A picnic at the cemetery:

John and I had to dedicate all of Memorial Day weekend to car shopping, so we were unable to visit Uncle James’ grave.  We decided to take a little picnic up there this past Sunday and to try to teach James a little more about who he was named after and why Uncle James is so special to us.
James was so eager to show his Uncle his favorite superheroes! 
For those of you who are new to reading our blog, my husband’s brother James passed away the summer before his senior year.  John was serving a mission for our church in Canada at the time, and his strength and endurance and faith through such a hard time while being away from home inspires every part of my soul every day as I reflect upon what that must have been like.  Other posts about Uncle James can be found here, here, here, and here.
