headstone

we finally decided on a heastone for Olivia. We wanted simplicity, and it turned out perfectly.
This is what we decided on. The footprints are Olivia's and they will be as close to her size as they can get. It will be on black granite with white writing. It will sit at an angle off the ground. Because of the ground freezing and since it finally decided to be winter (it started snowing here today), it won't be put in until Spring.
I am glad we finally got this done. It has been bugging me for so long. Olivia's grave won't look so temporary with her little sign, not that I wish it were even there, it will jsut look finished finally.
There is another little baby that was just buried by Olivia. I will visit her and bring apples for her too.

I think the headstone is perfect. It is going to look very nice when it is put in. Thanks for thinking of Mya as well.

I really like the headstone. It was REALLY HARD to pick one out for my mom.... I must have sat there for over 2 hrs looking at the huge book of designs. Then when I decided, I just cried...


She's not doing well... she'll make it through Christmas, but not too long after that. We are going to be up in Spokane for Christmas and New Years. All of us are going to spend Christmas Eve with her as a family.

I love it! You are so thoughtful. Maybe you will get to meet the parents of the other baby and be of some comfort to them.
