Today was my deceased son's birthday. He died in 2001, right before is 21st birthday. I took off work because I get emotional on his birthday. Also if I went to work I wouldn't be able to get to the cemetery before it closed. We dropped my husband's truck off for service and went to breakfast. After breakfast we bought flowers and went to the cemetery. While we were there some ladies pulled up and put a big flower arrangement on a grave a short distance from where we were. I walked by one of the ladies to get some water for my flower holder and I spoke to her. After she finished what she was doing, she came over to us with a big picture of water and rinsed off my son's grave for us. We told her thanks. We usually put a little water on it and wipe it with paper towels, but when she rinsed it off, we didn't need to wipe it down. From now on, I'm taking a big pitcher when I go down there. When we left the grave site we came home. I didn't do anything until we went to pick up my husband truck around 5. Then I went to my mom's for choir rehearsal. We are supposed to sing at a visiting church on Sunday. Now I'm washing clothes because tomorrow we are driving to Las Vegas for the one of our grandson's 5th birthday party on Saturday. His actual birthday is on the 8th. I was so glad he wasn't born on the 3rd. My husband has a grand niece who will be 5 tomorrow. I was so nervous when we were waiting for these babies to be born. I'm up on the scale again. I'm hoping to get back on track when we return.
When I saw your note on the Casual Travelers wall, I came to your page straight away. I’m a mom of three grown girls. My heart went out to you. I’m so sorry for your loss. That was a nice gesture to help you clean your son’s marker.
I hope you have a nice drive to Vegas. Shower that grandson with love! 45 days ago
