in a Box
Come, look with me inside
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, or when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be passed away?
Make time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be.......
The strangers in the box.

On the back of the photo
Edna Earl Miller Harrodsburg Ky Dec 24/98
(Aunt Melisa it is a Christmas gift.)
Harvey Miller husband of Melisa
R Tema Miller(Artema) mother lived in Tx 1905
My guess on this photo is Edna is the daughter of Harvey Miller
and Harvey is the son of Artema Miller(Abner was her husband)
They were my grgrgrandparents..parents of
Permelia Miller Richardson Delk. Now the question is WHAT Richardson was she married to
before Lemuel Delk??
