Finally

At long last Kendra's plaque has been completed and she was finally laid to rest. Exactly 3 months to the day after she died. We (just the family and the nanny) went out yesterday morning so that we could place her ashes into the grave and have it sealed. The plaque/gravestone is beautiful. The picture of her came out really well. There isn't really much more to say. Rest in peace, my beautiful baby.

She was laid to rest on her granny's birthday. Happy birthday Granny. And happy birthday to Grandpa for tomorrow.

I so often read your blog and want to comment, but just don't know what to say. Like nothing I could say or do would make you feel any better or help ease your loss. However, I think it's important from time to time to let you know that we haven't forgotten; haven't put Kendra's memory aside...she's always there in our hearts...and we miss her too...
The plaque looks beautiful, Vannessa. It was worth waiting for.
Thank you for this blogsite. I really admire your courage and openess. I'm sure it must be a great source of comfort and inspiration to others who are in similar situations or have experienced the loss of a loved one. Take care of yourself.
Lots of love to you all,
Clarissa xxx
