"It is indeed a desirable thing to be well descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors."


"The best history is never written. It cannot be written. If it could, it would be a record of sorrow, pain, and ceaseless struggles."


"And while one spark of life is warm
Within this mould of clay,
My soul shall revel in the storm
Of that tremendous day."

- Civil War Veteran


"Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels."


"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die." ― Thomas Campbell
Thanks to contributor Coleman for posting and allowing me to re-post;


A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, "Grieve not for me.

Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.

Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through.

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.

Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don't worry about falls.

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes we're together again.
