Obituary for Ralph O. Conyers


Ralph was the fourth child born to James and Lovie Conyers on August 17, 1952.

 Ralph meant a lot of things to so many people.

The Dash Poem (By Linda Ellis)

I read of a man who stood to speak At the funeral of a friend He referred to the dates on the tombstone From the the end

He noted that first came the date of birth And spoke the following date with tears,

But he said what mattered most of all Was the dash between those years

For that dash represents all the time That they spent alive on earth. And now only those who loved them Know what that little line is worth

For it matters not, how much we own, The cars...the house...the cash.

What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard. Are there things you'd like to change?

For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough To consider what's true and real And always try to understand The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger And show appreciation more

And love the people in our lives Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect And more often wear a smile, Remembering this special dash Might only last a little while

So, when your eulogy is being read With your life's actions to rehash... Would you be proud of the things they say About how you spent YOUR dash?
