"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'd 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."

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.

Judy, we have a problem here. In the current issue of the Daily Independent there is an obit for Richard DAVID Joyce, Sr. married to Lenora who died in 2009.
The Richard you added to Find A Grave is Richard M. His birth date is 6-26-1919 and death date 7-23-1987.
Richard D. Joyce was born April 13, 1928. He married Lenora Nov 8, 1946.
I think you need to unlink Lenora and Richard M. Joyce.

|Phillip Plotz, M.D.||Christopher Weaver at Westview|
I see your request for a photo on findagrave for Westview Cemetery. I am familiar with that cemetery and would be happy to look for you. Would you please call the cemetery office at 404-755-6611 to find out the section and lot numbers for your request? And please also confirm there is actually a marker. The office is reluctant to give me that information and in fact has threatened to charge me for it. They do however give it easily to relatives. The cemetery is massive and that section/lot information will help me narrow the search.

|Alton Christie||Kathryn H. Wheeler Dykas|
Dear Judy, I saw your memorial for Kathryn Wheeler Dykas 100209945 in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Baker County, FL. I also saw one for her # 49946440 in the Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in Northern Columbia County, Florida. She is a cousin from my Wheeler lineage and I was going to request links to her parents. Her mother is buried at the Oak Grove Baptist Church Cemetery in Columbia County, FL. Her father is buried in the Wildwood Cemetery in Bartow, Polk, FL. I am unsure at this time, where her husband, Theodore "Ted" Joseph Dykas b. 2/13/1927 in Cook County, Illinois d. 9/23/1992 in Wayne County, N.C. is buried. My question is this.... How sure are tou that she is buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Baker County, and not the Oak Grove Cemetery in Columbia County where her mother is buried? I have her date of birth as 16 Feb 1928 in Columbia County, Fl. Take care and God Bless. Alton Christie

You are very welcome. Glad we could help.

I received your request for Julies gravestone.
There is already one posted to a memorial (#104234726) for her. It's listed in F-A-G as the Sardis Cemetery in Cass County, Texas. This is the same cemetery as Hopewell B.C. Cemetery. Just under a different name. The sign over the gate says Sardis Cemetery. It does sit next to the parking lot of Hopewell B.C though. I suppose that's where the confusion comes in. There's a lot of those type mix-ups around here.
Probably because the Cass County TXGenWeb, & Cemeteries of Cass County, lists it as Hopewell B.C. Cemetery.
I hope this helps.
