Special "Thank you" to everyone that takes the time to send edits, corrections or added information. There have been many times I accept the edit but failed to get the name. Just know your time is appreciated.

On the flip side, if you have taken the time to add a gravesite photo, please take an extra minute to send any extra information you see from the stone, e.g., full names or dates. Thanks!

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.

Charles Robert Deer, USMC, WWII
Hello, Diane.
To answer your edit suggestion query, YES!
I will be very pleased to add Charles' obituary and service information including awards and decorations. Charles was the husband of one of my cousins. I'm very partial to the military members in my family lines.
Please feel free to email the information directly to me. Address on my bio page. Thank you!
Best regards!

RE: Shirley Mann update
Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery in Naperville, DuPage County IL. Thought I sent a edit suggestion, but maybe it didn't go. Our internet is not reliable when it is hot & sunny out.
