Judson's Legacy

First Property

Drake and I have never owned property. 

But now we do.

We received in the mail today a stark white, 11×14 envelope from Fairhaven Memorial Park.  As I carefully pulled back the adhesive that sealed its contents, I wondered what was veiled in this paper pocket.  I slowly peaked inside and found therein an official certificate, printed on expensive parchment, with meticulous signatures and an embossed seal.  Upon reading the title, I burst into tears.

I was holding in my hands the deed to Judson’s gravesite.

When most people jump for joy at their initial purchase of land, I wept bitterly, having never imagined that our first property would be a burial site for our beloved, almost 3 year old son.

An undesirable deed, indeed!
