After nightmarish ordering/processing and mistakes, Logans headstone is finally up and correct. Over a year later, but it's there.

He is buried 4 hours away from me, so I just was able to visit this weekend when we went to see my family for Thanksgiving.

Ella was constantly looking at it and touching his picture, which broke my heart into a million pieces. I would give anything to have him here with her where he belongs.

anyway, here are some pics. We put up a little Christmas tree thing with ornaments but had to wire it to the little angel because it is SO windy up on the hill.

The front reads:
Logan Ray Gill
Born Into Heaven
October 6, 2008
Forever a son to
Mike and Laura Gill
Forever a twin brother to
Ella Ann Gill

The back reads:
A Note From Mommy
I love you my precious boy
You left your footprints
upon my very soul
and I will carry you
in my heart forever

May those who have
gone before hold you in
their arms until I can
hold you again in my mine

b/g twins Logan and Ella

Oh that second picture of Ella brought me to tears. I truly believe that babies know things we don't.

I'm so glad the headstone is up.

Laura, that is absolutely beautiful. And Ella touching his headstone is so sweet. Sad, but sweet.

It's beautiful. We're right now in the process of ordering a stone for Eric's grave. It's a very difficult thing to deal with.
