Maggie's Headstone

After Maggie's diagnosis we did a few things that would help prepare for her passing(i.e funeral arraignments, looking at headstones..... ). These things were not fun. Before her passing we went to the monument dealer to just see what there was and the prices. We really didn't think much about it anymore, until after Maggie passed. About 2 weeks after Maggie passed we received a phone call informing us that someone (who wishes to remain anonymous) had donated a large sum toward the purchase of Maggie's Headstone. We were very surprised! So we went and picked one out, again not a fun thing to do, and what we picked was paid for fully by the donation. We are truly grateful for that. Well her headstone was placed yesterday (unfortunately it had to happen on David's birthday). It was a hard thing to watch but not as hard I thought it would be. Now she has something that says she is there and that she lived. So without further ado, here is Maggie's stone

A beautiful headstone . . . I love the inscription "Maggie Smiles" . . . I know she's smiling right now from Heaven . . . God bless! :)

What a wonderful offer. We had Aleah creamated, but have plans on having a cremation bench placed in the cemetery. It'll be a few years before we can afford it.

I love the "Maggie Smiles".
