Three Years Later
It was a very different experience returning to Josiah's graveside with children.
Last year we were in Enderby grieving my father's death, so it's been two years since we've been on site for August 2nd.
We cleaned his gravestone (and cleaned my grandmother's as well). Joelle was extremely helpful - she loves to clean :)
We were numb yet upbeat for most of our visit, but tears came for me as we were planning to leave. So we stayed there a while longer. It was surreal holding Conrad while remembering Josiah.
Joelle wanted to sing a song for "Siah" so her and Marie say Twinkle, Twinkle five times over. It reminded me of times I sang that to Josiah as he fell asleep.
"How long, O Lord?"
