Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for over 40 years - it is a real passion of mine and I am very happy helping others discover their ancestors! This is a FANTASTIC SITE and it has already filled in some blanks for me. Please let me know if I can help anyone. ~ Catherine

**************************************************

DEAR ANCESTOR

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and 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'd 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.

Hello- the "Per" means that person submitted that edit request. So the reference to her parents came from that Find-A-Grave member.
