"Will I be remembered as someone good|
Who answered many calls,
Will I be remembered as a foolish heart
Who suffered many falls.
Will I be remembered by those I've loved
Long after the last one cries,
Will I be remembered by anyone
Long after my echo dies"
From my poem 'The Hazel Wood'
I have always been more interested in the ‘What was' as opposed to the ‘What will be'. From an early age I've been fascinated with cemeteries and would often go on a cemetery safari with my dad at the drop of a hat. Most of all (and probably like most) I have the greatest interest in those that swung in the branches of my family tree before me.
Cemeteries are like libraries for those that were, unfortunately other then when they entered and exited, little is known about them outside of the family and then only for a short time, as those that knew them themselves disappear from our lives. I find this way too sad. There is a lifetime of information in the dashes and the spaces between the dates of birth and death. We need to recount and remember them no matter how short or long they occupied our lives.
Hoping to capture what I can about my family and also adding to this site the resting-places of those I do not know, so that perhaps you may find a piece of your past.
This is my FindAGrave ID for listing my family and friends, my FindAGrave ID for my listings of John & Jane Q Public is:
And remember this motto to live by:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving
safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in
sideways, cigar in one hand, Scotch in the other, body thoroughly used
up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Mark: The "O" on Aunt Mary's grave stands for Oliver. Her middle name is Elizabeth. So, Mary O. Oliver is redundant. Cousin Jean
