As you may recall, Steele is buried on our property. I drive by his grave every day. I have been giving some thoughts as to how to mark his grave. I thought about various options but none felt right. I then remembered what I wanted for when I die:
|your remains are planted and it grows into a tree. Way better than a coffin or Urn sitting on the shelf.|
I had always wanted a Magonolia tree, so today Ed and I went to nursery and picked one up. I planted it beside his grave.
It will have beautiful, showy, white blossoms every spring and when they fall they will cover his grave.
I think that he would have liked that. It then came to me- "Steele Magonolia" and I had to chuckle. He'd have liked that too.
I am enjoying and love Carmen but I still miss my beautiful boy.
