Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
Lord Byron, (1788-1824)

Happiness keeps you Sweet...Trials keep you Strong...Sorrows keep you Human...Failures keep you Humble...Success keeps you Glowing...But Only Friends and Faith keep you Going.

No matter which way you bend him,

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For loved ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

WILL AND TESTAMENT

WHEN I DIE I WILL NOT END
THO MY BODY TURNS TO DUST.
I'LL TRAVEL WIDELY THROUGH THE STARS
WITH FEWER CARES, I TRUST.
SO FIND A PLACE TO LAY MY BONES
MY MUSCLE, HAIR, AND SKIN.
THEN PLANT A TREE ATOP MY CHEST
FOR LIFE TO START AGAIN.
LET HER ROOTS ENTWINE MY RIBS
AND TEAR APART MY COFFIN.
IT MATTERS NOT THE LEAST TO ME,
I'LL BE IN HER BRANCHES, LAUGHIN'.
WHEN I'VE PUNCHED MY TIME ON EARTH,
WITH NO MORE NEED OF CLOCKS,
I'LL GO TO FIND THE NEXT NEW ME.
PLANT THIS LAST ME IN A BOX.

RE: Bertha Reiswig
I would be more than happy to transfer her. Would you have any objections to leave my work as is, and add anything if needed?

RE: Bertha Reiswig
I gleaned the information from ancestry, most of it from your tree. I did just now put up the picture of her plot if you want to remove your picture. Did you ever find the resting place of the parents, siblings or children I have not?

I located Bertha at Evergreen, but she has no stone. I posted her, memorial #139656698.

RE: Emil Filler
Ok, (cringe). It is better than no photo but my standards are a little higher I guess. All of my photos are for the families of the deceased so please do use them. You can note that it's from find-a-grave as the source. I will take a better one when I get the chance-promise. That delicate photo plate was a little scratched up most likely from the heavy diggers and it's only going to get worse since the grave is by the street with lots of empty graves in the center, So I'd like to get a nice close-up of it too in case it's destroyed.

Hi Jerry, sorry the condition of this headstone was not the best. I brushed off as much of the dirt as would come off. The rest of it was iced in there pretty well in the inscription and on top. I'll try to remember to get a better one in the spring after it has thawed out and the rains have done their magic.
