Project 52 | Week 38 | Memorial


We miss you.
You're finally at peace.
We love you. 
Shine your grace down upon us.

It only took 5 minutes to lay her ashes to rest on top of my father's casket.  It was almost eerie to hear the small box hit the casket cement, but nice to think they're together and watching us.  My mom's husband Bob was awesome and we still managed to honor my mom's wishes: don't make a big deal and don't cry. 

And Lloyd went over to the grave stone and quietly put his hands on it and was standing there just staring at it.  Our frenzied toddler suddenly sober, like he knew he was in the presence of his grandparents.  His namesake.  The pictures might be odd for some people but they make me smile in a heartbreaking way.  He's so much of his grandfather and he will never know him.  Hopefully he will have some of his grandmother's unwavering faith within him.  Be strong bubba.
