AND PLEASE don't add nasty comments in the flower section of the memorials. If you have a question, please email me or add a note down below in the note section of my bio.

Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have as we visit one to another...know as family you shall never be lost.

I consider Cemeteries to be outdoor museums.
I am proud to be referred to as "The Family Historian."


Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

Thank you very much for recording the final resting place of this baby. I always wondered what happened to him.

RE: Hello
Yeah -- what's up with you? Been traveling alot and working on scrapbooks in between trying to play catch up with old emails from back in 2011! Trying to clear out my inbox. Slow process, but because of that, am working on some of my older memorials.

What have you been doing of late?

Thank you very much for checking on John's marker (you said the cemetery office verified there was no marker). I do appreciate your time in this; unfortunate there was no marker to photograph. I have removed my request for his photo, since it is unlikely that another researcher would discover different findings. You did well.
