"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. -Author Unknown

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

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. -Author Unknown

(Until We Meet Again)
We think about you always,
We talk about you still.
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.
We hold you close within our hearts,
And there you will remain.
To walk and guide us through our lives,
Until we meet again.
