Heading to the cemetery

Heading to the cemetery this came on the radio…

Van Halen’s “Right Now”

This was one of the songs I used for the funeral slide show.

I hadn’t stopped by the cemetery for a few days.  Kiddo and I had been out to lunch at one of our favorite places- Miss Oxford Diner (John LOVED their MD Crab soup) & I’d bought grain  & went to TSC and priced vaccines and kiddo came home with a little John Deere tractor.

Literally, I pulled in the cemetery drive & the song came on the radio.  I left the Jeep door open & let it play.  Then as I was turning out of the cemetery the song was over.

Smiles & tears.  Perfect timing.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
