    Default Need help finding the perfect thing to say.

    I've been thinking about posting this for a few days now but I haven't because I've been worried about whether it would be inappropriate and I don't want to upset anyone.

    But I think I'm ready to start thinking about getting my baby girl a headstone and I would like help to find the perfect thing to put on it. I've been thinking of something like the following,
    I think I'm set on the beginning unless someone has another suggestion

    "In loving memory of
    Isabel Ann ......
    14/2/2009
    Not sure if we should have the date like that or like
    "14th Febuary 2009"

    It's the next part that I'm having the most trouble with I've been thinking of either of the following
    "Much loved daughter of Luke and Kylie
    and sister to a miscarried twin.
    Forever in our hearts"
    or
    "Much loved daughter of Luke and Kylie.
    And
    Her/Isabel's Twin
    2008
    Forever in our hearts."

    I'm not sure about loved because it's past tense but I still love her, and I would like to mention her twin but I don't want to take away from Isabel it is her headstone after all.



    I'm not sure but very open to any other suggestion because I feel that if I can't look after her in life then I want to look after her in death and this will be a standing memorial to her forever so I want it to be absolutly perfect.

    Please any suggestion would be more than appreciated.

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    I have no experience with this, but felt I couldn't leave your post without replying.
    Hope I do not offend.

    Maybe something like this:

    In loving memory of
    Isabel Ann
    14th February 2009
    Much loved daughter of Luke and Kylie
    Now playing in heaven with her twin
    Playing forever in our hearts.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I love what Marlene has put in about playing with her twin. That is very precious. The only thing I would say differently is 'beloved' instead of 'much loved'.

    Big hugs for you

    KAM, I am so very sorry for the loss of your babies.
    I really like what you have written in your OP. I don't think it is a bad thing to mention her twin on her headstone - I don't think it takes anything away from her.
    Your words are lovely.

    Ok so we may have come close to settling on something but because they don't use punctuation I'm a little worried it may sound fragmented or something, so your honest opinions. What do you think?

    I like it ... I'll maybe just make that second forever a Forever. With a capital.

    But otherwise it's really beautifull

    I really like it as well. I don't think it sounds fragmented at all, it's really lovely.

    A beautiful way to honour your twins.

    I am so sorry for you loss.

    I think it would be nice to include Isabel's twin on the headstone - I don't think it takes away from her, her twin is apart of who she is and the journey of how she came to be.

    I hope that you can find the perfect wording for Isabel's headstone.
