Jillian's Marker

Today Jillian's marker was installed. We are thrilled to finalyl have her marker there, and to have a vase to arrange some flowers...instead of shoving them in the ground! I will be on the hunt for some perfect flowers for her first arrangement!! Tonight I just added what was already out there.

We are not sure what we think of it yet. I mean it will work and we do like it, but we were thinking there would be more granite than concrete, but there sure is a big chun kof concrete around it. It will work though----we love the granite we picked out, and the angel we picked for the corner, and will remind us of Jillian everytime we visit. I think no matter what, it is hard to "fall in love" with a marker that represents a child you buried. We moved all of her special things and I am now on the hunt for a birthday flag! Just over a month and we will celebrate her 1 year birthday----wow, almost a year already?


After we got all of her special things moved...

I think it looks GREAT!! I'm sure it was really hard to 'fall in love' with a marker! But I bet it feels good to have her marker there!!

Still can't believe that in a month we will be celebrating her birthday already!!

I really like it and I like the vase too. You did a great job picking everything out - the Angel is precious. We'll have to stop by and see it the next time we are in IG. You do such a good job decorating for her - she truly had and has love all around her. I can't believe it will be a year next month. I'm sure - as always, but especially the upcoming month will be difficult. Will be praying and thinking of you extra!

~Much Love

I love the marker. It think it fits our little angel perfectly! I'm sure this was a very bittersweet process...
Sorry I couldn't see it while I was there!

I'm glad it's finally there and you have a vase to stick flowers in.

I like what you picked out for her but agree it's hard to really love something like that!

Looks very nice. When we started looking for Jack's we found out the meaning of the star and cross.

Thank you for sharing with us. I can imagine that is how we will feel when we finally put Lilly's marker down. I'm glad that you have a vase to put flowers in I am looking forward to that as well. Good luck in finding your first arrangement I'm sure it will be beautiful!
