The Headstone

I finally dealt with getting a headstone for Steve. It should be fairly simple – just order online, choose a few graphics & pictures and it’ll be delivered when it’s done.  The reason it took a while for me to deal with this is because I felt that there’s no going back, he’s really physically gone. It was emotionally draining after doing that.

It has been a while since I wrote something but what else can I say besides the fact that I missed him terribly. These days, I’m busy with taking care of my little munchkin & work. This coming May 11th, it’ll will mark the 1st year since Steve had been reported missing. A lot of things had happened since then. And later on when the time is right, I will share more.

I’m planning on having a Memorial Mass for Steve on that day.

“Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depths of some devine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather to the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.”
― Alfred Tennyson
