THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

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 hollowed 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.

RE: Margaret Wise
Thanks. I've uploaded the photo. I see I whiffed on the name - it's Mary Elizabeth. Rushing too much this morning I guess. I also found an ancestry.com death record for her and a Raymond m Annie on the 1930 census in LA. Possibly the parents, I guess.

Death Date Error
I noticed that your listing for Dixie Elizabeth Thacker at Fairhaven Memorial Park, Santa Ana, CA has an incorrect death date listed, as compared to the head stone photo. It should be 05 Apr 1995.

RE: Elizabeth Jones
It looks really good. I found a photo I liked better (better color balance), so I replaced the other one too.
