Bio

I love Genealogy. I know some of my friends think I am weird, since I enjoy visiting cemeteries. Those buried in cemeteries walked and lived as we do today. They must not be forgotten. My husband, Billy, is my biggest helper. He is a great photographer.

"Remember me in the family tree my name, my day, my strife; Then I'll ride upon the wings of time and live an endless life."Author: Linda Goetsch~~

Dear Ancestor"Your tombstone stands among the rest neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished stone. It reaches out to all who care. It is to late to mourn. You do not know that I exist. You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh and 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 how you lived and loved. I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot and come to visit you." ~Walter Butler Palmer"

Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life." ~Albert Einstein

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 hallowed 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.
