The Promise
Robert Sexton

"Across the years I will walk with you-
in deep green forests; on shores of sand;
and when our time on earth is through,
in Heaven, too, you will have my hand."


Those We Love Don't Go Away,
They Walk Beside Us Every Day,
Unseen, Unheard, But Always Near,
Still Loved, Still Missed And Very Dear.


They continue to live in our hearts, in our memories, in Heaven.


Native American Prayer
Author: Unknown

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.


I am a child of God,
And he has sent me here,
Has given me an earthly home
With parents kind and dear.

I am a child of God,
And so my needs are great;
Help me to understand his words
Before it grows to late.

I am a child of God.
Rich blessings are in store;
If I but learn to do his will
I'll live with him once more.

Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
Help me find the way.
Teach me all that I must do
To live with him someday.



Old folks are worth a fortune:
With silver in their hair, gold in their teeth, stones in their kidneys, lead in their feet and gas in their stomachs.

I have become a lot more social with the passing of the years; some might even call me a frivolous old gal. I'm seeing five gentlemen every day.

As soon as I wake, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go see John. Then Charley Horse comes along, and when he is here, he takes a lot of my time and attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day. (He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint.) After such a busy day, I'm really tired and glad to go to bed - with Ben Gay. What a life!

P.S. The preacher came to call the other day. He said that at my age, I should be thinking about the hereafter. I told him I do - all the time. No matter where I am - in the parlor, upstairs in the kitchen or down in the basement - I ask myself, "Now, what am I here after?"


Those we love leave us with gifts that no one can take away. They gave us wisdom, friendship, advice, comfort when we needed it, and memories of their laughter and smile. These are gifts of love that are ours to keep.


I'd like the memory of me
To be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles
When life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering
Softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times
And bright sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.


You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. - Desmond Tutu

"Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Location of body unknown must be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days."

RE: Re: Memorial Names
Thank you, the issue at hand is causing someone to create a duplicate memorial unknowingly. A case in point is the correction that I sent regarding Bob Kameoka. A Find A Grave contributor may be walking a cemetery and comes upon a headstone with the name Bob Kameoka on it, and later checks Find A Grave for that name and finds no entry. They therefore create a new memorial not knowing that there is a memorial under the name of Robert Kameoka, most likely his given name but not the name that is on the headstone. I think the concept of Find A Grave is a simple one, create memorials based upon the name that appears on the headstone.

RE: Re :Susannah Clark
No, I do not have a lot number for her or her husband Fred. The only lists available that shows names and locations of who is buried in this cemetery are from people who have walked the cemetery and recorded the stones. If there was no stone, the only source would have been from a burial record or death certificate that shows the person was buried in the cemetery.
I have walked this cemetery and taken all photos by section. I look through my photos first; if I do not have a photo, I then contact a couple of people I know that have recorded this cemetery to verify that they did not find a stone either. Then I post that there is - "no stone", on the memorial so people will not continue to submit photo requests for the same person.
Karen Woods is the person who has records for this cemetery, but unless you are family she will not help you. Her phone is 765-674-7721. She is a realtor in Jonesboro, IN.
Sorry, I could not help.

Okay will do.

When you call have the (dod) Date of Death on hand.

After you get the plot, lot, range location, ask three questions:

1. Is anyone else buried in the plot;
2. Are there unused full body or cremant spots available;
3. Who owns the plot
Remember you are the only resource that can make your loved one visible again. And thatís by simply calling the cemetery office and letting me know. You wonít regret it.
