New Mexico Trip Day 6

Yesterday was the most important day of our trip. We visited the cemetery where Eric’s father is buried. When we were here for his memorial service in August the new veteran’s cemetery was not yet complete, so his internment wasn’t until November. This was our first visit.


The new cemetery is lovely and peaceful. Eric used this gravesite locator which also gives out a sheet of paper that you can use to make a rubbing of the headstone.


It was hard and it was good.


We think of him every day and it was good to know where he has been laid to rest, on a quiet New Mexican mountain.
