I am a woman trying to find her place in this world. I have an awesome son. And, I am married to someone who is as perfect for me as someone can be. We are still mourning the loss of my daughter. We are working through it. We are still trying to find happiness in the grief. It is there. I want to help others find it with us.

We All Say Goodbye
I haven't told everyone the story about Sarah's casket. Seeing as how we were all very emotional, I may not get it just right. But, when we stepped into the room to pick out a casket we were a little overwhelmed. It is the last decision we made. He showed us the cheaper caskets, knowing we didn't want to spend a ton of money. We were looking at the next to the cheapest. Then Ty looked at the least expensive one and popped off, "It looks like duct tape!" We had just had a conversation about how She loved duct tape and sharpies. The funeral home owner took off and ran back in with a sharpie. Sure enough, it would stay on the casket. So, we decided that it might help her friends and family say good bye if they could leave her a message. My mother knew that We would not be able to read all of the signatures. So, she took pictures of many of them for us to read later. I have just got to the point where I could read them this week.
The Duct Tape bow is still there.
I considered sharing these on Facebook. But, decided that this was a much better venue.
