Our Visit to the grave

After thinking how hard it was going to be and how would we all feel it turned out better than we had thought. It was still a very sad day for us but it went well.

We were very suprised to see everything we have been complaining about (grave marker) finally fixed. After three times of resetting the marker it was finally level to the ground. Which took two times being sent back to the marker maker to be re set on different stone. The photo of me holding Katlyne was finally set on the stone correctly (we wanted on the stone and not on the marker- long story and tons of extra money). And they finally planted grass around her site. Not bad for 1 year and 1.2 of complaints. i guess they figured since we lived out of town we wouldn't be there that much and wouldn't complain. Anyway,...I replaced the flowers with all fall flowers and of course had to get her a pumpkin which Drew and Kyle decided it needed to be decorated which they were more than happy drawing a jack o latern face.

Now that the stores are starting to put out the christmas things its time for me to start making her grave blanket which we will bring up at thanksgiving.

T,

Glad your visit was good and that Katlyne's site is looking perfect. I'm sure she was looking down on her pumpkin and smiling.

You guys were on my mind all weekend.
Thanks for letting us know how it went.
These are very personal times for you and your family.

And to hear that those things were fixed to your likings I'm sure made it more comfortable.
And Casey got to be near his big sis- what a moment to remember!
Jack-o-lanterns, fall flowers and a blanket to come- what a special girl!

Love and hugs!
