Bio and Links
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.

RE: Andrew Abbott
Thank you however I do not like death certificates posted on my memorials, I have had it for many years and also find are on some errors on some of them because of information from the informant. I check Missouri Digital DC for all my family and have for years. So if you don't mind please remove it from the memorial since I can not do so.
