Saw this on FB, what are your thoughts on this?


If you can't read what it says for whatever reason, it says:

" A Mother adds a sandbox to her son's grave so his older brother can play with him....Thoughts?"

I think it's heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time.

 Everyone grieves in their own way. I don't see an issue with it.

I was reading some of the comments from FB and people were calilng it 'weird'.

I don't understand how.

Quoting conweis:

It's their children....they can do whatever they want and should fear NO judgement from others.   I would, however, worry that it would become a litter box...

I, as a life rule, do not judge how people react to the death of their child.

Its odd but only because no one has done it before. I think its sweet and sad. I mean look at all the people who go to grave sites just to sit there and talk, you know this little boy will probably go there play and talk to his brother even tho he didnt know him very well. He will always be on his mind.

Not how I'd handle it, but if that's what works for them...personally I don't thinkthats healthy. Too much attachment to a piece of ground. That's not where he's at, in my belief.

I think parents should grieve in whatever way they see fit. Loosing a child is tragic enough without people judging.

I lost two children. I find this beautiful and I'd do it too.

I don't really agree with it or think it's cute. It is kind of creepy, but I also don't agree with the whole, let's pile all this shit on top of our kid. Kind of freaks me out.
