We all have a different way of Remembering Our Precious Angels - how do you remember your angel? Post your memorials here or write of how you remember your angel.





This tattoo was done for Rebecca - it isn't my design but I expanded the orginal and put more color into it - I am really pleased with it. A constant reminder of my daughter plus in the summer it sparks conversation and allows for me to bring up my daughter



This is her shelf in my entertainment center -

I have a photo that I keep with me at all times. I would post it but I don't want to offend anybody. With me it does not bother me to see a picture of child that has passed but it does bother some.

DH and I wrote Gracie a letter and slipped it into her casket before they closed it. I made an exact copy of it for myself to look at later.

Here is a pic of a quilt I had made for my Gracie. Because we knew beforehand she would pass away before birth or shortly after, I had a small one made to wrap her in the casket. This is the matching one that I plan on having her name and date of delivery embroidered on:


Pic of the mizpah coin we bought. Gracie has one half around her neck, and I have the other half. It says "The Lord watch between me and thee while we are apart from one another". It's a quote from Genesis.


A scan of the rosary I had made from the petals of the pink roses we had at her funeral:

I am very lucky to have a large collection of items.
I have a photo albumb with photos and cards. We recieved so many cards due to the fact we found out Elizabeth had anencephaly at the 19 week scan, and had many people praying for us the remaining 14 weeks of the pregnancy. (she was born at 33 weeks)
On my buffet I have a picture frame wich looks like a wardrobe frount and it can be open or closed. A large white candle that I had made up with her name and date of birth. I also have a clay hand and foot print mould but this is away as I'm too scared my other kids will break it. I also have a knitted jacket my friend made for her, we had the matching booties on her when she was buried. I also have 2 hats.
We also have some of the lovley pink roses made for her funeral by a dear lady who has since past on due to cancer.

Just remembered another one! DH and I had Hope and Grace engraved on the inside of our wedding rings. Hope was the baby I m/c, and Grace was my stillbirth. It's so small, it wouldn't show up on a pic, but you get the idea.

I have a shelf and on it are dried flowers we received at the time. The urn is in a tiny crib with a dolly and a picture of me at 4 months about 5 weeks before the baby died. It is the only picture I have of myself pregnant. A candle to burn in honor.

So I found the poem I wrote. When I wrote it, I was in contact with two other women who I knew online, so the poem is dedicated to their babies as well.

In loving memory of Cora, Jules, and Trace:

Nothing can match a mother's joy
To learn there's a life inside
Nothing can compare to the pain she feels
when she discovers that life has died
Something inside you rips apart
and every part of you silently screams.
Nothing in your life seems fair anymore,
it's torn apart all of your dreams.

You have so many numberless questions,
to be answered only by the Lord above.
You ask most, "What's the reason
for a mother's unrequited love?"

As time goes by the pain lessens
but nothing can ever fill the loss.
You remember all the plans you had
for all the years you could see across.
And you hope that life goes on,
that your baby's short time isn't the end.
You hope one day you'll hold her again,
that maybe your broken heart will mend.

The human soul and heart are eternal,
that's the mercy of the Lord above.
And one day I hope to find the reason
for a mother's unrequited love.

~Memorial Day, 2006~

I also took some pics of Cora's memorials. There are a couple of pictures that I bought, plus a picture of my "coffee table" (my hope chest with a piece of fabric draped over it) with Cora's handprint frame, her urn (full of small rocks from Jenny Lake, where we spread her ashes) and several large rocks from Jenny Lake.

DH also has a picture of Jenny Lake as his desktop background.
