photo on Tillman Franks memorial page
Mr. Blackwell, Carolyn Franks Browning, daughter of Tillman Franks, just pointed out to me that the photo you added to her father's memorial page at this link is actually Lefty Frizzell and not her dad. Since you added it, I don't think I can remove it, so can you take it down from the memorial I created? Thanks!
