We Did It!

John and I went down to the Memorial Park today where we had Rani's Service.

We needed to go and see where we wanted to place her ashes. It was horrible driving down there...all the memories flooding back but we did what we needed to.

We walked all around the Park and finally decided that we like the Rose Garden...they do have a Baby Section...but it is just a strip of concrete in the grass and cluttered with toys and stuff on the other plots and the Rose Garden is much nicer.

We have to make an appointment (we later found to work out all of the final details. The lovely lady that we did speak to gave us a pack of information, prices, etc so when we go back we will have everything we want on her plaque and a little more prepared for the day, so that everything is organised fo rthe Service in December when my sister is home.

Plus Miss Rani put on a beautiful day for is 28 degree and just beautiful today...lovely for

Oh Mel love, big hugs, the Rose Garden sounds just beautiful for your darling baby girl. I'm sure your sister will really appreciate you having the service when she comes home.

Much love sweetie!

My Mum's first little baby was buried in a Rose Garden in Sydney too.

It must have been a very hard drive to make. Thinking of you all.

The rose garden sounds the PERFECT place for a princess! Roses are my favorite flower and now everytime i look at one, i shall think of the little princess.
I'm pleased you are so organised for your sister's visit, as hard as it's going to be, it's one hurdle down!Thinking of you often Mel...

Hi Mel, I pop in every now and then to see how you're getting on (first found you through Chris's blog) and just wanted to say hi. I think you are incredibly brave with everything you have been through. The Rose Garden sounds lovely.

Mel, I'm a bit of a lurker too - been thinking of you. (We've lost a little girl too so I sort of know what you're going thru). I have to say that it doesn't get easier but you DO learn to live with it. Thinking of you. xxJill

Roses? Perfect!!! How beautiful. I'd love to know the date so we can plant a mini rose bush ourselves. That would be fantastic - Alesia often looks at Ranis photo on my desk and says how lovely she looks, how happy and I've explained that she is in heaven now. We love you guys. Thinking of you xoxoxoxo

The Rose Garden is a lovely place, and I'm glad you could see it on a nice sunny day. Trevor's mum is not far from there, so you will have to tell us where and when we go to see mum and leave flowers, we can go say hi to your little Princess aswell. She may be gone from this earth as we know it but she is still here in all our hearts and will be forever.
