WELCOME TO HOME OF OUR FATHERS™

THIS COLLECTION OF GRAVESTONES AND CEMETERIES
IS OFFERED FOR THE GENEALOGICAL COMMUNITY AND FAMILY RESEARCHERS,
FOR THOSE DEDICATED TO LOCAL HISTORY AND CEMETERY PRESERVATION,
AND LAST BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY
FOR ALL WHO STRIVE TO HONOR THOSE WHO BLAZED THE TRAIL BEFORE US

OFT IN THE STILLY NIGHT ERE SLUMBER'S CHAIN HAS BOUND ME,
FOND MEM'RY BRINGS THE LIGHT OF OTHER DAYS AROUND ME:
THE SMILES, THE TEARS OF BOYHOOD'S YEARS,
THE WORDS OF LOVE THEN SPOKEN;
THE EYES THAT SHONE, NOW DIMM'D AND GONE,
THE CHEERFUL HEARTS NOW BROKEN!

THUS IN THE STILLY NIGHT ERE SLUMBER'S CHAIN HAS BOUND ME,
SAD MEM'RY BRINGS THE LIGHT OF OTHER DAYS AROUND ME.
WHEN I REMEMBER ALL THE FRIENDS, SO LINK'D TOGETHER,
I'VE SEEN AROUND ME FALL LIKE LEAVES IN WINTRY WEATHER,
I FEEL LIKE ONE WHO TREADS ALONE SOME BANQUET-HALL DESERTED,
WHOSE LIGHTS ARE FLED, WHOSE GARLANDS DEAD,
AND ALL BUT HE DEPARTED!

THUS IN THE STILLY NIGHT ERE SLUMBER'S CHAIN HAS BOUND ME,
SAD MEM'RY BRINGS THE LIGHT OF OTHER DAYS AROUND ME.
