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)

Thanks very much for making the transfer and dupe deletion. You are, as always, so responsive! I was happy to be able to link my great uncle to his parents, my great grandparents. (Enjoyed your message - good to "see" you again also!)

Thank you for letting me know he does not have a Head Stone. He was in the Military so I will try to see if I can get him a Head stone through them. Thank You for all you Time.
Thank You Very Much
