Doing Things In Her Name. *Marly* Due November 11; 1 child; 1 angel baby; California 318 posts

On March 29th my daughter was born sleeping. Lately my sister and I have been thinking of things to do in her name or about donating to different organizations such as Now I Lay me Down To Sleep. We were also thinking of maybe starting a new local Organization. There is a place in my town that does Flower preservations. I took some flowers from my daughter's funeral and had them preserved. One of the option is a heart that hangs and its about $40 and I got one for everyone in my family. So I was thinking of maybe raising money so that I can offer this to other people who are interested. So I was just wondering what you ladies thought. Is this something you would want if you were in a smiliar situation or do you think not many family would be interested.
here is a pictures of the hanging heart that I would be offering

I also got this one but because of the price ($400) I would not offer it.l_f8448ea1c13c49198c220ff0126243c0.jpg

Thank all you ladies so much for taking the time to read this post and to those who read my blog. Yea 400 is a lot especailly when i was also trying to pay for her funeral but it is completly worth it. Everything was custom made the border and all. It even says her name on it too. It would be awesome to be able to do them myself but it would be a lot of work and money to buy the equitment to do them. but again Thank YOU All!
