Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wondered if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday, I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Hi Diane,

Thanks for letting me know that I had created a duplicate memorial. I didn't find the original memorial in my search because the burial is listed as being in the "Old Davis City Cemetery" and the transcribed obit that I used listed the burial in the "IOOF Cemetery". These cemeteries are adjacent to each other and it is very likely that he is in the newer section of the "IOOF Cemetery" where his siblings are buried, but I will try to visit the cemetery to verify that. In the meantime, I will remove my memorial and will work with the creator of the original memorial if I find that he has the wrong cemetery listed.

Thanks and best regards,

Wally S.

Hi Diane,

You left me a little puzzled there (chuckles). I finally got it though. Information has been added for her. Have a great day. Loving this weather and hoping it hangs around a bit longer.

I was able to make the trip to Illinois for calling hours for Mary Ann. It was a very quick trip. Drove up and back on Thursday and Friday. Mary Ann is at peace.
