Visiting William on Memorial Day

We had a beautiful Memorial day we went to Cheyenne to visit Williams grave.
It has been nice that we have been able to go the last 3 years. When we lived in Alaska we never got to visit Williams grave.
I am so glad that we are only 3 hours away. I know it is only the place where his earthly remains are but somehow every time I go to visit his grave I have peace for me it is tangible proof that he real I love seeing his name on his tomb stone.
William was buried at the foot of his great grandfather Wilderness grave they share a birth date. 
I know they are together along with so many family members who have passed before him and since.
I remember the day clearly when we decided to bury William at his grandfathers feet that it gave me comfort that he was not alone.
I know this may sound strange but to a grieving mother it just made since.
Some days it is hard for me to fathom that it's been 7 and a half years since I last held him in my arms other days It feel just like yesterday.
As the day he left his earthly home and took his last breath I new through the atonement of Jesus Christ we would be together again.
The phrase Family's Can be Together Forever brings be greater joy than before William died.
This phrase brings me comfort and peace and hope on hard days.
