Cemetery Records
of Dickens County

Tombstones softly whisper stories of our loved ones gone before us. Listen with your heart as you enter their places of rest.

There is more to recording a cemetery than collecting the names of persons. Each person has a story, and represents a history. The artwork and inscriptions on the grave markers have meaning, or at least, represent traditions carried over through the centuries. A cemetery is a memorial to our lives, remembrance of our traditions, history of our people, perpetual record of yesterday, and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. Being placed into the ground, we return to our origins.

A cemetery exists because EVERY life is worth loving and remembering   -   ALWAYS.
