winter quarters, ne

next to nebraska we went,
to visit family past and present.
at the mormon pioneer cemetery we learned our relative is a celebrity,
great grandmother amy porter who is said to be so kind and pretty.
hers is the only original pioneer made headstone remaining,
and everyone knows where it is - even the missionaries in training.
underneath her name are the initials of her twins who also passed,
joseph and benjamin, who after their mother's death did not long last.
