Spencer and I spent most our day running errands. While we were driving around Spencer asked me if I wanted to go to the Cemetery? Yes was my reply. When I got there all of the flowers from the funeral were dead and blown all over the place. This bothered me something terrible. I felt that he had only been gone 3 weeks today and that I had already failed as a Mother to do something for him. I left the Cemetery in tears. Spencer being the Husband that I love dearly, drove me straight to the JoAnn's and told me to buy something for Sage and that he would take me back to the Cemetery. I decided that he needed some type of headstone until, Uncle Kenny's got replaced and Sage's headstone gets ordered. When we left the 2nd time it was easier because, I felt like I did something to take care of my baby. I pray daily for Sage and I know that he is where the Lord needs him to be and that he is watching over all of us. I want to Celebrate Easter with cheer and have joy in my heart! Sage because of what our Savior Jesus Christ did for us, I know that Daddy and I will get to be with you again someday! Families truly are forever! Love You Through Eternity!
I tell myself that God gave my children many gifts - spirit, beauty, intelligence, the capacity to make friends and to inspire respect. There is only one gift he held back - length of life. ` Rose Kennedy

What We Believe
A Single Life
By Greg Olson
"Making the decision to have a child-it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." -Elizabeth Stone
The Prophet Joseph Smith States
"The Lord takes many away even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man, and the sorrows and evils of this present world; they were to pure, to lovely, to live on earth; therefore if rightly considered, instead of mourning we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall soon have them again."
He further explained:
"All children are redeemed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and the moment that children leave this world, they are taken to the bosom of Abraham."
"Time Heals All Wounds"
It has been said, "Time Heals all wounds." I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. `Rose Kennedy

Something To Think About
A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. But...there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that's how awful the loss is! - Neugeboren 1976, 154
