My sister was not buried. I think I am glad that there is no gravesite to go to. It's been three years and I will probably cry every time I think about her for the rest of my life. I do believe in life after death and that the grave did not win.
Every time I hear Kenny Chesney's song about loss, the verse "What would you name your babies?" just kills me. Then the song comes on "God only cries for the living" and it reminds me I'm the one who is hurting, she is not, and someday, our family will be together again.
My dad's ashes were just buried a week ago and I have been four times, of course we live in the same town so that helps. I take flowers to my friend Michelle's grave once a week(same cemetery), so I will be going at least twice a week.
My mother died 2 years ago and i have not been to her grave at all. I feel so bad but i am just starting to live again and to see that might bring me back to the beginning
My son Mitchell passed away 3 1/2 years ago at the age of 12 , he had a cancerous brain tumor . we visit him every sunday ran or shine snow storms and all.

i know this is an old post but i wanted to comment. i havent been at all. i drive down the road hat the cemetery is on and panic. i cant do it and now i wonder if i ever will. i think i will go crazy if i go their.
I didn't do something special for going there. I just go to my grandfather's grave and burn a candle on his grave. Its give me some relief and I remind my grandfather. I thought he is always in my heart and I can't forget him.
My best friend lost his grandma and he also doing same work like me. Its the best way to remind our loved ones and they would alive in our memories.
