After months of waiting and tons of phone calls, my dad's grave marker is finally ready. We decided to go with a marble bench instead of a traditional headstone because too often people want to go sit and visit with their loved one at the cemetery and have nowhere to sit. The monument company emailed a picture of the finished product and we're all very pleased with the way it turned out. I know it may seem insignificant to some, but this really is a big deal for me, as well as some other family members. It's been hard to go to the cemetery with nothing really there to identify the site. It still seems surreal that all of this has happened and that my dad is actually gone, but I think finally having the bench/marker there will help bring a bit of closure to such a horrible year. Here's hoping for a much better 2012!
