we were so blessed to have everything paid for. a man we go to church with (and he knows my family from way back. he knew my mom and grandma when they got baptized) owns a funeral home. we didn't have to pay for one thing. he took care of everything; they picked her up from the hospital, dressed her, paid for the casket, set up a whole viewing room for her, and set up the whole funeral. it was such a blessing because being college students there is no way we could afford it.
we have been coping pretty well i would say. i look at pictures of her A LOT. i can't get over how cute she was. we definitely have our moments of sadness but i think those will come for the rest of our lives. i also feel so much joy thinking about her. i'm still so proud to call her my daughter and to talk about her.
|we still don't have a stone for her. we are saving up for one. this is my grandpa's stone who she is buried with.|
