Started out early today to go with my good friend Rachel to the grave of Graeme. She was unable to make the funeral, so we went along today to have a chat at the site, and spend some time remembering him.
It was strange being back there, everything so quiet. Ground settling, just a few people about tending to families graves. A true sense of peace for Graeme at last. Not lonely at all though, just peaceful. Myself and Rachel had a good chat, with her the grave to blame Graeme from time to time lol, was just like old times.
But then reality hit for a bit, and the truth of the matter struck us both for a bit. Gone forever, taken away from us too soon. Suddenly life takes a whole new meaning, and living for tomorrow seems like such a waste of time. Today is the day, embrace it! Own it!
The one nice thing is, knowing where he was laid to rest means I will forever more have somewhere to go for a chat when I need to blow off steam, or just want to be close for a bit.
Today reminds me of just one thing. Life is too short to worry about petty things. Have fun, make a splash, create memories, and left nothing unsaid.
Short and sweet today I know, but then the best things in life are eh :)
