Thank you. I thought for a while of things I could do that would help my kids remember him.. photo collages were another idea, but I figured this way if they were feeling bad or if i was feeling bad it was the closest thing to a hug from him that we could get.

Default named a rose

Now Cheryl is no longer here, we realised, her never having any children that we, Mum Dad, and Hubby Alistair, were the closest people in her so short young life, we have so much to remember of this brave young girl. Like so many others will have experienced, when all the arrangements have been made the headstone is in place, a small picture sits there. Can this be all there was to have in memory of this so happy young life. Yes we have our memories but when we have gone which by all normal ways of life should have been before Cheryl. We searched for some way to do just a little more. We finally found we could name a rose and have this recorded in memory of Cheryl. So maybe some day someone will see a rose and wonder who had inspired it. Our precious young daughter may come to someones mind long after Mum and Dads tears have run dry and we too are beside our precious Cheryl.
