Lynch Cemetary

okay so I live in Texas now, and I came home (here to Middlesboro) for a visit. I have family and some friends buried in Lynch Cemetary. I ventured out to the cemetary and I was utterly shocked to find that the whole entire cemetary was overgrown with weeds and grass!!!! This is completely appalling that I culd not place flowers on my loved one's graves due to the grass being so overgrown! Does anybody know who owns the cemetary now? Is there a specific reason why it has went down hill so much in the last little bit? The grass was literally up over my ankles today! While I was there someone pulled up into the cemetary with a lawn mower and I thought finally, its about time! But to my disbelief it was only a family member of another deceased person buried there who had come to mow and weed-eat their families plots! I thought the owners would be responsible for the upkeep, am I missing something! Please tell me who to contact!  (Jul 23, 2009 | post #1)

My MOM

I think its really a true blessing to have had (and still have) a wonderful mother! I still have my biological mother in my life, but there is no respect there at all. Things happened many, many years ago that I will not discuss on here, but on most occasions my mother was NOT there for me or my sister. Due to her selfish reasons and decisions it has caused our relationship to be quite rocky and even on a couple of occasions we have went months (even years) without a single word to one another!!!! And before anyone starts to tell me I should be the bigger person, don't worry I am trying! But what really kills me is that my father ended up marrying a woman who obviously became my step-mother! She was the most caring, understanding, and loving woman in the world. She was there when my real mother chose not to be. (She chose an affair and left my sister and me) But we only had her in our life for a short period of time and she died of a aneurysm in her brain! And my world collasped!!!! Before she actually died in the hospital us kids were allowed to see her. Her 3 biological children went in and spoke to her. And when it was time for my sister and me to go in, the nurse stopped us and said "No, only her real kids can go in, they don't count!) How cruel of a thing to say to a 7yr old and a 4yr old! I miss my momma (as I have always called her) to this very day.....I'm 31 now! I would give anything to have one more conversation with her! Even though her time was short with us I still truly love and miss her dearly!  (Jul 22, 2009 | post #12)

answer this if white girls have the guts !!

I considered this long and hard before making a comment but after all that i feel like i have a thing or 2 to say! i am a white woman who is married to a black man. We have 5 children together. We do NOT get any kind of assistance from the government. We own our house (it is completely paid for) which is 5br 3ba and only 3yrs old. We own 3 vehicles, all of course paid for. In the 13 yrs that we have been together I have worked maybe 2 yrs, if that! My husband has never in his 36yrs on this earth did any type of drug! Not even nicotene, meaning he's never smoked 1 cigarette. He also does not nor has he ever sold drugs. He has went to school and worked his whole adult life. And he is an executive chef! My sister on the other hand...well she's never dated a black guy period. Her boyfriends/husbands have all been white. One of her husbands used to beat on her and smack her around. He did every drug he got his hands on. And my sister had to work 2 jobs and be pregnant all at the same time cause he was just too sorry! So I said all of that just to prove the aforementioned statement about trash being in every race. Its not just 1 race. FYI....I'm not bragging on our life I'm just trying to educate some ignorant people!  (Jul 14, 2009 | post #19)

Why do people talk about Lancaster like it's ghetto?

i do agree about the horrible schools.....my family moved here to lancaster 3 months ago and i hate that my children now attend these schools. we too are not from here and were clueless about moving to the area. our realtor of course had nothing but good things to say about lancaster! but as far as our neighborhood.....its very quiet and the neighbors are fairly friendly and we couldnt be happier with our house!!!! we do have a home owners association though, so they do enforce rules! lol lancaster is small but i'm glad to be in a quieter area  (Jun 18, 2009 | post #5)

yea u can relay to him that the past is the past and it wouldnt hurt him to go see our grandmother a little bit when he comes in! will is my 1st cousin and whether or not he believes it she thinks of him and misses him. she's almost 80 years old now and her health is terrible....it wouldnt kill him to put a smile on her face just by going by and saying hello!!!! i realize some of the reasons he may choose to stay away but she's old and he has the ability to a bigger person and rise above all the crap that has happened!!!!!!!  (Jun 18, 2009 | post #5)

Who all went to Ward Chapel School

PIRATE FAN: Elmer was also my favorite (and just about my only) bus driver! He was also my cousin coincidently! Anyway, Ms. Ridings used to live up in Ambleside, which was just up from my house. She was also my 2nd grade teacher! I only went there until 6th grade then on to the middle school. The middle school was on its 2nd year when I began my 1st year there. I was unaware they had torn down Ward Chapel, this really saddens me. I moved away when I was 18 and never really looked back. I do visit my family there occasionally and I am planning a trip next month...i'll go by and look at the old place! I STILL HAVE A T-SHIRT FROM 4TH GRADE (MRS. LOWES CLASS) THAT LISTS EVERY PERSONS NAME ON IT THAT WAS ATTENDING THE SCHOOL AT THAT TIME! I WILL CHERISH THAT SHIRT EVEN MORE NOW! WOW  (Jun 17, 2009 | post #172)
