I’ve got some incredible news. After reading our story in the paper, Thomas Monument out of Indianapolis was kind enough to contact us and donate a headstone for Elias. I cannot convey our gratitude enough – and definitely not without crying!
We had already decided when we originally thought we were going to be able to buy the stone to have Koko (from Chuggington) engraved on it, so we already knew that much. They also gave us the option for a small verse of sorts. Nothing too long… but the whole “Beloved son, brother, grandson” is just so… I don’t even know what but I don’t care for it. It feels so generic and impersonal.
Does anyone have any suggestions of something? A nice verse, perhaps?
ETA: I probably should have mentioned that I’m not overly keen on Bible verses. I feel that, to put one on the stone, I would be the world’s biggest hypocrite.
