Today's the anni of his service. It was more than I could have imagined it'd be...intimate, with people I've known for years attending. Even some new co workers came, and they have given me such great support.

A year later, I can actually pity those that didn't come to witness the blessing of our most precious child.



On these pages are written the names of angels and their mommies/daddies. I gave away, and still have some left, pins of angels with a name attached...a child and parents to pray for nightly.


A passing picture of Deacon Marshall, for whom our son is named. Yes...it may look like a spot, but we choose to believe they are orbs..our son and my Mom.


ONe of my fav. pictures ever...no flash...just the lights shining through the stained glass onto my son. Awesome!

That looked like such a beautiful service, Heather!!!

It makes it alot easier to cope with knowing you've spent time remembering your baby with others.

Thank you! It was awesome that Deacon Marshall took his time to do this for us. He cried with us...we spoke of our "home" at the Church, and how, because Marshall welcomed us there, we could find no other name as fitting for our angel than that of our spiritual guide. We got to talk about Mom, and because most of the people there were old family friends, we were able to laugh and cry about them both. It was SO very special. One of my friends brough gifts to my daughters so they would know that this was their day too...they each got Care Bears, and the book "We were going to have a baby but we got an angel instead". Awesome!
