nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
I have been remiss concerning writing about Grove Street but today I feel I need to give Tribute to two special people from the Cemetery - Bill and Joan Cameron. Two people who dedicated themselves to the preservation of the history of New Haven. Both worked unending in the cemetery for over 40 years. In tribute to them both I would like to put their life works into a poem:
R. Lee Sharpe’s (1870-1950) poem
“A Bag or Tools”:
Isn’t it strange that princes and kings
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings
And common people like you and me
Are builders for all eternity?
To each is given a bag of tools
A piece of clay and a book of rules
And each must fashion ere life has flown
A stumbling block or a stepping-stone.
Thank you Bill and Joan
