LOVEnCherish. When Noah passed away Kylie organised for her to make me a beautiful necklace with all four boys names on it, and I treasure it so much. I will treasure this one even more.
While I was sitting, crying at Aaron's grave (luckily I have a good supply of man hankies thanks to Simone) a lovely older man drove up and started tending to a grave near by. He lovingly watered the plants in pots on top of the grave, and then got out an old towel and wet it and wiped down the plaque.
I looked at him and smiled and he said hi, and after a little while he left. I went to see who he was visiting, and it was his wife who passed away last year, at about age 60. There was a photo of the two of them together on the plaque. I cried even more to know that his heart was also broken, but to also see that he got to spend many more years with his wife than I got to spend with Aaron. I couldn't help but feel cheated of so many years.
Aaron's grave is right near the children's section, so we can see Noah's grave from it. I just couldn't get my head around that I was standing at Aaron's grave, and looking at Noah's at the same time.
I went over to visit Noah and after a big cry, a prayer and some deep breaths I started to feel that peace come over me again. As hard as this is right now, I know that things will be okay. I hate that they aren't here, but I feel comforted to know that the two of them are together.
