This is to embrace you with a little story on cemeteries - just in case you would turn sad tomorrow.

I was working several weeks on a graveyard and you'd never guess how much we laughed and actually had to laugh there.

May sound strange to those who go there only on sad days. But:

Cemeteries are just like life. There is no mystery around, nothing strange. Don't fear them. They are peaceful places in a wild world.

Graveyards are very often so wonderful parks where a rest from the crazy hasty world outside is a pure wellness program. Go there for your most private peaceful moments. Watch the clouds, the birds, check out tomb stones' engravings, wander with your mind and imagination around the life story of the deceased, sit down, feed the squirrels, read a book.

Graveyards are very much filled up with all kinds of joy, faith, surprises, personalities, people and odd things.
You will find love and care, friendship and passion but also people gossiping about the dead only 2 meters behind the
cascet, you'll see liars, greed and thieves there (in regular life they
would be advocats or bankers and have a big car and a huge bank account
- but when it comes to the flowers on the grave aside theirs and these
flowers are bigger, more beautiful or just fresher, they will get them
and put them on their grave...).

It's really enjoyable and many times just funny.
Take your time, walk around, feed the squirrels there for at
least an hour and you will never again go this much down when honoring
a dead on a cemetary.

Think of this tomorrow in case you get sad.
Cemeteries are life and life is full of beauty and light.
I would love to be a sparrow tomorrow at Forestlawn and most likely giggle a lot.
And if it were only for the hats of the ladies I would imagine as a sparrow to build my next nest of...

Hugs from Grace (not disrespectful at all but smiling)

Ive actually done this. Down here in the south we have alot of cemetaries with soliders from the Civil War...its interesting to walk through them and to read the headstones. I know it sounds morbid, but its really not.
Every gravestone stands for a person and their life. You almost "live" their life while standing near their grave. Its very peaceful and profound. You can almost see them...feel them...like theyre right there standing next to you..

Its not sad at all....its very upliftinf to me actually.

Now ask to walk in graveyard at night?

HEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL NO.

I am going to try to NOT be sad tomorrow regardless of what happens. I have come to the conclusion that there is probably going to be a funeral and at this point, whether truly gone or not (and I believe not), Michael will FINALLY get his peace.

If he does indeed decide to come back then I will fight you all to be first in line for a ticket to the show...LOL.

Yeah that's nice Grace. My father is buried in one of the biggest graveyards in Northern Ireland and it has rivers and everything in it. I often wander around trying to read the dates on the old old headstones and often do wonder about their lives. It's an interesting place. But thanks for them touching words cause i'm gonna by sad tomorrow. Lets just hope i can hold it down at work, cause really feeling sad at work today. Kept playing gone too soon in my head. Sad
