Re: GOD'S GARDEN By Melissa Shreve
Sometime in 1997 Jerri Walsh contacted me about using my poem on her website. (I had posted it on my personal website with my Genealogy information and a photo of my grandmother for whom the poem had been written.) I agreed to let her as long as I was given credit. Over the years people have stolen my poem and given credit to "Unknown" as a way of using it without permission.... c'est la vie. I have no way of proving it belongs to me and all the really matters is I KNOW it belongs to me.
Due to the abuse and disregard of credit for my work, My writing's poem’s or otherwise are my own and will remain that. Thank you for your kind offer.
