Bio Photo I am devastated, on March 20th the first day of Spring I lost my beautiful, beloved Bailey. I can't put into words what this dog meant to me. Out of all the animals I owned in my life, Bailey was the best of the best. She was a person, she really thought she was human. So if you have time, please stop by Bailey's memorial and leave her a pretty flower. Thank you.

First of all, if you are looking for a family members grave and find a picture here, please contact me for permission to use it. Whether or not you were directed here by Ancestry or Billion graves.com. Please ask me first. Thank you

Unknown we are to each other...through time our paths have crossed...so 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."


THE CEMETERY PHOTOGRAPHER

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

Rest in God
Thank You
I really appreciate you placing a flower for our dear friend Martin McGuinness. He would be so humbled to see how he is being honoured by so many at this time. Tonight Derry City came out for a prayer vigil and some great Irish Music to honour their native son in the old Irish way of the wake. May he rest in peace.

Sorry for your Loss
Hi,
Just wanted to tell you how sorry I am about the loss of your precious fur baby. Losing a beloved pet is devastating, since they are part of our family, but I know Bailey is watching over her Mom and the rest of her family from heaven.

Take care.

Love,
Lu Ann

RE: Thank you.
You're so welcome.
I had to have my Sandy put to sleep back in 1986. There's not a week that goes by that I don't think of him. I miss him as much now as the day he left my life.
Our furbabies are such wonderful blessings in our lives. They show us here on this earth what unconditional love is.
My heart aches for you, for the loss of such a gentle soul such as Bailey.
hugs sweetie
Bev

RE: Dean Lillis
Dean was cremated and his son has not yet had his remains placed in a permanent location. It may ultimately be at the Rockville Pioneer Cemetery but at this time I am not certain.

RE: Infants Clark
I saw your notes on their unmarked grave: "I'm sorry. There isn't a headstone for these twins. It is unmarked." Dearly appreciate you looking just the same! Rella Clark isn't kin to me -- she was the housekeeper at my Grandmother's house (from the 1940 Census) -- so seeing these twins buried nearby her, according to the field survey, is just one more entirely new piece of info here. Anyway, maybe I can track down some kin who may indeed have some answers here. Thanks again so much for looking!! :-D
