It seemed appropriate to get away from regular life for a few days in order to spend some time remembering Grey - his laugh, his voice, all the ways he enriched our lives.
We ended up in Gettysburg, PA, also a place for remembering and honoring men who died tragically. In a somber state of mind, we drove though the park, feeling the national loss, appreciating the beauty of the memorials erected to honor men who gave their all for their country.
Our personal journey through the day reminded me of this quiet park that is dotted with monuments from each state involved in the battle. Messages from family and friends confirmed that Grey is not forgotten. For us, every call, email, and note, a monument to our son.
Thank you to each person who took the time to let us know that you remember.
Sorrow is better than laughter: for by sadness of the countenance is the heart made better. Ecclesiastes 7:3
