sam's namesake

while at the cemetary for my aunt peggy's funeral last week a few of us gathered at my grandfather's grave (sam's namesake), which was just rows away from my aunt's resting place.  while we chatted, hugged, & shed a few tears sam plopped down for a rest with his beloved otter.  of all the grave stones surrounding us, he chose the one with which he had a connection.  it was a very sweet and tender moment.  i thank my aunt carol for capturing this moment.

Katie, I didn't know about your aunt's passing. I'm sorry to hear it. What a sweet moment brought on by Sam though. It's amazing how kids can lift our spirits without even trying!
