The Emigration of British Children to the Colonies
Unspeakable Blessings!
by Angela Sherry

"Be kind to an orphan child, and always be his friend, You know not how he suffers, or how he'll meet his end. He's all alone, no family, that he can call his own. There is very little prospect, that he'll ever get back home. You and I got lucky, we knew our Mum and Dad. It could have been so different, had we been a Fairbridge lad."
Author Angela Sherry, 2012

Brothers George Henry Potticary and Charles Potticary and sister Gladys Eveline May Potticary Swain

"Dear Ancestor
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 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."

Author - Walter Butler Palmer (1906) (Find A Grave #87759950)

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.

To live in the hearts of others, is to live forever. Please leave a flower and/or note on memorials you visit.

"Live Your Dash"
**** **** **** **** **** ****
Every memorial represents a life and has meaning. The "dash" between birth and death dates is who they were. Every life has a Story. A final resting place is a sacred space that friends and family members will visit for generations to come not only to grieve but also to honor and remember. Each time I create a memorial I hope that it may someday provide valuable information to a genealogist or comfort to a loved one.

I am bound to them, though I cannot look into their eyes or hear their voices. I honor their history. I cherish their lives. I will tell their story, I will remember them. -Unknown Author
