Bio Photo 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.

Barbara Miller FAG# 75298638
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.

DO

Hello. Recently Albert Sievert's wife passed away. I checked the Social Security info and discovered his birth date is May 29, 1923 rather than 1925 as recorded by your entry.

His memorial # is 75838164.

Thanks for adding his memorial to Find A Grave.

Desert Memorial Park
Being from the NE states and far away, would you tell me if the list of names in the Desert Memorial Park is for veterans only and if so where are the spouses buried. How could I find a list of the names on the wall or are the ones shown on the wall the same as listed? Thanks.

No rush, thanks so much. I have a new 6 mo. old Grand daughter so I know how busy you are. Congrats. Hope you have fun with all of them. I have 3 grand children 16 yr. 12 yr. & 6 mo. all from my daughter. The Boys love Little Miss Kira. She is so spoiled already.
Have a GREAT Easter.

I have been searching for some graves in the White Oak Cemetery and from the list I got from the caretaker of the cemetery there are no Shoulders buried there. Is there somewhere else I can look for you?

Hi, I am related to the NIBLETT family and saw your flower on a STACY memorial. I have a tree on tribalpages. I would like to add your email to it. You will get updates every other month on what has been done. Thanks so much for working on Find A Grave.

Mary Jane Manning, Cotton Gin Cem.
Hello Judy,
U asked for legible fotos of Mary Jane's marker.
sorry to say that the (3) I took are no better than the posted ones. Wasn't dark, full sun but the marker has since been covered in moss and other impurities. I did -not- have my marker cleaning kit with me so I will turn this request back into the system and will make an attempt later to run back there (with sunlite and kit) and take care of the request for ya.
Later, James Coston
