Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Fairview, Itawamba County, Mississippi. I enjoy genealogy and search for photos of memorials for my own family across the globe. I reciprocate the effort locally for others who are looking for their loved one's memorial. I enjoy this site to leave virtual flowers for loved ones when unable to visit them in person.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
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.

Edward S.Simpson-1886-1917
just visited the site to find details of my grandmothers' brother who was killed in Basra , Iraq -1917 -[they were obviously having trouble in those days!]

Read the poem and wept quite unashamedly -it is so poignant.

I am aged 72 and lost my dear wife 5 years ago to breast cancer -so I appreciate such eloquence!

RE: What a wonderful surprise
Greetings Rebecca,

You are very welcome. There have been so many people that have helped me on Find A Grave and filling photo requests when I can is just my way of paying it forward.
