The funeral home just called and said that Ella's ashes will be ready to be picked up tomorrow...I'm releived to know she's being cremated today, but i'm also very sad now...I wanted this done, I wanted her to be able to rest in peace, but it feels so final now...I hope her urn comes today so I can bring her home tomorrow.

Hugs honey. I'm glad you are going to be able to bring her home soon but I felt the same way when I picked up my sons ashes. It makes it so final and it's so unfair that instead of bringing home a baby, we are bringing home a little baggy of ashes. When I brought my sons ashes home though, I was happy that we were all under one roof again like we should be.

I felt the same way when we went to pick up Cora's ashes. I was so glad that the wait was over, but it hurt so much to have it final like that. The funeral home was in the next town over, half an hour away. I cried all the way home, after we stopped at a book store and bought this picture:

I didn't get my ashes and stuff for about a month (because we special ordered a memory ball). It really didn't bother me, but I am sorry it is taking them so long. I was more upset about them not cremating his right away. They waited almost a week and I cried thinking about his body laying on a cold slab in the morgue every day. <3 to you.

that's what's upsetting me...It will be 2 weeks tomorrow since Ella was born, and she was just cremated yesterday....Last night I kept trying to get the thought out of my mind, but I just pictured her little body, i'm sure it looks awful laying in the cold morgue...It just made me feel so sad...Her Urn should be here tomorrow, so hopefully thursday I will bring her ashes home...I know we talked about doing a service, but i'm now rethinking it...It's already been 2 weeks, people aren't even talking about her and seem to be avoiding me all together...I just feel like I don't want to do anything now...I'm going to give myself a few more days to think about it.
