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.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention I was going by the last name on the head stone. According to the information I found she remarried in 1965 to Henry Wright after her 1st husband passed away. I deleted her memorial. Thank You
|Wynn Herbert||Mamie L Carawan|
Memorial # 78485580.
I think you have an error in one of her husbands. Should be Ira T Carawan instead of Alonzo Carawan.

Sorry, the Death Certificate I have says she died on June 5,1941 of a cerebral hemmoridge.
Also says she was born 1863 and married the 22 of Jan. 1883 to Charlie Willis who died in 1936.

Thanks for the duplicate find. I check names first before adding new ones however that on slipped thru since the name wasn't correct on the first one.. Thanks again.

Hello. I accepted and I've added her maiden name to her memorial. Thank you for the link to her father, too.
I declined this edit in regards to punctuation. You requested that I remove the period after her middle initial "E." however, I add a period to all first and/or middle names where there is only a single letter in the first and/or middle name field. I do like to be consistent in my punctuation. Hope you understand.
Thank you for all your help! :)
