gravestone shopping

This isn’t fun. I don’t know where to start or how to begin. The women in my family have always visited the cemetery where are female ancestors and their families are buried every Memorial Day. Of course, I’d like Avalon to have a memorial stone there as well. It’s expensive but that’s ok, I have time to save up.

I really want a simple granite stone, bevel (as in flat but still above the ground), which her name, date of birth, the words “So Little, So Loved”, and a non-religious, small image that indicates she was a baby.

How hard can it be, right?

One thought on “gravestone shopping”

  1. I heard a song with the line, “my little soul will leave a footprint” and it made me think of you and Avalon. Your gravestone sounds beautiful.
