I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on the tombstone
from the beginning…to the end.
He noted that first came the date of birth
and spoke the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time
that they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them
know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars…the house…the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.
So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough
to consider what’s true and real
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.
So, when your eulogy is being read,
with your life’s actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent YOUR dash?

The picture still has water on it, but was very readable. If you like, I can keep an eye on that area, and when it dries up replace the picture with a dry one. Although the water-covered one has very nice color, I thought.

I am not from the Montgomery County area. I was there on Friday researching my family and took a few photos to fill requests for memorials I was able to locate. I did copy the Bluff Cemetery transcriptions that were at the Genealogy Society since I have relatives buried there. The transcriptions do not include anything other than what is on the stone, no dates.

If you are not a blood relative of Vernon Bert Whitbeck III (50232558), I would appreciate it if you would transfer his memorial to me. He was my first cousin. If you are related, please disregard this request.

It was Blanch W McMillin born in 1884 in Illinois. She and Elmer were married after the death of Carrie. They had two children together.

You recently provided additional information for Roy John Walker's memorial. Were you related? I am trying to find the location of his step-mother's grave.
