The Monday after Easter is also a public holiday. We took the opportunity to visit Titus's grave for the first time since the funeral (and since Leon's parents were in town). As we drove into the cemetery Chrysti was uncertain if we'd remember where his grave was since the day we buried him was a blur. Thankfully Leon remembered where it was, and as we got closer we noticed a headstone was now in place. I (Chrysti) took a deep breath again. It seemed wrong that we should be visiting our son's grave.
Titus's headstone felt cold as it stood among the headstones of other children who died too soon. It stood as a reminder of the broken world we live in. At the bottom of the headstone were the words boldly written, "In Christ, we have the hope of eternal life." Those words help take away the sting of our loss. They're a reminder to us that we'll see Titus again one day in Heaven with our Saviour.
