Bio

My name is Donna McFarland Hansen.
If you have a family member that I have listed and you would like me to transfer their memorial to you. You need to send me the request with YOUR MEMBER NUMBER, I can't transfer without it and I'm not going to hunt it down for you. So please I need your member number for a transfer.

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. You may not duplicate any of my information in any way. Especially adding it to Ancestry. Ancestry owns Find a Grave and they have links to take you to a memorial. So copying and paste to Ancestry is redundant.
NO COPYING WHAT SO EVER!
Thank you

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 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

“The cemetery is my sense of comfort, my sanctuary in a world of darkness, the one piece of light that i have in my life.”
— Jessica Sorensen
