The Final Piece


The above picture is a polaroid of my father's headstone. It was placed last week or so. My mom and I haven't been to Accident, MD yet, to actually see the stone, but we will sometime in the near future.

My dad would of like the stone. It fits the cememtary and isn't ostentatious at all. It blends in nicely. The most important part of the whole thing is that he is amongst his congregation. Many of the folks he ministered to when he served St. John's are around him.

It is lovely — a great tribute. Must admit, though, there's something oddly haunting about seeing your mom's name on there already.

Yes, it is a bit "haunting" to see her name there. Maybe some day you and I can travel there to see Garrett County. I'm sort of planning a trip this summer.
