It's been two weeks

...already. It's been a long two weeks since Dad's been gone. There have been countless times over these last weeks when I would have liked to have talked to him, asked for some advice and just spent some time sitting with him.

I visited the cemetery today instead. The roses we put on his casket last Friday are still there and the temporary marker is there. I imagine it will take some time before the real one is up.

They are doing some maintenance at Fort Rosecrans, so there is no grass in the particular spot where Dad's plot is. They are going back and resetting all of the head stones and making them perfectly level and straight. Other parts of the cemetery are already done and it looks incredible. The head stones look like perfectly lined up soldiers standing at attention. It is appropriate. It looks beautiful. Dad's area will be done soon, and it too will look beautiful.

I'm glad, he deserves a beautiful spot.

I've been thinking about you so much since I first read about your dad. I saw him featured in many of your posts and felt like I knew him a little bit too through your blog. I can't imagine how hard your loss is. My heart hurts for you. Xo.
