Words are things; and a small drop of ink
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

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.

Chester E and Martha M Thorsten
Hi Jerry, I think your Riverview Cemetery photo request may actually be at Roselawn Cemetery, please check these:
Chester E THORSTEN, 1909 to 1989 #78793913
Martha M THORSTEN, 1915 to 1970 #78793914

If this is your relative, I think the error might have arisen because the name is not spelled Thorstein.

Regards, Kathy

Martin & Elizabeth Kesselsel
Hi,
I checked in the Dickinson Cemetery database to find Martin & Elizabeth's grave-site. There is a large Kessel gravestone and small markers for Theresa & William Kessel. The plot where Martin is supposed to be buried is just an empty plot. There is also an empty plot between William & Theresa; I don't know if that would be for Elizabeth or not. Her name is not listed in the database as even being buried in Dickinson. If you are sure she is there I will put a photo of the large stone on her's also. Cheryl S

Ostrom family tree
Hello Jerry my name is Lorraine Ostrom. I am doing genelogy research and have traced my husbands family back to Olaus Omundson "Ole" Ostrom. he would be my husbands great grandfather. the line connection is through John Ostrom (listed in the obituary as Ole's son) from Drumheller, AB. John had a son named Bernie who is my husband Ray's father. I was so excited to find this as we had hit a dead end. Wondering where our family tree overlaps? We live in Biggar, Saskatchewan. My email address is lostrom@sasktel.net if you would like to connect. I am curious if you have been able to trace anyone that is still alive and related in Norway. I to am hoping to include pictures of headstones, place of burial, what these folks did for a living ect. I find the stories of there lives most interesting. hoping to hear from you

RE: Goodrich Cemetery
Thanks, Jerry. These are my husband's ancestors. Though we live in Maine now, we traveled to North Dakota last summer and I was lucky enough to have time to visit Goodrich and pay respects to the many "residents" of Goodrich Cemetery that I know so well through my research. I appreciate all the work you have done with this cemetery.

Reiswig
Roy Reiswig (son of Ralph and Esther Reiswig)of Beaver, OK was a very close friend of my wife. They attended college together. There was a genetic Alzheimer's problem in this family that took 50% of the males, Roy being one. Are you connected to this family.

RE: Lodi Memorial Cemetery
You are most welcome. It was my pleasure. Mamie is next to a relative but I'm not sure how they are related. Hers was unmarked so I gave you the next best thing, a photo of her unmarked grave next to his stone.
