Friends of ours, Brent & Naomi, live nearby the cemetery and told us that they planned on making it a family tradition to clean Rachel's spot for us every year. They have been faithfully shoveling it out for us, including last week when the roads weren't plowed yet, meaning they made the same trip we did through the snow! When I pulled up, I figured it would be somewhat cleaned up... what I saw, yet again left me in tears of gratitude. I cannot begin to explain how amazingly people have loved us through this journey. Not only had Brent & Naomi cleaned ALL the snow off of Rachel's grave, the marker I made her and little name plate, (and they said someone else had done some cleaning up too) but the cemetery apparently plowed the entire area! This spot that is plowed is not even a road, it's usually lawn, but they did this especially for us. I am humbled by the ways people continuously bless us... thank you all!
