As I look back over the past few weeks I can see how people are taken advantage of in their time of grief. It starts the moment you step into the furneral home. They can talk you in to anything and money is not an option. You just sit there numb and agree to everything. They walk you through to pick out a casket and they all have big price signs on them and they ramble on about the quality of the vault and all of that...the whole time you sit there and nod, because you are too shocked to think. Then you go to order a head stone and again they start with trying to sell you more then what you need. I am glad I went with my daughter-in-law because she would have spent all my son's pension to bury him because she wanted him to have the best. I had to convence her that he would not like a big expensive stone and that he would tell her it is only a rock! She would have built him a monument she loves him so much. I know it is important to send a loved one off properly, but also I know in my heart that my son was not in that casket and that he was already in heaven watching over us. So we gave him a really nice funeral and he got sent home in the best, because we greived! I have no regrets everything was as perfect as it can be under these circumstances and I know the people were just trying to do their jobs but geez...Sorry I guess this is just one of those irrational thoughts I have.

You are the best support I could ask for. Each of you touch my heart and cradle me in your love. I'm every SO THANKFUL TODAY.
I want to thank all of you who have been supportive and continue to support me and my family. We buried my youngest son a week ago and still wander around in a daze and in shock. We hang on to each other and pray for strength to make it through each day. Thank you for your support, your prayers, and your hugs. Most of all, thank you for being my friends when I feel so very alone
