Photographing Highland Cemetery, Fort Mitchell, KY. Striving for accuracy in listing burials. 4,000 burials to go.

Now is easier to list what I still need to do.

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.

Hello,

Thank you for the DC & the obit. However, I need the reference for the obituary to post it on the memorial page. I will check for an obit in our local newspaper. The address of 1020 Vine Street appears to be an error--perhaps the cemetery name is an error. Does he have a monument to help verify his burial place?
Thanks, Bev W.
