Today was the day we laid our little angel of music to rest. This morning I did not want to wake up, I knew I had to face this day one way or another. We helped each other get dressed, it was very cloudy & gloomy on the way to the funeral home. We got there early to spend time with Elizabeth, once I entered the room & saw her peacefully resting in her little coffin I completely lost it. I cried so hard I didn't care if people could hear me. My husband & I wrote letters to her which we read, my LO was there with us, she blew kisses at her sister which made me cry even more. Her innocence of her thinking her baby sis is just taking a nap. The open viewing was just for me my husband, MIL & his brother. I touched her little hands, hummed her some songs & kissed her forehead. Once it was time for family to come in, it was going to be closed casket.
All my family lives in FL, so it was only my in-laws side only that were able to come. Then we went to the cemetery to have the graveside service, the sun started to shine as if it was shinning bright for my Elizabeth. Seeing all of our co workers,bosses,friends & family there for support made me feel a bit at peace. And yes, people wore pink. At the end of the service, we all hugged said our thank yous, my husband & I had one more last moment in front of her little box. We told her we will always love her, we miss her & that she's our sunshine. We kissed her box and went to be with family. We saw where her little resting place will be, she has lots of little friends for company. Leaving the cemetery I felt empty but yet at peace knowing I can come here anytime to talk, cry , laugh & just be with my Elizabeth. Today, hopefully is the start of us healing all together as a family. One day at a time.
