Set in stone

I've thought about it all year long. I've written about it here...how I'm not really sure why we put off ordering Emma's headstone for so long. Except that maybe it was just too final...accepting that she really is gone. forever. A part of the earth now. I was thinking this morning that her birthday is just around the corner. Would it be nice to have her marker there, or not really? Then, the phone rang, and the number looked familiar, but I couldn't remember why until the sweet voice on the other end of the line said it was here, and they could set it today if we liked. I said that would be fine and cried the rest of the day. Some things really are set in stone.

I am glad there is hope of a future with her again some day...

  4. How hard. If you're inclined, I bet I'm not the only one who'd like to see a photo, especially because we don't have the option of visiting her grave site (which, really, even if I could I'm not sure I *could*. In my opinion, the cemetery is just a place of death -- it's in our hearts that Emma will live forever). May strength be yours...
