My dear father could and would do whatever was necessary for our welfare. I started school in Smithfield, Utah. I remember the death of my Grandmother Meikle. I also remember the elk that were on the Smithfield Park, I used to love going to visit Uncle Foster and Aunt Bell Gordon, and all our cousins. Also the little store that they had, on their place. Also the huge barn and lots of cows they had on their place. We used to visit Uncle Harvey and Aunt Zella and family. Also Uncle Joe and Aunt Temp. Uncle Jim and Aunt Lou and their families. In the spring of 1926 we moved to Manderfield, Utah. Where Daddy bought a farm and a

  • 9. Your tombstone stands 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 and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our heart contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled so many years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you.
