Bio Photo DEAR ANCESTOR,

YOUR GRAVESTONE
STANDS AMONG THE REST,
FORGOTTEN AND FORLORN.
YOUR NAME AND DATE ARE CHISELED OUT,
ON SLATE OR OLD LIMESTONE,
IT REACHES OUT TO ALL WHO CARE,
IT'S NOT 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,
OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE
OUR HEART CONTRACTS AND BEATS A PULSE,
ENTIRELY NOT OUR OWN.
DEAR ANCESTOR, THE PLACE YOU FILLED,
SO MANY YEARS AGO,
SPREAD OUT AMONG THE ONES YOU LEFT,
WHO WOULD HAVE LOVED YOU SO.
I KNOW THAT YOU LIVED AND LOVED,
BUT, I WONDER IF YOU KNEW,
SOMEDAY I WOULD FIND THIS SPOT,
AND COME TO VISIT YOU.

RE: Tigers
And the "Bless You Boys" of '84!

My first Detroit Tigers memory was actually being scared to death when I was about 3-4 years old. They'd come on TV with the roar and the Tiger logo starting out small and then filling the whole screen!! I remember running behind a chair and peeking out from behind.

I grew up in Michigan and visited a friend here in California and got to see my first Tigers game in 1973 as they were out here and they got TROUNCED by the Angels 10-1 or some such nonsense. There were four of us girls hooting and hollering for the Tigers and the guys behind us in the stands were laughing, but we didn't care! They wound up hooting and hollering with us.

Do you remember listening to Ernie Harwell on the radio...

*sigh*

Yeah, those were the days...

RE: Lutter
:-) Thank you for EVERYTHING. No, didn't think you were ignoring LOL. It's a busy season and, with the amount of memorials, etc I don't worry too much. I always say, "In the middle of genealogy, life happens..." Don't you just LOVE this site?

James and Beverly Lutter
Hi! Can you help clear up something? Beverly Rhodes Lutter is a cousin of mine and she and her husband are both listed here in TWO cemeteries with similar names. Yours is Bethlehem Lutheran Church Cemetery in Ft Wayne and memorial 120115212 (for James) just has Bethlehem Cemetery in Swan. Beverly is listed there too. HELP!

Link a memorial
Hello Roberta,

Thank you for creating a memorial page for my
Great Great Grandmother Mary Jane Harkless.

I am new to this site, but I believe to change
anything you have to contact the creator of the
page. I was wondering if you could link
Mary Jane to her husband's memorial page.
Someone made me the manager of his page.
His number is #104847879...his name is
Isaac Arnold Wright.

Also there is a page for their son...Walter A.
Wright. His number is #10487796.

Thank you for your help.

Gayle

RE: Mathias Cullen
Mathias is my gggrandfather.

His daughter, Edna Mae Cullen 1875-1895, married Charles Bell. Their daughter Gladys married George Goodmon and their youngest son, Joe Neal was my father.

So that would make us 2nd cousins twice removed?
