Gravestone set: 5 years after…

Curiosity is still prevalent after death and this cemetery that Sveta and I just did some work at for a family member that has passed away, is full of curious souls…

We basically got it done and I need to make one more trip to finalize everything. Fix the gate, clean some more and Sveta wants and I agree, that we need to turn the lettering on the stone to black color from a white tint. In the image the stone we set, is laying at an angle downward from the old stone, so the water drains and the lettering on the stone is just too weak. They said only white or gold color when the stone was purchased? I have been asking why no black? But hey I am American; right!

Then after I set the stone and read it once again, then as I sat there and felt the eyes on me from all directions and I shuddered with the energies that flowed all over the cemetery. I said, “5 years! It has been five years since she died!”

Sveta looked at me and then I saw the realization hit her also and we both realized how much time we have been together and how much we are going through together. I also sat and thought about what the future is going to bring, for things are going to get rough…

A babushka and her granddaughter appeared at the graveside next to ours. I was able to see tradition at work, as the two cleaned up the enclosed area, left crumbled cake on the enclosed table, sprinkled grain seeds on the grave-site, left other tidbits of crackers and food stuffs. The young granddaughter worked so hard and the babushka was a happy grandma!

Sveta and I did not do all that as they did, but the souls were happy just the same with what we did… 🙂
