Enjoy genealogy and honoring the deceased by them not being forgotten. This site is a great way to do so. ****BTW if you would like to have me transfer a memorial because it is your family, just ask. Also, I DO NOT need credit for photos, so feel free to use.**** Unless they are locked in a mausoleum, we can all technically see them so I find these rules silly, personally.
A song of living
Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast.My cheeks like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed.Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I have kissed young love on the lips, I have heard his song to the end,I have struck my hand like a seal in the loyal hand of a friend.I have known the peace of heaven, the comfort of work done well.I have longed for death in the darkness and risen alive out of hell.Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.I gave a share of my soul to the world, when and where my course is run.I know that another shall finish the task I surely must leave undone.I know that no flower, nor flint was in vain on the path I trod.As one looks on a face through a window, through life I have looked on God,Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.Amelia Burr, American poet (1878 - 1968)
