I love people, my family and all critters big and small, with the exception of snakes....I have fostered many litters of kittens and a few birds until they are ready to fly on their own. Raising stray kittens is something I can do from my home and brings me great pleasure. I also love history, thus my enjoyment of family history.
"DEAR ANCESTOR" Poem by Walter Butler Palmer
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out,
On marbled polished 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.
Rev. 21: 3 & 4: 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
