A poignant moment

The rain poured down, as did the tears down my face, whilst I held Constantin's very tiny coffin. The words and poems did nothing to alleviate the terrible grief of all those standing in the rain.
The burial took place at Clayton Wood Burial Ground in the Sussex downs just to the north of Brighton. A peaceful, unspoilt and fitting resting place for one who saw so little of life. I grieve for you little one.

I'm so sorry for your loss! My thoughts are with you, Jan, your son and his wife.
