    Nursie 76, Thanks for the info. Oh well, I just won't be able to use all of the pics, another hard part, how do you pick out pics of a beautiful baby girl? Kathy

    Now...after you do your avatar...you are going to want to make a pretty signature...here are the instructions from Kathyaire:

    Go to this link:
    http://www.mylivesignature.com/mls_wizard1_1.php
    and follow the signature wizard instructions.
    Once you get the signature you want, then choose 'want to use this signature'
    then choose the 'generate BB code', then 'generate code for my hand written signature'. When the code is created, highlight it and copy it to the signature spot in your profile. Follow the steps exactly.

    Welcome, and my sympathy for your and your daughter's loss.
    Losing a child is against nature, so we will grieve more for their loss of a future.

    I remember seeing one memory quilt a long time ago, all I can see in my mind's eye is a lovely little girl's dress appliqued to the middle of the back of it, along with a rectangle under it with her DOB and DOD on it. The front had other clothes on it all around the edges, inside was patched with most of the child's other clothing.

    You might want to ask your daughter about what she thinks is the right thing to do. She will of course weep at the thought, but this is part of the healing process.

    All our sympathy to you, and may the healing start as you sew on this loving quilt.

    she is a cutie, patutie! I think my daughter paid 400 for mine, but her birth was intentional. Lucky me! My daughter raises Rotties, and she traines dogs, you know, kind of like the dog whisperer, Cesar Milan? So-o-o-o-o-o-o she has a fit with my dogs, 'cause she says mom, howdoes that make me look, your dogs are so spoiled and you let them get away with so much and i'm an obedience trainer. DUH! i just say oh well, i don't know what to tell you. My son and his wife have a Sheltie kennel, they are beautiful too!but i think they are a lot of work with all that hair and shedding. sorry, i just get going on dogs, or animals in general. kathy

    oh thank you ramona, but my daughter gave my a whole tote of her clothes, i think that it was most of her clothes. she also has a 12 year old, who was 8 at the time and he was such a strong little boy, because he loved his baby sister so they were almost inseperable, i think that made it even harder. i can still see her in her casket. my daughter had a crown of flowers made for her and her sister bought her some feather wings that she put on her. that really did it. i just couldn't say anything. kathy
