no longer works as I expected
I am attempting to redo the index pages
this manual search works, if you
copy/ paste the words in blue into your browser then add your name of
interest to the end ie:
LIFE WAS A NEW SONG
Live, Love and Laugh always...
Obituaries can provide not only the name of the
person and the date and place of death,
but also information about
relatives, military service, employment, personal interests and
achievements, religion, places
in which the individual lived, and place
of burial. Some obituaries include photographs.
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 exist
You died years before 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.
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 your grave,
And come to visit you.

Laugh as we
always laughed at the little
jokes we enjoyed together. Pray,
smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household
word that it always was. Let it
be spoken without effect,
without the trace of a shadow on
it. Life means all that it ever
meant. It is the same as it ever
was; there is unbroken
continuity. Why should I be out
of mind because I am out of
sight? I am waiting for you, for
an interval, somewhere very
near, just round the corner. All
is well.” ... Unknown
