Lancaster, Here We Come!

Seth & I will be in Lancaster for the 2nd Anniversary of Shane's death: March 12, 2006. I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be on that date.

Shane's cremains are buried there. I don't actually feel like any part of Shane is there - just a lot of my memories of Shane. That's what's there. And I feel like I'm going home again.

The first thing I want to do is go to the cemetery. His biological father took care of all the burial arrangements. At that time, I just couldn't deal with any of it. I might have done things differently, given some time. But, what's done is done. I am trying real hard not to live with regrets.

I wanted to be the one to choose the grave marker. I haven't done it yet. I have a very good idea of what I want to do - I just need to check with the cemetery to see if what I have in mind is allowed. I'm ready now. I'm curious to see if Shane's dad gave up on me ever doing it & did something himself.

We haven't been down there in so long - probably a year & a half. Each time we go there, Seth plants something on Shane's grave. This time of year isn't the planting season so I'm not sure what we'll do to mark the occasion. We'll think of something that will comfort us.
