Note to all:

When you see a star followed by a cross on a tombstone. It means this person was a baby that was born & died on the same day.
That is why there is only one date on stone.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say. But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.

Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night, That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through. God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you. It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on. There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years.
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb; But together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too; that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain; then you can say to God at night..."My day was not in vain." And now I am contented...that my life was worthwhile. Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low; just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When you're walking down the street and you've got Me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when it's time for you to go...from that body to be free. Remember you're not're coming here to Me.

RE: John William Woods
I don't know if there is a marker for Doris now, I know there wasn't one when I took the photo of John's marker as we photographed all markers in that cemetery at that time.

Thanks for sending the nice obit for Robert which has now been posted on his memorial.
I have no relative connections so if you do and would like a transfer of his memorial, or any others I have posted, please feel free to ask.

Hi Cindy,
You contacted me about Mary Ella Morse, daughter of Samuel Morse. She was my grandmother. She died in Tucson, AZ, 10 Mar 1985. She was cremated. I have her death certificate and other information if you are interested. Where does she fit in your family tree? You can message me at llsco1 at yahoo dot com.

RE: Margaret Anna Corbin Stephens
OK, here's the situation: My g-grandmother WAS buried, along with her husband William Alva Stephens and at least three of her children (Susan Lavannah, Nelson and Effie Jane Stephens Smithart) at Prairie Center Cemetery, Packwood. I have photos of the central Stephens stone with surrounding smaller, matching stones for each of the individuals. Have no idea who has is in the other location, but the rest of Margaret Annas' is at Prairie Center and I think she should be listed with them. If you are on Ancestry and search for Margaret Anna/Annie Corbin Stephens you get the old, original record summary for g-grandmother, but when you look at the memorial you get this other woman, Margaret Emma. Wrong. Have also left a message for Vern-O; have no clue as to how to fix this. Nancy K Ash
