**THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN (via Alice Huitt Preston)
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.

Thank you so much for taking the time to go out and photograph this gravestone. The contributor who posted her memorial has got it in a mess! I will try to get her to change it. Thank you for helping to straighten this out.
Thank you so much. I forgot about the bad weather there, we just had that here in NM where I live and now it's clear but still chilly. Thank you Debra

I asked for a photo of original headstone that is attached to this memorial but it is too small and does not enlarge. Is there someway you could get that for me? Thank you Debra

Could/would you school me on cousin 7 times removed. What is 7 times removed or what does it mean. I've heard people say twice removed but not sure I understand that. Maybe my email would be best to discuss this. Thanks Ron
|Chet Walker||RE: Chester Summers Photo|
I did not know about her so was able to add her to the family tree.

Thank you so much for the photo.
May I have your permission to use on my ancestry.com family tree?
