Love Ones at the Cemetery

My late MIL could have been 82 this year. She was born , February the 13th. Dad wanted to visit her grave on her birthday but my husband was working that day so we visited last Saturday instead.
We changed the flower in her grave.  There are five family members who are buried in this cemetery.  John's Mom, two brothers,  his nephew, and his Aunt.  Three of them died  from cancer (Mom, Aunt, and brother)
Up top of her grave is her two sons, as you can see my FIL going to see his two sons' grave.  I can see the pain in my FIL's eyes whenever we visits his wife and kids.
When we were leaving, a flower on someone's grave was blown away so my son picked up and  put them back.
They might not be around anymore but  we still  love and remember them all the time.
I hope your Valentine's celebration is a blast.  We did not have a special celebration as my son is sick, I am bringing him to the doctor today.  Have a great weekend everyone.

I've been to a cemetery twice, when my grandparents from my mother side passed away. I haven't gone back to visit them. I am really afraid of cemetery.

ever since my parents passed on in 2007, going to the cemetery has been part of our routines. there may be times when we fail to visit but will make up for it whenever we can. this year, i plan to make our visit a weekly regular activity. the memorial is not only a place of solace, giving me that warm feeling as if my parents were still around, but also something my little man look forward to, the place is one perfect playground with plenty of space to run around...

Awww! such a sweet and sad moment visiting your MIL Sis Rose :-) I am glad that you go with your FIL to visit his wife and kids :-) I am sure that he missed his wife and kids :-( We seldom go to the cemetery here to visit my husband's only brother and he always cried :-( it has been 11 years since his younger brother's death :-(

that was so sweet of you guys to visit your mother in law. I can relate to you as well since my mother in law just passed away about 2 years ago. i know it's sad and i truly missed her too. Maybe this March, we will be able to visit her again for her 3rd death anniversary!

Your mother-in-law is very happy seeing all of you visiting her and she would be lucky to have a family like you. Because you never forget to visit her in cemetery.

I wish I could visit my families graves but it is not easy. My mother was buried in the UK with her mother. My brother is in Zimbabwe and my Dad's ashes were sent out to sea as he wished. :-( Diane

A vary touching post. Your children will have good memories of events such as this.

My interpretation for that heart shape snow is that your beloved family who passed already were happy as you paid a visit to their grave. They show how much they love you through that heart shape.
