Bio Photo "Dear Ancestor"
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and the date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
Walter Butler Palmer (1868-1932)

Darlene Madeline Gerholt Herriott
I looked at the Wyuka website. Darlene died in May of this year. They have her Obit on their site. In it, it says that Wyuka would be handling arrangments. Her husband Bruce Mervin and daughter Jane Ellyn share a tombstone with Darlene in the middle. The picture on Bruce's Memorial # 82287810 gives his plot information as: Plot: Sec-39 Lot-395 Sp-7. Their Daughter Jane's Memorial @70411036 give her plot information as Plot: Sec-39 Lot-395 Sp-6. Hope this helps

Thanks. I wouldn't have noticed that. I hope you don't mind I am using them on my family tree.

Speedy answer to requests!
Thank you so much for taking photos of the stones for Clay and Mabel Van Kirk. It's almost as if you were already at the cemetery when my requests came through! Your work is very much appreciated.
