I love doing research and helping people . But most of all I like honoring family members who have passed. What matters is honoring these people and putting accurate information on their memorials for family and friends it's a great feeling to help someone who lives across the nation , or the world vist a grave site of a loved one . I only make memorials of people I know or if a family member knows them, to me completing memorials is my goal so generations can know of there loved ones .If I can help or transfer a memorial please let me know. If a memorial has been duplicated? I'll be glad to correct what ever needs done.|
**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.

John I also wanted to thank you for the pictures of Pauline and Claude steelmon, don't remember if I told you or not but Claude is my husbands uncle therefore making Doris his cousin.

I am asking permission to use the picture of Doris in my ancestry tree, she is my husbands cousin.
I found a cemetery named Lane Cemetery on Cedar Land in Diamond City Arkansas. The name hanging over the entrance says "Lane' but this site says the cemetery says Fairview. Wondering which is the name of this little cemetery with only 3 internments.
John, Thank you for Amber's obit. I removed the living people, which I hope you understand. I added the rest to her page. Greatly appreciated. Vera

|Eileen Whisenant Shroff||RE: Starlet Potts|
You are quite welcome! I'm happy to be of service. My husband knew Starlet, as they were the same age and he grew up in Hulbert. He didn't realize she had passed away.
|Meri Jo "Parks" Clark||RE: John Lane|
You are Very Welcome. Love to help. I emailed you all the pictures I took, there is one with the saying up close for you. Hope you can read it ok. Do you know who are in the unmarked graves?
