Here are some pictures from Francis' burial on Saturday, June 6, at Holy Cross Cemetery
|Laying Francis to rest. |
The coffin and blanket on top were provided by the funeral home.
I was given the blanket to keep.
|Francis' name will be carved on this stone.|

|Francis was buried in a section of the cemetery specifically for babies under 20 weeks gestation. |
It's called the Rachel Section and has this statue next to the headstones.
(Didn't notice 'til later that one of the cemetery employees was behind the tree.)
This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing Francis with us, and may you look forward in joyful hope to the heavenly reunion!ReplyDelete
This was a beautiful way to honor a well loved child. I'm sorry you had to plan a funeral. I'm grateful you gave Francis so much dignity. Sweet Francis, you will be missed!ReplyDelete
I am so sorry for your loss. The interment looks lovely and I hope it give your family comfort. Thinking healthy thoughts for you and a speedy recovery.ReplyDelete
I've been meaning to come and comment ever since I saw that you lost your sweet baby. I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers have been with you the last couple weeks. I've had three miscarriages, including a "missed" miscarriage very similar to yours with Francis. It's so hard.ReplyDelete
