Inside Our Dreams
Where do people go to when they die?
Somewhere down below or in the sky?
'I can't be sure,' said Granddad, 'but it seems
They simply set up home inside our dreams.'
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 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.

|Donna V Jackson Kester||RE: Excellent Photos!|
Thanks, Jo. When I look back at my beginning photos I can see how far I've come. I truly enjoy contributing and hope I continue to improve to do better work for all those who visit this site and view my photos that I will never know. Thanks again for your encouraging words. -Donna

Hi Jo -
Thanks for the additional information on Hattie! I've updated her memorial and gave you credit for the information under notes. I've transferred her to your care (not sure if she's family or not). PS, the auto edit hasn't updated her name and DOD yet, so not sure how long that takes...

|Krista AQ Thompson||RE: Palletti and related memorials|
Thank you so much, Jo!
All I've been able to find for Lorenzena is the census record here: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XHW2-1QY
If that doesn't open for you, it has her listed as being born in 1918 in Pennsylvania to "Antonette Polletta." The household reads so:
Household Gender Age Birthplace
Wife Antonette Polletta F 38 Italy
Son Guiseppe Polletta M 19 Italy
Daughter Regina Polletta F 16 Illinois
Daughter Lorenzena Polletta F 12 Pennsylvania
I'm struggling to find a burial place for Antoinetta--I have a scrap of paper that has her passing away Sept. 28, 1972 in Poughkeepsie. The year sounds right, and the general area, but I'm trying to find an actual grave.
Thank you again--you're wonderful!

Thank you !!!
|Charles Brooks||RE: Joanna Thomas Ballard @ Bear Branch|
Hello, I for one NEVER trusts a tombstone as my very own maternal grandmother was born in 1879 BUT my mother's sister gave an incorrect date which was submitted to the Funeral Home..Death Certificate..Monument maker. But then again i have seen newer monuments put on older graves with incorrect dates simply because somebody made a boo boo somewhere.
|Donna V Jackson Kester||The Spiveys|
Thank you for the edits, Jo. You're a pleasure to work with.
Thank you for the parental links Jo. Both memorials have been linked.

|Joe Colby||RE: Ralph A Holderfield @ Meadowbrook|
Glad I could help out. The office isn't very friendly to FAGers.
|Donna V Jackson Kester||John R Henderson at Mary Love|
Thanks for catching that. I've deleted my memorial and added the pictures to John's.
