I can’t believe it’s been 4 months already. This month, the words aren’t flowing as easily. We took one more step in this journey this past month and picked out Dougie’s headstone. What a strange experience. We were excited to pick out something permanent for our sweet boy but also sad that we had to do that. We should have been picking out an outfit for pictures, but instead we were looking at slabs of granite to have our son’s name carved into. We struggled with what to pick. What would be good enough for our first born son?! If it were up to us, we would have picked a monument 100 ft tall, chose light beams to shoot up into the sky, and covered it in diamonds! To tell the world one small thing;
His life mattered!
