On an aimless Sunday drive into Pennsylvania I happened upon the small town of Kriedersville PA and the Zion Stone Church cemetery. With time and no place to go I pulled into the cemetery to read headstones of people, especially those of married couples.
From my car I was reading the stones as I slowly passed by. One stone (below) made me stop. While it may not be the most profound statement I found it reassuring, something I needed that day, something I believe in everyday. Made that aimless hundred mile trip worthwhile. I thought I would share it, hopefully there is someone else that relates to it as well.
I really think that is true. You don’t have to stop loving someone or stop your feelings because your spouse has passed. We can continue to love and continue to feel or remember the love they shared with us—that can stay with us always. I often wondered if others felt that way. Rich, as odd as this may sound, maybe you were drawn there to read that for a reason.. Glad you posted it here, thanks!
I wondered why I happened upon that cemetery as well. Janet always said she felt she was here to watch over me, maybe she still is.
It is profound to me. Maybe because it hit on things that have been bouncing around my head for the past few days. I was definitely in the right place to receive this. Thank you, Rich, it was like a validation of my mind set.
I was hoping that someone else could relate to the message. I'm glad you did and I'm glad it was in a good way.
