I wise substitute teacher once told me: There will be two dates on your headstone, one for your birth and one for your death. In between there is a dash and that, that is your life. Make the best of it, because that's all you'll ever be.
* Remember me as you pass by, * As you are now, so once was I, * As I am now, so you must be, * Prepare for death and follow me.
Remember that, cherish that. One day you will be like the tombstones you visit today.

RE: Maple Catch is that we can't create a mem pg for a stone without a name. Mem pgs are for internments. The mem pg needs deleted. If you want to you can add the pic of the back of the stone to the mem pg created 2012 for a burial - Philip Harvey Maple - http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=92601660.
RE: Edna Henderson I'll take a pic of the site with or without stone if I get a confirmed Location from the office that she's there. I've found it common to be buried with a 1st spouse when married more than once - then the wife is not buried under her last married name. I've also found stones with a spouse's name & b date on it engraved at pre-d - but they later re-married & are buried with another spouse - so they have their 1st name in 2 places with dif. last names. Ex. being at same cem. Will be next wk sometime by the time I get info to the office & give them time to look. (They have a card file system, not on computer - I was surprised to find out.)
