Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy contributing to Find A Grave. It's a great way to create a permanent memorial of our family, friends and loved ones.

I will be happy to transfer memorials to a family member or friend. If you find mistakes or duplications, please let me know so I can correct them.

God Bless You All,

Please stop by and visit my Dad and Mom and leave flowers if you like.


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.

Wade Cameron Jones
Hi Vera!

I am trying to determine whether or not the Wade Cameron Jones (Find A Grave Memorial# 27194924) is my 2nd great uncle. Was there a headstone at the cemetery with his death information on it? If so, were there any other details that might help me? If there wasn't a headstone, how did you go about finding his death date? I would be so grateful for any insight that you can share with me.

Edison Dewitt Thompson
Hi Vera,
You do such great work!!! I admire your stamina. I've tromped through graveyards looking for just my family and it's tiring and tediou work. You've made so many contributions!. You are amazing!

Just thought that I would give you a bit more information to add to Edison Dewitt Thompson; he was married first to Lorraine Helen Wayland b. 18 Jul 1920 in Philadelphia, PA and died 02 Mar 2011, in Duarte, Los Angeles County, California and had two children, Marion Annette Thompson b. 21 Sep 1942 in Jacksonville, FL and Donald Edison Thompson b. 15 Oct 1943, in Nacogdoches, TX and both are still living. They are my half sister and brother.

All the Best,
Julio Orozco
