Set in Stone

Today Corey’s headstone was delivered and set (thanks to a wonderful anonymous gift).

I’ve been putting off ordering it. I guess it was my way of avoiding the inevitable… admitting he was really gone.

No automatic alt text available.

Seeing his name carved in stone is not something I thought I’d

have to see… unless it was a plaque in his honor.

And then there were the thoughts: What should it say? What would he want on it? What color would he want?

All of these things seem so small… but 1

00 years from now, someone will be reading his headstone and all they will know of him is what I write…

Beloved Son and Brother.

There are so many more words I want to say… but not enough granite to put them on.

Today, its set in stone.
