The Promise
Robert Sexton

"Across the years I will walk with you-
in deep green forests; on shores of sand;
and when our time on earth is through,
in Heaven, too, you will have my hand."


Those We Love Don't Go Away,
They Walk Beside Us Every Day,
Unseen, Unheard, But Always Near,
Still Loved, Still Missed And Very Dear.


They continue to live in our hearts, in our memories, in Heaven.


Native American Prayer
Author: Unknown

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.


I am a child of God,
And he has sent me here,
Has given me an earthly home
With parents kind and dear.

I am a child of God,
And so my needs are great;
Help me to understand his words
Before it grows to late.

I am a child of God.
Rich blessings are in store;
If I but learn to do his will
I'll live with him once more.

Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
Help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do
To live with him someday.



Old folks are worth a fortune:
With silver in their hair, gold in their teeth, stones in their kidneys, lead in their feet and gas in their stomachs.

I have become a lot more social with the passing of the years; some might even call me a frivolous old gal. I'm seeing five gentlemen every day.

As soon as I wake, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go see John. Then Charley Horse comes along, and when he is here, he takes a lot of my time and attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day. (He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint.) After such a busy day, I'm really tired and glad to go to bed - with Ben Gay. What a life!

P.S. The preacher came to call the other day. He said that at my age, I should be thinking about the hereafter. I told him I do - all the time. No matter where I am - in the parlor, upstairs in the kitchen or down in the basement - I ask myself, "Now, what am I here after?"


Those we love leave us with gifts that no one can take away. They gave us wisdom, friendship, advice, comfort when we needed it, and memories of their laughter and smile. These are gifts of love that are ours to keep.


I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles
When life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering
Softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.


You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. - Desmond Tutu

W A Gallion memorial
Thank you for the memorial pictures of William Gallion and his wife Marie.

I was in the process of getting the old "no cemetery 142181429" entry moved into the Grangeville Cemetery. Would you mind putting your pictures on the 142181429 memorial and remove the new memorial you created? We have all William's links to his family on the old one.

Thanks for you help,
Gallion, William Andrew 142181429

Hi JC,
I saw the discrepancy in the CADI and was going to verify things. Now it's done. Thanks. I added a note to her page.

Hi again,
I just looked more closely at Clarences' marker and found that Frances is his and Nell's daughter. I made a page for her and linked them all.
I think I'm done now. Thanks again for the photo which got me going on this.

Just saw that his first wife was Frances. Nell Lewis was his second wife.

Hi JC,
Thanks so much for the marker photo. It reminded me that I needed to locate his wife Nell (which I just did). I just sent in an edit to you for linking them.

Hello! I tried to fulfill your photo request but the cemetery staff could not find a record for anyone by this name. The person who created his memorial probably assumed the location based on an obituary. Unfortunately, if that is the case, the obit was wrong. Or in the alternative, sometimes the body is cremated at Inglewood, but the remains taken elsewhere, so it is possible that services were held Inglewood.

I have notified the memorial manager of this. I hope the location is found someday. Sorry this was not a positive outcome.
