Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy contributing to Find A Grave. It's a great way to create a permanent memorial of our family, friends and loved ones.

I will be happy to transfer memorials to a family member or friend. If you find mistakes or duplications, please let me know so I can correct them.

God Bless You All,

Please stop by and visit my Dad and leave flowers if you like.


By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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 hollowed 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.

Laura J. Saunders Colson #27171360

I noticed in your picture of my great, great grandmother's, Laura Jackson Sanders Colson, tombstone the death year is different from what is listed on the memorial. Is there some way to check your records and let me know which death year is correct?

I would gladly take this memorial if you want to transfer it.

Hello Veramy , I would like to maintain grandmothers memorial page as I will be adding pictures and family links. I am heading to Edisto Island, SC to visit and photograph several Mikell graves. I have a lot of Mikell info in my tree but still have a lot of work there.

Thank you
What a beautiful story on your father's page. You make it so easy to picture the way things were. He sounds like a wonderful man.
