Graveside for our Daughter

After my sobbing into my dads shoulder our family went on our first limo ride to the cemetery not the first place I would want to go in a limo.  On the way there I held on to my daughters bed wishing that it was a infant car seat instead of something that will go into the ground.  We got to the cemetery I said my last private goodbye to her I let her know how much she is loved by her dad and I and all of her family.  I got out of the limo and started the walk over to the chair that was right in front of her grave.  My daughter is buried in my moms plot so she will be standing on my moms shoulders.  I love that she will be with my mom.  I kept my sunglasses on.  I felt like I was a movie star you know when everyone is wondering who it is that is hiding their face.  But this time I was hiding my face to cover all the tears that were in my eyes.  I was sad and broken.  It was a beautiful graveside.  My little angel got to hear from all of her grandparents and her aunt B.  My friend who is so kind prepared a song for us on her cello.  I held onto my little nephew R and just rubbed his back thinking one day we will have our children with us again.  My nephew finally fell asleep on our lap and we just sat there with the love of my siblings surrounding us.  It was simply the best for my daughter to celebrate her life with us.  I couldn’t stay to watch her get lowered into the ground my husband and I went with our friend to the luncheon and I waited as my family helped my daughters body into the ground.  We Love Our Little Angel L And We Miss Her Every Day!!!

Alma 40:23

23: The soul shall be restored to the body, and the body to the soul; yea, and every limb and joint shall be restored to its body; yea,, even a hair of the head shall not be lost; but all things shall be restored to their proper and perfect frame.

So until that day were going to remember how perfect our daughter was and we can wait until we meet again!
