I miss him very much but this year I felt more peace at the cemetery than ever. We walked around and looked at other graves. When Marshall's body was first buried it was at the edge of the cemetery surrounded by an open field. Now the field is almost filled with graves. Death is all around us. People die all the time.
The righteous perish,
and no one ponders it in his heart;
devout men are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death.
- Isaiah 57:1-2
