We Are Chosen
My feelings are in each family there are those who seem called to find their ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell their story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but, breathing life into all who have gone before us.
They cry out: "Tell our story!!" So, we do.
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told my ancestors you have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us… How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for us…I cannot say.
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who we are and why we do the things we do. It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen. The folks here are bones of my bones and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses. Their never giving up or never giving in. Their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family.
With love and caring we record each fact of their existence. Because we are them and they are us. We might be born that we might remember them. So, we the chosen tell their story.

We are currently working to identify anyone buried in Westlawn-Hillcrest Cemetery Omaha NE that has served in the military. If you have a loved one buried there or know of someone, please send us a message. We place flags on the graves for Memorial Day. This project is sponsored by Centennial Masonic Lodge.
If you can send us the names, we will be sure to include them on our list to get a flag.
Thank you for the help with this ongoing project.

|Kathi Lynn King||Verneia Behanna|

|Misty & Company||A.Hawkins|
I am related by marriage to Albert Edward Hawkins, Sr's grandson, Gary Edward
Hawkins. I understand in reading your profile you are not accepting any
suggested changes although I know Albert Sr was born in England and baptized at
the Poplar Christ Church in London, England, and I have a copy of his SS Death
Index Record showing he died in Orange Co, California so I agree with the dates
you are showing.
Our page does not state we do not accept suggested changes, merely states on transfers we adhere to Find A Grave guidelines.
this person turned several memorials over to us, if you have informnation to add use the edit tab and we will be happy to add the info.

I just sent you an email in regards to my aunt dawn's memorial page you created. Have a great day.
|Roibeard53||Isaac Bonnel at First Presbyterian Churchyard|
I have to apologize for putting up a problem report on your request some time ago saying he was not buried there. He is. I came across his tombstone while photo-documenting the churchyard and remembered the request.
For some reason his inscription is not listed in the book of inscriptions the church uses as its only index of burials, but the inscription is in the book and Isaac is buried in the graveyard. Sorry this took so long. I hope it was worth the wait.
|Walking the Past||Virginia Todd|
I went ahead and transferred your cousin's memorial to you. I would always rather have family in charge rather than a stranger...thank you.
