Thoughts on Being Buried

Some of you may never think about what you want to happen to your body when you die. I know I haven't, but my parents have. They are both going to be cremated. So now you may be wondering what will I do about marking their burial spot. Well, we have a family plot that my great-grandparents bought. There is enough room left in the plot for my parents, my brother and my self if we are all cremated. When the time comes I will put a grave marker down even if it is not where they lay, just to show that they lived. I think more families should put down a marker down for the decease so that their future children may have a chance to visit.

Losing a Baby

The saddest thing I have encountered throught out my journey is seeing the graves of babies. Majority of the babies I saw did not even make it a week, or a day. It must have been terrible for the poor mothers. I am just glad that did not happened to my family, at least as far as I know. Some of the babies made it to a month. Even seeing the children graves was sad. They were so young and had the whole world ahead of them, but were unable to have their chance.
