Cockrell Cemetery

Transcribed by Deanna Heneghan
This was the most beautiful cemetery I have ever seen.
It was old, hidden, and off the beaten path
You wouldn't even know where it's at, unless someone pointed it out to you.
I had taken pictures of it, oddly though, none were on my digital camera.
Many shades of green, hidden in and surrounded by trees... with a carpet of moss all around like in a fairy tale... it was quiet and I was taken back by its peacefulness.
Quite a few of my family is buried here.
I hope it stays forever.
