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.

RE: Burgner Decline
You're welcome. Oliver was the brother. I found the parents. The other two children were hooked up wrong too - I sent an SAC to the manager of their memorials.

Thank you so much for taking the photo of my great uncle's marker in Fairhaven Memorial Park. The photo also solved a mystery for me.

RE: Jolly
decline it, i believe it is correct. Roy and Thelma had 4 children, I found the death of two of them, one maybe alive, the other one a girl I don't find who she married.
They are Bennie Lewis born 21 July 1923 in Lewiston MT died Mar 8, 1960 in LA CA
Dorothy F born in 1924
Roy born 19 Oct 1925 in Rapid City Pennington County SD married Mary Elaine Bowdish 10 Aug 1954 in Rapid City, Penna SD
d 11 Ap 2010 in Post Falls ID
George born in 1937 he was living in Las Vegas in 2010.

RE: Jolly
Harold and Roy are Cousins! Not Brothers, Harolds parents are Charles Jolly and Helen Garlick Jolly. You have it right, I think I jumped the gun on the name change. Ok now I understand what it all means!

WE have
another problem. the parents for Harold are the same as for Roy, they need to be deleted, Harold is not a brother to Roy, he would have to be a twin! As far as I know no twin!
Also, is the birth date you have for Harold correct, I mean Roy's birth date is Oct 26, 1900 and yes I think he was married to Thelma, they are in the 1940 census in Pennington County.
