Smiles.............

.................one of those things I saw none in the last many months from Leonard, and maybe from me.  This was in February on a visit from Amanda.  His smile makes me ache now, just knowing that he once could.  Yesterday was the one month anniversary of his death.  One month!  It seems like a year.  I went to Buffalo to visit his grave for the first time.  It helped me a tiny bit to remember that when we picked out these spots he said "When people come to visit our graves it will be such a beautiful place to come."   But not a lot.  A fresh grave didn't sit in the middle of it then.   Diane

I loved the time we had with Leonard when he was smiling. That day doesn't seem all that long ago, does it?
Love you! You are brave!

Oh Diane,those first anniversaries are so hard.The wounds are yet,so deep,but the pain will lessen,but the me fries remain,as they should.Cherish each one and allow the tears to wash away tiny little bits of the deepest pain.

I am glad you were able to go. I still haven't been able to visit my Mom's and it's been 8 months. She is in a lovely spot too. :) Kit
