We Did It!

Well John and I went down to Lilydale on Friday and have arranged Rani's Plaque and plot in the Rose Garden right in front of a beautiful Rose called Jean Galbraith Rose Bush. We also got a guarantee that the plaque would be ready by Christmas - so we just need to call 2 days before we want to do the interment service. It wasn't nice and neither of us slept much the night before hand...but it is done and it will be nice to have a place to go and visit Rani.

We ended up going with the poem that we put on the back of the card that we handed out at the Funeral.

It reads

'How very softly you tiptoed into our world
almost siletly
only a moment you stayed
but what an imprint your tiny footprints
have left in our hearts'

This is the brass plaque that we have ordered

In the top corners will be these little cherubs mirroring each other - we thought it was cute and the hair reminded us of her out of control hair.

Then in the centre oval just before the poem this picture of our baby girl. Happy, smiling and of course forever with a dummy :)

Thank you everyone for the poems and quotes that you emailed and left in the comments section. They were truly appreciated and beautiful...but we thought that the poem that we used was Rani.
