. . . about little things, and the Big . . .
That's a sobering thought,Charles, but probably the most REAL thing we have to deal with in life...In reading your previous post, where you wrote "I thought about the quiet peace of my Black Forest village where... I feel myself so much closer to those things in life that really matter," I'd say that sounds like a good place. :-)
Well, let me say this. Everyone but one uncle is buried in the family plot, here. He is buried with his wife in her family's plot quite a drive away. I recall him even in his missingness, of course, but I miss him; but far more importantly, his children and grandchildren are here..what must it be like for them to come to the family plot and know his remains are not here?
You're right, Justme, and it's important for those who remain to be able to visit, more than for the one who's gone ahead into new life.
