Bio and Links
Bio Photo Losing a child is the most unbearable pain there is. It is one of the most lost and empty feelings a person could ever feel. I miss and love my youngest son, Mark Allen Israels, II so much.

Words from Helen Keller "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.


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.


The Final Gift

Scatter me not to restless winds
Nor scatter my ashes to the sea
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee
Remember now the happy times
The family ties we shared
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared
Deny me not one final gift
For all who come to see
A single lasting proof that says
I loved....and you loved me

D.J. Kramer


"Those who spend their time looking for the faults in others,
Usually make no time to correct their own."
-Art Jonak


Missing my son Mark so much....I love you my number three, number one!

Louis E. Kernek
Hi I see you have a photo of Louis E Kernek's grave in Reno, NV #20646186. You said he was your great grandfather's brother. He is also my great grandfather, Julius Kernek's brother. Just wondered how we are connected. I know they had a lot of brothers and sisters. Thank you for posting his gravesite.

Hi. As mentioned in my profile, I'm very uncomfortable with posting published obits, so I've transferred management of these two memorials to you so that you can add them if you wish. Thanks. ~ Janet Ward

Could you please transfer my grandmother to me?
I didn't realize that was her and made a new one for my great-great-great grandma (born in Sweden, passed away here in NV). So I need to delete mine and add the information and photo to the headstone you found. Thank you!

The one I messed up and made (and need to delete):
