Cemetary Marker

Recommended Posts

Well, I got a call from the funeral home saying they laid the marker for Lori. Sort of brings a brand new reality to this. I mean, I know she's gone but each little thing sort of twists the knife a little bit more. When I heard the message from the funeral home it was everything I could do to hold it together at my desk at work. I know it's just a piece of bronze on top of a granite square. It's a benign inanimate object carved by a person who never met Lori and knows nothing about how special she was. It marks a spot on the ground that holds the shell she used for 46 years. It's not her there in the ground. So why does it hurt so much all over again?

It is beautifully done, a tribute to her, and it's neat that you will share a spot with her.  I know it's not "her", but still the body she inhabited was familiar to you for so many years, it is special all the same.
