MY HEART IS FULL...

Today I got THIS surprise email in my inbox:

Beck:
This afternoon mom and I went to Ben's grave and put a special marker on it.  Hope you like it.  It is made of a cement composite and weighs over 100 lbs.  I made a cement base for it and still have to spray it with a water sealant to protect it from the elements over time.  
I got the idea while driving by this place in Westborough that sells things like this and ordered it out of a catalog.  It is a birthday gift for  you and Steve.  Mom thinks it is smiling and being happy and I think it is crying and being sad.  
Love you
Dad

I am so grateful for loving and thoughtful parents.  
I LOVE it.  
My heart is smiling.  My eyes are leaking.  My soul is joyful.






Thanks mom and dad...it's PERFECT!
xoxo
