I live in Los Angeles, CA.
The photos I have taken are a gift to the community and as such may be used by any person whether or not I am credited.
I will transfer NON-family memorials according to Find-A-Grave rules.
I will be more than happy to update memorials.
~A Poem for our Ancestors~
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you
~Walter Butler Palmer
