A Quiet Place To Visit



Last Friday I got a call from the monument company saying they were at the cemetery ready to put in Aaron's headstone but were having trouble finding his grave. Trying to describe where to find the plot was proving difficult so I jumped in the car and headed down to show them where he was. What I didn't expect was the flood of emotions that came on the drive down. Of course when I got there just a few minutes later they had found the site. We have been anxiously awaiting this for a couple months now and we are happy it has finally been placed.

Last night for Family Night we took flowers over and showed the kids how the vase on the side works. Visiting Aaron has become a regular thing for our family and now we have a place to put flowers will we come. Anytime we are near the cemetery Joseph will ask if we can go visit Aaron. When I ask the other kids if they want to go the answer is always a resounding YES! I am a little surprised by their exuberance sometimes but whenever we pull in they usually quiet down. Peaceful feelings are always abundant there and I wonder if that is why the kids want to go.
