I have been researching my family history for several years. I recently found findagrave.com. I became a member thinking I could have my ancestors resting places documented here where future generations of my family would have an easier time finding them then I. While searching FAG I contacted some very kind people that helped me with my research and inspired me to "pay it forward". I decided to be a volunteer photo taker to that end. If I can help just let me know.
"Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled 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, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse; entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled so many 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."
