The Cemetery

Erica's Grave, Buried 5/28/2011
Growing up we lived on Cemetery Road and my parents still do.  We would frequently drive by the cemetery, Erica and I would be in the back seat.  My Dad would ask us, "how many people are dead in there?"  We would say "I don't know 200."  He would reply with "no sillies, all of them."  Or he would make cracks like "people are just dying to get in that place."  He was always trying to make us laugh.   

Driving by isn't the same when you have loved ones buried there.  Over the years I've had many relatives buried in the cemetery, but leaving Erica there was hard.  I pray she is at peace, and I pray my family finds comfort and strength through our loss.
