The days following the death of a child, baby or pregnancy are filled with sadness, shock and anger. There are so many overwhelming decisions to make that have never been considered. How will your sweet angel be memorialized? Will we cremate her or have her buried? This decision can be lightened with the support of family and friends by your side.
When our son was stillborn, we asked a friend that was excellent at woodworking to construct a cross for Tanner, http://justacloudaway.com/nav-sidebar-ideas/garden.html. This beautiful, handmade cedar cross is where his ashes are placed within his memory garden.
Memorial stones and boulders can be found at www.valleymonuments.com. If you have a more rustic and woodland garden, these stones will add to the beauty of your surroundings for you and your angel.
Garden stepping stones can be found at http://www.theremembrancecenter.com/sunshop/index.php/action/category/id/5/ These stones can be incorporated into the garden with other stone pavers and planted with a small creeping plant, softening its edges. There are different sayings on the stones that are truly touching.
Infant and Pregnancy Loss Stone Memorials can be found at www.collinsmonument.com. They will also customize granite, marble or bronze stones for you, creating a special tribute for your angel.

We can’t do anything to bring them back, but we can do everything to keep their memories alive.
