Liam's Burial May 16, 2011

LIAM MY LOVE! I couldn't handle nothing being on his grave so I had to add a few things.
Liam's burial was short and sweet which is what we wanted since we already had the funeral back in January. I was happy that we had such wonderful weather, the sky was clear, sunny, and there was a light breeze. Both the banner and the cross looked wonderful and I was happy we had something to set out by his grave during the service.

We had the same girl who sang at Liam's funeral come back and she sang the song "You are mine" for the burial. I thought it was so sweet of her to come out and sing for us again. We even heard that she had never done that for anyone before other than for her grandfather, so I was very touched that she did this for us and for Liam.

After the service was over Dereck set Liam's coffin into the hole and we covered it in rose petals and laid a few other flowers over his casket. The rest of the family then left, but I wanted to stay and watch it get covered. It was amazing that by the time it was covered with the sod you could barely tell a coffin had just been buried there.

The same bamboo cross from the funeral with fresh flowers. 

We didn't like that the sign with his name on it to mark his grave didn't have a picture of him so we added some to it. And the angel statue is from Liam's Grandma.

It's been over a week and half since I laid those sticks on Liam's grave and was excited to see that they were still there! Liam's Grandma brought the bouquet of flowers and a good friend of mine laid the flowers around his grave for Memorial Weekend.


  1. So beautiful. I love what you wrote on his grave.

  2. Such beautiful photos from what must have been such a hard day for you. Love to you and Liam always xoxo

  3. "Liam My Love" :)

    I'm so glad the weather cooperated for his burial day.

  4. Liam's spot looks beautiful. I love his name spelled out in twigs. Meredith's resting place has always been special to me, even though I know she is in Heaven, but her little earthly remains are there.

  5. I am new to your blog and just wanted to say how my heart breaks for the loss of your son Liam. These are beautiful photos.. thank you for sharing.

  6. Thank you for sharing. It must have been so hard to bury your little boy. We have our daughters ashes and are trying to figure out the best thing to do with them. I am not ready to be separated from them yet, so we will wait until I'm ready (if that ever happens...).
    Thinking of your family and little Liam.

  7. It's heart breaking to bury a baby. I really wish Liam were with you. Its so cruel. I'm so touched and moved by the pictures. Lot of love to you and baby Liam.

  8. Thank you for sharing this. You did such a wonderful job! Thinking about you and your family
