Tombstone Blues


My Mom called me earlier in the week to tell me that the headstone had been installed on Buzzy’s gravesite (and what eventually will be her site as well.) As she told me about it she became somewhat emotional. Later on, when I went by the cemetery to check it out and I too became emotional. The headstone looks nice but there was some sort of finality or end point to the whole burial process and that gave me pause. ( Also, that Mom’s name and birthdate are inscribed on her side of the stone I could see why she was a little undone. I guess seeing one’s name on a tombstone will do that to you. )

Anyhow the stone is in, and if you’d like to check it out, the burial site is in the back left hand side of the cemetery.
