THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY |
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 hallowed 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.

Hi. James Long, buried in Desert Memorial, is entered twice. Your posting is dated in October of 2011, which is later than the first posting dated in September, 2011.
His wife just died and I have posted her obit and I will now link her to her husband whose posting was dated in September.
Keep up the good work of walking through that cemetery and posting the folks there.

Please let me know the info and I will be happy to go out and take care of the photos for you. Thanks, Sharon

I went today to Axley Cemetery in Loudon County, TN to search for marker for Susan Mizell. I did not find a Susan but found a marker for Vina Mizell whose burial and birth dates match the ones for Susan. I will wait for your instructions before posting the picture on findagrave.

Barbara Miller's husband, John, very recently passed away. I added his obit info to the Find A Grave memorials. I found that his wife has a memorial that is somewhat incomplete as her husband is included with no death date.
I have added Barbara to the complete obit info gleaned from the local newspaper.
I hope you will delete your addition of Barbara's memorial especially since not much information about her is included and especially since John was included before he passed away. I am not certain that adding a living person is recommended by Find A Grave.
