THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other 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...
...for visiting the "Veterans Memorial" VC on my page. It doesn't get very many flowers.

You are such a great person to do Karen's memorial for Rhonda. May God bless you everyday. I am blessed to sponsor this memorial. I have emailed Colleen the information. I have also added you to my friend list. I hope to get to know you better. I live in Redford, Michigan.

RE: Rhonda Sue's Daughter
I have checked with Missing*U*Always ~ Loving*U*Forever (#46935395) profile page for new additions. She (Colleen) is the one who listed Angel Days and Birthdays. I see she has Rhonda's niece listed under new additions. As soon as Rhonda is able to make a memorial for Karen, it can be posted on Missing*U*Always ~ Loving*U*Forever (#46935395) page and more people from our group will then know. Thanks again for letting me know. I am out of state on vacation right now and will be back to Michigan next week.

That is just terrible. I have a couple of Rhondas in my friends list. Would you give me her bio number so I know for sure which one it is. Thank you. I will put a message on my page when I know I have the right person. Thank you for letting me know.
