Jake was buried today. We were supposed to be there from 10:00 to about 10:30 but I didn't leave until after 12:30 and that wasn't all that willingly. Everyone but Chad left... including the people we rode there with. The funeral director sat until about 12, but he had another family so he had to leave. The grave digger people just sat there staring at us. I know they have jobs to do but it's my child, and if I don't want to leave him I'm not going to.
We started walking (mind you it was 101 degrees) and made it about 15 minutes (not even out of the graveyard yet) and some guy from the VFW hall came up and said the gravedigger wanted to talk to us. He drove us back and he was just making sure it was okay to bury him... but he was already in the hole. The nice VFW guy gave us a ride to Chad's where we slept all day.
So aside from today being a horrible day my best friend tells me something horrible that happened that she found out about on the day we took Jake off life support. She thought I already had too much to deal with but I wish so hard she would of at least gave me a shot. She didn't make it to the burial because of it. She was going to come over last night and tell me but she thought I'd be asleep and she didn't want to tell me right before I burried Jake.
Nothing is right and life is so unfair to everyone.
My heart aches for you and your family. Your beautiful child is with God
and the Angels now and will always be watching over you all from above.
May you find peace in knowing that he is well and happy. You are all in
my prayers. God Bless you.
