|This photo of the Levison family was taken in 1917 in Point Pleasant, NJ where my dad Joe Leferson was born. The people, from front of the car to the back, are: My dad, David (my grandfather), Nathan, Mary, Ida, Rachel (my grandmother), Jack (Jacob, standing), Henriette, Ann, and Elsie (Elisabeth). My Aunt Kay (Catherine) wasn’t born yet.|
Your tombstone stands among the rest Neglected and alone The name and date are chiseled out On polished marble 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 and bone Our blood contracts and beats a pulse Entirely not our own Dear Ancestor, 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 this spot And come to visit you Author Unknown
