******************************************
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.

I'm pretty sure Donna is still alive. But, I will try to get a photo tomorrow during my morning stroll.

Your Dockter memorials
Hi
I've been sending you a few edits tonight on different memorials.. always copy myself so I can check - nothing is showing up on my end so wondered if you are getting them? or maybe there is a "glitch" somewhere in the system Peggy

There is a small cement marker buried under the grass at this location and has the name on it but it is not a headstone, only a marker. I would suggest you or a family member getting in contact with the cemetery to see about having a headstone purchased for your family member.

RE: Forest Cemetery
Re photo request for Anna Rosenau. I didn't make a photo request for Anna Rosenau but I did put my own photo of her stone on the memorial.
BTW, I am from Portsmouth, Virginia also, left in 1970 but still have family there.

Thank you. I haven't looked through the rest of the family info yet. I am new to this so it will probably take me some time. Yes, Jacob and Justina are my husband's grandparents.

Jerry,

Your aunt's memorial has been transferred to you as requested.

So very sorry for your loss! Pretty neat that she was 100 years young.

Best wishes,
High Plains

Memorial #26044288. I am new to FindAGrave and appreciate all the work you have done.
Justina Fischer Zweigle is my husband's grandmother. The birth and death dates are accurate however she was married in Parkston, Hutchinson, South Dakota in 1893 and not born there. She was born in Tarutino, Bessarabia. She emigrated to the U.S. with her sister Carolina, leaving all the family behind. Her father and mother are Wilhelm and Wilhelmina Gierling Fischer. Their children were 7 girls ... Dora, Caroline, Elizabeth, Rosanna, Louise, Sophia and Justina and one boy, Wilhelm.
