At Oatka Cemetery in Scottsville, each headstone tells a story. Some, at first glance, stand out more than others.
Buried in the back part of the cemetery are the nearly forgotten.
"Oh, Sammy Jones. I think we were here for him."
Life stories which between the covers of birth and death are missing many pages.
"Oh, I have to tell you, it's very sad," said Sister Beth LeValley.
LeValley and a group of others from the Faith in Action Network try to make sure the stories of Monroe County's homeless, poor and indigent are told.
"It's kind of like wrapping a blanket of love, in a way, around persons that are connected to us, just because they're human beings," said Reverend Susan Hartley, Scottsville Presbyterian Church.
For two years, members have attended funerals at the potter's field at Oatka Cemetery.
"I think it's a way of honoring them and their lives. Whatever their story is," said Patricia Howard, Faith in Action Network.
Funerals are solemn occasions, meant to celebrate the lives of the departed.
"It's very powerful," said Elizabeth Osta.
But sadly, at some funerals, no one shows up.
"So you're here with somebody who you don't know, and whose story you don't know, for the most part," LeValley said.
"It's a very powerful experience to be witness to someone's life and death, and no that no one else is going to be there. We're it," said Osta.
Often, there's no way of telling who's buried where. The graves that are marked are done so with simple means.
"This is what gets me right here. The stick," said LeValley.
Some markers are so worn by the weather you can't read the name of the person buried beneath. Sister Beth wants to change that.
"We really need to get markers on all the graves, so everybody's respected."
Faith in Action is trying to raise money to pay for grave markers of those buried at Oatka.
"Part of it is for basic human dignity. To let people know we value human life. And we value those who've passed from this life to the next," said Reverend Lawrence Hargrave, Asbury First United Methodist Church.
The markers, individually, aren't that expensive. Sister Beth has found a place that can do them for $62 apiece."
Over the past two years, Faith in Action members have attended close to 40 funerals here. They say the less fortunate deserve what anyone else does: to be buried with dignity, and in the end, for their stories to be heard.
"It's a wonderful way of expressing that God did not forget them. That we did not forget them. They are not forgotten," said Howard.
