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!
