FLAT PRAIRIE CEMETERY

Take US Hwy 287 west from Groveton, Texas, to FM Road 1280.  Turn left and proceed to cemetery sign.  Turn right and continue three and one-half miles.  The cemetery is on the left.  Mr. L. D. Smith of Diboll, Texas, copied the markers 9 SEP 1973 and Mrs. Aaron Andrews of Friday, Texas, updated the list 25 JUL 1977.  Mrs. Lucille McQueen Jones made an update May 1990.  Ms. Mary Mitchell furnished the information on the unmarked graves.  Mr. Tommy Moore submitted a new update to the Trinity County Historical Commission in 2004.

 

TO THOSE I LOVE AND THOSE WHO LOVE ME

When I am gone, release me, let me go.

I have so many things to see and do.

You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears,

Be thankful for our beautiful years.

I gave to you my love.  You can only guess

How much you gave to me in happiness.

I thank you for the love you each have shown.

But now it’s time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,

Than let your grief be comforted by trust.

It’s only for a time that we must part.

So bless the memories within your heart.

I won’t be far away, for life goes on.

So if you need me, call and I will come.

Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near

And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear

All my love around you, soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,

I’ll greet you with a smile, and say

“Welcome Home!”
