Thank you again to all who continue to visit my angel momma and other memorials. Your thoughtfulness is always appreciated.

If you have time, this Memorial Day, please visit my step son's Fallen Battalion Brothers of the 3/25th Marines who lost their lives in Iraq in 2005. (Virtual Cemetery 10) My step son is being re-deployed this summer. Please keep him in your prayers.

May each of you be abundantly blessed!! XOXO


~~ Dear Ancestor ~~
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 one hundred 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.

I researched at the office and confirmed that all graves located in section 300 are in Potters Field. Which the poor were buried and none have markers. I do have a photo of the overgrown field if you want me to post it.

Barbara's father Owen Colligan was my great uncle. His sister Julia Colligan Goss was my grandmother. I have the Colligan line back to their grandparents Bernard Colligan & Ann Furrell.

RE: Thomas Harrison McPhaul and wife Elsie
Absolutely you have permission to use the photo.

Unfortunately Rose Hills is the one of the largest private memorial parks with over 600,000 people interred. Occasionally, the grass over takes the markers.

RE: Daniel Webster Hartley
I do not need this memorial transferred to me. I knew Daniel in high school but had no contact with him after graduation.

Thank you so much for the information. Boyd (Blackie) was my grandfather's brother and my grandfather just passed. It's nice to know Madeleine's history- Thanks again I'll update her memorial asap.
