I cannot even begin to tell you how upset I am. Today started out great! I woke up and headed to Mrs. Prince's to work out. We are still attempting to drop the baby weight. I got a text from Foster and he wanted me to check out rental car prices for a trip we are taking to NC in a couple of weeks. Since I was having such a great time with Mrs. and Baby Prince, I asked if I could just use her computer. I decided to check my e-mail. I saw the email I have been waiting six weeks for, the email from the funeral home with the template of Rosie's headstone. It had the attached document with the sketch, but in the email she explained that the cemetery told her I could not have the quote I chose: "Lord, we wanted to sit our daughter on our laps and tell her about you, but since we can't, can You sit her on your lap and tell her about us" and I can't put "Born with angel wings April 20, 2010" either!!!!! St. Joseph's is a Catholic cemetery, and has a bunch of rules. This is what the headstone SHOULD have looked like. (The only change I was going to make was have the quote be in smaller, cursive script like her name):
I was devastated. I AM devastated. I tried to control my emotions in front of Mrs. Prince. My eyes started tearing up a little, but I did not react how I really wanted to. I came home and am now sobbing. It took me months to perfect what I wanted on Rosie's headstone. I wanted it perfect, and it was going to be. Now I need recommendations for a bible verse, because those are the only quotes we can put on it. I think I am going to take a trip down to the cemetery tomorrow after having lunch with a friend, and see what the other babies have on their stones. Ugh!
Please, if any of you know of any appropriate bible versus, I could use the suggestions, because there are a few I am thinking of, but I don't want to miss out on the perfect verse.
Thank you for listening.....
