It has been over 24 years since my little brother was taken from this earth at the age of 4. As I became an adult I went to his resting place many times. I new there was no marker marking his resting place on this earth.
However, when i went to this place yesterday, my hear hurt. I had a hard time even finding what they call his grave site. I knew it was next to my uncles but sad to say my uncle doesn’t have no marker either.
When I got there, and I went searching I found two graves side by side, in the area I knew my brother was. I found a slab with some words on it, and 2 flower pots one busted. I recall my grandma telling me a few years ago, one of the pots was broken. I was shocked to see that broken flower pot still there. I was sad to see after 24 years of my brother being gone nothing to mark his grave.
Before moving to TN I went to my brother’s grave often, it was my way to escape reality. I would go and talk to him, and ask him to help me through tough times. Many times I think he answered.
Now that I am back home, this Summer I will be planning trip to his grave yet again, however, I am not going empty handed. I am going with some flowers, and I would like to see what it would cost to get him something to mark his spot here on earth. I don’t have a lot of money, but I need to do this for my brother.
