Bio Photo Some of the gravestone pictures that I've entered are of people I don't know. I've entered them to help others. If you'd like me to fix, add to, and/or delete any of your family members please email me and I'll make the change as quickly as possible. If you would like me to transfer an entry to you, please let me know. Please request transfers and updates or corrections through the Suggest a Correction function so that I make sure I update the correct entry.I am also a photo volunteer. I am willing to take photos of headstones just about any where I may travel. Please feel free to use any of my photos in your family trees. Jack

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.

Ernestine Tarpley McColl
Hi Jack - I just accepted your edit to add Ernestine's maiden name. I also added the obituary information you had placed with your token. I'm afraid Find A Grave frowns on adding information such as that when leaving tokens so If I can you to remove that information by deleting that token and adding a new one it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I added your addition to Martha's site and uncovered some more, now in her and husband David's bios. I'm not related at all, so if you're interested, am glad to transfer them to you. Best,
