    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:

    Here lies elgecko

    Died: in your arms tonight...it must've been something you said!

    At least his brother gets to play with him.

    That's really sad.

    The phrase "move on" suggests itself.
  7. You should have just walked away...
  8. That's just creepy..
  9. 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?
  12. Yes, that is exactly what it was.. So that a young child could play together with his deceased sibling..

    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.

  15. Now that is an idea..

    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.
