Bio Photo Please feel free to use any of the headstone pictures that we have posted...no credit is necessary. A recently read quote states, "It is amazing how much people can get done if they do not worry about who gets the credit." There is so much work to be done and so few doing the work. So, with that in mind...Let's get it done!

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others 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.

RE: Boggs
Sorry about sending you the correction, I didn't realize that Melville was named after his mother! My ancestor Sarah Kline was married to Alexander Boggs, which was why I was looking at the memorials. Thanks for clearing this up for me and again, sorry about sending that unneeded correction! Marla

Merry Christmas. We were looking for the Bishop Sellers that Henry Eyring told about at Christmas devotional. Would you know this is the same person?
