    I came across this today, though I couldn't find any more info about it:

    I'm going to say something that is probably un-PC, but here it goes: I think it's weird...like really, really weird.

    Edit: A few comments have bad language in them.

    Do the construction vehicles sometimes move without obvious influence? If so: mission accomplished parents?

    Well, it's better than I feared. I figured it was an old pedo making sure the kiddies always played with him.

    That's a bit odd.

    My tombstone will read:

    At least his brother gets to play with him.

    That's really sad.

    The phrase "move on" suggests itself.

    they lost a child.... im sure they had good intentions, and im sure it seemed appropriate at the time.

    i dont think it's that creepy or anything just... different, i guess. a little kid playing in the sand is basically the same as an adult putting down flowers isint it? sort of?

    On the surface, he's a name on a list.
    And it seems to me, no matter how hard he attempts to show discretion, ultimately it results in his blowing it.

    Looks like whatever the link led to is gone. :atoz:

    Are we talking about a sandbox on a grave?

    Yes, that is exactly what it was.. So that a young child could play together with his deceased sibling..

    Creepy..

    I think it is touching. People these days are too weird about death. When I die I want to be propped up for death photos like people used to do.

    Either that or put into a superman costume and thrown out of a plane over downtown.

    I don't know if I would have done it, but honestly, I can't imagine loosing one of my kids and I have no idea what I might do to try and deal with it myself and what I would do to help the other child. It's heartbreaking, not creepy.

    Everyone deals with loss differently.

    Far be it for me to condemn someone else's good intentions / coping mechanisms during a time of tragic loss.

    It's not creepy at all, just different.
