I like your idea of the butterfly. I work at a hospital, and when a mother suffers a loss of a newborn, the staff always put butterflies on the doors of these Moms, as a way of alerting staff that there has been a loss....and I know Maureen would understand the meaning of the butterfly, without my saying so.
