I have a daughter buried in San Diego, California, & someone there was kind enough to get a picture of her headstone for me. It touched me so deeply... |
I recently returned to my hometown, the Tri-State area of Ohio, WV, & PA. The ancestry I'm researching are Nease, Wright, Zirkle, Camp, Allmon, Seevers, Cheek, Higgins, Bishop & Shriver.
Please feel free to use any picture that I have contributed in any manner you deem appropriate.
Prayer for Genealogists
Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.
~by Curtis Woods
I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
from the beginning…to the end.
He noted that first came the date of her birth
and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time
that she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars…the house…the cash
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.
So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough
to consider what's true and real
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we've never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.
So, when your eulogy is being read,
with your life's actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent YOUR dash?

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 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.

|MaLisa Fender Rembowski||RE: Brooke Greenberg|
Thank you. I have received several not nice at all messages about my "duplicate".
I did search her first and last and just her last name before making a page and there wasn't one. I always double check first.
I had this happen a little while ago with a different page and looking at the other contributor's page. The date it was made was two years before the person passed away.
So who knows what happened but I know there wasn't one before I posted mine.....
Memorial #52463142 is not my posting
If I can help in any way let be know.
|J M||Common Zirkle Ancestors|
I just saw your message (haven't been on in a bit!) so wanted to say hello and thanks for your message!
Isn't the Zirkle family fun! :)

I am so sorry that I didn't see that you had posted the picture before now. Thank you so much! Her sister only remembered the dates and the cemetery. I can't wait to show her the picture! Would you mind if I copy and give it to her?
|Dr. William McDonald||Volumes|
Sounds good. I'd be glad to forward the volumes to you, Myra. Perhaps tomorrow.
|Dr. William McDonald||your message|
Perhaps you'd like to have copies of some of my unpublished volumes. I could send them to you by email if you're interested. Let me know.
I don't think I know her. I'm putting the photo on his memorial.

It would be a privilege to be on your findagrave friends list.
|Paula||RE: Hunter Mosher|
I will try to get over to the cemetery, today or tomorrow for a photo. I could take some flowers. What's his parents names? I may know them. I grew up on Thomas rd. in Mottville.
