SOBERING VISIT

It's hard enough visiting your child at the cemetery.
But it makes it MUCH harder when you've seen that someone has carelessly driven right over the top of your child's grave.  
My kids were devastated as were we.
What adds to that is the fact that the local company we are dealing with is being SO SLOW in making Ben's grave marker.  I'm so frustrated.  I would choose to go with another company, but at this point I'm afraid it will set us back that much further.  I was really hoping to get it in the ground before the ground freezes.

It was plain sadness all around today...

Oh my gosh, Becky!!! I cannot believe that. I assume it was a cemetary employee? I would go complain!

That's awful! I get that maintenance needs to be done, but respect clearly was not on that person's agenda. So sorry. Hope tomorrow brings new smiles for you.

So sorry, my friend. Just wish I could give you a big hug (and give a few people a piece of my mind).

Oh my goodness! I cannot believe that someone would be so heartless to do such a thing. Also, why hasn't the cemetery put sod down and reseeded the area. There should at least be grass growing there. I'd complain to the cemetery officials. This is not right. I am so sorry that you had to experience such a heartless act. Love to you all. Aunt Shirley

Agreeing with Shirley. There should have been grass there by now. That comes with buying a plot.

Ben left those marks for you! He rode along, like a normal angel would, with the driver and made him/her put those marks on the ground for you to see. I can hear him now "Mom, did you see the marks I left for you? And you thought I could never drive. Okay so I never got much practice but I'm practicing now. I am made whole and free and will leave you many different kinds marks/signs in your life to let you know I am here with you. Keep your heart & eyes open so you can see/feel/hear me. I love you Mom!"
