Passing Thoughts

Céad Míle Fáilte

(If you look closely you”ll see the angel guarding these graves)

I spent some time at Cedar Grove Cemetery at the University of Notre Dame today.  It was a really warm, beautiful, quiet day.  As some of you know, my mother-in-law passed away about a month ago.  Per her request, she was cremated, and the burial service was delayed until all the members of the family could be here.  We set the date for her burial service for Mother’s day, to commemorate her life among us.   I spent the morning trimming shrubbery away from the headstone, pulling weeds that had sprouted this Spring, and clipping the grass that was overgrowing its bounds around the stone.  I wanted the gravesite to look as best it could.  After the landscaping chores I scrubbed and polished the stone and sealed it with a coating that will maintain the beautiful, bright shine of the marble.
