Bio Photo 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.

Kaiwi
Aloha e Leilani,

Photographed your Robert Kaiwi today and since there were 2 other Kaiwiʻs buried at Hawaiʻi State Veteranʻs Cemetery, David & Charles, I added photos to their pages, too... just in case they are also your people...

Regards,
Lynda Puakea

Harry Haanio Jr & Harriet P Kaheiki
Aloha e Leilani,

I just posted pages for Harry & Harriet... transferred Harry to you because I saw that you had posted a page for another person with that same last name so Iʻm thinking Harry is ʻohana... is Harriet your ʻohana, too? They are buried right next to each other... so sad to lose babies... if she is ʻohana I will transfer to you... let me know...

RE: Tombstone pics
Yes, be my guest; use my photos as you see fit. I post 'em to be used, and identifying me as the photographer - one way or the other - isn't a concern. I just wish they could have all been masterpieces, but that's certainly not the case.

By the way, I haven't seen Edward Kau at Makiki, but I'll keep looking as I continue photographing there. David.

This memorial is in twice (both have the same headston) but are in different cemeteries.
#125373035 Unionville Cemt
#74278642 West Liberty Cemt

One has her familly listed and one her husband. They should be combined and one removed if the grave was moved it should be noted as moved.

I dont see how they both have the same headstone?

Please let me know which one is right?

photos!
Aloha Leilani!! You are more than welcome to use photos I take anywhere at any time for anything you want. No need to even give me credit unless it is something you personally want to do. I like to keep information like that, but at the same time I have always felt that family information and photos and is meant to be shared rather than stored, and quite frankly I don't mind if I never get the credit, as long as it is shared with as many people as possible who are part of the family of the deceased person. 😊 Malama pono, and good luck on your compilation project! I'm sure it will be a beautiful treasure!!!
