It's beautiful. It's simple, but I love it. I feel so much peace now that she has one - a little more closure, I guess. I am so thankful to the Dempsey Burdick Memorial Foundation for providing it for us - I have no idea when I would have been able to get her one otherwise. Certainly not for 3-5 more years at least.
We went out to her grave on Mother's Day. It was the last time we went with her temporary marker in place!
Today, we went out to see it, and to take a new shepherd's hook and a flower basket out, and it looks amazing!
Under her name and dates it says "Too pure, too lovely for this Earth. In our arms for a short time, in our hearts forever."
I wish I had good photo editing skillz because I think this is an awesome shot. Especially since I'm a total amateur.
The footprints on her headstone are tracings of the footprints we took after she had died, in their actual size. E's little foot looks MONSTROUS comparatively!
You can see the top of the shepherd's hook we brought and the flower basket. I think the shepherd's hook is a super pretty one, and as you can see you can hang stuff off both sides. I only brought the one basket this time, though. And I did take the tag off before we left ;)
