Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Memories of You" was a pop song published in 1930 (lyrics by Andy Razaf; music by Eubie Blake). It was best popularized by the incomparable Benny Goodman and his orchestra. My Dad used to practice it at home on his clarinet when I was a kid, though I never knew what it was called back then, and didn't know the lyrics. Now every time I hear that tune, it brings back my memories of those happy days, and memories of my father and other loved ones gone ahead.

It's been said that no one is finally dead until he is forgotten. Another thought along these lines runs: You are not really dead until after your name is spoken aloud on earth for the last time.

At every gravesite, no matter how old, how poorly marked, how long forgotten, there lies the memory of a precious life lived with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a story worth telling and remembering. Each tombstone marks a significant day of human sorrow. And around most every tombstone was once gathered the unbreakable force of love.

Findagrave and its volunteers are here to respect those memories and to help keep those individual stories and names alive, whenever possible. Each memorial made here is for one more person who is gone but not forgotten.


Turn Again To Life
by Mary Lee Hall

If I should die and leave you here awhile
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort others than mine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

RE: Joseph Resch
Thank you so much for editing the memorial of Joseph Resch per my email to you. Joseph is my grandfather, and I felt it important to correct any errors, and to add his obituary from the newspaper.
Your contribution to the memorial is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

I Andrew a relation to you? Have you seen his cemetery memorial page 168558271?

You created your memorial first but do not have it attached to a cemetery. The memorial page I created is in Assumption Cemetery and a picture has been posted against it.

Would you like to combine yours with mine so we don't lose the picture. Then I will gladly transfer the memorial page to you.

Open for suggestions to eliminate the duplucation

RE: Mary Leach(Valley Cemetery, Londonderry,NH)
Hello again:
I think I understand the confusion on the Mary Leach photo. According to copies of my printouts for this request,Findagrave member MRC #47652963 requested this photo on 10/18/2016 and I subsequently fulfilled that request. I have no relation to this individual for genealogy purposes and because MRC requested it, I would assume a transfer(with her knowledge) might be appropriate.

Hamlet Research
An observation on your research and 2 record suggestions.
Your memorial for Dustin Hamlett is accurately transcribed from Willeys, but 2 records with dates of death which are exact suggest his name could have been Justin. The 2 records of death reflect a person who was in the Civil War and died of non battle related issues. He was from Londonderry, NH.Although Willeys probably took information from the gravestones, there is no stone at Valley except Ellen L a child possibly his daughter, who may have been born 1 month before his death. The death record also shows a relative with first initial of "E:(Ellen?).
Here are the two records:
