Glad I Saw It: Bench Trimmed in Green

There are several memorial benches around Brookdale Park. Some have pithy sayings, and some are more simple. This bench, overlooking the meadow, has been lovingly trimmed in greenery for the season. It is lovely, and it made me smile. IMG_5297

It is in honor of a young man lost too soon, and a little bird told me that Vincent DeFalco loved peppermint sticks. So if you pass by, leave a candy cane or two for someone to find and enjoy. And let us remember that this season of joy and celebration for so many faiths and cultures is a very difficult time for many people as well. If you are feeling a loss more deeply during this time, look for coping methods that work for you.
