Somebody has to do it, right?

Humans are an interesting species. We like to be liked. We have a tendency to ignore the unsightly and admire the beautiful things of the world.  We are always quick to judge.

( even those of us who think we don’t ).

Even our heroes, champions, and leaders have to be people that make us feel better with our admiration of them.

We have our underdogs who ignore the doubtful thoughts and words of others and manage to overcome obsticles and obtain unimaginable goals.

Finally, there is the Somebody has to do it I’m just glad it’s not me. The man in the article attached is that Somebody. These are the people who keep the world balanced.

I am grateful for this one Somebody  that keeps the balance slightly tipped on the good side of the human race. Take a minute and read the article I have attached to this post.

The Man Who Buries Everyone – MEL Magazine

A celebration of Alfonso’s life

I am passionate about my cross creations because I know that time spent quietly at a loved ones grave can be very private and special. Sometimes a person just wants to recall a memory, or have a conversation that never was spoke, or just a moment to show respect for the life that was part of yours.

I understand that this form of grieving, remembering, or paying tribute is often frowned upon by others. I also understand that it is not what everyone needs and  would never ask anyone why they don’t visit a gravesite, just as I think it is unkind to question or belittle those that choose to.

I did not know Alfonso. What I can tell you when I was ask to add his name to this memorial cross is this…

Alfonso is the name he was given when he entered this world

He was loved

His birthday is the same every year……. His mother was the one he shared that first birthday with

His mother enjoys celebrating his life as any mother would on a child’s birthday

A celebration of a life , that is all that should matter. 

Thank you Alfonso’s Mom for reminding me how much I love what I do!
