I've talked to my husband and he said he honestly doesn't know what he feels like he needs from me about that.
Thereís just no words to comfort a parent that has lost a child. ĎIím sorryí just seems so lame; maybe thatís why a lot of people say the innocuous things they do. I donít know when you lost your baby girl, but I am so sorry that you had to experience that.

My boys are adults and it never occurred to me to ask them if it even mattered to them if I was cremated or buried. My family in general has always done cremation w/ no service and Iíve never visited a grave site. I think of my dad when I work in the garden because thatís what he loved and I think of my sister when Iím crafting because thatís what she loved. And pictures Ė Iím so thankful for all the pictures I have of the people I love, both living and gone.

Your boys are so young I donít see how you could possibly decide right now about what would be best when you die and Iím sorry youíre struggling with these questions.
