Making Memories

Kelvin I and I worked hard in the next week before the funeral to ensure there were a collection of items to prove that Sybella had existed. We planted a rose bush in her honour, and named it "Sybella's Rose." I planted a garden for her with lots of colourful flowers. We made a shrine with photos, candles and her birth/death notice. We had her hands and feet moulded, cast and framed. I had a commemorative birth certificate framed, and it hangs on the wall. Kelvin got a tattoo with Sybella's initials and her date of birth. They were just "things" and would never be the same as holding our baby girl in our arms, but they helped.
