Well yesterday we went to Bucks County Soapstone to design Owen's headstone.  They don't normally do headstones but, I think they did a really good job!  Let's not forget about the turn around time! We went there at 1pm yesterday and it was ready to be picked up today. Now we just have to get it in the ground...
Those are his actual sized prints that the nurse did after he passed.

 Getting his headstone made really felt good. I think it helps with the grieving process to get this kind of stuff done. I guess it's a comfort thing. Knowing this is what you will see everytime you go up to visit his site for the rest of your life.  It's weird to think that in 10 years when we go to visit the Angel Garden, how many more babies will be buried. How many more families will feel what we feel? To know what we are going through? Owen already had another neighbor buried next to him. How long till his whole row is filled?
And we think they have it bad but, in reality they're the ones who are much better off.


  1. Beautiful. They did an amazing job.

  2. There is certainly something to be said about headstones...

    It's finalizing in one aspect but it's so honoring in the next.

    I love the verse you chose.
    Beautiful stone.

  3. I love it. It is so special to have his prints on there! How precious.
