I bought a kit to make a garden stone for Ella today...Just wondering if anyone had any ideas of a short saying to put on it, along with her name? I thought of putting her name birth date etc, but I don't know if that would look too much like a headstone...I was thinking a short verse or saying? I might go back and get another one for the other baby too...It's hard since I didn't have a name or know gender.

There is a thread below "Songs" that also links to another thread with more songs that have some great lines in them.


We are big Elvis Costello Fans. He does a version of "The Very thought of you" which I love. On Seth's stone we put

"I see your face in every flower"

I think that would be great for a garden stone too but if that doesn't speak to you there are are lots of great ones to choose from in the thread.

Cora's will say "If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever."

I also like the last line of the chorus of "Incomplete" by the Backstreet Boys

"Without you all I'm going to be is incomplete."

I love the saying I found on ~ of all things ~ a paperweight at Cracker Barrel. It says:

I love you.


~For Always.

I will never forget.

I've thought about picking one up for myself to put on the headstone.

That is a great idea. I like the sayings the other women have posted. I might have to do something similar when we have a yard to put a stone in.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7
