DEAR REBECCA,
YOUR TOMBSTONE STANDS AMONG THE REST
NEGLECTED AND ALONE
THE NAME AND DATE ARE THERE
ON THE WEATHERED STONE
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE
IT'S NOW TOO LATE TO MOURN
YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT WE WOULD EXIST
YOU DIED....AND WE WERE BORN
YET EACH OF US ARE CELLS OF YOU
IN FLESH, IN BLOOD, IN BONE
OUR HEARTS CONTRACT AND BEAT A PULSE
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN

THE PLACE YOU FILLED MANY YEARS AGO
SPREADS OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO
WE WONDER HOW YOU LIVED AND LOVED
WE WONDER IF YOU KNEW
THAT SOMEDAY WE WOULD FIND THIS PLACE
AND COME TO VISIT YOU

YOUR GREAT GREAT GRANDSON RICK AND
YOUR GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDSON CHRIS
(Descendants of Laura Theresa Whisler, her son Alfred Clayton Walker, and his son Jack D Walker)
