It’s been a little over a year and a half since we lost our much wanted baby girl. Today we went to visit the grave. This is the first time we’ve been back since we left Newcastle at the end of March 2011. We tried to get there in March this year but were waylaid and detoured by floods.
After laying her to rest on the 17 March 2011 we had a cross on her grave some artificial flowers to adorn it. Jireh who was 17 months at the time called it “Serenity’s Garden”.
Serenity’s Garden – March 17, 2011
This week each of the children and Mike and I picked a tile and a picture to stick on it, each reflecting our individual taste, to make a more permanent marker for her grave.
We sprayed the tiles with Water Shed to protect them from the weather.
After flattening off the grave site, removing the weeds and artificial flowers we laid the tiles in place. The girls also brought some more flowers and an angel.
As the sun went down, we all left the cemetery with different, yet similar emotions. Our little angel only leant for such a short time. Deeply missed and forever loved.
