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: H. Lester Grant
Chris, I posted the new photo so you can remove your original one. The first one I took in the afternoon had the same look as yours, so went back another day when the sun illuminated it in the morning and took another photo. It had to be taken between 11:00am and noon. You can see the narrow band of sunlight in the building photo. Also made a brightness and contrast adjustment. Thanks for you helpful assistance, Leon

Chris, Hope you don't mind my trying to get a more readable photo. I went out yesterday afternoon, but with the plaque in the shade, mine didn't come out any better. I determined that if I try another photo between 11:00 and 12:00 when the sun is shining on it, the lettering will show up better. So I will try again this week. Regards, Leon

RE: Martha Steen Greene
Just a quick update. I looked at the marker you posted and I'm wondering if the year of death isn't 1987 instead of 1997. Looking at the picture, it could be either. I think it is 1987 because I found a California death index listing that states she died on DEC 8 1987. Here is the URL for that info:
