Ryland's headstone was finally installed today...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Today we found out that Ryland's headstone was finally installed. So, I went up to see it and put the silk flowers there (and take home the pumpkin, mums, and stuffed animal that we had there marking his spot. I just got back from the cemetary. Oh my gosh, I barely made it there...just before I got there, the new Third Day song came on the radio, and that always makes me teary eyed. But this time I just lost it, and I wasn't doing so well at the cemetary. I was right..seeing the headstone would finally make it very very very real. Too real. The headstone is absolutely beautiful though...I decorated it with the flowers. It's just really hard to see your son's name written in brass on the ground. Noone should ever see those things...

For those that want to see, here are the pictures... I wanted you ladies to see them since so many of you helped us to be able to buy this for Ryland...we would not have been able to get this for him without you... Thank you so much to those of you who helped us to buy this for Ryland...it is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect memorial for our little angel. So thank you...

Its beautiful.
((hugs)))
I had the same experience when my son's grave got the headstone. It makes it so much more final.
To this day, (8 years later) I can barely stand to look at the pictures.

It's beautiful. I pray you have continued peace and healing. So many songs still make me cry, especially the songs that were playing back when my db died so I understand how the TD song would make you cry.
