I visited Gail's grave site for the first time this afternoon. Someone had been there and left a yellow rose.
I took home the yellow ribbons with wife, mother, grandmother and friend written on them.
I asked the same question that Liam asked, why is grandma in the ground. God said that his plan is perfect, his timing is always the best and I need not worry. I accepted his answer but I find it difficult for now.
I NEVER was one for graves, cemeteries etc. but as I sat on the ground and gazed around I had a strange peace and my heart was filled with awe, love and appreciation for Gail. My mind went back to the slide show at the wake and the last picture of her waving and I remembered how she would always wave like that when others left our house or when I drove off.
It is unbelievable, as I walk around at home Gail is in everything. Time will have to heal.
