Bio Photo I just like coming here to honor, in some small way, people who passed . I say a little prayer for everyone for whom I leave flowers, and I appreciate any flowers and prayers said for my loved ones. Also I want to extend a heart-felt thank you to SSBJ who is sponsoring the page of my grandmother, Muriel Woods. <3--Peggy

For the soliders who gave their lives in service to the country...

"Let them in, Peter
For they are very tired
Give them couches where the angels sleep
And light those fires
Let them wake whole again
To brand new dawns
Fired by the sun
Not war time's bloody guns
May their peace be deep
Remember where the broken bodies lie
God knows how young they were
To have to die

Give them things they like
Let them make some noise
Give dance hall bands not golden harps
To these our boys
Let them love Peter
For they've had no time
They should have bird songs and trees
And hills to climb
The taste of summer
And a ripened pear
And girls as sweet as meadow wind
And flowing hair
And tell them how they are missed
But say not to fear
It's gonna be all right
With us down here"
--"Prayer to St. Peter" by Edwin McCain

your photo of Bud and Gerry's headstone
May I use your photo of the Colclazier headstone? They are my cousins and I haven't gotten to that cemetery yet. You are welcome to any of my headstone photos.

RE: Clemen family
Once again, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I am related to John Battus Clemen through his son John J Clemen who married Elizabeth Schmitt. Most of my information is on John J's family. I have only been piecing his parents and brothers/sisters together slowly via FindaGrave connections, so have very little on the rest of the family. If you would like John J's family information, please feel free to contact me again.

RE: Clemen family
Sorry it's taken me so long, and I need to request a little bit more time. I do believe I am related to this family, but I need to pull my large 6-inch 3-ring binder out and locate them so I can tell you how I'm related and give you more family information. I have been extremely busy and usually spend more time on family tree research in late fall through winter, but will try to get to your request in the next couple weeks.

Memorial Day 2012

"From the president of the United States and grateful Nation."

I remember the words so clearly as they handed my Mother the flag. I had never heard those words before that. As I stood there on that cold November Day, thoughts came swirling in my head. I flashed back to my fathers entire demeanor. How he organized his clothing drawers were. How he lived with honor, how military he was. How he had wanted to be in the National Cemetery and I was so against it.

It was like it was all coming together in my head, I was seeing experiences known only to those understanding military tradition.

He was part of this white sea of headstones belonging to the men and women who valiantly defended our nation. His military back bone had always been there.

He served as a Chaplin ministering to Vets at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital for years. He was on the honor guard for awhile. He gave blood routinely as he was AB negative, the rarest blood type in the world. Many nights he would get a 2 am call and out the door he would go to give blood because someone was in need. It took me years to understand what a military man is. He lived our nation and preserving it's goodness my entire life.

Memorial Day means so many different things to our society. The start of summer, picnics, it is the official end of winter where I live.

To veterans it is a time of reflection, of their courage, sacrifices, pride and loss. My son has lost 2 friends to the Iraq war, and another that came back severely injured and is struggling with his injuries and each day is a gift as those days are slipping away from him.

Memorial Day we bring into memory those that have fought for our freedom. I would like to thank you, for your Father, Son, daughter, husband, ancestor, or maybe even you, for the scarifies your families have endured to keep America out of harms way.

That as we begin Memorial Day 2012 our families remain strong and we are enduring together what our nation is all about....

"First in WAR ... First in PEACE ... and First in the HEARTS of his countrymen."
George Washington.

It should be Mattie. I had it up two years before Lois put it up, must not of looked too good at the memorials that were up already before she added hers.
I just put my picture over on her memorial since it was a better picture and I deleted my memorial.
Thanks for catching that.

RE: transfers?
Certainly not a problem. Just want to make sure the right memorial goes to the right person. I have made the transfers and glad to link them to a family member....Shirley

RE: transfers?
It will make it much easier and less likely to make a mistake if you go directly to each memorial and click on the edit button and ask there under corrections for the transfer. It assures correct memorial and transfer to the correct person. Thank you....Shirley

I just wanted you to know that my parents (Ralph and Hazel Hartley) bought the Colclazier farm in 1963. And yes they were wonderful people.

Thank you Peggy for remembering my father, Malvin Wald. He definitively would have appreciated your kindness. He was a wonderful, caring, and creative man. Today, we commemorate the anniversary of his birth.
